Oakes (15277) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
Draft @ YYZ. Hazy, yellow, thin head. Vinous nose with lots of ester and some wheaty phenols. Balanced, light blond maltiness, vague woody notes, esters and a touch of wheat. Not bad.

Boutip (5795) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
Draft: Poured a hazy light yellow color ale with a medium foamy had with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light dry wheat malt with some notes of Chardonnay. Taste is also a mix of dry wheat malt with light dry Chardonnay notes. Body is full with medium carbonation. Not bad thought it is lacking some complexity.

tmalaher (110) - Calgary, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
tasted at Calgary 2016 Beer Fest. For an Oki beer, there is not enough soap in this. Pleasant enough but not recommended

UXO (1400) - CANADA - APR 30, 2016
On tap at Mill Street Brewpub YYZ as "Don Valley Bench" (no "Estate"). Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of slightly creamy white head, moderate retention and lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, grainy pale malt, grassy. (4/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, very light tart. (4/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, short duration mildly bitter finish. (3/5) Meh. Really bland. Almost no wheat at all, except for a very little sour-ish edge. But for that, it could almost be a macro lager - except itís not that crisp. Finishes reasonably clean, but thereís just not much going on. (9/20)

reebtogi (5522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet malts and grass. Taste is a malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Claims to be oak aged, but not getting any oak. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Very uninspired brew. Not recommended.

robinvboyer (4064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Very chalky, earthy, malted wheat. Slightly buttery, some light vanilla, and some barrel, with alot of sweet, malted wheat. Wet paper and chalk.... Weird.

Kauge (1527) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at the Brewpub. Hazyish pale yellow. Small white head. Stinky gherkin aroma juice aroma. Sourish grany wheaty flavour. WTF is this? Gherkin juice and beer mix? Doughy notes. Crisp in the mouth with quite nice lightish body, dryish grainy wheaty finish. Faint stickiness. Itís bad. Wouldnít dare think itís gone off. Just bad.

ILduce (250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
Mill Street Brew Pub: golden/amber with thin white head. Weak aroma of grain and yeast. Flavors of bread crust and more grain. Very thin and uninviting. Strange aftertaste, strange name. not up to par here, at all.

lukin (562) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
bottle. Pours pale yellow, clear, no head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, breads. Taste is light, really nothing interesting happening. Disappointing.
