3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 mL Bottle sampled Dec 24, 2009. Murky pale straw body with a soapy-bubbly white head. Aroma of yeast, ginger, orange peel, and innuendos of earth and cloves. Fruity-wheat flavor with a strong expression of cloves in the aftertaste. There is a subtle expression of bubblegum in the finish. Nice light bubbly feel in the mouth. Yeah, I’ll ride this horse again on a breezy sunny summer afternoon.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice wheat beer. Citrus nose. Taste is highly carbonated with orange, lemon. Taste is weaker than some wheat beers and that’s where this falls short.

341mL brown glass twist-top bottle. No date. From Super Marché Rahman in Montreal.
Appearance: Cloudy yellow brown, like lemonade with a splash of iced tea. Almost no head, but constant tiny white bubbles.
Nose: Simple and focused orange peel and light spice notes (yeast).
Palate: Medium bodied and sharp with some acid (citric). Flavors or lemon, sour orange and dried yeast. Moderately long and surprisingly nice finish.
Notes: A very focused attempt. Simple and solid. Would be killer with some spicy Thai or Vietnamese food.
