Blue Point Brewing's Summer Ale has a delicious golden taste. In addition to traditional barley malt; a substantial portion of wheat malt is added to the mix giving this brew a unique tartness that's not found in many beers today. A small amount of lemon is added with one other "special" ingredient that all combine together to produce a light, thirst-quenching, citrus flavor microbrew enjoyed by all on a hot, Long Island Summer day.

A typical golden ale. Aroma was weak, but lemon, wheat and light malt are in there. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very subdued and a little boring. Wheat, citrus and a little tang in the front with a wierd sweet aftertaste. Not much carbonation which would have helped.

ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2008
From a bottle. Pours a light orange color. Smell and taste are pretty bland. Little lemon citrus flavor pokes through but taste more light lager-like than anything else.

dmac (5628) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2007
12 oz bottle purcahsed in a mix six from Monaghan’s. Poured a golden orange with some floating particles and a small white bubbly head. Nutty citrus aroma. Medium bodied with carbonation. Slightly malty flavor with just a touch of bitterness on the finish with lots of concentration on what was apparently missing from the flavor. Out of all the summer time bombs I tried I have to admit this was one of the best.

NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours golden in color with a good white head. The aroma is slightly sweet with a lot of citrus. The flavor is very mellow, probably from the wheat malts used with a bit of citrus. All-in-All, very good on a hot day.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of slightly earthy malt, floral hops, and yeast; similar to a white beer. Flavor is similar, but the malt is a little funky (or is that what they call "tart"?).
