Sweet burnt wheat, touch of lemon. Flavor is sweet and savory. That sweet wheat flavor goes south. This is bad stuff.

Enjoyable beer, but a pointless wheat ale, really. Itís only good when judging it as a lager.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2010
2010-08-21. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Sweet wheaty cereal character has overtones of dilute grainy malt. Flavour is quite grainy, pale malt, hint of sweetness and vague character that could be esters but not in a good way. Average to light bodied palate. 2+ Not particularly pleasant, highly disappointing from this brewery. On tap at Beer Bistro, Toronto

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 27JL10.

App.: Clear golden with a so-so, frail white foam. Aroma: A lot of ethyl acetate, pear drop, apple acetaldehyde. Wow. Terrible. Palate: Medium body, medium-ish carbonation. Flav.: A lot of ethyl acetate, much less acetaldehyde, a little malt; dry with solvent on the finish.

A great showcase for defects. WTF, Wellington??

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2010
Draught at Volo. Pours a clear pale gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma: Ugh, not even remotely similar to a Wheat beer: Grain, corn, vegetables and a bit of sweet fruit -- itís pretty bad. Flavourís grainy along with some sugary sweetness and a bit of fruit. Light to average bodied. Dreadful and not on style at all, Wellington should be ashamed to release this as an anniversary beer.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Can- Pale transparent gold. Decants a fizzy white cap with no lace. Nose is grainy and hints at grass and lemon. Tastes grainy, somewhat sweet, and of pale malts and some citrus. Light bodied, slightly bitter finish has some citrus. As emasculated a wheat ale can be.

fullers (268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
Can LCBO. Pours translucent gold with small white head. No discernible wheat beer aroma, the first indication of a problem with this beer. Light bodied, watery, little carbonation. Again, absence of taste characteristic of style. Drinkable but a let down if looking for a taste typical of the advertised style. Another disappointment from a brewery I know can do much better. Iron Duke is such a great beer and Iím looking forward to sampling the stout.

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
Clear pale gold look, uniform dense white head. Aroma is faint yeast and sweet-sour grain. Taste is workmanlike, very safe wheat malt profile with little specific fruit or spice to describe of it. Finish is fairly sweet with a faint tingle of hop. Feel is pretty sticky whereas it might be more refreshing for such a simple beer. I add a small piece of lemon... the citrus takes over a little but this presentation would be fine for people that donít like the taste of beer. itís like a sweet lemon pop. Imagine how great lime must be.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
Can - 473ml. Its blond body is slightly hazy and is topped with a quickly fading white bubbly head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready and subtle yeasty hints. Taste is rather watery. Alongside the thin malty and hoppy flavors, we can detect some bad metallic notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Not my idea of a good Wheat Ale.

Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear gold with small white cap. Aroma is quite corny with some honey. Taste is fairly generic grainy with some honeyish sweetness. Mild carbonation. As virtually everyone else has noticed not a lick of wheat character. Would work fine as lawnmower beer but is basically just a step up from Molbatt pale lagers. Disappointing.
