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.

Eructoblaster (2855) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
On tap at the Taproom (Fredericton, NB). Golden hazy body with moderate carbonation and a thin white creamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with light flowery/herbal notes. Its hoppy taste carries bready and citrusy hints. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Not a great Wheat Beer, but still an refreshing and enjoyable summer beer.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 It isn’t much to look at - typical of the style I suppose. However, the aroma is one of strong fruit and very pleasant. Soft taste that still has a good bitterness on the palate. a perfect summertime beer. Take that Corona! (no lime necessary)

Light yellow, short and thick head that lasts. Very pleasant aroma for the style. One of the best balanced beers I’ve had from the Northampton Bewing Co. This rating exists to inform people that this is the optimal beer to be paired with a club-house sandwich.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
Pale pastel yellow, small fuffy white head (3+) Odd fruity spice in the aroma, presumably coriander. Delicate flavour has a suprisingly high amount of bitterness, with mild spice and a touch of fruit throughout. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Quaffable. Smooth but light palate. Decent.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
bottle. Light golden, small white head with little floaties. Aroma is a bit yeasty, with some spiciness. Flavor is grainy, a bit nutty mildly citric(grapefruit), with a tangy finish.

OKBeer (1168) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
500 ml bottle. Golden colour with a creamy and fizzy white head. Coriander and orange peel along with a dry wheaty aroma. Light spicy citrus, with a wheaty/grainy flavour dominating, and a bitter orange peel finish. Light bodied, dry and fizzy mouthfeel. An ambitious effort for a Maritime micro, but I bet leaving this unfiltered would step this up immensely.

Well this was a nice surprise! I tried a wheat ale a while back and didn’t think much of if - I thought it was kinda bland. This one was quite refreshing. Of course, I may be a bit bias to the only microbrewery in this town..... Pours light yellow, very clear with a meringue-like head. Aroma is citrus, banana nuts and yeast. Flavours are also banana and nuts, somewhat creamy to the palate.
