This ale is light and crisp, yet retains the body and character of a microbrew.

The Summer Ale is an un-filtered wheat, similar to a Hefeweizen. The most intriguing brew to me though was the Mount Desert Island Ginger. It is a light wheat beer spiced with ginger root. Overall, Atlantic Brewing captures summertime memories with it’s unique take on those season style brews.

Not a bad summer! Honey in the taste. Light, drinkable, but nothing special.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a golden brown colored body with a one finger small white head that died within five seconds, no lacing was seen. Carbonation was seen slowly rising in columns. The smell had some grains at the center with floral grassy notes slightly in the background. The taste was balanced between the floral grassy notes and the grains. Some corn comes out, but nothing offensive. It also slightly sweetens a bit as the beer warms. On the palate, it sat about a light with some carbonation making itself known, yet it wasn’t overbearing. It was pretty drinkable, but the ABV is unknown, so not sure what to say other than sessionable by mouthfeel. Overall, this is not a bad summer beer. I think I would have this again depending upon the circumstances.

thot I had this, but no! from a bottle a little more gold than expected. smell is typical mild sterile wheat ale perfume. was expecting more bitterness than I get here, almost as refined as a wit bier. very good co2 makes it almost bubbly fruit. more astringent bitterness sets in during the session. yes, now we are approaching the wheat ale style I know. IMHO a little better than the typical wheat ale.

On tap in the tasting room. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft grain and faint hops on the nose. Grain into a faint sweetness. Crisp and easy, gentle sweetness with a touch of hops on the finish.

This was part of a sampler at Bar Harbor Brewing in downtown Bar Harbor. Pours a bit hazy, a bit of yeast and lemon on the nose. Slight bit of wheat on the palate and some yeast.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy gold with a white head. The nose is grainy with a hint of vegetals. The flavor carries that graininess forward with a dose of butter and a sharp bitterness that seems a bit out of place. The bitterness fades leaving you with a slightly oily mouthfeel and a slightly buttery finish. This brew is a lot of things, but crisp isn’t one of them. I was shocked to see this is a wheat beer. I would have guessed golden ale or bitter given the English nature of the flavor.
