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.

Woah, quite a bit of yeast sediment floating around this thing, not sure that Anytown Canada is ready for this!! Appearance decent. Half decent aroma, with some citrus and grainy cereal, but lacking much depth (i.e lack of banana, clove, bubblegum or coriander). Flavour again not bad, well made beer but lacking some depth. Mouthfeel is pretty good, moderately high carbonation and a clean finish leaving a refreshing citrusy aftertaste. I’d take this over a "regular" Canadian anyday.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a medium white frothy head. Aroma is wet sock with some wheat. Taste is some wheat, some yeast and not a whole lot else.

JoeMcPhee (8530) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Pale yellow- straw colour. Cloudy haze with a thick white head. The aroma is quite light. A touch of wheat and pale malt. Very light citrus acidity on the back of the oalate but still fairly watery. Meh - kind of nothingy.

Spab (2510) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
473 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a hazy straw yellow with puffy white head and lots of floaties. Aroma is adjunct and light wheaty malt. Flavour is less adjunct more wheat. Light to medium body. Meh.

Canmoore (280) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a cloudy pale straw colour, with a thick foamy white head. Aromas include crackers, citrus, spices. Taste notes include very slight citrus, metallic notes, slight sweetness, corn, very bland and watery. Better than most Molson products, but still a pretty weak wheat beer.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
473ml can, 4.5% a/v Cloudy gold pour with a nice white head. Aroma is molson canadian with some wheat added (wonder if the recipe is that different based on the smell). Taste is also very similar to Canadian and very generic. I don’t even want to go further with this rating. What a wasted opportunity by Molson.

Metalchopz (2363) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a creamy white cap that last quite a long time. A very long time and the lacing is thick all-around. The aromas are a different thing though. Not as nice. Smells like the typical Molson Canadian adjuncts. The taste is pretty weak, as the alcohol content has gone down compared to the regular one. A little wheat with some light citrus notes in the finish. They seemed to have made this one milder to not offend the regular Molson Canadian drinkers, but to make most feel a little better because of the unfiltered higher-end-looking brew. We’ll see how well this does this summer.

pintbypint (2668) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
341ml brown bottle. Medium yellow colour, hazy. Small white cap and some light lacing. Nose is wheaty, lemony, fruity. Taste has wheat malts and assorted grain and bread, slightly fruity, light lemon note. Bready finish with slight grass. Light bodied, average macro style carbonation. A bit better than I expected, pretty light overall, but there are far worse macro choices out there.

Radek Kliber (6520) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 25, 2013
Bottle 341 ml
Aroma mild nose, slight fruity hints, slightly astringent. Mild tartness. Slightly phenolic. Bland 4+
Appearance poured hazy as murky amber-gold brew. Large frothy white top. Short lived. Still fairly presentable. 4-
Flavor and Palate : Medium light bodied. Clean, smooth on sweeter side. Nice unfiltered beer texture given. Chewy softness with thinner finish. Approachable and welcoming. Satisfying to less demanding beer drinkers.

Canette 473ml. De couleur jaune pâle et voilée. Nez léger de grains de céréales sucrées avec des notes de levures fruitées (agrumes), de blé et de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse. Notes de levures fruitées aux faibles notes acides (agrumes, surtout de citron) aux faibles traces épicées (coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales légèrement sucrées avec des notes de blé ainsi que des traces de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées). Post-goût court, composé de notes amères de houblon herbeux avec des traces de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) et de grains.
