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.

Gethinbeer (2400) - 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.

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 (13913) - 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.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle-Pours a hazy yellow topped with a creamy white foam. Little retention or lace. Mildly spicy nose with lemons, banana, and some yeast. Flavour profile is creamy lemon custard with corriander, grapefruit and fruity yeast with a touch of hops. Fruity, mildly hoppy finish with lingering spices. A bit thin on the finish. An enjoyable summer wheat.

JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 24, 2007
Pours a very clear pale straw gold, with a thick head of white suds. Not hazy at all. The aroma is lemon, coriander, rhubarb, hops, celery, and a bit of maltiness. The mouthfeel is crisp, with medium carbonation. The taste is, as labeled, a nice mix of German and Belgian wheat styles. There’s the coriander and wheat tang, with some bitter hops (not at all excessive), some lemon citrus, sweetish malt, and a sour tang (especially big in the aftertaste). A great beer, although it comes across as slightly watered-down.
