gregorymconway (138) - 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.

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

RhetoricalAns (368) - 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 (641) - 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: Donít bother, nothing special here. Drinks like a mainstream lager.

RichardW (1545) - 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 (511) - 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.

BrewGoblin (463) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
I was really looking forward to this beer. It marked a shift in our local LCís from big Canadian piss lagers to craft breweries being carried. Sadly this beer didnít help the cause. Itís 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.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
I usually donít get offended my wheat beer, but this one did exactly that. Maybe it was a bad batch, but it was all together unpleasant. Tasted of wheat gone bad and stale cereal, add a little skunk as well. After taste wasnít much better as it was hard to finish the can, before it got too warm.

BeerGolem (714) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample on tap at Craft beer Market (Vancouver). Pours clear wheaty blond. Aroma: malt, distant hops and citrus. Taste is only malty. Refeshing I guess, but nothing to write home about here...

jksipa (416) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is very faint tofee and grain. Slightly sweet and a bit crisp. Thin mouth with average carbonation. Inoffensive and uninspiring.
