3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A light on taste but highly refreshing summer thirst quencher.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Light wheaty nose with a touch of lemon. Taste is light but very pleasant and refreshing. Some pineapples, crisp unsweetened wheat, some other topical fruits, a light lemon presence. Pleasant tartness. A little dryness despite the fruity flavours. Extra non-aggressive. I cannot give super high marks to a beer that is so light on taste. However this is not a bland beer and on the hot-day-refreshing scale this scores very high. This is certainly one of the best inoffensive thirst quencher beer I’ve had. Had this been available up north in my homeland of Montreal I would have drank this all the time during our hot summer days. All three of them.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is rather bland wheat and some honey sweetness. Flavor is a bit soapy with some wheat and banana sweetness. Really not very pleasant. Saving grace is an interesting tart crispness in the finish. Not Psmouth’s best effort

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one pours a hazy golden amber with a soapy white head that showed good retention and decent lacing.
The aroma was less sweet than I expected with only small amounts of the wheat and bubblegum sweetness common in the style. There were some decent citrus hops in there. The taste is a little more complex and has more banana sweetness than the aroma. There is a solid wheat base with the hops coming back in the finish.
The mouthfeel is crisp with a slight hoppy/sour tang at the finish that lingers between sips. This is a pretty good beer and definitely drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

A yellow hazy color with a tarty taste. Not the best, but not the worst wither.

Draught, sample @ brewpub. Yellowish and hazy. Nose is subdued. Very nice mellow, rounded flavors, balanced and smooth. Slight hop finish. Sweetness present in beginning rounds out with lingering malt/hop purity in finish. Interesting.
