A hefeweizen from Vancouver, British Columbia, Hey Day is a representative of Granville Island Brewing Co.'s "Under the Bridge Series." Sold in 473mL cans, the hefe is a cloudy orange grog with a thick white head. It contains 5% alcohol and 15 IBUs.
To my nose, this wheat ale smells potently of bananas. The flavour has a similar bent, though supplemented by a light spice note. The mouthfeel is mellow and mild, with little bitterness and much refreshment.
I liked this beer alright, but found it to be a bit too sweet for comfort. All in all, a fine wheat that I may well repurchase, but nothing remarkable or momentous.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
