COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is not just your average summer seasonal. This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.

Bottle. Wheaty aroma mixed with somewhat of a soft mango note. Very light bodied with wheat being the main flavor through. Subtle hints at mango and light malts run throughout. Very clean, very crisp, very short, and very wheaty finish. Perfect for summer, but not all that exciting.

Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is a bit spicy but is mainly fruity/orange. Flavor is pretty crisp and wheaty, not too much on the spice side.

Deep gold with 1" white head, good amount of lacing. Aroma is floral, herbal, bready. Taste is smooth maltiness, bready, some minor sour notes, good moderately bitter finish. Crisp refreshing summer beverage.

cheap (3970) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 Looks like any other ubiquitous pale yellow american beer. Just a little hazy. Smells fairly good, without any negative connotations. Decent carbonation on the palate. First taste is sort of alky on the impact. Fairly bitter initial taste bud sensations. Has an interesting orange peel hint in the background. Short biting bitter finish. Not quite what I was expecting in a wheat beer.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2008
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a light and slightly hazy gold,with as small white head and light lacing. Nose of grapefruit and wheat, with a hint of hops. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is more citrus than wheat, and the finish is dry. Easy to drink

Ron (2454) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pale yellow gold color, medium sized fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Wheat malt and lemon flavor. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This was very refreshing after finishing the yardwork.

A wierd and middle of the road wheat ale. This is the style of wheat beer I don’t like. Sweet and with a very floral aroma. Pour was a nice medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was like eating puree’d roses and sugar water. It was a little dry in the aftertaste which helped. All in all very average.
