KansaiBeerLvrs (2163) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Big Rock in Seoul. Very clear for a wheat beer, nice fluffy head. Served with a slice of lemon so a citrus aroma. Not too good flavor, a bit sour with just a hint of spice but pretty bland. Red Rock reminds me of your average Japanese craft brewery, making kind of bland beers but then again maybe that’s only the beer available in Seoul.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de blé, léger de caramel butterscotch avec des notes de miel, de grains, de houblon herbeux et de fruits (citron). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faibles notes fruitées (citron) lors de l’entrée en bouche rapidement suivi d’un moyen goût de blé aux petites notes acides, un léger goût de grains de céréales sucrées avec des notes de miel et quelques traces de caramel puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût court, composé de notes de blé et de houblon herbeux.

I had some really good beers on this trip. This wasn’t one of them. Faint lemon and wheat. Nothing else to speak of.

0.33 l can at Whistler. Low aroma, but interesting taste... Quite drinkable...

For the two weeks of summer in Calgary this is a refreshing drink. It has a nice aroma and a great taste. Add a twist of lemon to it and you have a boulder Canadian version of Corona.

Well, it’s not horrible, this is a passable brew, in fact, I would gladly trade the rest of the Big Rock Honey Brown in my fridge for some of this. Slight citrous aroma, bit of honey flavour.....

Il manque un nez et il est creux. C’est une bière de blé très léger. Il est ambrée pale, pas même proche à être blanche comme une vrai bière de blé.

pilgrimoutlaw (776) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On tap at Moxi’s. Pours light golden with two finger white head. Wheat, lemon, pepper, straw. Mild sweetness and bitterness. Not the best in the world, but probably the best at Moxi’s.

hay, cereal, grass, citrus, pale, golden, clear, hazy, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent Spent a summer enjoying this beer years ago. Since I was introduced to German hefe I know better! Golden pour with slight head, citrus is faint (now that I don’t automatically squeeze in the lemon) and a light bitter sweet graininess. Thin mouthfeel with decent carbonation which I still like. Finishes sticky with only slight bitter astringency. Eve though I now prefer "authentic" German weisens, I will always have good memories of this beer!

Pours clear golden yellow with only a few bubbles making a hard to see ring around the glass. Aroma is mostly just light wheat. Flavour is a bit sweet with some wheat. Nothing complex going on here.
