This hefeweizen from Denison’s Brewing Company in Toronto, Ontario pours a hazy, slightly rusty yellow colour with a very frothy white head that leaves thick rings of lace and settles as a long-lasting pencil thick cap. Denison’s Weissbier has a classic blend of aromas including lightly toasted wheat, yeast, cloves and bubblegum with accents of lemon peel and clove.
The taste of Denison’s Weissbier is very easygoing. Wheat, banana, yeast and bubblegum flavours lead to a tart, lemony and slightly earthy finish. Though the ale has a thin body and mild carbonation, yeast sparks on the tongue and the mouthfeel is rather creamy. The aftertaste carries a mild yeast flavour.
Stereovision from Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery in Barrie, Ontario pours a deep, coppery amber colour with a frothy off-white head that leaves a fair amount of lace and is retained as a thick cap. This hopped-up American pale wheat ale has aromas of crystal malts, toasted wheat, lemon peel, clove, pepper, wildflower, honey and lychee.
The taste of Stereovision is mildly bitter, floral and slightly soapy, with notes of citrus rind, toasted wheat and tea biscuit. The ale has a thin body and mild carbonation, though the cap aids a creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel. The finish is dry and tart, with pepper, earth, metal and wheat coming through in the aftertaste.
