Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazy yellow color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, wheat and spices. Light body with flavors of zesty citrus, coriander, wheat and malt. The finish is fruity with a short sweet aftertaste. Decent overall. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2008
On tap at ROB. Murky yellow-brown body, thin off-white head. I could have mistaken it for urine if the contents smelled differently. Tangy body with bready wheat and strong coriander notes. Sweet and estery. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2007
I had the Summer Zest, and I don’t know if it was the smoke, soapy glass or what but this was hard to smell. The cloudy yellow pour had a light citrus wheat aroma. It was the best beer that day for me, tasting of banana, wheat and spice with a smooth finish. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
As "Summer Zest" at MBG 06. Orange peel / yeast aroma - nice. Cloudy yellow, small white head. Real nice "zesty taste - perfume, floral, yeast, orange peel, spicy - wow, a nice change of pace at the fest and very quenching. Almost like a Fantome or something similar. A really nice beer. drinkallday (20) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2006
On tap at R.O.B. Nice yeasty-yellow color and good spicy aromas. Flavorful ale with hints of lemongrass, orange peel, and wheat. Good beer.

On tap at the Royal Oak Brew Pub. On the board as the "Summer Zest" beer listed @ 5% abv. Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of spices, bananas, and light lemons. Tastes of wheat, spices, bananans, and light bubble gum. Lacing left on the glass. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Lemon citrus, herbal aroma is lightly spicy. Opaque yellow straw-coloured body with low, white, fizzy head that recedes to partial cover and ring with some patchy lacing. Lightly tart wheat with a lemony character and gentle herbal spiciness is subdued but enjoyable. Medium-light body and creamy mouthfeel with fair carbonation that seems a bit low for the style. Sampled at the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival 2005.

Attrayante couleur jaune foncée, apparence pleinement opaque. Généreuse mousse blanche adhérant bien à la paroi du verre. Agréables arômes, évidences de blé, beaucoup de blé ainsi qu’une intéressante balance des composantes habituelles…bananes, citrons, zeste de doux agrumes et épices style gingembre. Passablement mince en bouche, faiblement pétillante. Satisfaisante et rafraîchissante. Michigan brewer’s fest, Ypsilanti, Michigan, Juillet 2005.

Good-looking cloudy golden, white cover has adequate lacing. Indeed zesty, smelling a ripe orange skin, lightly bitter at that and rather floral. Fruity palate, bitter and zesty, curacao reminiscent. Dry altogether, slightly plasticy almost. Heavy carbonation, firm light-medium body. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Hazy orange/yellow with a medium white head. A light aroma but with everything there as to be expected for a wit: Corinader, yeast, orange. All the elements are there in the taste. An intoxicating beverage, I would like more as it is enticing.
