presario (4709) - 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.

Lagerboy (1333) - 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)

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Berries tropical fruits and wheat malt on the nose. Pours hazy orange yellow thin head. Flavora of berries tropical fruit notes a little tart fruit which apparently was pomegranate. Interesting slightly unique for style. Wheat. Dry quenching good use of fruit.

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.

reebtogi (4388) - 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.

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Cloudy orange with virtually no head. Aroma is nice and fruity - passionfruit, peach, apricot, hint of fresh grass and mint. Crisp mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, and a good body contributed by the wheat which gives it some depth, citrus tang in the finish. Taste is peach, apricot, passionfruit, coriander, mandarin. Great summer bier, tasty and refreshing while still having some character.

DuffMan (7030) - 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!

On tap at Sunset Grill. Told was a new keg of a new "fixed batch". I've had it last year, but failed to review. Today's pour is cloudy yellow orange. Minimal head, very sporadic lacing. Aroma is wheaty, yeasty, bready, oranges and raspberry with a bit of funk. Taste is quite a bit of bright fruit. Oranges, more raspberry, lemon zest, and wheaty resin. After now reading the description, I can smell mango. I suck at this. All in all, this seems to be a VERY hit/miss brew. My review is off an "ain't so bad" batch. If it tasted like this all of the times, I'd probly get it more often on a hot summer day.

On tap at the Academic. Pours a murky orange/pink with very little head. Fruity peach aroma. Flavors of apricot, peach, and orange with dry malt and cereal tones. Refreshing.
