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.

This wheat ale has a deep golden color with amber undertones. the lack of head on the brew was disapointing. the aroma was lemony sweet and malty as was the flavor. the finish was slightly dry and hoppy.

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.

Didnít 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.ís erratic quality.
