Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
A golden wheat ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a sweet honey with loads of fruity esters, light incense notes. In moutm a smooth ale with honey and cereal notes, not bad. Light and smooth. 500 ml can from LCBO. Tasted Dec. 24 2010.

Can. Poured a yellow color with a white head. Aromas and tastes of grains, lighter citrus, and some wheat. Lighter spices as well.

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2010
The can looking OK, and it went all downhill from there. Pours a light yellow body, with a decent white head. Neutral aromas, nothing tempting. Thin mouthfeel, overally dry, no taste. Not drinkable, all but a mouthfeel drain poured. Best I can say is it was not metallic.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Pale golden-yellow pour. The aroma is very light and wheaty. Sort of a bit bubble gummy with a wheaty spiciness. Low hopping rate, but fairly decent. Simple, summery wheat ale.

jercraigs (7921) - 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

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2011
Can, brought and shared by Robbie from Kingston. Medium golden with a low white head. Aroma of sweet grains, flavour much the same. Nothing at all to suggest this is a wheat beer, just a sweet lager. Meh.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 29, 2010
On tap at Volo
Aroma grainy with honey , plain straight without much wheat character
Appearance deep golden appearance with fragmental top. Quiet clear for wheat ale.
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied , grainy, husky with slight softness of wheat . Plain with out depth and character. Flat finish. Wellington can do much better than this.

blankboy (6139) - 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 -- it’s pretty bad. Flavour’s 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.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2010
Draught at Volo 2010-06-25. This lame offering does not deserve much effort put into the rating - we made absolutely certain it was the right beer, and it was. Clear pale gold, kind of flat-looking, small unimpressive white head (3-) - looks NOTHING like a wheat/wit or hefe (repeat that for everything else about this beer). Aroma of - meh, nothing, generic "we don’t want to scare johnny canuck six-pack" aroma of oily grain/corn and excessive sweetness. Tastes the same - not quite as corny, but it really has no character, canola and sugar maybe, but wheat? no way. Light, slightly oily mouthfeel, under -carbonated and attenuated, finishes quick, leaves a slightly unpleasant aftertaste ... why did you bother, Welly? You know better than this - right? Or have the past five years without a new beer offering rusted your skills in the "off" position?

Canette de 473 ml achetée à la LCBO (Ottawa, ONT). Arôme: Légère odeur fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde-orangée légèrement voilée avec une moyenne densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement aqueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’agrumes en arrière goût. (Rating #3476)
