COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A North American wheat beer lightly hopped with the distinctive taste of wheat and malted barley, great on a hot summer day with a slice of lemon, or a splash of black currant syrup or other fruit flavoring. In winter a shot of Schnapps or other fruit liqueur adds pleasant warmth to the brew. The unfiltered version is called Hefe Weizen, a Bavarian specialty. Try it with fresh fruit added.

On tap at brewpub, pours a hazy golden yellow. Smell is of yeast and wheat, taste like wheat up front with some yeast and a bit of a sweet finish.

DuffMan (6798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
On tap, part of the tasting tray offered at the brewpub. Cloudy amber blonde. Aroma of unripened berries, which is odd given that there is no fruit in here apparently. Tart, crisp palate, Quite acidic, with a flavour note of unripened raspberries. Refreshing.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
Draught @ Rockbottom, Halifax, NS: Amber yellow pour, sweet aroma with tangerine, wheat, yeast, coriander and clove. The taste is quite tangy, bready, fairly traditional wheat. Not bad.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
A pale yellow wheat with a thin white head. A nice sweet perfumey malt, with light lemony notes. In mouth, a light sweet malt with light solvent notes, mineral, caramel. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 11 2009.

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2009
Very hazy/cloudy yellow pour. A little bit of light bubble gum and wheaty spice along with a kiss of light fruit. A little bit of apple and pear as well. Palate is fairly watery as well.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at the pub. Pale yellow with a fully diminishing frothy white head. Fruity and lightly grassy aroma with some mineral notes. Fruity, toasty and lightly acidic flavours with a dry lemony, somewhat vegetal finish. Light bodied, but refreshing. Is almost leaning towards a Berliner Weisse - which Iím pretty sure is not what they were going for here unfortunately.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2009
On tap at Rockbottom, Halifax. Im sure this isnít a wheat at all and just the pale ale served with a lemon and orange. Yes a lemon and orange on the edge of my glass. I have to say a very nice fresh piece of lemon and orange indeed. The best part of the beer. The beer has nothing really. Quite bland. Sweet with a citrus hint. Probably from the lemon and orange on the edge of my glass. Not to good Iím afraid. At least now I know what not to order at Rockbottom.
