Beer added by: IronDjinn on 08-04-2003

A special blend of 50% wheat malt and 50% barley gives this unique unfiltered ale a distinctive hazy, golden colour and a fresh tangy character. The choice is clear. The beer isn't.

I have a soft spot in my heart for this brew, which is one of Wild Rose's longest running beers. I first had this at the now defunct Barley Mill south location prior to a ski run to Fernie. This beer is a great package - hazy, grainy, grassy and of course, Alberta wheat. I love the current packaging - any beer with a Mel Torme buffalo is a winner in my books.

Poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Cloudy yellow, with some sediment. Head is foamy and fades fast with some lacing.
Smell: Wheat and yeast.
Taste: Very, very smooth. Creamy wheat with light citrus on the finish. Coats your mouth, but no intense flavours.
Overall: Highly drinkable and enjoyable. Not super complex, but still tasty.

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.
