COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Especially hand-crafted to commemorate Waterlooís 150th celebration, Brick is pleased to launch Waterloo Wheat, a refreshing, light-bodied "Belgian style WitĒ (white) beer that gets its name due to itís cloudy, or white appearance. Waterloo Wheat is brewed with unique ingredients such as orange peel and coriander resulting in a refreshing and slightly citrus flavor that is extremely smooth and makes for a great beer to enjoy during the "dog daysĒ of summer.

Nice full pint can. Yellow hazy pour. Lots of frothy white head. Citrus scent with a touch of hops. Love me some What in the summer. Easy drinking, less citrusy then other Wheats/Wits out there, at least the ones from the Macrobrews. Refreshing but not very deep or complex. I like this over the Keithís version, itís comparable to the Rickardís but I would will prefer a nice large glass of Hoegaarden.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle: Pours hazy and yellow and almost all head. The head just kept coming, a bit of a disaster. Aroma is sour, citrusy, little bit of those typical wit spices. Flavour is a bit of a lemon bomb, tons of it. Highly carbonated, some hints of spice and yeast but this is essentially a lemon fruit beer. Pass.

Bomber bottle tasting- Pours hazy cloudy yellow with white-ish hues. Strong spicy aroma. Lots of lemon zest and corriander with sufficient clove. Good yeast and hop component as well. FLoral flvaours are combined with yeasty fruity (lemon, orange) flavours. Some spices round it off, and it all has a bitter finish. Finishes puckering, lemony, good. Why was this not more widely distributed?

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2009 2007-08-XX. Very hazy, pastel orange-yellow body with a small creamy white head. Interesting aroma is yeasty with a weird musty note, light notes of clove and something this is not actually, but reminds me of some type of sausage. Moderate yeasty flavour with light bitterness, light lemon rind flavours and very light notes of clove? Average to medium palate (3+). A pretty solid wheat. 7-7+/4/7+/3+/15 - 3.6 TFOB 2007. Draft.

2009-04-19. Bright yellow, small white head. Rough grainy aroma, esters. Flavour is sweetish with rough dry grainy character. Average palate. Pretty dull - a far cry from the previous version. 4/3/4/3/8 - 2.2 2009 Bottle c/o Tupalev

Pours an only slightly hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is macrolicious - sweet malt & not a lot of complexity - and also slightly off/cardboardish. Tastes very milky/wheaty, plenty of sweetness and spice - coriander and, believe it or not, chicken broth. Canít taste any orange peel, sorry. Body is creamy and light with great carbonation, and the finish is warm and spicy, with an odd unplaceable chicken-soupness. This is an interesting and not unpleasant wheat beer, and my first Brick brew.

Bottle via pootzboy - thanks! Pours a very nice looking hazy golden-orange with a large snow white head. Aroma is fairly mild, with light malt and wheat, and hints of citrus and spice. Body is quite creamy to start, but has a fairly crisp finish. Flavour strikes me as a sort of wit/weisse hybrid - it has the citrus and spice expected from a wit, but also a bit of the banana and yeast thatís typical of a weisse. Itís a bit subdued, but generally, a fine summer drink.

Pours a murky, pale golden colour with some decent, white, sticky head, lots of carbonation. The aroma is strong wheats, and grains, smells like tostitos, bang on, lol. Like JesseM, Iím not a huge wheat beer fan, but this one is my favorite so far. The best beer from brick brewing company so far. Good mouth feel, and strong bisuity flavours, with a citrus lemon finish. A pretty damn good beer all around. Impressive.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Pours a murky, pale colour with lots of carbonation. Decent head, and the aroma is mostly wheat, a little bit of the supposed orange peels, and some sweeter malts, as well as some pleasant fruity elements, like peach. Pootz pretty much said it all about this one, so I wonít be redundant. I personally am not all that big on wheat beers, but this one is actually pretty enjoyable. If you live in the KW/Grand River area you should try this one out, as itís only available for a month, and only in our area. Itís going to be a fresher tasting beer because it was brewed recently for a limited time of course, and I think thatís what really makes this an over-all great beer.

pootzboy (1586) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 650 ml bottle Decants as a murky pale gold ale...decent white puffy Wit cap...big bubbled lively carbonation which is a signature for the style Aroma is pleasant, light spicing and citrus under a malty note...some light mustiness. This is reminiscent of US Micro wits like Celis white...nice subtle fragrant nose to this. Front side is has a dry peppery mouth feel to it, good dose of dry biscuity wheat malt to chew on, citrus and spice tones develop...finishes crisp where the dry biscuit malts are balanced by a light tart citrus impression from citrus peel and hopping. Light, dry, spritzy character with signature spicy citrus Wit persona with a wonderful wheat maltiness to it. Top flight attempt at a witbier and a bargain at 3.25 a bomber

oqhj (4) - CANADA - JUN 29, 2007 does not count
Good choice for the summer. Nice fruity, mild flavour. The trailing bitterness is a bit too much in contrast. Overall, well done; try it out. The newspaper says it is avilable for July. LCBO says that it is only available in Waterloo Region and Guelph stores. The beer is brewed by Brick, but the label says "Waterloo brewing Co." and has similar label design as the new Waterloo Dark packaging.
