473ml can purchased at brewery. It a Wellington Ale so you know itís good. Has a light somewhat earthy taste of hay, and nuts. Not the best wellington has to offer but very good for a light wheat beer

473 mL can. Golden orange with a white head which quickly fades to almost nothing. Itís an American style wheat, so itís crystal clear. You can smell some meaty wheat/barley malt in the aroma, but not much else. The flavour is light, but they seem to have hit on a nice proportion of wheat malt, and you can still taste a little yeast. (!Maybe itís supposed to be a Kristal?) Itís a little sweet, and the hops donít stick around after the initial taste. But if you take it for what it is, itís a nice, simple, inoffensive sittin-on-the-dock beer.

can. Poured pale straw coloured with a thin white head. Light sourish grainy aroma. Light smooth mouthfeel. Cereal grainy flavour, nice sweet bready malt finish.

WTF Wellington, seriously, living in Guelph Iíve come to love this brewery, so when I saw they released a wheat ale, I was pretty stoked. . . But this ...THIS!?!?! This isnít a wheat ale, itís not even cloudy, it looks like a pale lager, more or less smells and tastes like a pale lager...I mean.......is it horrible, no, itís not offensive in any way, other then that they are passing it off as a wheat ale. I would say the only time this thing even has any hint of being a wheat beer is in the finish, which is lightly dry, with a hint of bread. Thats about it, no fruit esters, no yeastiness, really just adjuncts. I guess if they set out to make a refreshing beer, with little flavor, that doesnít taste like total adjuncts crud when it warms up, they succeeded, but other then that, this beer is a fail as a wheat beer and barely a pass as a beer beer. Shame on you Wellington, you hurt my feelings with this, brew more Russian Imperial Stout and market the crap out of it.

50 cl can, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Medium gold colour, more of a lager aroma than wheat, low carbonation and a mellow flavor, some pepper on the finish with a faint bitterness.

473mL can poured golden into goblet with about a finger of white head and some lacing. Aroma is grain and floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet with some hop bitterness and a slightly peppery finish. Lightly carbonated and light bodied. Nicely balanced beer that goes down nice on a hot summer day.

473ml can. Agree with most others. It's ho-hum at best. Decent head, dies fast. Lace is marginal. Actually impressed with the clarity of this wheat beer (Lovibond 3). Tha aroma is faintly floral. Tastes quite bland though. Only the slightest bitterness in the finish. Lacks pep and carbonation.

From can. I canít help but think the brewing recipe for this beer has changed over its short lifespan. Originally full of flavour for a wheat beer it seems a bit more bland when I try it now. Still at least average.
