maley1 (770) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour with small off white head. Aroma of wheat, strong passionfruit and mango dominating. Taste of wheat, slightly sweet but no noticeable fruit flavours coming through. Very thin mouthfeel and light bodied. Expecting much more after the awesome aroma.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
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.

reebtogi (4141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
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.

DuffMan (6639) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
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!

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2012
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.

presario (4606) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
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.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
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.

stantheman (634) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2012
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.

Lagerboy (1209) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
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)
