robinvboyer (3391) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Clear golden pour, big white head. Aroma is grassy and quite piney. Green, resinous hops. Perfect mouthfeel and a great carb. Incredibly Bitter, a biting citrus pith bitter. More fresh cut grass and some light wheat in the finish with with slight citrus. A nice beer but the intense bitterness will put off newbies.

YigSvartka (184) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Transparent, blanched, golden colour with a mid sized white head. Citrus and hops fragrance, with particular emphasis on citrus. Thin bodied. Rather one dimensional flavour as well. Citrus and hops with a finish that’s actually slightly too tart bordering on the same flavour as codeine. Extremely unimpressed given the brewery.

ljthiessen (621) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Light straw yellow pour with a decent white head, good retention. Aroma is lightly fruity and hoppy, some citrus zest. Lots of flavour, fairly bitter, but not much body. Teeters between a citrus zest and an herbal/medicinal bitterness, not awful but not the most pleasant.

northropfrye (2460) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Light yellow body, off white head and lacing. Pine aroma, a touch of aged cheddar. Taste has a hit of medicinal bitterness, then a nutty dull watery middle part followed by the bitterness again. To put it in film terms, it has a long dull second act. Okay at best.

cards04 (2114) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
A session wheat ale. neat. Nice looking beer that leaves lots of lacing. Aromas of sharp hops. Aromas and flavours are grassy and vegetal. Weeds is what I get. Flavourful and refreshing. Nice.

SuperTiti33 (742) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
En fût à la brasserie. Blonde. Légère. Très citronné. Forte amertume. Sèche. Légèrement épice. Over rafraichissante. Très bien.

rejtable (1614) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014

Murky yellow, unfiltered with minimal carbonation. Citrus and grapefruit aromas dominate. Tastes are identical. Almost radler-like. Very refreshing and went great with breakfast today.

asheft (2670) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
[On tap at Prime Burger] Resinous hops aroma with some pine and grapefruit pith, but very faint, if any, malt character. Almost clear light copper under a lasting, white blanket. Flavour similar to aroma: hops and grapefruit pith bitterness overpowering gentle hops flavours (pine and grapefruit) and light caramel malt. Light body, medium to high carbonation, crisp. A crisp beer, but quite bitter and needing more body. A common interpretation of "session" in this substyle.

Acebulf (6) - - SEP 6, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Very hoppy wheat beer, but I’ve had better in this style. Hop bitterness is pronounced but not as much as an IPA. Not much else in this beer. Had it in a growler from NB Liquor’s new pilot project.
