COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adamsģ Summer Ale is an American wheat ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body. The ale fermentation imparts a background tropical fruit note reminiscent of mangos and peaches. All of these flavors come together to create a thirst quenching, clean finishing beer perfect for those warm summer days.

I donít know why, but i intensely dislike this beer. Itís really no different from the dozens of other summer wheat brews. Maybe itís the beers omnipresence all summer long. You canít get away from it, and it always seems to show up at parties.

A crisp wheat beer with a touch of lemon and spices. Like lemonade for grownups. Refreshing and easy to drink.

A nice Hefe kind of beer. Has a citrusy taste to it, and a bit of hoppiness. Small head, nice lace on the glass. Nice for chilliní in the heat.

Honestly when I first picked this up I wasnít expecting alot even though I really enjoy their Boston Lauger. I was expecting some crap along the lines of H.C. Bergers Indego Ale, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found their Summer Ale to be a very refreshing delicious brew. I could drink hefeweizens like this all day long. A citris flavor was there, but not too prevailent as to overtake the hops. The carbonation is perfect and just as I like it in hefes. As in all Sam Adams brews...love the label!!!

Zach Diesel bought me a 6 pack of this once, there was no Bells Oberon left at the store. This beer was kinda like an Oberon Both were wheat beers with citrus. I enjoyed it all the same.
