Pale straw pour with a bit of cloudy appearance. Theres a light fruitiness and a touch of lactic tartness as well. Some faint banana and a little bit of melon underneath. Wheaty with a bit of lingering tartness. Its quaffable but I suspect that lacto wasnt supposed to be there.

AgentAle (1572) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
Aroma is straw, tart, clove, citrust and sulphur. Taste is light sweet malts, honey, coriander and citrus. Well balanced and gentle overall. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Pretty meek summer expression. Lacks the citrus notes they advertise. Just good enough to finish the glass. Not good enough to order another.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
Slightly cloudy straw color with good strength activity. Weak white half a finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with average legs. Pleasant floral aromas with a strong biscuity feel from sweet malts. Flavors caramel, grains, lemon, apple, floral and herbal spices. Nice mix of wheaty, bready and biscuity feel. More sugary, but still with a good sharpness. Smooth light to medium body with good carbonation. Faint finish of medium length, ending with a roasted malt feel and some floral and noble spices tongue coat. Overall a pretty good craft offering tasty flavors and very good freshness. Weak visually and the feel is a little faint.

sudomorph (1106) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Draft at King Street Ale House. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin, white head. Aroma has notes of bread, grain, caramel, citrus, and slight wheat. Taste is balanced but slightly sweet with mild notes of bread, citrus, grains, corn, wheat, and grassy hops. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth. Overall easy drinking and approachable. Bready citrus, caramel, grains, and slight grassy hops.

jksipa (811) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap at Red Herring, St Andrews. Clear pale amber with a tiny short lived white head. Nose is grain, light honey, light toffee and a hint of grass and spice. Flavour is similar but quite subdued with a light sweetness and light+ bitterness and light spice. Mouth is quite thin with soft carbonation. Inoffensive. 6/2+/6-/2+/11

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours a hazy straw colour with tiny, fast dissipating head. Aroma is of wheat, honey, spice, corn, and cereal. Tastes of honey,spice, and finishes with cereal and corn. Has a light crisp body with low carbonation. It has a dry vinous finish. Corn flavour is a little too dominant with this beer.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Jaune brillante avec une moyenne robe blanche. Larme du bl, malt lger, crales et houblon floral. En bouche cest le mme, mais peu du corps. Bonne eu rafrachissante mais rien de spciale.

ljthiessen (1175) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel with just a hint of citrus. Flavour is quite sweet, mostly caramel with some bread and bubblegum notes. A lot of flavour for the ABV, but that's not really a good thing here. Pretty disappointing, and I wasn't expecting much.

yourilevesque (1508) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Bire blanchtre aux ples reflets verdtres et maussades. Si ce navait t de la mince mousse prsence en surface, la bire ne prsente aucun signe de vie; pas mme la moindre effervescence du fond du verre qui eut t la bienvenue. Au nez, je sens du bl sr voire moisi accompagnant des armes dhumidit - tmoignage dune dure fermentation. Le dplaisir se poursuit en bouche avec ces mmes notes de pelure de banane, de bl sri et de pain mal conserv. Plutt ronde, assez effervescente et larrire-got amer et dplaisant, cette bire nest absolument pas pour moi.
