Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
On tap at The Ginger Man. Wheat aroma. Pale yellow cidery colour with some lace. Nicely drinkable, a bit astringent but also well malted finish. Refreshing. Mineral water carbonation, average or above mouthfeel.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Tap at Blind Tiger. Very pale straw colour with a surprisingly bright appearance. The aroma is nice and bright with fresh lemony citurs, wheat and a crisp spiciness. Yeast shows light spiciness, with notes of coriander and clove. The coriander imparts a bright lemon citrus and they have managed to get rid of the vegetal character that was here last year. Spicy/herbal hops on the back give this a crisp refreshing bitterness. Much improved and a very tasty summer brew.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy glowing golden yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of clove, bananas, and coriander. Medium thick body. Spicy with a bit of medicinal mint quality and some light bubblegum.
