COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This original ale combines the wheat beer traditions of Germany and Belgium with our English open fermentation process. The result is a vibrant, refreshing summer ale highlighted by gentle spice and citrus notes.

thick, white head with a very pleasant wheat smell. also with a smidgen of citrus.head however dissipates quickly. . deep golden, straw color with tons of bubbles that rush quickly to the top. nice full bodied flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. very dry. I Love this beer and could drink it all day long. shame its only a summer seasonal beer.

No head. No lacing. Citrus hops in the nose. Fresh grass. Aroma quite dull. The palate is acidic, light in body, short finish. Strong hop bitterness. Some citrus sweetness, but very crisp and dry.

Very inconsistent quality. Aroma is mostly lacto and diacetyl with sour notes. These brewers really need to start focusing on sanitation. Can’t talk about quality and then put out a beer like this.

500ml brown bottle. Golden with a small white cap. Nose has grain, wheat and citrus. Taste has wheat and grains and lemon. Typical wheat ale, fine for summer drinking, a bit plain.

500ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and citrus. Taste is a light citrus hop bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A well done brew for the style. Recommended.

18 month old bottle to pint glass...we’ll see how this goes Lots of yeast, horse blanket, yeast, and a little pepper. Cloudy yellow with a frothy vibrant white head. Taste is wheat, lemon, funk, and pepper. I think this has aged well, because it’s not too bad.

I don't really know what the difference between taste and palate are. This is a really great summer beer, flavorful and fruity but light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours slightly hazy pale yellow with a decent retention and lacing. coriander, light herbal notes, hint of sweetness, wheat, yeast, few phenols, some lemons. bright carbonation, light body, bit bland but still decent herbal finish. ok.

Les céréales sont mis de l’avant avec un sucre résiduel un peu maladroit. Peu d’épices accompagne les grains et le corps est plutôt moyen tirant vers le mince croustillant.
