COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tribute to the highly drinkable ""every day"" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat. Dry quenching finish achieved by use of the traditional sour mash process

Mine had no head at all, but was a rich full golden color; with any head at all it would have gotten a 5 on apperance. Taste is fruity and heavily scented with floral hops. I did not detect much wheat in the flavor, but some of the characteristic yeast taste that I associate with Belgian wheat ales was there. Indeed, a nice summer beer, though there are many German wheats that I would take first!

UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 (BB 8/26/03) Very fruity/hoppy nose. Notes of orange. Light smooth palate with a light bitterness. Malty (wheat) finish. Good quencher. Not as good as last years example.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Clear golden with a fluffy small white head. Decent lacing. I liked the fact that FF did not fall into the common trap of making their Summer Ale overly flowery in aroma and citrusy in flavor. Very quenching with tart finish overlaying a short hop bite. My second fav. in the FF line (ESB is 1).

Better than I thought it would be, but still behind the Pete’s and Troegs summer brews.

There was nothing that I could determine that would make this beer a summer ale. It tasted rather bland.

White foamy head, pale light color. Aroma, sour. Taste, well this might as well be a bottle of heinekin.

My favorite FF offering. A spicy, clean and refreshing brew. Great in summer or anytime.

Citrusy in aroma, same in flavor. A spiciness I can’t quite place. Light in color. Finishes clean. A good seasonal beer for the warmer months.
