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.

Canned (thanks Rosenbergh!). Yellow colour, small head. Aroma is fruits, wheat, grass and some slight cardboardy notes along with some mild caramel notes. Flavour is quite similar with some slight citrusy notes as well.

Travlr (14178) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Piss yellow with no head but slight lacing. Aroma of pink grapefruit, bubble gum and banana. Citrus taste, sour finish, slightly reminiscent of a wheat beer. Light body for the style. Interesting, but not great.

Oakes (13021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2000
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 Golden colour. Slightly sweaty, vaguely fruity aroma. Bland, watery, with light bready malts and only the vaguest wheatiness. Inoffensive.

faroeviking (10286) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 16, 2009
Botella. Grainy wheaty aroma. Fair mouthfeel. Flavour of something wheaty , bit sweet with grains and gras, bit grassy. Disappointing.

Sammy (9139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2004
Thanks Osborne Freehouse. Grainy and malty sweet. Crisp like a wheat but not much wheat. Thin-medium mouthfeel.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Very pale yellow and crystal clear with a thin white head. Slight citrus aroma and some very mild wheat aroma. Very little flavour, some weak malted wheat and a number of different hops. Crisp finish. Not an outstanding beer, but I could drink about a thousand of 'em.
