COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I thought this beer smelled and tasted delicious, and this was with a stuffy nose. It was subtly fruity and a nice smooth blond tasting brew. Well done Long Island.

Better than most summer ales. Aroma is of thier toasted lager- only subdued slightly. Color is very pale and crystal clear. Nice hoppy and malty balance. Quite bitter for most summer ales which usually skimp on the hoppiness. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Malty wheat aroma, light, no roasty notes, light lemon. Pours a clear golden color. Frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Sweet/sour taste - citrus/lemon notes with the faintest amount of hop bitterness. Lively carbonation on the tongue. Sweet sour wheat & lemon finish. Iím not a huge BluePoint fan but I liked this beer more than I expected to. It is one of my favorite summer ales

JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Appearance: clear honey gold, one-finger white head, substantial lacing. Aroma: toasted wheat bread with honey butter, lemon zest and some spices. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with good grainy/bready notes, citrus, and a little hoppy spice. Finish: lingering sweet notes of wheat toast. Notes: Seemed like a great summer drinking session beer to me. I quite liked the flavors. Similar to (but with less citrus and hops than) the Great Lakes Oberon.

Bottle. I enjoyed one of these while working in my warehouse yesterday. Itís subtle malt flavor with nuances of lemon and grain. It went down easy and I thought I could handle a few more in the recent warm weather.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2010
On tap - Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md. Hazy golden pour w/a moderate white head. Aromas of wheat & yeast. Smooth easy drinking summer brew, flavors of yeast, a little citrus, very "witbierish". Not a complex, epic brew, but it is a good example of this style. If you just want something to knock back a few before/with dinner w/o getting too filled up or buzzed, this is a good choice. Moderate dry finish.

I like this beer. I brought it from home to some freinds in Philly, they werent impressed. I like it beacuse I could put it down quick and donít have a problem drinking it all night. A little light, but quite alright.
