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.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Strong sweet wheat aroma and a decent head with a golden body flavour isstrong hoppy lagerness with a hint. Of wheat. just okay.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I was really looking forward to this beer. It marked a shift in our local LC’s from big Canadian piss lagers to craft breweries being carried. Sadly this beer didn’t help the cause. It’s a pale corn-yellow with no head that looks and tastes hardly better than a skunky, metallic old (insert macro lager here). I wish they would have sent their better brews over, now none are carried.
