3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle from New Brunswick Liquor Corporation on King Street, Saint John, New Brunswick (May 2007) served a bit below cellar temperature from a Samuel Smiths pint glass. Pours a very pale, just faintly hazy straw color, with a moderate quick-diminishing snow-white head that leaves no lacing.....the nose offers a touch of diacetyl, alas (infections don’t seem uncommon in this brewer from my first few tries), but there’s some interesting sour apple, lime, and a touch of sea air wafting through as well......body is lemony, vaguely sour, a touch of berry sweetness at the front but then quite dry from midpalate on, pretty thin and watery like the Bitter I had last night....reasonably crisp, dry finish. The thinness really kills this one but the end result isn’t undrinkable.

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.
