Poured from 22oz bomber - Nothing too offensive about this, but a distracting yeastiness lingers on the tongue. Pleasant enough for a hot, summer day, but nothing exceptional here.

Pending a better offer, this is the beer if Summer. Eager to please, easy to spend time with, and easily forgotten once the leaves change color.

Very average wheat beer on the smell and appearance. The texture and the taste however where a bit strange. Slick mouth feel accompanied by some buttery diacetyl notes that I couldn’t ignore. Otherwise standard wheat beer with some lemony citrus notes. Tried twice on draft this month and both times could not get over the buttery flavor and feel. Unfortunate as I usually can rely on Sam Adams for a decent pint when I end up stuck in a chain restaurant with poor tap selection. Would rather have the lager next time.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to Samuel Adams tulip glass. Smells sour, lots of wheat notes with hints of citrus and lemon. Taste is lemony and refreshing yet sour. Seems like they wanted to go for a fruit beer without the overwhelming fruit taste. Finishes nicely with a little carbonated bite at the end.

On tap in McFadden’s NYC. Light hazy golden colour. Slightly grainy, light slightly fruity hop flavour, typical wheat sweetish finish. Something a bit artificial about the fruity flavour.

Pours hazy golden with minimal head. Aroma of grain , bread, slight lemony nose. Taste is very weizen without the banana and bubblegum . Finish is chalky dry and abrupt. So-so.

Looks a lot like a Shock Top or a Blue Moon. Much milder taste though. Very good. No strong after taste. Would drink again.

I purchased a 6 pack at LCBO, bit of a let down. The beer was ok in a refreshing way on a summer hot day obviously being a summer Ale, but not enough taste there for my liking. I would not buy a 6 pack again, doesn’t have the taste punch I would look for in a beer.
