2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unpretentious refreshing and drinkable. Grainy with a foamy head, wheat-citrusy flavours are there but aren’t too intense. Nothing spectacular, but a fairly solid wheat beer that’ll do it if you are in the mood for one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml bottle (funky!) from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 23OC11.
App.: Slightly hazy golden with a decent rocky white head.
Aroma: Toasted wheat/grain/cereal, minerals, faint esters/fruity notes, a little raw wheat, vague hints of brightness, above average for a “wheat ale”.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: A little biscuit, toasted wheat/grain/cereal, minerals, a slight citric note, fairly clean; dry with barely any bitterness and a clean, slightly malty finish.
Competes with other “posh”, urban, condo owner beers.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This wheat beer poured a cloudy, light yellow colour with a nice, big, bright white head. To the nose there are scents of skunk and eggs. Obviously off. The green bottle probably didn’t help. Other scents include milk, spice, bread and a little glue? First sip was smooth and a little watery with flavours of light bitter hops, a little spice and bread. Finish has a medium hops flavour and a slight bitterness. Palate is bitter with hops til the end.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught or bottle (I didn’t note it) at Golden Tap Awards 2011, beerbistro. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is mild, grainy and a bit sweet along with some fruit -- pretty dull. Flavour of grain and wheat, watery and a bit tart, and with some fruit. Average bodied. I didn’t much care for this, it’s not for me.

Aroma : Grain and light honey. Light wheat. No lacing.
Taste : Wheat and grain with notes of honey and corn. Other cheap beer compounds. Finish light wheat and light citrusy notes. Some corn too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Cadillac Lounge. Very pale yellow colour with a very tight creamy white head. The aroma is lightly hoppy with a distinct herbal hop aroma. A touch of floral character and some distinct wheatiness. Fairly full bodied with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. A pretty thirst-quenching light wheat ale. Just a touch of citrus and a very light bitterness. It’s not really my style, but technically it hits the right notes.
