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.

I don't really know what the difference between taste and palate are. This is a really great summer beer, flavorful and fruity but light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well this was a nice surprise! I tried a wheat ale a while back and didnít 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.

thick, white head with a very pleasant wheat smell. also with a smidgen of citrus.head however dissipates quickly. . deep golden, straw color with tons of bubbles that rush quickly to the top. nice full bodied flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. very dry. I Love this beer and could drink it all day long. shame its only a summer seasonal beer.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 It isnít 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)

Slightly cloudy straw color with good strength activity. Weak white half a finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with average legs. Pleasant floral aromas with a strong biscuity feel from sweet malts. Flavors caramel, grains, lemon, apple, floral and herbal spices. Nice mix of wheaty, bready and biscuity feel. More sugary, but still with a good sharpness. Smooth light to medium body with good carbonation. Faint finish of medium length, ending with a roasted malt feel and some floral and noble spices tongue coat. Overall a pretty good craft offering tasty flavors and very good freshness. Weak visually and the feel is a little faint.

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.

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!

Light yellow, short and thick head that lasts. Very pleasant aroma for the style. One of the best balanced beers Iíve 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.

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. Thereís 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.

18 month old bottle to pint glass...weíll see how this goes Lots of yeast, horse blanket, yeast, and a little pepper. Cloudy yellow with a frothy vibrant white head. Taste is wheat, lemon, funk, and pepper. I think this has aged well, because itís not too bad.
