3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone pint glass
From: BevMo in Mission Valley North (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $15.99 for a Summer Scene variety 12-pack
Purchased: July 26, 2013
Consumed: July 29, 2013
Poured a honey orange hazy color with two fingers of off-white head. Minimal wet spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled blueberry, grape, faint bubblegum, cherry, kiwi, honey, apple and faint banana. Basically fruity notes is what I’m saying.
Taste wasn’t quite a variety as the smell, but still flavorful. Got grape juice, blueberry, faint cotton candy, sour cherry, apple and tropical notes.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
A nice beer for the summer. Beer Advocate has it as a Hefeweizen and Rate Beer has it as a wheat ale. I think it is somewhere in between. Definitely a summer beer. I’d have it again though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle...nicely refreshing summer wheat with a rather pleasantly tart berry flavor. Beautiful rendition of ’Elder Betty’ on the label...I enjoyed looking at her while I savored her bubbly brew from the bottle that she adorned.
