Bottled. Pours a pleasant clear yellow-gold colour. Clean tasty palate, with lemon and light bread flavours. Refreshing and light, a good interpretation of a German kristalweiss

Can. Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma of candied fruits, orange and overripe banana. Sweet, fruity flavour, more overripe fruit. Not your average wheat ale, but not something I really want to drink again.

I was really looking forward to this beer. It marked a shift in our local LCís from big Canadian piss lagers to craft breweries being carried. Sadly this beer didnít help the cause. Itís a pale corn-yellow with no head that looks and tastes hardly better than a skunky, metallic old (insert macro lager here). I wish they would have sent their better brews over, now none are carried.

I usually donít get offended my wheat beer, but this one did exactly that. Maybe it was a bad batch, but it was all together unpleasant. Tasted of wheat gone bad and stale cereal, add a little skunk as well. After taste wasnít much better as it was hard to finish the can, before it got too warm.

Sample on tap at Craft beer Market (Vancouver). Pours clear wheaty blond. Aroma: malt, distant hops and citrus. Taste is only malty. Refeshing I guess, but nothing to write home about here...

Clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is very faint tofee and grain. Slightly sweet and a bit crisp. Thin mouth with average carbonation. Inoffensive and uninspiring.

Rating #4. Boring beer. Pours to an unappetizing color with little aroma. Medium white head that doesn't last. Smells like a farm field and taste like grass or wheat but no hints of fruit or sweetness to take dullness away. Typical mediocre Big Rock beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341 ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is wheat with some fruit and grass. Flavor is the same with a slight citrus finish. Watery and kind of boring.

MunBro (317) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Aroma of straw and corn. Typical golden yellow color. Not a very exciting one but itís easy to drink and very refreshing on a patio in the summer. Hints of lemon while drinking on top of corn malts straw and wheat.

NatKadaw (95) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
From bottle. Pours oily yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Carbonation disappears completely. Flavor is corn syrup and wheat. Not a pretty looking beer in the glass, smells unappealing, flavor is better than it looks, but thin and syrupy.
