Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly cloudy straw color with good strength activity. Weak white half a finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with average legs. Pleasant floral aromas with a strong biscuity feel from sweet malts. Flavors caramel, grains, lemon, apple, floral and herbal spices. Nice mix of wheaty, bready and biscuity feel. More sugary, but still with a good sharpness. Smooth light to medium body with good carbonation. Faint finish of medium length, ending with a roasted malt feel and some floral and noble spices tongue coat. Overall a pretty good craft offering tasty flavors and very good freshness. Weak visually and the feel is a little faint.

sudomorph (1066) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Draft at King Street Ale House. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma has notes of bread, grain, caramel, citrus, and slight wheat. Taste is balanced but slightly sweet with mild notes of bread, citrus, grains, corn, wheat, and grassy hops. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth. Overall easy drinking and approachable. Bready citrus, caramel, grains, and slight grassy hops.

jksipa (750) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap at Red Herring, St Andrews. Clear pale amber with a tiny short lived white head. Nose is grain, light honey, light toffee and a hint of grass and spice. Flavour is similar but quite subdued with a light sweetness and light+ bitterness and light spice. Mouth is quite thin with soft carbonation. Inoffensive. 6/2+/6-/2+/11

Hidden_Pooch (511) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a hazy straw colour with tiny, fast dissipating head. Aroma is of wheat, honey, spice, corn, and cereal. Tastes of honey,spice, and finishes with cereal and corn. Has a light crisp body with low carbonation. It has a dry vinous finish. Corn flavour is a little too dominant with this beer.

vadie (1225) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
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.

ljthiessen (1075) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
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.

yourilevesque (1235) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
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.

northropfrye (3199) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
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.

cards04 (2628) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
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.

DomD (246) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
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.
