Craft Beer’s Gold Standard
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you haven’t, we’ve bottled it for you. It’s 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 Grasshopper’s wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Aroma of straw and corn. Typical golden yellow color. Not a very exciting one but it’s 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 (98) - 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.

Normaldad (1) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013 does not count
A little boring , tiny taste of lemon, a bit flat aroma... But very easy to drink, would be great summertime lakeside. Doesnt taste like a 5% beer, could be trouble :)

Crisp and clear. A refreshing light lager without a lot of flavour. Good for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A generally flavourless, flat, headless ordinary beer yet I’ve tasted much worse.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Booooorring. Nothing much happening in this beer. Wouldn’t recommend to craft lover fans, it is more like just a basic lager beer with the slightest of hint of wheat.

Mild beer flavour. Comes in very fresh where I live. Pours light golden. Tastes like a light lager. Good on a hot day.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3990) - 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.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
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.
