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.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. Enjoy by 9.17.12 printed on label. The pour is a light haze golden copper, with a one inch slightly dirty white head. That head falls slow and rocky. The aroma is wheat grain, grass, and lemon citrus. The taste is the grain of the wheat, slightly tart lemon, and finishes with grass and lemon fruit. The palate is light to medium bodied, with soft carbonation, and the mild tart finish. Touch of diacetyl dirtiness present in the long aftertaste. More or less a wheat bear with a touch of tartness. Thanks Brandon.

Had this at a little mini tasting. I don’t remember much about it which isn’t a good or bad thing.

This is much better than I thought it was going to be. Never been much of a full sail person, but this was impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

s, bit of moist bread, and something else I really couldn’t determine. Flavor was far from great, but it was adequate. A tart presence throughout, but not all that strong. Wheat and lemon, with a good dose of minerals and salt. Some seltzer like elements. Fine for a summer time beer.

scoth (508) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours clear golden with a medium white head, good retention, fine lacing. Aromas of malt, citrus, grass, and biscuit. Light body, very tart, velvety body. Medium sweet, fairly strong sour, little bitterness in the finish. A good example of the style, but I would still enjoy more sourness.

Lukaduke (2222) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a light blonde color with a couple fingers of fizzy foam. Subtle nose that mimics mineral water, seltzer some champagne yeast character adds a bit of breadiness and wet cork. Palate follows with nice bubbly effervescent mouthfeel but very subtle on flavor. Kind of taste like a cheap brut with a slice of lemon. Not bad just not very tart or flavorful... actually tasted great with the addition of some Corsair Gin and a touch of cranberry liquor.

Yellow with a small pale head and a noticeable carbonation. Aroma is wet hay, biscuit, sourdough. Light bodied, subtle sourness, short finish. Taste is wheat, sourdough. Meh

Slipstream (2030) - USA - FEB 22, 2014
Unexpectedly found on tap at the Greenwich Village Bistro. This is a nice surprise from full Sail. Light sour apple and chablis aroma. The taste is along the same lines - green apple, sorghum, wheat. Good Berliner.

chuckstout (255) - Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Sweet tangy aromas. Pours a brilliant golden with a dense thin white head decent lacing. Refreshing soft with a touch lemon, grass and tang/tart in the back end wish this was in cans during the summer

Draft at Mudville 9 NYC. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice wheaty flavor of pine, salt and lemon. Decent easy drinking beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bomber. Appearance: small white head that diminishes quickly, cloudy, straw color, ok lacing. Aroma: yeasty, pear, apple, bread, vinegar. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, light fruity texture. Taste: fruity sweetness, tart throughout taste. Overall, refreshing on a hot day maybe, but nothing I would pick up again. Almost tasted like a soft pear cider.
