Now, I know I haven't tried every beer, but this is definately my favorite thus far. Don't get me wrong, I tried alot of different beers, both low and high class, this has to be one of the best. If you're just chillin', hangin' out, this is the shit you want, WORD!

Yah i know summer is over and the 10 inches of snow here proves it.I figured it was time to buy some of these brews even though i'm not a big sammy fan.
Pale golden color,small head that faded after a short time.The aroma was wheaty and mildly fruity with maybe a light spice hint.The flavor came of as wheat and citrus with a fairly good lemon and spice coming through nicely,with a wheat lightly sour citrus after taste.Not a bad brew but it doesn't change my mind on S.A.

Good wheat beer, very refreshing lawn mower beer. I don't drink this as often now that Boulevard has Zon, but this is one even my non-beer geek friends like when I put them in the cooler.

I'm usually on the fence about Sam Adams brews. Sometimes they are suprisingly good, other times they are mundane. I had this selection a little late in the summer so maybe an Indian Summer Ale would have fared better. This wheat ale is infused with refreshing elements of lemon and spice. Yellow-orange in color. Cloudy. Smooth from start to finish with a little spicy kick in between. I like it and look forward to next summer!

This is a ok American Wheat nothing special some what bland. Lemon, wheat, and spicey flavor. Finish is clean, crisp, and watery.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Has a pale cloudy appearance and a smallish head. Interesting wheat taste here. Has a strong lemon taste with spiciness. The wheat is overpowered by these flavors. However, it was interesting enough that I have had it a few times.

Looks like a classic belgian white. Nice pale gold, diminished white frothy head. Smells like cloves, hops, lemon, and cinnamon. Tastes very unique, lemon, pepper, a little sour. Not the best I have ever had but it is quite different. Interesting to say the least.

A decent summer beverage. Wasn't outstanding in any particular area. Some light malt crispness and wheat flavor, the citric flavor wasn't really that noticable, and not much hop bitterness.

Slight aroma of lemons and spice. Mild tart lemon flavor. Slightly sour, flavor of grass, pears, and lemons. Chalky finish.
