3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473 mL can. This is not a wheat ale. It’s a "hoppy session ale." It has no wheat in it. Maybe it used to. Maybe this is a completely new beer. I’ll let someone else figure that out. It’s also 4.5%, not 5%. It’s hazy yellow-brown - not pretty - but it does have nice white head. Citruc and pineapple in the nose. A little sweeter in the flavour, but still citrus. Body is on the thin side, but that’s typical for the style. Nice flavour for a North American session beer.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This had such great citrus on the nose and citrus, grapefruit and pine on the tongue that I didn’t even recognize it as a wheat beer. This was recommended to me by a Nickel Brook worker at the Burlington Beer Festival and I subsequently recommended it to my friends as they came in. Everyone loved it!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. 4.5%abv. Canned Oct 15, 2014. Pours a cloudy, light yellow with a half finger, white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has herbal/grassy notes with citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is balanced. Citrus, grassy/herbal/spice, and a short finish. Medium body and carbonation. A bit thin but really clean in the mouth. Overall ok but not my thing. Not a huge fan of sorachi ace so I think that’s turning me off.
