COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Indian Summer is a light profile American-style wheat ale spiced with Orange Peel and Coriander. Our recipe uses a mix of wheat and pale barley. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the spices to shine through. Clean fermenting yeast produce a very dry, crisp base to further accentuate the spices. The aroma has a distinct citrus note without being overly fruity.

Pours clear dark gold with no head. The aroma is sweet malts, apple and more modest levels of malty and undiscernibly sweetness. The taste is much the same with apple and malt sweetness. It ends with the novel addition of another layer of sweetness.

Bottle. Pours yellow. Nose is nutty, toasty, bread, biscuity and light caramel. Flavor is mild nuts, light toast, light caramel. Not much spice. Oddly similar to their Southern Pecan beer.

12 oz bottle courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks. Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is soft with spices of clove, cumin, a bit of orange peel and musty malts. The flavor is dominated by the spices to quite nice effect, the coriander is really all I taste. The mouthfeel was thin and the carbonation was too prickly. The finish was short and dry. Overall: A very interesting beer. More like an experimental home-brew, but quite enjoyable.

Bottle Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. The head leaves quickly. Has a musty aroma of spices, cloves, and malts. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor is fresh. Not real deep. Has a light body. The texture is watery. Has an okay finish with a light aftertaste. This is not bad and is refreshing but is a touch plain.

On tap at Nashville’s Music City Brew Festival. I am not one for wheat beers, but can respect most of them as being solid brews, but this one just wasn’t. The wheat character was very strange and not refreshing. Don’t know how to describe it other than, there a simply much better wheats out there.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bourbon House in Nola. Hazy gold color with white head. Nose is very malty for a wheat ale. Flavor is not as malty as I expected. A bit spiced, but not overly so...also a nutty flavor.

2.6
RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2009
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a bright gold with just a touch of haze. Carbonation is bubbly but no head develops. Aroma is a mildly sweet grain scent. Taste is light and crisp. It starts with a light body that goes down crisp. Finish is sweet with a wheat like grain taste then a coriander and hop spice comes in ending with a hint of bitterness. Overall its not bad but not a style I like.

3.2
Headbanger (3990) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2009
12oz bottle 5/20/09 (Courtesy of garmonbozia)Pours a slight hazy golden body with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of wheat, grains, spices, and slight orange. Taste of the same with some coriander coming through. This light bodied brew is very well balanced and quite refreshing.
