COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours hazy orange yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is mostly green tea with some lemon. Taste is a bit grassy, lemon, green tea. Light in the mouth. Not my favorite but good.

473ml can 5.0% ABV I tried this beer on June 15, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent honey-gold colour into the glass with orange hues and a 1" thick foamy head. The aroma is lemon, tea, and some grainy malt tones. The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavour was bitter tea, citrus, and some malt balance.

Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC
Cloudy deep blond color, compact head. The malt aroma is a bit biscuity. Weak mouthfeel; papery flavor, with a very light lemony touch. Low bitterness.
Useless.

Had quite a few times during the summer. Just putting in the notes now. Lighter pour, lit to medium body, lots of lace. Lemon takes a back seat to tea here in the aroma. More lemon while drinking this, yeast, wheat, grassy, but not terribly exciting. Monstrously drinkable though, and works great as a conversion beer for those idiots drinking coors iced tea on your patio.

This is from notes taken in the summer. Light pour, thin head. Very much tea forward. a refreshing treat, not my favorite style but solid for a flavoured... didnt taste artificial to me. Enjoyable and worthy of another purchase. Im pretty sure this was enjoyed on me deck in the sunshine. Thanks Lagerboy.

Bahumat (76) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pretty pour with half inch white head. Fades to thick lacing. Beautiful golden colour! Flavour is good lager with strong tea afternotes, very light lemon. Not a big fan of lagers, but this one is pretty solid, and the colour is beautiful.

On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Medium golden pour. Aroma of lemon and orange rinds, wheat, and slight grassy (not hoppy) notes. Flavor is immediately dry from the tea with orange peel and lemon. Strong tea presence in the finish, which leaves it dry. Definitely comes off as a beer that would have its lovers and haters, and I lean more toward the former.

Stealth sample from Shawna’s glass as she heads out the door to pick up our dinner from Pizza Pied. Oh boy here we go again with that southern Ontario skunky after taste. A little surprised with Mill Street on this one. It’s like they stole Steamwhistle’s penny tasting water for this one.

lesifflebiere (1036) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Orange trouble, couleur pêche en fait, plutôt épaisse et très fruitée au nez. Il ressort des odeurs d’abricot, de pêches et de miel. Au goût, citron, sucre qui donne une profonde rondeur à la bière, avec des fruits jaunes et du thé en toute fin. Plutôt sucrée, mais relativement rafraîchissante et désaltérante, elle peut être agréable selon les circonstances, mais comme c’est trop souvent le cas avec ce type de bières, on ne décèle pratiquement aucune céréale ni aucun houblon.

Hazy yellow amber beer. Kind of fizzy, but not bad. Citrusy aroma, pretty much lemony but also a bit more complex. Reminds me vaguely of NeoCitran, but that’s not too bad because hey, who doesn’t like NeoCitran? Taste is actually pretty good, more iced tea at the beginning and then more lemony at the end. Not my cup of tea (hilarious!) but probably good for a refresher on a hot day.
