Commercial Description

This unfiltered wheat ale is a West Coast favourite. Enjoy ROBSON ST. HEFEWEIZEN chilled in a tall, slim glass and although our brewmaster may scoff, a lemon wedge is the perfect accessory to the natural fruit flavours of this refreshing beer.

    Another product by Granville Island which was part of their Summer Mingler 12-pack I got at my grocery store.

    341ml bottle served in a weizen glass at 4 degrees:

    The pours is orange/golden and slightly hazy. Microcarbs are spotted through the glass and you only get a thin white head which dissipates quickly, not even leaving a trace.

    The nose is mostly grainy and sweet with cloves melon and banana coming through. You don't get many hoppy or yeasty features except a faint grassy element way in the back.

    On the tongue, you get a mix of caramel, banana and melon all wrapped in a thin grassy blanket. The brew shows a moderate density and finishes very abruptly. A timid bitterness tickles the back of the palate some time after your sip.

    Overall I liked this beer. I'm not well educated when it comes to Hefeweizen brews, but I think it would pair up nicely with hearty brunch or on its own on a hot summer day. Light, sweet and easy going brew. Cheers!
