COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewmaster’s goal: the perfect ale for summertime quaffing, nothing more. Breck Brew’s SummerBright is the result. The craftsman’s touch combines white wheat, two row pale and munich malt with the pacific northwest’s most intriguing hops to create a bright, clean ale ideal for picnicking, evenings on the screen porch and enjoying the whims of the summer breeze. Aged 14 weeks in a Cabernet Wine Barrel

Pours lighter orange golden without much of a head. Aroma is the best part bringing delicate fruity grape notes and refreshing lightly sweet wheat malts. Body is light and even somewhat crisp. Flavor is a bit fruity from the grapes which gets better with the temp going up.

Served on draft at Whole Foods Market Glen Allen, VA. Pours a hazy amber color with a large creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale wheat malts and faint wine notes. The taste is pale wheat, grapes, wine, Concord grape juice, stone fruits. Medium bodied. Decent.

Thanks to Will for popping this open on a COLD Colorado night. Pours golden, a little head.. slight citrus aroma. Overall, very light mouthfeel, and I just want to get something else out of it. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but not something that is worth a limited bottle count.

First thing that I notice is a really, really wonderful mouthfeel. The flavors are filled out nicely by the aging.

onceblind (3934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2011
On tap during Great COntenders. Listed as "Summer Cab Ride". Clear light gold with a thin fizzy head. Interesting aroma of candied ginger, oak, white wine, and a saison like funk. Taste was bright and lightly grapey, with lots of oak and pale malt, mild bitter hops. Pretty fine and dandy without leaning too much on the barrel aging.

From the Jug at Breckenridge Brewery Bar-B-Que, 471 Kalamath Street Denver 16/09/2010 Floral aroma. Light golden coloured a little hazy in appearance and strong in alcohol. Smooth on the palate with a slightly dry oaked finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Sampled at the brewery. Hazy straw colored pour with a 1/2 inch ivory head that faded but left clumps inside the glass. Aroma is quite fruity with lemon, citrus, and grape elements. Light and refreshing, this is definitely sessionsble and shows some wheaty elements along with grape and cab influence in the aftertaste. Not bad.
