Good taste and nice aroma. The beer has some wheat floating. The after taste is refreshing and not at all pepper as advertised. Good beer on a hot day.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Hazier and darker than I last saw, bottom of an old keg? Sort of orange, little head. Aroma wheat, touch of orange. Rather heavy in the mouth with a definite bite of carbonation. Flavor had some wheat quality, but again, just too heavy. Some more orange and a bit of very faint coriander and spice flavors. Just kind of there really.

this was pretty good, lemony smell. this went down in about 5 gulps, very easy to drink, and very refreshing after outside work. wheat is almost non existant. not something i want to drink all the time, but it certainly does the job. good.

A good thirst quencher, easy to drink. Lemon aroma and flavor present though wheat character is rather subdued. Good mouthfeel, clean finish, good beer.

It's okay... gives a jumpy taste on your tounge that turns and turns again like a motor starting up. But the engine of this drink never gets you anywhere special. Kind of a disturbing light color that makes it look un-classy.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [draft - Airport Marriott - Greece, NY] Poured a cloudy yellowish color with a very thin white head that left good lacing the whole way down the glass. Strong wheaty aroma with a hint of lemon and pepper. Very crisp wheat taste mixed with the lemon I smelled and a good peppery finish that had just enough of a bite. I thought I could taste a cherry flavor on my lips from the glass.

Pours yellow, with a good head. Tastes of strong lemon, floral, and spicy...like ground white pepper. Finishes smooth and slight tangy and tart. Very nice on a 90 degree summer day.

Probably my favorite offering from Sam Adams. Pure summer. There's a tangy little zip to the taste that makes this extremely refreshing. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is go jogging in the evening when the sun is starting to go down and then cancel out all the hard work with a few of these when I'm done.

A great tasting summer beer, with a light head. An almost yellow appearance. Very crisp and fruity tasting. Good overall beer.
