(4oz glass) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2013. Cloudy orange body with no head. Nose of tart berries and cleaning agents. Flavour is nicely sour. Okay but could use Brett or more profile yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1072) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange with a very small white head and no lace. Aroma of grapefruit, passionfruit, tropical fruits, mango and kiwi. Basically all the fruits that aren’t in here but wonderful Aroma, bath and body would be proud. Taste is wheat, kiwi, mango, tropical fruits. Nice beer but a bit thin, would be pretty easy drinking bit doesn’t hold much weight after the aroma.

Bahumat (76) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Fruity, complex aroma, providing notes of all the fruits that the actual beer fails to deliver. Appearance is a very bright, intense yellow, thin lacing, no head. Taste is very straightforward hefeweizen/ale. Pleasant, sweet start with a mild citrus at the front of the tongue, quickly transitioning to a lingering minerality on the mid and backrange. Palate is smooth on the front, but fizzy and stinging on the tongue and palate afterwards. Finish is light citrus and very mildly bitter. Overall: There’s nothing notably bad about the beer, but there’s nothing that delivers on the promise of the label either. Lacks presence and won’t be remembered a day later.

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.

From 1l bottle. A fantastic beer for a hot summer day. Clean finish, minimal aftertaste. Distinct fruit flavors on mango and passion fruit.

Pours gold, white head. Nose is pomegranate and passionfruit, like a Tropicana. Flavour is same fruit, some malt, quite dry along with the tart. Alright.

On tap at National 17th Street. Count on Howe Sound to make a decent fruit beer. A tart experience, impeding drinkability into a sipper. Interesting.

Jaune brumeux avec une mousse moyenne blanche. L’arôme du levure, blé et fruits. Le goût est d’abord du blé, puis du levure avec une finition des fruits. Légèrement sucré avec une finale sec.
