COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
Craft Beers Gold Standard
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you havent, weve bottled it for you. Its prairie goodness so pure that no matter where you choose to enjoy it, just close your eyes to find yourself in that field of dreams.

Little Known Fact
Truly a home-grown, honest-to-goodness Albertan beer. All of Grasshoppers wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2007 A bit on the pale side, clear filtered. Good balance. Bit of a dried grass or hay aroma. Goes down smooth. Doesnt have the personality or citrusy/fruity flavors of other wheat beers though.

A pleasant, very drinkable beer. Perhaps a bit on the weak side. Very nice with food - if had on its own, there's not a lot going for it.

Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is slightly malty. A very light bodied wheat beer. Some malts, some hops. Not much flavor. Beat macro swill, but why bother. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is neutral. NOt ba, but really nothing to recommend it.

Cant escape Grasshopper here in Alberta. In the past I thought it was better than it actually is. Suprisingly weak flavour for a wheat beer. Lacks the crispness of better brands. Average.

A sweet wheat beer with a lemon finish. Very likable in the summer sun, with friends, at work, under the table...

Filtered wheat beers are so creepy. Great head though. Great aroma - sweet, wheaty, some lemon. Flavour was not so impressive, even for an american wheat. Surprisingly bitter, which isnt necessarily bad. But it was also watery, which is bad. Too carbonated.

Not bad, but nothing special. Kind of bland, in my opinion, but the packaging is great. Probably good in the heat.
