COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hazy and golden in color, this brew is a fresh twist on the popular Hefeweizen style. Eureka and Lisbon lemons, from three growing regions in California, balance out the wheat malt character, resulting in a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with subtle lemon flavor. Cheers!

Bottle->shaker. Hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is faint yeast, wheat, and citrus. Taste is same, but quite dull. Overall weak.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The lemon is noticeable, but it comes across sweet. Slight dough in the nose, making it hard to smell anything else. The flavor is dusty wheat beer, very little character.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 This twisted hefeweizen has a fruity, mainly lemony, aroma, but with an unfortunate hint of old canned fruit. Similarly, the flavor is fruity with some lemon, as expected, but with a vague impression of old canned fruits and ripe bananas. No sign of hops in this mildly sweet brew. O: Not a beer style I’d seek out but even so, disappointing.

Sloghtly stale flavor, with a bit of yeast in te background. Dirty SA finish without much to get excited about. Ok, but not thrilled about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Similar to the summer ale jsut a little more wheat in there. Slight citrus soapy taste at first. Decent brew nothing great nothing bad had it a couple times enjoyed it.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Another citrus summer beer from Sam Adams. This one is significantly more wheat than it’s cousin the Summer Ale. Also it has a significant amount of yeast sediment which some may find unpalatable although not as much as some of the stricter yeast heavy German styles.

AndresTM (306) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 31, 2012
The lemon makes makes it feel almost like some sort of perfumated soap/detergent. Weak, undercarbonated palate. Little harmony between the hops and the wheat/yeast.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - AUG 28, 2012
A zesty wheat beer that is pretty much like the others. Thickly hazy orange color capped with white foam. Tangy orange-marmelade nose, juicy navel orange taste, and virtually no bitterness to speak of. Ends sweet and wet. I suspect they mailed this one in to please a certain Blue Moon-swilling demogaphic. Bidness!

bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Lemon is clearly pleasant in the aroma along with some mild wheat. The flavor is sweet, citrusy and rather bland. It’s light bodied and refreshing in the summer, but offers little more to recommend it. Decent.
