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.

A pale clear gold with not much head. Unexpectedly crisp and dry with very short flavors. Good refreshing style.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341ml bottle from the LCBO. nice zesty hoppy citrus nose. lean wheaty malt body, not asmuchhop flavour as the nose would indicate. clean and refreshing.

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 Canada’s 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.

I had this from a bottle and on tap, and wow, what a difference! The bottle was totally skunked, like an old-school Heineken from back when they actually did import it. I loved that skunked Saaz! Still do. Anyway, what a surprise to find this on tap with a totally different flavour profile: spicy and softly wheaty, with much lower-key hop presence. Not bad either way actually.

Poured a hazy gold....weak heading does not last long, spritzy carbonation...average palate, not dry but not overly malty either. A nice balanced blend of hop and wheat and biscuit malts with a quick clean finish. Unoffensive not bland but average. A serviceable domestic rendition of a Berliner Wiess

On draught in an urban environment. The Mo’ in London, ON- Shared with another rural beer lover, we are both now urbanites as a result of this beer. Hazed and dense custard/gold with a creamy white cap. Aromas are grainy, wheaty, with lemon and a bit of biscuit. Creamy, with medium sweetness and low bitterness. Quite fruity but comes across overly grainy. A good beer.

On tap at Highway 61. Pours a slightly cloudy dull golden yellow with small white head. Aroma is light grainy wheat . Taste is wheaty with slight fruitiness. Nothing special but not bad.

On tap at random restaurant in Toronto.
Appearance : Pale hazy yellow with small head.
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.
Overall : Nothing really interesting. Correct wheat flavours, quite drinkable and rather refreshing.
