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.

BillKismet (3334) - 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.

Pours a pale clear yellow. Not too wheaty, but I liked it overall. I would drink these again.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - 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 (8055) - 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.

jredmond (5352) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours pale gold, with a slight haze to it. Aroma is light coriander. The taste is smooth, refreshing, but not much flavor.

Smells like grass, but in a tolerable way. Really this was pretty good. Not too wheaty a good light clean and crisp beer. Session-style.
