One of our original brands, this crisp flavourful wheat beer has been a spring board for many craft beer love affairs over the years. We add a special blend of Canadian barley and wheat malts for brisk clean flavour, spicy hops for balance, and bucket loads of local honey for its lovely floral aroma. John A’s Honey Wheat is an easy drinking light ale with great thirst quenching qualities.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Clear veiled golden color going for amber. Creamy and foamy beige 2 finger head lasting around 4 minutes. Average legs with low activity. Aromas and flavors of smoky corn, grains, citrus, herbal spices and faint honey. Well balanced flavors and intensity with some nice crispy sharpness and authentic sweetness (not just pure sugar). Slick full body with pleasant carbonation. Short clean finish but well intensified, ending with a pleasant slightly bitter smoky corn and honey sweetness feel on the tongue. Overall : Fresh, flavorful with a great wheat feel, good craft and very accessible. What adjunct lagers *should* taste like.

Pours a light straw colour with a light fluffy head, no lacing. Tastes of bready malt, citrus, grain and, of course honey. A little boring ,

Alpha10 (615) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
2015/09/22 - Pours a clear golden straw colour with a soapy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is dough, wheat, cereal, a hint of citrus and light caramel malt. Taste follows nose; cereal, bread, light lemon/lime and a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium with slightly sharp carbonation and a crisp finish. Pretty bland. Don't think that I will revisit this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yourilevesque (1359) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2015
’’Dégustée’’ sur la terrasse en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Magnifique bière orangée à la mousse à la fois dense, floconneuse et onctueuse. Vraiment superbe! Arômes de malts imposants, de miel et de houblons aromatiques. Sans être au premier plan, les houblons ajoutent une dimension agréable aux arômes qui sans eux, auraient été bien ordinaires. En bouche je suis encore aux prises avec ces céréales qui n’en finissent pas. Beaucoup de miel également. Les houblons que j’ai apprécié au nez sont malheureusement disparus car je ne sens plus aucune trace de leur passage. Triste.
