Nice amber coulour with a white foamy head. not a complex flavour, some hops, roast malts and wheat. Decent beer though.

as i write this, one week ago exactly, i was sitting in the Merchant Ale House in St Catherines, Canada drinking this beer on draft .. . light mud and fresh wheat .. some mud aftertaste .. . muddled and not that enjoyable .. . . When you tell on someone, you’re not only telling on them. You’re telling on yourself

I really enjoyed this one, it had a dark colour and it is bitter at the front and smooth taste all the way through, it had a sweet finish and good beer, I would have again

On tap at the brewpub. Dark yellow, medium white head. Decent wheat and malt aroma. Taste is quite bland but there is is wheat and malt notes here as well. Some hops in finish. Nothing wrong here, I just found it boring.

GregClow (3115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Draught at the Merchant Ale House. Hazy golden-orange colour - not very "dark", really. Aroma is odd - a bit candyish, some funk (maybe that’s the "vomit" that jerc found?), some chemical/plastic notes - like I said, odd. Flavour is quite dead to start, developed into some stale fruit (peach, orange) and hop notes, and got unpleasantly bitter in the finish. I really didn’t care much for this.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Hazy golden amber, with a very small white head and half decent lacing. Citrusy aroma, bit of stale hop/lemon/vomit (but not actually)/and grass notes. Light lemon citrus hoppy bitterness. Light tart wheat bite, but other than that it is not very wheaty. Average to light palate. Tasted more like an american style wheat than a dunkelweizen. Meh.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Draught. At Merchant Ale House, shared with jerc and GregClow. Poured cloudy deep amber with a thin white head. Mild aroma of thin caramel malt, light tea hops, hint of sour fruit. Taste was surprisingly citrus hoppy, if somewhat stale, with toasty grain, tea, and as it warmed something sour that wanted to resolve into chocolate, or chlorine or something unpleasant. Mouthfeel bitter, sourish, average body. We felt this one had been on too long, probably would have been quite decent if fresh, as it was, somewhat disappointing.

Radek Kliber (7086) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 17, 2005
Cloudy, orange hue typical to darker wheats. Just average crown. Spicy nose with biscuit character, clove. Neat mouth feel, good texture, well rounded malts; noticeable hopinnes makes decent session ale.

Sammy (10878) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
a different take on a wheat, to give it more depth. Drinkable with the slice of lemon not on its one. Little lace. Darker colour, watery, aggressively carbonated.

(Draught) Thin, almond head with a copper doy. Citrus and slight hop nose. Caramel, citrus and hop tongue with a nice bitter finish.
