This blonde ale is a refreshing, thirst quenching beer that is perfect for a hot Okanagan day. Using different hops each year will give this ale a distinct flavor and unique aroma. The addition of white wheat malt and German ale yeast create a body that is soft and delicate with a crisp, dry finish.

On tap at Cannery, pours a hazy dull blonde with a small white head. Aroma is very restrained, with dry biscuity and cereal notes. Flavour is more punchy, with lots of toasted grains. Dry and clean. Not much to this, but it’s pleasant enough.

ljthiessen (1140) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Clear light golden ooh with a white head. Aroma is floral, sweet and a little grassy. Flavour is mellow but nicely balanced, a decent bitterness up front with those same floral and grassy notes, a hint of citrus.

piscator34 (2364) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Pale gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of wet grain, crabapple, and wildflower honey. Flavors are a blend of wheat and 2-row malts, a bit of lemon peel, and orchard fruit. Heavier on the palate than expected with a mineral finish. Not as refreshing as expected, and a bit on the bland side.

northropfrye (3300) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Light golden body, lasting foamy off-white head, and lacing. Grainy malt aroma, sweetness. Taste is sweet, vanilla, bubblegum, grains. Nothing too interesting but a pleasant blond ale.

Thanks to Reimer for this. I probably drank this on the opposite type of day it’s intended. Pours clear gold with a small white top. Aroma is floral, honey and cereal malts. Taste is much the same, making me wish I was drinking this on a patio on a +20 degree day rather than on a blistering snowy day at -8.

dresden (1482) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Darker golden. Aroma is lightly lemon, slight skunk, some grain. Taste is light cereal, slight citrus. , Not too bad something I wouldn’t seek but it’s decent.

Visual: Pours golden yellow with a smallish creamy head, sticky lacing, a thin layer of retention, several slow streams. Nose: faint apple juice, hints of malts (lvl-2)-pungency Attack: crisp barley malts Mid-palate: tingly-fizzy-crisp. (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) barley malt, red apple, grainy Finish: very soft bitter hops, hopped bitter-sweet barley finish. Summary: Drinks more like a crisp lager than a wheat ale. A very nice crisp mouthfeel perfect for hot summer days and nights. Recommended as a meal beer.

Bottle, shared with Robbie while painting the fence. Light golden, clear, with a soapy white head. Clean grains with a kiss of citrus. Simple but good.
