COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with Soft White Spring Wheat grown in Canada, Molson Canadian Wheat is our premium unfiltered wheat lager with a taste that’s as smooth as it is refreshing.

473ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow colour, with a surprisingly prominent white head and lacing, Smells sour and pungent, almost citrus-y. Taste is mild, much better than regular Molson Canadian but nothing to write home about. A decent beer for a nice summer’s evening!

473 mL can. Yes I bought a Canadian. Not much aroma, a bit of yeast. Cloudy pale yellow. Rice and cereal on the palate. A bit of wheat and yeast. Kinda astringent finish. Refreshing but not exceptional. I'd order it again in a pinch and it's certainly better than the regular Canadian. But there isn't much here for the enthusiast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best one can say about this is it is a bit better than a Molson Canadian even though you can really taste the similarity. It tastes like Canadian with a bit of wheat added. There is not a lot of wheat but it is there and if you swish the last bit you pour around in the can a bit to get the sediment into your glass it makes it a little more palatable. Still pretty bad though, the only thing that makes it drinkable is the wheat and the wateriness of it which weakens the unpleasant flavours. If this is an attempt by a macro to interest some beer lovers in their product it is a big fail.

Bottle, generously provided to me by Ian, who knows full well that I would never spend money on a whole case of this just to get the tick. If you don’t encourage the sediment in the pour, the result is a grainy sweet lighter version of Canadian. Throw the yeast in there and it softens things up nicely. However they took the safe road with this, as there are no bold yeast esters to frighten away the lager zombies out there. Certainly more palatable than regular Canadian, but then again so was the piss I took this morning.

Not a great wheat beer. Average at best. Same caliber as the Alexander Keith White.

Bouteille de 341ml. Bière blonde jaune légèrement trouble avec une mousse blanche. Au nez ça sent le produit commercial, une pale lager avec une légère acidité de blé. La bouche est insignifiante, loin d’une bière de blé. Un produit commercial pour dupes pui pensent boire une bière de spécialité.

I guess there’s some wheat in here but I’ve had so much experience drinking molson - more than any other beer - that I have a keen sense of taste for the polish they use to clean the inside of their tanks, and this beer doesn’t disappoint. Really not much different from a Molson Dry or Canadian. Bottle.

Hazy yellow pour with a frothy white head. Weak aroma. Malt flavour. Thin body. Metallic nasty finish.

koppertone (43) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
Pours clear with minimal head. Very light with mainly a rice flavor and a very slightly skunky aftertaste. Overall I would choose this over regular Canadian if I were at a bar, but by far not the best lager you could get.

Beer pours a hazed pale gold with a frothy white cap that didn’t last long. The aroma was very similar to a regular Molson Canadian, not much to give any impression that this is a wheat beer. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation...certainly not as thin as a Molson Canadian. The flavour is a little more robust than Canadian with less phenolic notes and a hint of wheat. Still rather metallic and tart however.
