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.

Bière blonde opaque de 4.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col mousseux et épais et aussi un odorat sucré. Elle possède un arrière-goût épicé et gras. Il y a aussi un goût céréalier, on goûte bien le blé, mais comme de la farine de blé. Correcte !

Smells like a lager before pouring it. Looks the part of an unfiltered wheat beer. From glass I can smell some wheat beer and a bit of lager still. Taste starts of like a fruit beer(lemon,lime,orange)and what. Later in the after taste its kinda orange and some what. I like some wheat beers more then other’s. For spmething under molson canadian name it’s awsome., for a wheat beer still good but I like other whaeat’s more and once one tasted like no wheat beer and all hoppy. So this beer here suprised me alot refreashing and good. I enjoyed it. Cheer’s. Deff worth trying.

473 ml can from the lcbo. Pours hazed yellow with a white head. Looks really nice. Pale malt, wheat and a little citrus in the aroma. The flavour is clean wheaty, with a touch of citrus. The finish is off dry. This is a actually a nice little lawn mower beer. I’m glad I tried it.

Papillon (379) - 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.

Couleur jaune trouble. Nez plutôt timide, acide et légèrement citronné. Goût anonyme de blé. C’est peu sucré, si vous cherchez ce côté d’une blanche, vous serez déçu. Plutôt fade en vérité, et manque de personnalité. Pour introduire quelqu’un aux blanches? Je ne sais trop...

Bouteille de 341 ml dégustée chez mes parents. Arôme: Odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde pâle avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Légère goût de céréale avec une pointe de citron. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4975)

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.

Picked up a 473mL can from the Likbow for the lulz. Hazy pale yellow with a large white head, although not nearly hazy enough to suggest that this wasn’t filtered at least once. Aroma is faint but inoffensive, light citrus and yeast. Flavour has a lot of sweetness to it in a way that reminds me of the garbage-tier flavours of regular Molson Canadian, but with some redeeming dryness and lemony zing that add balance. Finishes sweet with an oily feel that is not consistent with the dry yeast and peppery effervescence. I wouldn’t bother with this again but it’s not as bad as I was worried it might be. It only bothers me as it stands as Molson’s attempt to break into the craft beer market in the absolute least imaginative way conceivable.
