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.

This was not bad. Darker than pale lager body, almost amber, nice head and lacing. Aroma is grainy, plus citrus, a touch tart/spice, earthiness. Overall, a pretty nice wheat ale. I was surprised when I poured and tasted this, as it actually had flavour and depth.

Boring stuff. Tastes almost like a standard macrobrew pale lager. A bit of grain and citrus in the nose and palate...but that’s about it.

Poured from bottle. Arome of wheat and cough drop. Pours a hazy pale with white head. Taste is light sour. Medium body, oily texture, somewhat astringent finish. Not impressed with the first taste, the cough syrup flavour seemed rather strong at first, but faded somewhat after that initial sip.

One whiff, one taste and I am getting lots of butter and corn. Yes, there are some gentle spices and very faint notes of nondescript citrus fruit. I still kind of enjoy this lil’ ditty, it is rather refreshing with a mellow and smooth body and lightly prickly carbonation. The sweetness is cut nicely by the vague citrus hops. As a Summer sipper, not too shabby but I wouldn’t go buy these again. Sure beats macro junk.

Draft at Laundromat in Moncton. Crystal clear golden color. Aroma of straw. Taste is bitter. peppery, plain.

Pours a golden yellow with a bit of haze. No real head and no lacing. The taste starts with sweet wheat flavours and then muted citrus and spices. Kinda boring.

Une blonde, d’été, comme ils l’annoncent, où une mousse est entretenue par un effervescence à grosses bulles, le temps d’un soupir. Des arômes de blé, acidulés et fruités d’une drôle de façon. Ça semble artificiel. Son goût aussi est étrange. Sucré, fruité avec des élans de gomme balloune. Par moment ça semble épicé et à d’autres, ça semble moisi. Un peu une déception dans mon cas.

Pours a golden-blonde colour with a white creamy-foamy head, slight hazy in the beer and creamy foam lacing. Grainy cereal malt nose with a little sweetness, like hints of honey. The taste starts off grainy, but the finish is quick. After a few sips, very mild cereal lingers in the aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel, with still pretty decent body for a light beer. Quite refreshing on this muggy summer day. Does the job !

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.
