COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
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.

Nearly clear golden. Puffy white head. Strong wheat aroma. Taste has a light citric sweetness. Thin, watery texture.

Pale yellow pour. Floral aromas. Taste is sweet grains but also watery towards the end. Not great

Second disappointing beer I've tried from these guys in the last couple weeks. Nose is weird. It's....unpleasantly wheaty, with weird toasted and sweet notes. Taste is a mild improvement, which isn't saying a hell of a lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pale yellow colour, clear, with a small white head. Head is pretty tasty, but doesn’t stick around too long, but luckily leaves some lacing behind. The aroma is a little hops but quite grainy. A little sweet and then fairly bitter towards the finish. Light-bodied, smooth mouthfeel, easy to drink.

Wheat ale? Really? I’d suggest its a corn ale. Ugh. I remember a cross country trip in the ’90’s & thinking this was something. I was wrong. It’s not. Tastes like sweet corn water fermented on a sweaty guy’s lush back hair. It’s sour without trying to be. Regret buying this. Don’t regret that road trip. It was epic. Avoid this beer.
