3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2010 Sampled 6/4/2010. This wheat ale pours a light gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy and cereal, with citrus and spices. A medium to light bodied wheat ale. The malts are cereal, grainy and slightly sweet. The hops are floral and spicy. Hint of lemon and citrus. Lively carbonation. A nice summer beer, light and refreshing yet has some flavor going on. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
Med gold color, small head. Lightly malted, lightly hopped. Distinct kind of overpowering lemony taste. Light refreshing taste, not a lot of beer taste (hops and malts). Finish is clean. Aftertaste is lemony.

Refreshing, fruity, and a strange wheat taste. A very good hot weather beer. An average beer other times. The beer snobs might not but I like Sam Adams, and this isnt a bad offering from them.

Didn’t get the overtones of citrus zest that were mentioned on the label, but this is a very wheaty ale. Very refreshing hot weather brew and I can see where it gets its name.

Not bad, but not enough of the "Citrus notes" in my bottles. Also aroma was weak---all in all an average beer, and typical of Boston Beer Co.’s erratic quality.

Great summertime back porch beer. Very fruity, orange and lemon. Don’t taste the pepper though.

Smells like bread and lemon, mostly yeast taste with faint lemon. Pretty golden/orange color with streams of bubbles.

Very much a wit-style beer, with wheat and citrus at the fore of both flavor and taste. Simple and easy drinking beer, both of which I assume are in keeping with the goal.
