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.

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.

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.

Reimer96 (1639) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
Beer pours a golden clear color with a white head. Very little aroma with a small faint wheat taste. A good summer beer that’s good for entry level craft beer enthusiasts.

This beer is very weak. Almost no aroma...a bit of sweet grains. Very bland flavors...a bit of slightly sweet grains...otherwise, nothing. One and done.
