pours orange/copper in color with a white head. fruity aroma and flavor. citrous accents with a bitter finish. refreshing and makes a decent summer beer. MrBunn (2807) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2005
Nice and refreshing summer wheat type brew. Citrus smells up front that turn into the first taste that develops and then gives way to a wheat like aftertaste that is a bit too dominant in my opinion and holds this beer back from being a great beer. Still, it is good enough that I wouldn’t hesitate to replenish my supply when this runs out. ABUSEDGOAT (2729) - California, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Yellow body, lemony aroma. Very drinkable, but lacks complexity and is watery. DougiePhiTau (99) - USA - APR 5, 2005
Cloudy color some spicies and fruit notes a pleasant taste i can’t wait till it comes out.... MayorQuimby (100) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy orange color, thin white head, nice lacing. Aroma is pretty tame, citrus, lemony aroma, not much else there. Nice wheat flavor, citrus notes, very crisp in the finish. Palate is typical of a wheat beer, reasonably smooth. This is your prototypical lawnmower beer, would go great with a warm summer afternoon sitting in the sun out on the patio.

taste different with a hint of lemon and pepper. a good beer for the summer Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Golden, slightly hazy beer with a nice, creamy head. Pronounced citrusy/orangey flavours. At first I didn’t taste the wheat, but I don’t suppose it’s added in big quantities. Contains the mystery spice "Grains of Paradise", whooo.... The American brewers are good storytellers too. A very able thirst quencher on a hot day.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Summer Ale pours a nice, semi-cloudy copper with a white head that lasts reasonably well. The nose is a bit dull. The flavors are light with only a slightly lemony presence up front, a bit of a macro washiness in the middle, and a lightly bitter apricot in the end. There is, perhaps, a bit of spice in there somewhere. Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Pours golden with small lacy head, lemon, citrus and hoppy. Citrus lingers a bit long, not a bad seasonal steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours deep golden color with smallish light whitish head. Nose is slightly citrusy with light spicyness. Not much hop presence here. Flavor is also on the citrusy side with a stale wheatlike straw character. Definitely better than your typical backyard lager, but not one I’d look to buy again.
