2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draft @ ME Brewers’ Guild Fest) I didn’t take many notes on this...Flat-tasting, perhaps fruitiness and yeast. Not sure the current dubbel classification is accurate.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a big fluffy whit head leaving big lacing. Nose is lemon grass - no doubt. Palate is light medium body with a light wheat touch and a complex bitterness not entirely hops. A different and welcome take on a summer ale. As has been mentioned, renamed "Summer

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Newly release can, now named Summer Swelter but with the same designed can. Pours a hazy blonde color with a three finger fizzy head. On the nose its got lime, spearmint, hay and bubblegum. The palate is bright with lots of lemon lime and a touch of arugula bitterness. Interesting beer with lots of limey notes that being a lime fan I kind of like... the linger leaves a bit to be desired but Id take this over many other options in the lime category.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours gold into a shaker. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Lemon/lime aromas. Crisp with sour lime front to back with a lasting bitter lemon pith finish. Little too much on the citrus...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Bought a six pack in a grocery store in Rangeley Maine while on vacation. Pours a bright golden color with a lot of floaties. Pour netted a one finger white frothy head that receded quicly. Citrus heavy aroma with lots of lemon and lime. Some grain scent as well. Citrus hop flavor dominated by lime. Secondary wheat flavors. A bit light in body with good carbonation. Very much an easy drinking summer beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
gave this beer a second chance and won’t give it a third. flat, languid, unexciting. i suppose there’s a bit of citrusness in there that is something positive. overall, however, boring as hell.
