Bomber from Half Time. Pours amber gold with a slight white head. Mild citrus aromas over wheatiness. Med body. It’s lightly citric. somewhat wheaty, lightly astringent, and reasonably hoppy/bitter. Drinks pretty easy. j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a faint orange tinge and a medium sized white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Soft sweet wheat on the nose, a faint hint of yeast. Medium bodied, cool grain. Grainy, with a touch of bitterness and a slight cereal quality. Soft bitter finish with more light wheat sweetness and a bit more graininess. marcus (10880) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours copper with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty wheat flavor with some yeastiness and a dry bitter finish. cubs (10742) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear, golden orange appearance with a white head. Tart citrusy, bitter orange, wheat malty aroma. Fairly grassy hoppy, orange citrusy, bready wheat malty flavor. Not too bad. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2009
My Bottom Line:
blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Doughy cereals and delicate citrusy hoppiness conjure up a crisp and quenching body for this expertly done American Wheat Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim film of foam tops the clear gold.
-The hoppiness gets herbal in the flavor profile and in the finish.
-This is exactly the kind of beer to show you how thorough their brewing and bottling process is. And this beer is as clean as they get.
-The overall flavor profile is very simple, but all is well presented and easy to drink.
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a white head. Lightly sweet aroma with a hint of wheat and a hint of lemon. The flavor has a light sweetness, with light lemony citrus and some wheaty notes. Simple, but very refreshing and drinkable. TaktikMTL (8014) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009

Pale golden pour with minimal haze, but a more than honest white cover. Fairly active carbonation does not hamper its clean, inviting aroma where fresh wheat and soft biscuity, creamy cereals engage you into consumption. The carbonation is highly engaging, while the wheat refreshes. This is done with precision and deserves a markmanship award for its subtlety and restriction, though it likely won’t win any prize at all, being just honest and directly good at what it does.

In short: A clean, basic, true-to-the-style but above average wheat beer. Highly drinkable.Ron (4265) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2010
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh soon after purchase. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Clear golden-yellow body topped by a very small white head
In long: Light nose of cereals/wheat with notes of peaches and bananas. Body is loaded with hay/wheat, light honey touch, a light lemony tartness, some garden flowers. The smooth carbonation is very fitting. There’s not a lot a brewer can do when remaining true to this style so this is a simple beer but a highly drinkable one. Above average for this simple style. Horseheads white men brewing nice Iroquois fire water.
Pure golden color pour. Lots of carbonation produce a large head with decent lacing. Big wheat aroma. Flavor of wheat and citrus. Alittle hops at the end. Decent.
