Craft Beer’s Gold Standard
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you haven’t, we’ve bottled it for you. It’s 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 Grasshopper’s wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2011
Canned (thanks Rosenbergh!). Yellow colour, small head. Aroma is fruits, wheat, grass and some slight cardboardy notes along with some mild caramel notes. Flavour is quite similar with some slight citrusy notes as well.

Travlr (24841) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Piss yellow with no head but slight lacing. Aroma of pink grapefruit, bubble gum and banana. Citrus taste, sour finish, slightly reminiscent of a wheat beer. Light body for the style. Interesting, but not great.

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Draught at Ship and Anchor, Calgary
Blond color. Very common Lager, balanced but anonymous.

mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2010
Can, pours a pale golden. Aroma and flavour of wheat, grain and citrus. Decent.

Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2000
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 Golden colour. Slightly sweaty, vaguely fruity aroma. Bland, watery, with light bready malts and only the vaguest wheatiness. Inoffensive.

TBone (17544) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 8, 2011
Can 330ml (BB 11/2009)
Clear golden color, good white head. Citrus, orange peels, leather in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Citrus, some banana, light hops in the finish. Lingering citrusy notes in the aftertaste.

Ferris (15304) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
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.

Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Golden wheat with a creamy white head. Malty aroma with grassy light mineral notes. In mouth, refreshing malt, cooling, biscuitty notes, medium bodied.

Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2004
Thanks Osborne Freehouse. Grainy and malty sweet. Crisp like a wheat but not much wheat. Thin-medium mouthfeel.
