  • Style: Traditional Ale
  • Taste: Tangy banana wheat malt cream-fizzy straightforward mildly rough finish
  • Where I got it : Legacy Liquor / Vancouver
  • How much: $4.90 CAD (after 10% off) – 330ml, December 2015

  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: sure

Visual: Pours translucent yellow-orange with a decent sized dissipating head, a thin layer of retention, clusters of very active streams.

Nose: sweet floral barley malt, chamomile, a bit of pukiness (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: crisp, bubbly-fizzy, dull entry

Mid-palate: banana citrusy wheat malt, tangy (lvl-6-sweetess), background light sour pukey, oat malt cream-fizzy

Finish: banana wheat malt exhale, dryish wheat malt light palate rough finish

Summary: Predominantly a wheat malty flavour profile with barley-buckwheat sweetness and some oaty texture. Texturally it’s satisfying, tastewise and depth could use a bit more punch. Quite drinkable, but wouldn’t give it a gold.
