The clean finish stands out when you have this one. Plain aroma, malt and yeast, nothing special. Pours quite clear, just a hint of red to it, a bit of head, not much lacing. Nice even sweet flavour, I can taste a bit of raspberry or wildflower in there somewhere, maybe from the wild mountain honey. I almost can’t belive they don’t throw in a reference to the Steve Miller Band with that one. Just a twinge of bubbles and then its gone, a bit of sweet taste is all that’s left. Pretty good, my friend bout it and told me it was lower priced.

Sample Tasting. Nice pure gold colour. Nose: Quiet. Taste: Wheat dominant, no honey apparent. Finish is medium with caramel tones.

Reviwed on tap. Bottle sucked! This stuff looked like dark apple juice with its medium gold apperance and had a small white cap. Wheat and honey is what you get on smell and it’s quite sweet. I was suprised how much I liked the aroma considering the sweetness. Nice wheat taste, some malts that were on the slighty roasted side and interesting spicy honey (probally the hops). Light to medium bodied, fairly dry with a decent bitter aftertaste. Tasty beer!

Dark blonde straw body with a moderate head. Slight carbonation. aroma of sweet honey, fruit, and wheat. Flavour is of floral hops and sweet honey. Moderate bodied wheat ale that satisfies your thirst, but not much else.

Sample at Edmonton Festival of beer, from 341ml brown bottle. Pale gold, faint white bubbles on the surface. Nose is sweet, floral with detectable honey. Flavour is grainy with honey sweetness. Finish is dry and grainy. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
On tap at Grizzly Paw. Poured a clear, paler golden with only a ring of white head. Nose was of honey and pale malty sweetness along with some wheat notes... almost skunky. Sweet honey and tart lemony-wheat in the flavor... rather mediocre. Creamy and fairly good feeling on the palate... with some odd tart notes. Not so good overall.

I had this while on the Silver Tip golf course in Canmore, which would make any beer taste that much better. Sweet and grainy with a sharp tanginess to the finish that really makes this a nice beer to drink on a hot day. One step above Grasshoppper by Big rock.

Foamy white head, aroma of bananas, sweet and slightly tangy, nice colour, somewhat smooth.

Bottle from Premier in Halifax. Pale yellow, massive white head initially made me fear infection but it shows no sign of such. Decent lacing on the glass.Sweet, floral grainy aroma. Flavour has a dry bitterness underneath a generic sweet middle. Inoffensive but dull. Average palate. Unpleasant astringence and bitterness grows as it warms.
