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.

On tap, Green Dragon, Portland. Cloudy yellow, with a nice white head. Smells tart, lemony, with a wee bit of cheesy funk in the background. Taste is tart, citrusy, and lightly toasty as it warms.

Bottle; dark gold color with a white head. Aroma was tart and funky; wheaty. Flavor was not great. Yeasty and tarty. Had better of the style.

Bomber to tulip (shared by Brigadier). Looks good for the style; transparent golden light orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells lightly tart, wheaty, and biscuity. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay, but mild for the style.

Beerandhockey8 (228) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 13, 2013
From 22oz bottle to chalice (closest thing I had to a bowl). Pour isabright yellow, thin white head that was very active and fizzy. Nose is almost non existent; bread, nut, light malt, even lighter hop notes. Taste is very light, mostly sweet. High carbonation that’s comparable to champagne. See what they’re going for here, not my style however.

Pours yellow with no head. Aroma of apples, funky malt, lacto. Taste is like an old malt note even though this Is fresh, apples and tart sour wheat. Very off, just strange.

tectactoe (1855) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Translucent golden color, barely any head. Aroma is.... Unexpected. Damp and grainy, muddled and misty with very light lemon. Taste is also grainy and kind of lager-like. Like a Budweiser with some extra grains and a lemon squeezed in. Forgettable, and not very good.

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Courtesy of 5000 via trade Bottle: The aroma consists of light grain, wheat, grass, and the faintest hint of lemon. It pours a transparent dull gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with light wheat, grain, and grass. The finish has a touch of lemon. It?s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it comes across as a lightly sour Pale Lager.

Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Tartness is mild but somehow a little off.

rougeau13 (2002) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Clear golden with a short-lived white head. Aroma of funk, grain, apricot. Mildly tart flavor and grainy. Light bodied, quite dry. Not bad, but it’s pretty mild all around.

daknole (9101) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Light orange colored pour with a white head. Lots of fruity notes, not much tartness. Peaches, apricots, grain, honey. This is more of a wheat beer than Berliner. Damn.
