COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our fastest moving beer. A light wheat ale brewed with wild mountain honey. This produces a crisp well-balanced ale. This beer received the Gold Medal at Brewtopia’99.

Reimer96 (1064) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a clear orangish gold with a small white head. Aroma of sweet honey, pale malts, cereal and grain. Taste is honey, grainy and wheat. Overall a light refreshing beer with a balanced honey sweetness.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Appears pretty well see-through. Not much head. Some wheat flavour but pretty thin and boring. I would waste my money here. A pale imitation of what’s real.

Masterkush7 (378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Aromas are of faint pale malt with a hint of sweet floral honey. A mild blend of pilsner and malted wheat flavour, along with a bit more honey and a faint nutty note. Medium bodied with a slick wheaty mouthfeel

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Rating #866 - December 29, 2013 - Had this on tap at the brewery in Canmore last time I was in town - Hazy golden pour, but haziness fades as sediment seperates, leaving a bubbly lager appearance. Aroma has floral honey sweetness, grainines Taste is pretty much the same, a honey malty dominance with hints of wheat character built in (wheat, citrus, etc.)Finish is dry and crisp. This beer is light and refreshing, and would make an excellent patio beer.

Ferris (2019) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draft - Sweet grains, very mild. Clear gold minimal head. Honey notes come through, no real other flavours. Very thin and single dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

piscator34 (1888) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
On draft at the brewpub. Light gold in colour (slightly darker than their pilsner), with medium carbonation. Aromas are of faint pale malt with a hint of sweet floral honey. A mild blend of pilsner and malted wheat flavour, along with a bit more honey and a faint nutty note. Medium bodied with a slick wheaty mouthfeel. A bit bland.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
341mL bottle poured a golden color with small white head and little lacing. Aromas of wheat, yeast and a hint of honey. Taste is lightly sweet and has a surprising amount of bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body and mild carbonation. This is a pretty easy drinking beer to enjoy on a hot summer day out on the patio.

Sour like a lot of GP’s other beers, not much trace of honey, though. On tap on a taster at the Grizzly Paw
