Clear rusty colored pour with a very white head. Not much scent. A bit of grassy hops. Rather pleasant and easy to drink. Wet and refreshing. There’s quite a bit going on here but I’m having a hard time picking out specifics. A little sweet. Very clean finish. A bit over carbonated. Easy to drink. I can see picking up a 6 of these for a Nove afternoon BBQ. I’m still rally impressed by Flying Monkey.

355ml brown bottle. 5% abv on the label. Clear golden. Holds a large rocky and sticky white head. Nose has lemon and wheat/cereals. Taste has wheat malt, toasty notes, caramel, lemon hops. Wheaty finish with light caramel and toasted notes. Touch of lemony bitterness coming in late. Well carbonated and light bodied. A bit better than I expected!

presario (4598) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Good foam on crisp bright amber. Almost no scent. Kind of a dirty flavour. Wheat should be clean and Amber should have some tasty malt and hopefully nice hopping. Some hops but off edge and dirty malt.

Awesome Wheat! A little pricey but worth it about once a month! Up front, it’s all comforting sweetness on the tongue, clover honey, biscuits, and Graham crackers. Then the back end boasts a zesty, earthy character with a palate cleansing finish of lemon and grassy hops. A MUST TRY!

Pours light amber with a frothy head. Aroma is malty and sweet, a beer/wine mix. Taste is malty, sweet champagne. Good stuff. Slight bitterness to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quevillon (2453) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
355 ml bottle bought at LCBO in Hawkesbury on May 29, 2014. Golden blonde little head. Malted wheat aroma a little dry, creamy notes. Taste somewhat similar, mineral notes, dry bitterness. More like mono vision!

guitartown (24) - SPAIN - MAY 13, 2014
Botella 33cl. Color dorado pálido con espuma escasa. Suave en todo: aroma, sabor y final. Un poco de trigo como indica la etiqueta. Refrescante. Punto.

Parnsi (11) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
Rating #3. Pour to a light golden with little head. Mild carbonation. Flavor is muted like a pale lager and don't get the sense of a wheat beer at all. Overall wasn't great but still a decent refreshing beer in sun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gildnerk (128) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 29, 2014
Tap @ the Arrow & Loon. Hazy yellow-orange with some white head. Aromas of grains, citrus fruit and bread, some grass. The body is subtly bittersweet with some caramel and malt sweet notes. Bit thin in the mouth, but quite nice overall.
