Koninklijke Grolsch Grolsch Weizen Hefeweizen at 5.1% ABV (C$3.89 at Okotoks Co-Op, 500 ml, packaged on 9-Mar-2019, best before 9-Mar-2020, acquired 7-Sep-2019, reviewed 7-Sep-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy medium gold with three fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: big banana, clove, wheat. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, light peppery spice. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, sweetish slightly spicy finish. (3/5)

A fair bit better than I expected, especially since when I looked it up on the usual suspects, I see it’s also marketed as “Premium Weizen” – which as well all know is pretty well nigh-on a dead-cert guarantee it’s gonna blow goats. This, well, doesn’t blow goats. It’s not great, but I guess it’ll do in a pinch. (14/20)
