On tap at Gig’s: A hazey pale straw color with a puffy cap. Aroma is intense grapefruit-citrus with bisquity malts in the background. Flavour has big PacNW hopping (Greapefruit/citrus) balances with dry biscuity wheat malts, light fruity esters.Dry crisp finish with a nice hop bite. This is an interesting mutation of a Berliner weiss with PacNW pale ale - pale ale fruity eaters with weiss dryness and APA citrus - nice sipping ale

Pours quite hazy straw colour, with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy and little acetaldehyde nose. Medium body, high carbonation, thin texture. Taste is moderate bitter, citrusy, a bit watery. Little acidity.

Franckg (1814) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
Canette. Robe jaune pâle et légèrement trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de citron frais, tangerine, kiwi et grains maltés. En bouche, citron, tangerine, pamplemousse jaune, grains maltés, mangue, pelures d’ananas. Texture fraîche et légère, corps mince. Excellente session pale ale.

BreWedge (550) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 14, 2017
473 ml can. Pours a very pale yellow, slight haze, huge pillowy white head. Aromas are fruit forward (pear, citrus). Tastes are light citrus (grapefruit) with only a lightly tart overtone. Light body, crisp, medium tart finish. Not bad but is almost like a dry radler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Sampled at the Craft Beer fest in Ottawa, with Chopz. Has a hazy pale golden appearance. Has aromas of grassy hops, lemons. Has a tangy mouthfeel. Flavours are very tarty and some citrus hops as well as some malty notes. Full bodied and great retention. Nice crispy bitterness.

Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2017
Keg at Ghost Whale. It pours lightly hazy golden with a thick white head. The aroma is really fresh, vibrant, tropical fruits, yellow plum, grapefruit and white bread. The taste is crisp, clean, moderate bitterness, grapefruit, lemon, tropical action and white bread with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and quite fresh. Pretty decent.
