COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Indian Summer is a light profile American-style wheat ale spiced with Orange Peel and Coriander. Our recipe uses a mix of wheat and pale barley. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the spices to shine through. Clean fermenting yeast produce a very dry, crisp base to further accentuate the spices. The aroma has a distinct citrus note without being overly fruity.

Liquid Sunshine V. Thanks, BitBucket! 12-oz. Pours fairly hazy light amber. Headless, laceless. Mild sweet tangy honey on the nose. Fairly mild, almost neutral mid-palate. Maybe a bit of lemon there, some honey and grass. Very, VERY understated beer.

Warm blond color ringed by head. Aroma of crisp wheat and rye, honeysuckle and light peper. Honeyed blonde amber flavors with viscous, honeyed pepper body. Sweet grass in the finish.

Fresh clean taste. Really smooth. The hints of spice are really nice.Great color. I would love to see this beer down here in the Florida Pan-handle area.

Bottle thanks to puggy!! Pours a dark, deep gold color with barely any head. I certainly can smell the coriander and orange peel along wtih the wheat and some citrus flavors. Caramel and honey notes are present as well. Flavor has some of the spices in it but instead of a nice smooth wheat flavor I get more corn than anything. Overall it is still a drinkable beer and better than I expected.

The weather hit 60 degrees today causing a minor breakout of Spring fever therefore making this delicate, crisp wheat seem rather fitting. Cloudy, golden-orange our with a medium sized white head and spotty lacing. Light malty aroma with a hint of coriander. Small citrus flavor along with a noticeable sweet honey taste finished by coriander. Lighter in body, somewhat dry and quenching. Nothing mind altering here, but a straightforward Southern American Wheat.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow that clears up as it warms. Even my aggressive pour only produced a short-lived bubbly foam that receded immediately leaving nothing at all on top. There is no lacing. Aroma is odd with some grainy wheat whiffs and a bit of fruity sweetness before the spices tingle the nose a bit. Odd nose for me. Taste has a nice zing of citrus up front with some orange peels before the sweetish wheat flavors take over in the middle with hints of bananas. The spices really come out in the finish, especially coriander, and leave a peppery spiciness on the tongue. The mouthfeel is fairly light and has plenty of carbonation despite the less than carbonated look. I’m not nearly as impressed with this one as I have been with my previous 2 LM beers (Southern Pecan and Jefferson Stout), as I’m not exactly sure what they were aiming to do style-wise. That said, it’s still fairly drinkable especially on a warm day.

Pours a rich golden color with a medium sized fluffy head. Nose is citrus and a little sour. Taste is fresh and mostly of sweet pale malt with the orange and coriander nicely understated. Some spiced beers overdo the spice, not this one, the balance is great. Finish is clean and sweat. A really refreshing brew!

12oz bottle thanks to deepsouth. Nice golden color, effervescent, bubbly but the head doesn’t last for shit. Smells like spices, almost Belgian but not quite. It tasted odd and I honestly couldn’t tell if they were shooting for a Belgian witbier or an American wheat. It was easy enough to drink but it was still confused.

Draft @ Oysterella’s in Mobile, AL. Golden pour, white head. Aroma of puffed wheat cereal. Flavor is very thirst quenching. Flavor of wheat. Well balanced. Herbal bite in the finish. A good American Wheat Ale.

Poured a lightly hazy, dark golden color with a creamy white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, light banana, coriander, and a bit of cereal. Taste of citrus fruits, tart wheat, light banana, and a bit of coriander as well
