fiulijn (13532) - 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.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
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.

DuffMan (6172) - 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!

riversideAK (5563) - 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.
