3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hoppy conifer nose, pine, cedar and pepper notes. Very surprising for a witbeer. Nice resinous hops.
Appearance: Straw with tiny particles suspended. Average thickness, density and lasting for head. No lacing.
Taste: Attack is dominated by hops with a lot of fir, pine and other conifer notes. Very particular that bitterness is happening at the beginning of tasting process and not at finish. Very few malt sugars. Texture is extremely thin and watery. Do not expect a typical wheat beer. It is closer to a light IPA or pale ale with a lot of conifer notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 Good, but rough around the edges. Pours a hazy deep gold with short lived fizzy head. The aroma is grapefruit out the wah-zoo, thats about it, but thatís not necessarily a complaint. The flavour starts out with a resiny hop drop kick of grapefruit, there is some pale malts, biscuit, and such, but itís really stands in the back ground while the grapefruit goes to town. Itís a good concept, and itís not a bad beer, but itís a little rough, the hops are too prevalent and a little harsh. Hop Sun was considerably better balanced version of this hoppy weiss. Other then that, thumbs up!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO bought on a whim just for the name. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a generous white head that leaves some lace. Nose is big grapefruit and pine. Nice balance of typical wheat grassiness and sweetness at the start that then picks up an unexpected level of bitter citrus. Nice light mouth with lively carbonation. This is NOT your average wheat beer with the hops punch giving that little bit extra. Good summer time patio beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. First, let me say, I bought this bottle without reading the back. Then, I opened this bottle without reading the back. Then I took a sniff, and thought "What the..." Pours a hazy pale beige/orange with a thin white head. Aroma is BIG on fruit (passion fruit / dried strawberry) with a faint resinous note, and wheat. Lighter bodied, with huge flavours of fruity hops (again passion fruit, and dried strawberry) followed by a resinous bitterness that lasts until the finish with some bitter wheat, and citrus notes.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 mL bottle. Pours a cloudy straw color with a spongy white head and lacing galore. Great piney, citrusy hop nose. Layers of aroma hop, hints of citronella, wax and soap. Fruity and bone dry with medium carbonation and a well rounded and smooth wheat accented mouth feel. Clean and American in style. The ultimate summer beer, dangerously sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour straw golden yellow big white head. Aroma huge citrus, mango, tropical, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste quite bitter, light wheat malt, citrus, tropical hops, pineapple. MF medium slightly fuller body with light fizzy carb. Solid brew very tasty and great hop character. Not necessarily a wheat just a very tasty beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the brewery - poured a cloudy greenish gold with a firm, small white head. Lovely aromas of mango, banana, peach, and a whack of citrus. Some yeast as well. Flavour much the same, but with a pronounced bitterness at the back end. Very flavourful for a 4.5% beer. Kudos to Great Lakes (who just keep getting better and better) or this beer - I hope they brew it again, and on a more consistent basis. My favourite in the GLB stable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ The Only, Toronto, ON: Light copper colour, great marshmallow white head. Aroma is metallic, sour orange and rye bread. Tastes nicely bitter with sharp black pepper and tangerine. Sadly, thereís a bit of a metallic character to it thatís a bit off-putting, but this is still one of the better efforts by this brewery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013/06/23 - Pours a hazy orange, straw color with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma is orange, lemon, wheat and piney hops. Taste is watery, slight wheat and a metallic, hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin with medium carbonation. Seems diluted.
