Orange pour from draft at Rose & crown in Banff. White head. Wheat and grassy flavor. Not bad for the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Translucent gold with a quickly receding small white head. Mild aroma containing notes of yeast, malt, honey, and lemon. Light bodied, particularly for a wheat. Tastes akin to a macro wheat. Yeast, malt, honey, and a hop/citrus finish are present, but in a rather passive manner. Pleasant as a chug it back summer ale, but immensely lacking in complexity.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle. Pours a clear light to medium gold, with a small white head, which fades quickly and doesn’t leave any lacing. The aroma offers some pleasant floral hops and a lick of wheat sweetness. The hops flavour up front is a little muted, although the floral notes are still present. The mid-palate has a little more body than I would expect from a wheat ale, but sadly isn’t backed up by much flavour, just a fairly simple sweetness. Reasonable enough, and very sessionable, but not the most exciting beer around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml can from a 12-pack sampler from Sobeys Liquor, served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a slightly orangey straw yellow with lots of very fine carbonation and a creamy white cap that crackles and vanishes with time to leave rings and islands of lace. Aroma is similar to many lagers, with unsweetened malty cereals, and hints of buttered corn that I truly dislike in the aroma and flavor of beer. (Actually, I don’t know if my nose and tongue read this correctly as "corn"; it just might be some version of biscuity or cracker-like malt.) Flavor is practically identical to most light lagers, right down to a stronger presence of the confusing and distasteful corn/biscuit flavor, with what seems to be a hint of herbal hops. Thin, and with a dry finish. I wouldn’t go out of my way for this. Although labeled as a Kristallweizen, it’s indistinguishable from most adjunct lagers. So-so.

Pours a clear bubbly gold with a small creamy white head. Aroma of grain, grass and corn. Tastes of grain, some sweet malt and a very light bitter finish. Watery and light body.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 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,
