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.

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.

On tap at the garrison ale house in Fredericton. Piscatory will be mad but I didn’t take copius notes so am letting down the rate beer community. Sorry

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
500 ml bottle - pours clear gold with a thin white head that soon fades to nothingness. Arome very light, sweet - green apple, honeyish malt. Flavour similarly light - not much more than sweat malt, a hint of wheat, light fruit. Slightly spicy finish. A decent, if bland, summer quaff.

Draft. Clear blonde with small white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is wheaty. Taste is grains, citrus and honey with a tiny bit of bitterness and spices. Palate is refreshing.
