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.

bierkoning (11223) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. dark amber color. Malt and plums in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with plums, appelmoes and hints of spices. Caramel. Nothing special.

HighlanderOne (1079) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Poured from can. Aroma of burnt caramel and vanilla. Solid amber. Caramel and vanilla dominate flavor, along with banana, citrus and a hint of pepper. Slightly sour. Not a lot of carbonation. Decent, but I think it used to be better.

Very nice easy drinking copper colored ale. A rather unexpected but welcomed caramelish sweetness on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scotty001 (386) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Poured deep reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, biscuit, liquorice. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, lightly bitter. Quite medicinal.

tricksta_p (2091) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 On tap at In De Buurt, Zwolle. Aroma of vanilla, malt, caramel, herbal notes, a bit creamy. Flavour is medium sweet. Too thin, not good. Nasty herbal vanilla beer, a big disappointment.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark gold with a thin white head. Hints of cinnamon? Weird for a summer beer. Lightly fruity and sweet with an overbearing hint of cinnamon throughout. Confusing.

Nephilium (1517) - Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of citrus and cinnamon. Pours a very hazy (almost opaque) dark amber with a thin white head. The sweetness continues in the flavor, with a touch of orange and some lingering cinnamon in the finish. Not bad, but too sweet for my tastes, and a bit too heavy bodied for a summer sipper.

Oldschool_Mike (186) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear copper colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Taste is caramel with some sweet malt. Nice beer.
