In Toronto. From green twist-off bottle into jar-like glass. Light gold with the slightest haze. Thin, bright white head, thinnish but staying. Zesty, citrusy aroma, but not in a wheat/weiss/wit kind of way--more like a lager or a summer ale. Some off notes (a bit skunky). Very soft palate. Super sessionable, but I think it sacrifices flavor to do so--arguably thin and watery, if drinkable. I donít get much of the usual wheat qualities in this beer.

Was surprise to see this one in an Ottawa LCBO (as 416 is a Toronto area code - and we all know how we feel about that in Canadaís Nation Capital :). Pours a hazy light golden colour with a white head that gives out nice dirty lacing. Great fresh spicy wheat nose (which surprised me also, coming from Amsterdam). Pretty good for a light beer with a refreshing wheat mouthfeel. Grainy flavours with soft hops in the finish. I see lots of resemblance to Steam Whistle, hints of the same thing in the smell and taste. Even the nice simple bottle presentation is close to its competition. Not as good as SW, but better than most Amsterdam brews. The plus for this one is the unfiltered aspect. Great for the warm days we are having right now - and hockey playoffs that are still on.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2012
smells skunky, green bottle. A little astringent on the leave but otherwise tastes like lager. If urban wheat means this is supposed to taste like a dirty public telephone then this is certainly the 416... Bottle at Teds collision.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of malted wheat, flowers, and a hint of lemon. Dry and wheaty in the moiuth, with a bit of mineral on the finish. Light bodied and mild tasting. Would be ok on a patio on a hot summer afternoon, but lacks potency.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
It is what it is. Aroma is grassy, no head for me, too thin (which is a sentiment that rises a lot with these Toronto beers). Yeah itís refreshing and thus good for patio weather, but why go for this when you can get a Dennisonís... oh yeah because theyíre hard to find. I like the (almost provocative) name, itís rare for companies to be outspoken in their love for Hogtown... but thatís really the best thing I can say about this, just another beer.

BreWedge (325) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
On tap @ Mullins in Toronto. Appearance was a mildly hazy pale yellow with minimal head. Aroma was subtle pine hops. Gentle pine hoppiness, citrus, and some malt/grain. Astringent, thin mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Supposedly a wheat ale, but only in appearance. Taste/aroma is an IPA. Not a bad beer, go for it if you like a subtle IPA.

Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
Wychwood Barns pint. Initially hoppy and interesting, but then just thin for a wheat beer. Yellow, not too interesting or that drinkable.

DerWeg (1502) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2012
A pale clear gold with not much head. Unexpectedly crisp and dry with very short flavors. Good refreshing style.

I tried this beer on February 3, 2012 at "Cíest What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a clear gold colour with a slight haze and almost no head. The aroma was wheat, grass, and some floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was wheat and some mild citrus.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
A golden wheat ale with a thick receding white head. In aroma, a light citrusy and lemony malt with skunky notes. In mouth, a light sweet grainy and lemony malt with German hops, mineral notes, rather boring. Bottle from Probstk, shared with GRM, Dec. 11 2011.
