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.

Pour was hazy gold color with minimal head and lacing. Faint aroma of bananas. Mild wheaty base with a sweet fruity sweet presence. Smooth mouthfeel with mild carbonation. This reminds me of Bells Oberon, which is a good thing.

Glouglouburp (5944) - 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.

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...

jkwood04 (3792) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light wheat, light malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad wheat ale.

Beershine (5212) - 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.
