2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Barney’s on Main St., Vancouver
Muddy deep blond color. Aroma almost missing. Watered down wheat ale, with very low wheat character, hints of bread, dust; very light sourness; light fruity touch; low bitterness.
Chaotic execution and very simple characteristics at the same time; for the easy drinker.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L swingtop bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by the raspberries with other light fruits present and some mild cereal grains. Taste is tart with the raspberries and a little sweetness from the malt and other fruits and a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This is a darn good fruit beer, not too sweet, not too sour, just the way that I like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Jeff and others. Hazy golden, nice white head that shows decent retention. Aroma is lovely genuine fruit, lots of passionfruit (which makes me think of when we lived in Australia, which makes me happy), raspberries too. The palate is more tame, in a good way, allowing the nice wheat and yeast to come through without any artificial or sugary fakeness to the fruit that is present in essence. Light but tasty, and very balanced. I was impressed, as I had expected this to drink like a glassful of Jolly Rancher candies. I am glad to be wrong!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 06/09/2012. Colour: Light in colour; mostly yellow with just a light glow of orange. Decent sized head that quickly dissapates. Nose: Mostly bitter citrus fruits - lime, grapefruit, lightly sweetened malt. Background noise by softer tropical fruit...mango, passionfruit. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Some biting citrus peel and a touch of sour cherry. Dry and stiff finish with lingering sour. Not overly refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L bottle. Cloudy dark amber with a small white head. Really nice citrus aroma. Flavour is a very decent tart fruit and solid malt wheat base. This is the kind of beer I like to start an afternoon on the patio with. For me it fits right into the rotation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1L brown bottle. Pours out very hazy, dark straw colour. Head is soapy looking, white. Mixed fruit nose, raspberry tang, peachy, tropical. Taste has a wheaty dry base, quick tropcial fruit notes, some citrus sharpness. Ends dryish, lots of wheat. Light body, decent lively carbonation. Good summery beer, fruits could have been more pronounced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Earl’s in Yaletown, in rhino branded sleeve. No much head here. Bar staff seem intent on getting the most possible liquid into the glass. Hard to fault them on that. Nose is fruity (no surprise). Color is pale and a bit cloudy. Taste is straight up fruit, heavy to peach and apricot. Quite drinkable, but a bit too much like a fruit cooler for my taste buds.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange yellow, thin head fades quickly. Fruity wheaty aroma. Tropical fruity wheat taste, not too sweet and not at all acidic. Softly carbed, light bodied, low hopped. Light and refreshing. Clean lightly bitter finish. A unique fruit beer, very nice! LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great fruit beer. Pours a bright and hazy golden with a finger of bubbly off white head. A wisp of light lacing rings the glass. The nose is wheaty and extremely fruity with mostly raspberry and mango fruit notes. The flavor has more passionfruit and pomegranate fruits. Sweet and overly fruity with crisp and refreshing wheat malt. Overall, a great beer.
