Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you havenít, weíve bottled it for you. Itís prairie goodness so pure that no matter where you choose to enjoy it, just close your eyes to find yourself in that field of dreams.

Little Known Fact
Truly a home-grown, honest-to-goodness Albertan beer. All of Grasshopperís wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

Patrickctenchi (6089) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle: Clear, medium gold...small white head. Wheat, grain aroma. Taste is sweet, honey-wheat malt... Very plain..more like a better-than-average pale lager....not very wheaty, really.....more a grass/straw base. Doesnít taste bad, at all.....just quite forgettable......not very lively.

Bottle. Lactic wheat and barley malt aroma. Bright golden yellow with giant head. Lightly sweet wheat malt and hay flavor. Light body. Bland.

Iíve had this a few times before but for this one it was a 355 ml can poured at home. Smell is....off. I canít pinpoint it (others say wheat or hay) other than to say it is sweet, but it reminds me of something rotting. Sweet to taste, with lemon and orange flavoring. Like i said, iíve had it a few times and have never really enjoyed it.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 330ml bottle from the only cafe. Transparent straw/gold with very thin white head. Sweet biscuit and cereal aromas. An American interpretation is immediately apparent on the nose. Some sweetness, hay. Nice carbonation level. Sessionable, enjoyable,

Strong sweet wheat aroma and a decent head with a golden body flavour isstrong hoppy lagerness with a hint. Of wheat. just okay.

RhetoricalAns (851) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow gold pour with a thin white head that disappears without a trace. Light wheat malt aroma. Taste has a bit of citrus and sweetness to it. Quite light body with a fair bit of carbonation.

sulawang (1049) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Visual: Part of a variety 12-pack, aluminum cans. Pours clear golden yellow-orange, no head, thin ringed retention, many steady streams. Nose: Almost mute; just a touch of grainy barley malt. (lvl-1)-pungency Attack: crisp, incoming grainy malts Mid-palate: thin-bodied, watery mouthfeel, light fizzy, (lvl-4)-sweetness, light metallic, (MAIN) barley malt, bready-grainy, a hint of spiciness + citrus Finish: a touch yeasty, malty sweet finish. Summary: Donít bother, nothing special here. Drinks like a mainstream lager.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
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

ljthiessen (1138) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
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.
