COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
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.

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.....

Ferris (6548) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Draft - Light grain sweetness and a touch of corn. Clear light gold with. Decent white head. Sweet creamed sheet and a long sweet finish. A bit too sweet.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s 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. Doesn’t 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.

I’ve had this a few times before but for this one it was a 355 ml can poured at home. Smell is....off. I can’t 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, i’ve had it a few times and have never really enjoyed it.

gregorymconway (206) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
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, not very memorable.

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Strong sweet wheat aroma and a decent head with a golden body flavour isstrong hoppy lagerness with a hint. Of wheat. just okay.

RhetoricalAns (462) - Toronto, Ontario, 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 (680) - 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: Don’t bother, nothing special here. Drinks like a mainstream lager.

RichardW (1633) - 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 (600) - 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.
