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.

Goodgrief (1895) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 20, 2010
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 (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.

Bomber from the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of biscuity wheat, mild floral hops. Fairly simple. The taste is wheat, citrus and tropical fruits. Thin bodied, mild lingering spice.

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 (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.
