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.

Jaune brillante avec une moyenne robe blanche. L’arôme du blé, malt léger, céréales et houblon floral. En bouche c’est le même, mais peu du corps. Bonne eu rafraîchissante mais rien de spéciale.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel with just a hint of citrus. Flavour is quite sweet, mostly caramel with some bread and bubblegum notes. A lot of flavour for the ABV, but that's not really a good thing here. Pretty disappointing, and I wasn't expecting much.

Bière blanchâtre aux pâles reflets verdâtres et maussades. Si ce n’avait été de la mince mousse présence en surface, la bière ne présente aucun signe de vie; pas même la moindre effervescence du fond du verre qui eut été la bienvenue. Au nez, je sens du blé sûr voire moisi accompagnant des arômes d’humidité - témoignage d’une dure fermentation. Le déplaisir se poursuit en bouche avec ces mêmes notes de pelure de banane, de blé sûri et de pain mal conservé. Plutôt ronde, assez effervescente et à l’arrière-goût amer et déplaisant, cette bière n’est absolument pas pour moi.

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.
