3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber, small off-white head. Quite a bit darker than most beers of the style. Not a very big aroma, subtle notes of wheat, citrus and a tiny bit coriander. What is there is pretty good though, and as it warms up I get more of everything. Low bitterness, medium sweet. Taste is wheat, bit of orange peel, fruity yeast, coriander in the background. Again, pretty subtle, but opens up more as it warms up a bit. Personally, I’m not a fan of to much coriander in a beer, so this works for me. This beer is exactly what it tries to be, refreshing summer seasonal. I wouldn’t recommend drinking it to cold if you want to taste it. Would gladly drink it again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival. A tame, unassuming wheat ale -- dry, doughy, light hay, banana (didn’t catch any of the alleged "citrousy character"). Crisp and bitter on the finish.

I bought one of these last night, it was pretty good. Even my mother, who doesn’t like beer, tasted it and said she likes it. Same with the Zunga.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a huge, puffy white head. Aroma is spice, wheat, and bubble gum. Flavour is the same with some mild brown banana. Lingering bitterness that comes off as sharp and metallic.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose is pretty weak, with notes of wheat and cereal malts. Flavour is very bland, with stale biscuity malts, wheat, and almost an old banana character. Something is wrong here - tastes very stale. Not even very refreshing. A miss.
