The Summer Ale is an un-filtered wheat, similar to a Hefeweizen.
The most intriguing brew to me though was the Mount Desert Island Ginger. It is a light wheat beer spiced with ginger root.
Overall, Atlantic Brewing captures summertime memories with it’s unique take on those season style brews.
Tastes like a wheat, light pilsner. It is a quality beer, just not my style. Ktwse (4822) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Pours clear golden amber with low white head. Aroma of malt, light citrus, hints of honey. Taste is honey sweet with light fruit finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Not a bad summer! Honey in the taste. Light, drinkable, but nothing special. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2014
draft in ba haba, very light, good outside in the sun, nothing offensive, well nothing really at all, great for on the deck. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a golden brown colored body with a one finger small white head that died within five seconds, no lacing was seen. Carbonation was seen slowly rising in columns.
The smell had some grains at the center with floral grassy notes slightly in the background.
The taste was balanced between the floral grassy notes and the grains. Some corn comes out, but nothing offensive. It also slightly sweetens a bit as the beer warms.
On the palate, it sat about a light with some carbonation making itself known, yet it wasn’t overbearing. It was pretty drinkable, but the ABV is unknown, so not sure what to say other than sessionable by mouthfeel.
Overall, this is not a bad summer beer. I think I would have this again depending upon the circumstances.

pours hazy light yellow with a decetn white cap, some retention and lacing. soapy and herbal, minerals and metal, wheat and its light acidity, salty notes, faint maltiness and cereals, floralness, hint of caramel. lively carbonation, light body, dry and short citrusy-herbal finish. DP.

Moderate wheat and light grain aroma. Clear golden color with a lot of carbonation. Large white head. Mild bitter beginning with a wheat flavor finish. cheap (5798) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2013
thot I had this, but no! from a bottle a little more gold than expected. smell is typical mild sterile wheat ale perfume. was expecting more bitterness than I get here, almost as refined as a wit bier. very good co2 makes it almost bubbly fruit. more astringent bitterness sets in during the session. yes, now we are approaching the wheat ale style I know. IMHO a little better than the typical wheat ale. j12601 (11119) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap in the tasting room. Pours a clear gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft grain and faint hops on the nose. Grain into a faint sweetness. Crisp and easy, gentle sweetness with a touch of hops on the finish. BrettTaylor (773) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
This was part of a sampler at Bar Harbor Brewing in downtown Bar Harbor. Pours a bit hazy, a bit of yeast and lemon on the nose. Slight bit of wheat on the palate and some yeast.
