Smells booty, like fermented fruit juice. Pours a super cloudy arange with pretty good lacing. Aroma has apple cider and tonic water. Smell is very strong but not necessarily good, or representative of style. Taste dies off very quickly, virtually empty aftertaste. Very average beer. On tap.

blankboy (7637) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Draught at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, June 22. Pours a hazy orange with a spare creamy white head. Mild aroma of grain, fruit and some faint sourness. Flavour of grain, wheat and slightly sour fruit. Average to medium bodied. A little overly subtle and simple but still good.

DuffMan (10143) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Guest tap @ Kingston Brewpub. Lovely hazy reddish amber with a medium frothy head that leaves early lace. Aroma is wheaty and lightly yeasty and lightly spicy with a bit of caramel. Flavour is nice and wheaty, light spice, tart finish. Refreshing, tasty patio beer.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
2012-06-22. Hazy orange body with small beige head. 3+ Flavour is on the sweet side overall, lightly fruity character, and a not quite bubble gum like note (esters?) or am I mis-reading that? Mild sweet grain accents. Pleasant aroma, very mild sweet wheat and malt with very mild cereal touches. very smooth average plus bodied palate. Pretty mild and subtle, but quite drinkable, and I found it to be rather nice with a very interesting nuance to the grain bill. Super glad I tried this one. On tap at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, Toronto
