A golden weiss with a thick onctuous lacing off white head. In aroma, a superb fragrant citrusy and pinhey c-hops, with smooth fruity esters. In mouth, a pinhey resinous weizen, grassy and floral, delicious, light clover honey, wow! Bottle from LCBO, tasted Sept. 6 2011

Tap at Cíest What. Pale golden pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. Loads of bright amarillo/citra hop aroma over a lean malt base. Kind of reminds me of gumballhead. Really hoppy flavour as well - clean and crisp with just a touch of spicy wheat flavour towards the finish. Fresh and citrusy. Juicy and a little bit of bubble gum as well. Assertively hopped with a nice juicy finish. Mmm

My Bottom Line :
Tropical fruit galore ride this svelte Pale Aleís wheat subtleties, as bitter hop resins claim the palate for the long run.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-The citrusy hop nose is as compelling as the crisp mouthfeel.
-This is obviously super drinkable for hopheads.
-Mouthfeel is polished; the dryness increases drinkability too.
-This is one of the ugliest labels Iíve seen in a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 2011-12-09. Lightly hazy bright yellow body with a mdoest white head. 3+ Hoppy aroma, floral, grassy character. 7+ Good amount of hops and bitterness in the flavour, grassy hops, straw notes, pale malt underpinnings and a bit of wheat character. Average plus bodied palate. Enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/15 Tap at Great Lakes Project Xmas
2010-04-01. Lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Mild aroma, fruity and lightly yeast with some grassy hops. 6+ Flavour is similarly fruity, lightly floral with a modest grassy bitterness throughout. Average palate. At the time I was thinking it was not really to style for a hefe, but as a hoppy wheat ale that seems to fit it more. Enjoyable, but a touch mild overall for my liking. 6/3/6/3/13 Cask at the brewery.

Appearance : mid light cloudiness , amber shade with mid plus white top , little lace. 3+
Nose: hop , citric aroma flirting with malt. Clean and refreshing.7-
Flavor/Palate : mid bodied , soft with hint of grassy character. Think of wheat ale with American IPA hops. Long late feel of hop finishing away with light carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, at CíEst What Spring Festival, May 29, 2010. Very bubbly and hazy light gold with a solid lasting straw-coloured head. The aroma is very, very grassy-bitter - my notes go on about it smelling awesome but nothing like a weissbier - too hoppy, hardly fruity at all, some alcohol coming through the spicy grassiness (even asked the bartender if it were the right beer) - later someone pointed out that itís inspired by TF Gumballhead - ah ha! Anyway, tastes really grassy/spicy, hardly any alcohol on the tongue, just a light bit of fruit - it seemed like a saison amped up with a ton of czech pils hops, really fresh - dug it. Solid body on it too, really lively, a bit acidic (from the hops, I would assume), with a long dry bitter finish - not overly aggressive, but it sticks around a long time. Well done. (I hear they are bottling this - I will be buying some)

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 In short: American wheat beer meets Czech bohemian pilsner. Superb session beer
How: Bottle 650ml. Exact age unknown but consumed the very same day I received it from HogtownHarry. Thanks a lot Harry.
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a dense large white head with very good retention. This beer looks awesome
In long: Nose is bright and crisp with grassy spicy notes. Taste is crisp dry wheat reminiscent of Shredded Wheatô cereals, a lot of Saaz-like dry spicy yellowed grass, some minerals, some minty bubblegum, some lemon peels. Body feels really full for a below 5% brew. Super crisp, a bit citric, light bitterness, very dry, highly refreshing, This is probably the best Ontario bottle of beer Iíve ever had. Iím concerned about what other people might think if I wonder what will happen if I tell people that I really love an Ontario beer or tell the jury where I have buried the body.

Cask at Rhino. Pours a hazy copper with an average size fizzy white head. Aroma is very hoppy, lots of fresh resiny hops -- quite lovely. Flavour is also resiny hops, fresh tasting. Really good, I was happy to have many pints of it.

[2821-20100401] Cask. Light green hops aroma has a light evergreen spruce resin tinge. Hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Little bitter pineapple hops flavour is genius. Medium body. Refreshing, great combination of things going on here.
