I drank this striaght out of the bottle after climbing to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain in Campbellton NB. I’m assuming it looks decent, so I’m giving the appearance a 3/5. Flavours were very pleasing after a 2km slog up and down a mountain: sweetly wheaty, with prominent melon and citrus fruit, and a very nice subtle spiciness. Maybe it was the circumstances under which I enjoyed it, but this is probably the best beer by this little maritime micro!

Aroma: first impression is very doughy, mellows to caramel. Appearance: clear. Flavour: drinkable, but i found neither the citrus nor spice notes to be particularly present. Palate: I found the first sips to have an inconsequential finish, later finish was on the bitter side.

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2009
From bottle. Citrus, honey and syrupy aroma. very clear light golden colour. Thin white lace. Initial flavour was strong in citrus. Brief hint of tropical fruits and watermelon. Thin texture yet very refreshing and enjoyable ale.

Pours nice golden yellow with white head. Very little lacing. Slight scent of citrus. Light-bodied, too much carbonation, and small bit of diacetyl in the taste.

A wheat beer fermented with a proprietary ale yeast. pours a hazy straw color with a long lasting head nice and spicy character that is balanced with a bit of creaminess. exhibits a long lasting mouthfeel reminiscent of well whaet.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured with an average-sized, white head; pretty good lacing. Body was clear and sparkling, with a nice, golden-yellow color. Very nice aroma of wheat... much more apparent than some other wheat ales I’ve tried. On the palate, the body was medium, thin yet slightly creamy, with average carbonation. Nice flavor with an average duration.. you can really taste the wheat here... this ain’t no Grasshopper. Overall, a very enjoyable wheat ale that makes a great summer beer... I could easily have several of these.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur dorée et une mousse blanche imposante et persistante. Au nez on découvre des arômes de blé, de coriandre, de pommes vertes et d’orange. En bouche le corps est mine avec une effervescence élevée. On goûte des saveurs acidulées de levure, de blé, de pain, d’orange, de pommes vertes et de pamplemousse.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Clear golden. White head disappears fast. Off-putting aroma of soda pop, orange, and general weirdness. Fizzy, gassy, prickly mouthfeel and palate. Tastes like soda water gone awry with rotten fruits. Horrid.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2008
Golden-straw colour. I do get some orange peel underneath heavy-handed stank foot notes and abundant diacetyl in the aroma. Some orangey notes but lots of blandness. Lame, goes nowhere. There is absolutely nothing good to offer as a payoff for putting up with that butterbomb aroma.
