huineman (967) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2018
33 cl bottle at Fairmont Palliser Hotel, Calgary. It pours clear greenish golden with a short-lasting, snow-white head. Aroma is stale bread, rust, rotten lemon. Yuk! Fizzy and light-bodied, yet tasteless, watery, short-lived, bah.

This is actually the Big Rock Grasshopper Wheat Ale, clean but not much for the citrusy taste here... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eh. This starts out okat, but the wheat grows a little bit. The flavor is kind of bland.

Ferris (22358) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2018
Can - Apple, honey and light wheat. Clear gold with a small frothy white head. Honey sweetness and bready notes. Simple and a bit sweet.

Draft - Light grain sweetness and a touch of corn. Clear light gold with. Decent white head. Sweet creamed sheet and a long sweet finish. A bit too sweet.

czar (11367) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2018 can. pours slightly hazy light gold with a thin white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. sweetish golden wheat, grapey lightly caramelized wort, some herbal blandness with a faint german character, tamed yeast, no particular esters - does not quite feel of weizen origins, soft lingering pepper notes, cardboard traces. moderate to moderately low carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet herbal finish. kristall in a filtered sense with little no weizen character. blah.

Strangebrewer (1596) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2017
can 5%. Poured amber-orange with a thin white head. Subdued grainy orange aroma. Light body, high carbonation, crisp mouthfeel. Light grainy malt flavour, crisp, grainy, slightly peppery hops. Refreshing.

can. Pours clear gold amber with a thin white head. Has a faint corn grain aroma. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with some prickly carbonation. Flavour is a little bland, watery corn malt, and light bitterness. A refreshing beer none the less with an all natural taste.

cmacklin (2074) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2017
330ml bottle. (5% ABV) Pours a clear pale gold with a small, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Mild aroma of bready, grainy, wheat malt, generic orchard fruit and yeast. Sweet flavour of grainy, bready, wheat malt, vague orchard fruit, a hint of lemon and light yeast with a slightly dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Very underwhelming.

341 ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is wheat with some fruit and grass. Flavor is the same with a slight citrus finish. Watery and kind of boring.

scrumpypete (5) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2017 If you are expecting a lovely murky wheaty beer, this isn’t it... Kristall it may be, but the wheat is minimal - more like a pilsner with a bit of doughy ’warm bread’ aroma. Poured cold from a bottle into a glass, it has that slight aroma of not-very-fresh bread which dissipates even though there is minimal foam and almost no lace. The colour is a nice gold-amber though, and clear, unlike the usual hefeweizen. I found it a bit sweet to start - light, getting heavier down the glass. Like most N American beers it leaves a lingering sticky feeling, making me want a glass of water... obviously it isn’t thirst-quenching in that respect. Perhaps I’ll revert to a practice I learned in Edmonton of adding a dash of salt (presumably to replace the dehydration in summer days, but it did add sweetness to the beer)... purist may yell, but right now I’m ambivalent towards it. Light of body, sticky aftertaste, average carbonation with a long thick finish, medium sweetness, and slightly sour,

adamnowek (5120) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2017
Nearly clear golden. Puffy white head. Strong wheat aroma. Taste has a light citric sweetness. Thin, watery texture.

lesifflebiere (1926) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
Dorée et d’une parfaite limpidité, cette kristall est peu pétillante, et émet des notes de sucre d’orge et d’herbe mouillée. Mince et un peu huileuse. La bouche est franchement ennuyante, un peu de miel, un peu de sirop de table, un peu fade, pas grand-chose à souligner. Presque rien ne reste après la moindre gorgée. Certains aspects sont bien faits (désaltérante, un brin de fruité), mais en gros c’est une bière pour débutant, dans un style pour débutant.
