500 ml bottle, from NBLiqour. Pours clear blonde in colour, with big white head. Aroma and taste are somewhat wheaty. Decent. Odd yeast or malt here.

Spab (3334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2010
500 ml bottle from Alcool NB Liquor. Pours a clear yellow with decent-sized lasting white head. Aroma is biscuity with some mild lemon scents. Taste is quite bready with lemon and light spicing. Body approaching medium. Fine carbonation. Refreshing but also has a little character to it.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours clear, slightly off-macro lager yellow with a bubbly white head that leaves a little lace. Nose is a bad confusion of wheat, citrus and spice that comes off slightly poisonous. A little more reasonable in the mouth with a more robust body than expected but itís still got this weird medicinal vibe thatís quite off putting. I donít know if this is an off bottle or just a bad brew. May have to try again...against my better judgement.

DuffMan (9497) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2010
I drank this striaght out of the bottle after climbing to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain in Campbellton NB. Iím assuming it looks decent, so Iím 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!

jackrational (1) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2009 does not count
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 (2452) - 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.

EastCoaster (122) - USA - JUL 28, 2009
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 Iíve 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 ainít no Grasshopper. Overall, a very enjoyable wheat ale that makes a great summer beer... I could easily have several of these.
