A remarkable wheat beer infused with a blend of Orange Pekeo and Earl Grey teas. It pours a light amber colour and will charm you with its sublime tea flavour and subtle lemon twist. A trully Canadian take on one of Europe’s newest beer styles.

Bottled. Fresh, citrusy aroma. Pours with a cloudy orange hue and small head. Highly carbonated. Refreshing hoppy flavour with lemon hints throughout and a slightly bitter finish. Very refreshing.

15 ounce can into imperial pint glass, canned on 11/12/2014. Pours hazy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good spiced wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Looks attractive but overall the flavours and aroma age pretty subdued. Taste is slight tea and lemon as the name suggests but quite flat and watery. Not that I’d want an intense lemon or read flavour in beer anyway.

Thanks northopfrye for this. Aromas of lemon tea.. And artificial citrus. Sweet and tea like flavors. Thin and watery. Average.

exeter (454) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Came in the Summer box set. Poured a golden colour with a very short lived head. Has a nice light lemon flavour and some spiciness to it. Very refreshing. It’ll make you want to mow the lawn, even in winter, if you have enough.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
473ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden amber in colour with a thin quickly dissipating white head, very light lacing. The aroma is of lemons, soap, flowers, light cereal and grains. The flavour is of light lemons, floral, quite soapy, sweet, some toasted caramel malts, earthy, iced tea. Sweet mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a bit of lemons, watery with some sweetness. Not to fond of this. The lemons add a strong chemicalness to this. Possibly the Stock Ale with lemon flavouring?

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Pours a dark amber with a thick white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aromas are very light. A mild maltiness and some wet cardboard. Both faint. Not really getting much lemon, or tea. Maybe a slight whiff of vanilla in there. Light mouthfeel. Hints of caramel malts up front, lemon finally comes through on the actual swallow, although quite light. Overall add this one to Mill Street’s unfortunate growing stack of unremarkable and forgettable beers.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Surprised this 16 oz can is 5%. Thought it would be less. $3 @vintage estate. Nice head, darker hefe like pour. Not much aroma but I guess it does have a little lemon perfume thing going on. Much more impact than expected, was thinken this would be some low alky shandy thing, boy was I wrong. Lemon yes, but its more like something unsweetened, not like lemon aide @ all. Weird, like lemon with just a tad of tea and the big beery thing inthe background. On wing night, this is not as good as a yeengy B&T but SWTF? Yea, has enough alky to let you know its beer but its not possessive of any real ill ale attributes. Go figger, a wheat eh?

On tap at the Ottawa beerfest. An opaque light gold pour, the aroma is malty lemon with nice bready notes. A really nice lemon iced tea beer / tasty.

Aroma of slight grain and mostly lemonade dominating. Clear yellow in color. Taste is grain with a strong lemon flavour. A different brew but interesting and easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Very refreshing beer. Reminds of hard ice tea, but not so cheap tasting, as it still tastes like beer. A real easy drinker with a light sweet lemony body. The hints of tea are nice as well. Well balanced for the type of beer, but I not big on the style.
