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.

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
500 mL bottle from ANBL, courtesy of the Probstk. A yellow ale with a thick dense lacing white head. Atoma of buckwheat, lactic acid, and grass, with light pepperyness. In mouth, a lightly sweet malt, light banana and lightlactic acid notes, a bit off, but not unpleasant. Its a good I didn’t wait to consumme this.

probstblueribbon (2872) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2006
500 mL bottle from ANBL. Bright straw with orange hues, lightly clouded. Smallish, frothy white head. Very grainy nose with lightly vegetal notes. Thin body and sharp carbonation. Very tart and almost no flavour. None of the typical wheat beer / weizen characteristics. I suspect this bottle has turned. What a shame.

Eructoblaster (2958) - 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.

swiseman (426) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
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)

JRHBrew (366) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 21, 2005
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 (7638) - 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.

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.
