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.

HeistAlmighty (1123) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 23, 2013
341ml bottle. Hazy banana yellow, moderate white head. Smells like wheat and lager, hint of spice. Taste isn’t strong, but reasonably complex. Wheat, cardboard, hint of coriander, citrus and banana. Big toasted grain. Average body. Overall, inoffensive, which is a bit of surprise from Molson. Good patio, beach, summer fair.

czar (4280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
pours pale yellow with a frothy white head, good retention and surprising lacing. absent aroma if not a graniness, a hint of lemon and grass. average to soft carbonation, light body - very watery, bland herbal finish. nothing offensive for sure, but DP it is.

Strangebrewer (844) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
can. Poured slightly hazy, pale yellow with a bleach white head. Lemon citrus, faint yeasty aroma. Prickly carbonation, light body. Grainy, kinda bland citrus flavour, macro wheat brew. Meh!

wolffish (180) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Respectable comme entrée en matière pour un semblant de blanche de la part d’un macro-brasseur. Un fait demeure, je n’an rachèterai que si c’est la moins pire disponible (je me croirais un jour d’élections fédérales!!).

swiseman (427) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
thick, but quickly dissipating head with thin white lacings left on the glass. aroma is typical macro lager. color is typical macro lager with some cloudiness. initial taste is similar to a mild German-style wit, but that quickly turns to more of a typical macro lager. finishes with some hops. Overall, better than I expected BUT not by much.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
473 mL Can described as "unfiltered wheat beer". Murky straw body with a frothy 1-finger white head settling to a tenacious film leaving lots of spotty lace. Aroma of cereal grains, sweet corn, and pungent earthy-grassy hops, and subtle notes of pear and green grapes. Sweet corn stands out more that I like here for the taste and the lightness of the body reflects it; this is where it "struggles" to deliver on its credentials. There is an aftertaste of light clover honey that I find definitely likeable but it shifts to sweet corn then off to a clean finish. Smooth carbonation and remarkable smoothness in the mouth for a beer of its class earns it a few bonus points. Potentially a "crown jewel" in the Molson line but nothing sensational otherwise.

Frothmeister (551) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2013
473ml can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow / beige with a large white head, and some visible sediment. Faint cereal notes on the nose with some lemon, and yeast. Watery, and thin bodied with some faint lemon, followed by familiar domestic malt notes, and a finish that is kind of cardboard, kind of yeast. What is this? Is this supposed to be like a hefeweisse? I’m not sure this needs to exist, other than to prove the big guys are getting a little worried about the micros.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy deep yellow with a decent, white rocky froth. Aroma: Sorta wheaty and lightly tangy, a little dusty, some yeast character, boiled cereals, meh. Palate: Medium-ish body, very soft effervescence. Flav.: Light wheat/cereal, some yeasty, doesn’t seem to be tangy, a touch of hay/grass, dusty; dry with minimal bitterness and a sorta hint of tang and wheat finish.

Pretty forgettable.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 6/20
shorlin (639) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Poured into a weizen glass. A nice cloudy pale yellow, pillowy thick pure white head. Nice looking beer. Aroma is pretty much all Molson Canadian. Maybe a little grassier. There could be a hint of something like wheat beer aroma, maybe (just maybe) extremely mild clove. Taste is lighter than Molson Canadian, but without any of the good wheat notes that I expected. It’s not even as tasty as Rickard’s White. I could see drinking this like water on a hot day, but why would you? Palate is there and gone.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that surprisingly retains quite well but does not leave any lacing as it settles. Aroma is mild citrus and grains. Taste is uninspiring with grains and grass. Light bodied with good carbonation. But, still a macro brewed swill that does not deserve any respect. Not recommended.
