COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
a.k.a. Chris’s Summer Delight, an unfiltered, refreshingly tart small batch beer conceived by our own Chris Haveman from 50% wheat malt and just a touch of Hersbrucker hops.

Westmeister (1728) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle $4.99. Clear golden pour with a white head. Taste is only lightly tart with some lemon rind, touch of grainy sweetness. Mild dry finish. This was certainly refreshing s close to being good, but doesn’t quite hit the mark. Quite refreshing but not anything to go nuts over.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Keg @ Washington Commons, Brooklyn. Pours hazy gold with a big white head. The nose is lightly tart sweet lemon and honey. Simple. The taste is very crisp light citrus, lemon rind. Tart. Some spring water, a bit of wheat and white grape. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, corker of a summer beer. Very easy to drink. This definitely went down well in 90 degree weather!

drjay44 (2608) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2012
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, short duration, white head, over slightly hazy dark yellow (SRM 4) body...........nose is light acid, slight lemon, hints of wheat cereal, toast.....taste is light sour, hints of citrus, finishing sour.....mouth feel light, carbonation adds fizzy qualities. This is a light refreshing beer. It meets the style, but not totally. I’d like a bit more acid kick. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

dmac (3991) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2012
22 oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads shared at the golf outing. Poured a dense gold yellow with not much carbonation and a creamy white head. Aroma of light sourness, wet malts, copper. Medium carbonation over a medium to fuller body that finishes almost syrupy. Flavor is the same ad the aroma with light sourness that turns to set malts and finishes with a metallic tinge. This needs to be thinner, more sour or both.

Clear amber yellow with a two finger head quick dissipation. Smell tart acidic, vomit. Taste crisp tart acidic, it reminds me of stomach acid...

notalush (4824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Fizzy gold with a light haze - head almost completely diminishes - nose is moderate wheat, light lactic acid, some bready/yeast notes - flavor is crisp and moderately acidic - some sour apple and light white vinegar notes - a bit of dry wheat and dusty yeast on the tail end - simple - somewhat refreshing, but there is a sharpness to the acidity on the end that makes it a touch hard to enjoy that much. (edit - second half of the bottle brings a lot more yeast into the pour, which cuts the acidity significantly - still a bit watery in flavor overall, but not too bad.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours blonde with a thick off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a light wheat and pale malt flavor that is slightly sour with a dry more bitter finish. Kind of a strange flavor.
