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.
