COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered, light-bodied American wheat ale is brewed with forty percent wheat malt and just enough hops for tangy, thirst-quenching refreshment. One of our most popular offerings, it is an excellent choice for those looking for a lighter beer.

Draft at the brewpub - Poured a golden amber in color with a small bright white head. Flavor is grainy with an underlying citrus character. Slightly sour on the finish. Easy drinking and good...

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
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.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - SEP 17, 2009
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

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2008
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.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
Cloudy dull tan. Not much head. Lightly wheaty, lightly yeasty aroma. Wheaty palate, slight lemon accent. There’s a hint of tartness late. Clean, simple Am wheat.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2008
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.

5th of my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Pours yellowish with an off white ring head. Nose is light wheat. Taste is wheaty with a tasty full mouth feel. Better than I’d expected.
