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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Slightly hazy, deep gold color brew with a foamy head that sticks around. Aroma of citrus, wheat, yeast and some hoppy spice. Flavor is lots of wheat and lemon, with the hop spiciness on the finish. Medium bodied, but smooth on the palate. Refreshing. Not bad at all!

Bottle. Golden/amber beer with a nice white head. Wheat and light spice aroma. Wheat/malt flavor with a bit of lemony citrus. Medium-light body. Easy drinking and refreshing. LIngerign wheat, citrus, and a bit of spice.

blipp (6329) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Lemony, soapy aroma, a hint of sourness. The flavor is slightly sour lemony citrus and wet wheat. It’s drinkable, but I’d be willing to bet this bottle was a bit past its prime.

Flavor – Very nice wheat malt with a tad of hops the clove and banana flavors where great.
Palate – Great Mouthfeel, OK texture with a dry banana finish.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Hazy yellow with thin head and little apparent carbonation. Wheaty aroma with dank hop notes. Flavor is sour-wheat and dankness. Light sour-citrus finish that is rather unappealing. Not impressed with this one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to 5000: Pours a transparent bright golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of smooth mildly sweet wheat and a touch of hops. Starts with decent body and light wheaty sweetness along with a mild bittering hop balance before a smooth finish. Pretty drinkable, just not much going on here.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Pours a pale clear yellow. Not too wheaty, but I liked it overall. I would drink these again.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was tangy and faintly fruity. The flavor was tangy and a bit sour with a hint of tartness and a faint fruity undertone. Not much of a "wheat" element to this one. Medium body. Disappointing.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Tap @The Drafting Room in Springhouse. Pretty standard wheat beer, light aroma with a slight hint of citrus/lemon. A bit of a harsh aftertaste.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle. Mostly clear, filtered. Gold with a white head. Sweetened perfume and wheat nose, coriander and potpourri, artificially sweet. Light body, dissolves over the back. Lightly sweetened cream and perfumed lemon. Dull and artificial.
