pootzboy (1635) - Hawgville, Ontario, - AUG 6, 2012
On tap at Gig’s: A hazey pale straw color with a puffy cap. Aroma is intense grapefruit-citrus with bisquity malts in the background. Flavour has big PacNW hopping (Greapefruit/citrus) balances with dry biscuity wheat malts, light fruity esters.Dry crisp finish with a nice hop bite. This is an interesting mutation of a Berliner weiss with PacNW pale ale - pale ale fruity eaters with weiss dryness and APA citrus - nice sipping ale

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!

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
472 ml can from OCB Awards judging, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy straw with a decent bright white head. Aroma: Really strong lemony hops, a little cat piss, light resin/pine, a touch of tropical fruit, not much malt character. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly lively carbonation. Flav.: Citrus and cat pee hops, a little wheat-like malt character, kinda weak and watery on the finish; dry with moderate bitterness and a citrus/cat pee, watery finish.

Meh. Very much meh.

Jan. 31, 2015. In January’s Brew Box. Can. Very pale cloudy yellow with white head. Citrus, lemon aroma. Pine, citrus flavours; quite bitter. Nice lacing. Too bitter for my taste, had to give half of my glass to someone else to finish.

shaynsawchuk (661) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
473 mL can. Hazy pale off yellow with a thick lacy white head. Big lemon, orange and light pine on the nose. A hint of pineapple, citrus zest and wheat malt. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and a creamy, sticky mouthfeel. Dry and gently bitter on the finish. Lingering lemony-ness. Super refreshing, hoppy goodness.

sudomorph (908) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3054) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A cloudy straw gold pour with a filmy white head and great lacing. Hoppy citrus aroma, light Belgian notes. The taste is mildly bready, sweet, zesty citrus hop - tasty.

Big fan. Picked up straight from the brewery and loved the flavour. A good any time of day any time of year type beer.
