3.26/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with some white foam that breaks quite quickly. Aroma subtle but what's there is grainy, bready malt and fruity esters that make me think stale cheap wine. Palate is mild and unassuming. Yeast, some apple and root cellar/vegetable notes and subtle lemon/lime on the finish. Fine example of the style but unremarkable. Pass on the lemon garnish if you want to truly taste the beer. Many people don't. Creamy but refreshing mouthfeel and a clean finish with some lingering sweetness. No clear hop flavor other than the aforementioned subtle citrus. Alberta session beer in classic form.

This beer was ok. I was expecting better from what I had heard about Wildrose. I enjoyed the character of the brewery itself, hopefully they contiue that in the new brewery! I really like the Wrasberry they had but not his one. To yeasty, not much mouthfeel for a cloudy beer. Had a strong presence of corn on the back of my mouth.

3.6/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Medium dark yet rich golden, totally hazed, it looks to have good carbonation as some bubbles are still visible at the edge of the glass. Good-size, stark white head with nice retention & some okay lace.

S: Fairly clean US style wheat beer. Hint of grain, hint of bready yeast, faint bit of softly lemony twang from hops and/or yeast. Good strength & reasonably nice.

T: Usual wheat beer for this hemisphere. A bit grainy, a bit bready, a really slight bit of sweetness with perhaps a pinch of light crystal (perhaps not), bright – but not overly potent – hops, and a very slight & soft lemony twang at the edge.

M: Slightly over medium body with moderate and slightly under-matched carbonation. Soft up front, but a touch of an edge of tartness at the back gives it some quench. Refreshing.

D: Standard, but a quite fine rendition. This is what you would expect when ordering a wheat beer in pretty much any brewpub in North America. Well done and highly drinkable.

Nice cloudy unfiltered light amber colour. Smell has some fruity notes but nothing outstanding. This is the part the shocked me it feels creamy in the mouth and the taste has hints of apricot. I really enjoyed the flavours and feel of the beer. It has not bitter flavour and is a smooth easy drink.

3.88/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours a foggy straw yellow with a finger width of bubbly white head.

Smell- Barley, malts, citrus, grainy/grassy.

Taste- Bready malts and barley with a grassy finish. Light wheat flavours. Mild flavours overall.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light carbonation. Smooth and light creaminess to the body.

Overall- A refreshing and light wheat ale by Wild Rose. Crisp, clean flavours and a surprisingly smooth mouthfeel makes this an easy summer session brew.
