Pale yellow color with a medium head. Bready, wheaty aroma. Kind of a honey and wheat flavor. Dry finish.

Tasted at Stanley’s Beer and Bacon Fest - May 17th, 2014 during Art-A-Whirl in Northeast. Notes were a bit light.

Tap in a pint glass at Maxwell’s. Light golden color and a little bit of head. Taste is the opposite of complex. Minor hop flavor but mostly a forgettable taste. I suppose it fits the summer easy to drink requirement but not a lot going on here. I think Summit achieved what they were striving for but they weren’t exactly reaching for the stars. Meh.

12 oz. can thanks to Skyview for this. Slightly hazy gold color with a fluffy soapy white head. Active carbonation. Aroma is light grain, citrus and wheat. A mild earthy note when warm.

Flavor is much of the same. Grain, crackers and a touch of earthy, grassy hops. Real light in body with a clean, short finish. It does have a light effervescent mouthfeel from the carbonation. Very easy to drink and since it is now offered in cans, it’s a brew you can take to a local BBQ or summer party.

Not what I was expecting. Nice yellow body, good carbonation. Aroma is hoppy with hints of dough. Taste is hops with hints of pine, much like a milder IPA, than what I'd thought. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale yellow pour with a small head. Fruity, malty aroma. Taste is crisp and sharp on the tongue. Nice finish.

Hazy yellwo pour slight egg white head good retention. Aroma of soft dough orange blossoms. Tastes very yeasty acidic. Significant bitter vegetables, perfume flavors lemons. Offers plenty for a summer ale.

Chudwick (2094) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 28, 2013
12oz bottle from variety pack - pours unfiltered straw with white head and decent lacing. Nose smells of the weeds I kill routinely in my front yard. Flavor adds light caramel and floral hops with a citric aftertaste. For a style I abhor, this is inoffensive. fairly sweet with a light bitterness kick.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of bread, caramel and light biscuit. Flavor of light lemon and sweet malt with some bitterness at the finish.

Odd. There is no elegant fruit or floral aroma here - instead, it’s earthy, funky, sour lemon zest stuff. Taste, on the other hand - is more subdued; certainly bready, though I would not characterize it as "toasted malt." Seems like a pedestrian wheat, if I had to guess. Has a sharp bite in the finish. Lacing is probably its best attribute. Saving the rest of my bottle for later; drinkable, but likely will not get this again.
