3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is like a weak banana smoothie at first, but barley and something strange quickly show up. With swirling, very weak notes of sulfur and some crushed nettles show up. The taste is malt heavy and fairly bland. Moderate bitterness, Good mouthfeel. Finish length is average. This isn’t a bad beer...just really forgettable and not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with two fingers of off white head and good lacing. The aroma has some spice and barnyard as well as lemon. Taste is initially sweet with some of the lemon character coming through, followed by barnyard and mild spiciness. Low bitterness on the back end that disappears as the beer finishes dry. Mouthfeel is crisp and semi creamy with a light/medium body and moderate carbonation. A easy drinker with a sweet but dry profile that is nice in a session ale. Not overly complex but tasty.

I’m excited about this new series from Summit, but this isn’t the best start. Tried this one on tap at Sea Salt.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with a solid off-white head. Aroma of mild dark fruit, grapefruit and some floral hops. Flavor is really good for such a low ABV. Juicy, well-balanced dark fruit, mild malt sweetness and a nice citrus bite from the hops. Eminently drinkable. One of my favorite Summit beers so far.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to rocks glass samplers with a clear, light golden color, and a modest amount of white, bubbly head foam. Lightly sweet, light lemon, just a touch of banana detected, with floral and spice hints, and slight tartness. Moderately bitter, and light bodied. A quaffably sound brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, big thanks to Caleb! Clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, slight watery grains, hints of lemon, slight yeast notes, touch of grass, eh. Taste is a mix of watery grain, biscuit, bread, very slight banana, clove, slight yeast, finishing watery, slightly dry, yeasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, plain appearance. Moderate body, a bit silky, a bit of hopped tingle. Flavors are solid and drinkable; they may be right in claiming that it is somewhat distinctive. Notes of apple, caraway, caramel, grapefruit, vanilla. Reasonably good. Bottle.
