Granville Island Brewing – Hey Day Hefeweizen

IMG_0394

Vancouver’s Granville Island Brewing has, in it’s Under the Bridge Series, the Hey Day Hefeweizen.

Not super cloudy, I can see shapes on the otherside but it is cloudy enough that I feel like it is a Hefeweizen.  It is a pleasant orange-gold colour with a startlingly white head.

There is a nice grassy aroma from the beer, a little bit of hay and a hint of banana.  A little bit of spice comes out if you swirl the beer.

Banana is at the forefront of the flavours up against a dryness that makes the banana nice rather than cloying.  There are some nice clove and allspice notes underneath the main flavour.  The carbonation is a bit prickly, you can feel it going down in a satisfying way.
