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.

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 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.

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
