Bouteille de 660ml. Merci Patrick. Elle a une belle couleur blé, or. Le nez est de citron, épices et une belle dose de blé. La bouche est de houblon, mordante, agréable. Une sorte de blonde ale bien houblonnée avec du blé. Surprenante.

Bottle - 650ml. Hazy blond body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with melon and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grapefruit and some coriander notes. Ends with a robust bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 01SE11.
App.: Deep golden with a nice rocky white head.
Aroma: Bright citrus/resin/pine hops, some sweetness, some wheat beer character – slight grassiness, wet hay, biscuit, faint esters way in the background, interesting.
Palate: Medium-ish body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Pine, resin, slightly floral hops, a touch of wheat and biscuit, definitely leans towards hops; dry with good (slightly unbalanced) bitterness with a fairly clean finish, a touch of pine, resin and minerals.
An interesting experiment. Cooler than the 80’s for sure.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright straw yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is slightly subdued but mostly wheat and citrus hop. Taste is a wallop of citrus hop with a nice wheat base. Not your typical wheat beer but this one is pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This light wheat ale pours a slight hazy golden colour with a white foam head that leaves big chunky soapy lace. Tiny miniature pulp sediments floats around. The nose is fresh with piney hop aromas. The hop is not as present in the taste, as the flavours are mild (being a 4.5% ABV brew). Still, this makes this beer easy-drinking and quite refreshing. The flavours are mostly of grapefruits with the light wheat in the background. Seems to start off watery, but gets much stronger as sips are taken, with stronger bitterness and lingering hops. Kind of an APA mixed with a weizen. A pretty interesting ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from LCBO. Hazy pale orange with a white head, decent amount of lacing down the glass. Wheat, sugar, mild yeast, coriander, floral and citrus, some bitterness/hops. Initially somewhat sweet but then becomes bitter, low carbonation, a very nice dry and bitter finish. Although not so great at the beginning it does become quite tasty as it develops, could do with a little more balance. Worth at least trying.
