From Jan. of 2011 - somehow my review got moved from here to another YB Brew entry...


This is the third - and final :( - of my three beers brought to me from Newfoundland by cbjmacdon.

First of all, I love the bottle... who wouldn't get excited by a one-litre swing-top? The beer is a bit of a cloudy, golden yellow. The head is pretty decent (more than a finger), and some of it stays around the top and sticks to the sides (spottily) on the way down.

There is lemon in the scent as well as a faint whiff of papaya or mango (something tropical anyway). A bit of spice.

Wow... pretty fruity for a "plain" wheat ale. Lots of lemon, and the mango/papaya/tropical fruit come out behind its initial punch, dominating the rest of the sip's flavour and aftertaste. The spice in the smell isn't really there in the taste, which I think is fine given how the rest of it tastes.

The "afterfeel" could have you thinking it was a little flat, but another sip reminds you that the carbonation is fine. There is a bit of a tingle from the carbonation at the start of each sip, and that's it. It's light (could be a little heavier/fuller), smooth, with a low-to-mid body that has a slightly sticky finish, yet leaves your mouth refreshed.

Good stuff! I didn't know what to expect, but this beer left me with a great first impression of the Yellow Belly Brewery in Newfoundland.

A: Golden yellow, white head, some retention & lacing (I expect more from a wheat).

S: Lemon, biscuity malt and hints of tropical fruit.

T: Mango, papaya, biscuity malt, light spiciness, modest bitterness, hints of fruity esters from the yeast.

M: Moderate body is very smooth, carbonation is pleasantly on the lower side of moderate.

D: Incredibly drinkable.

This is probably the best American Wheat I've had.
