3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Cíest What spring festival 28/05/10. Pours a light amber with decent white head. Aroma boasts fairly piney hops. A decent malting is evident. Hoppy taste with some good malt to back it up. Itís a little thin but perhaps thatís unfair considering I had it after the imperial heffe by the same brewer. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with a tall white head. The head fades slowly to... and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are huge notes of grapefruit and pine, along with a touch of pale malts. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout, with a huge amount of grapefruit. Notes of wheat and pale malts are also present, but take a back seat to the grapefruit. The finish is long, bitter and citric. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a dry texture and intense carbonation. Overall, an interesting brew--light and dry with wheat on one hand, and intensely citric on the other. The combination of wheat and IPA works surprisingly well. 2011-10-06

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a large rocky white head leaving good amounts of lace. Aroma is pine, wheat, and tropical fruit. Flavour is pine, resin, medium bitterness, fruity and bready wheat. Iím loving this beer, the hops are a great touch to what would normally be a bit boring in my opinion.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle from the Lickbow. Pours a semi-hazed yellow with a large white fluffy head that laces the glass well. Aroma is straight up hops, not much else, just nice almost fruity hops, bouqet is a good word for it. Flavour is a bit abrasive with the hop bitterness, on top of not much of a malt body and nothing even remotely like a wheat beer of any kind. Why even bother calling it a wheat ale, other than the gimmicky name? Drinks a lot like Crazy Canuck, Iíll just leave it at that....Anyways itís still a decent beer, but kind of over-priced and I just feel like if you wanted to make an interesting and hoppy wheat beer, why not make an actual hoppy wheat beer with hops and weiss characters instead of what this is, essentially a pale ale. Given that itís so similar to Crazy Canuck, it just seems stupid to offer something at such a higher price, especially from one of the best OCB members I would expect better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I tried this beer on September 23, 2011 after obtaining a bottle from a friend. The beer pours a hazy orange gold with a thin tan head that lasts. Aroma is citrusy hops with a hint of wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is citrusy hops, peppery spice, and some sweet malt tones. I enjoyed it a great deal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours tang crystal orange with a sturdy cottage cheese cap. Was is das? Well it ainít your opaís Weiss beer -- theyíre pretty upfront about this from the get go -- with those sturdy hops & that throaty aftertaste. This is right up my alley & therefore will start getting rotation in my fridge. My old man always says if I wanted a Weiss why would i drink a Canadian one? This pour sidesteps that question.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with golden aspirations and a short white head. Well thatís very citrusy on the nose with some light spice and banana. A letdown on the palate, all things considered. Kind of watery, nice spice level and some good banana elements but overall itís kind of hallow.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at the Dundas LCBO. Pours a cloudy orange with huge fluffy white head and lacing. Smells rather hoppy. Tastes a little bitter. Except for the floaties, its rather nice and refreshing. I had this at the Toronto Beer festival and it was better.
