COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams® Summer Ale is an American wheat ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body. The ale fermentation imparts a background tropical fruit note reminiscent of mangos and peaches. All of these flavors come together to create a thirst quenching, clean finishing beer perfect for those warm summer days.

Pours hazy gold color with 1 inch creamy white head. Wheat, yeast, and fruit aromas. A slightly malty, citrus taste. Smooth and refreshing but lacking.

mikske79 (1531) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2016
De geur is redelijk futloos. Een lichtblond bier. De smaak is redelijk waterachtig. Een tegenvaller.

Bierdimpfe (518) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Cloudy dark straw color with dense storming activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head that last for 5 minutes, making some average leggings. Flavors of caramel, wheat, sweet grains, corn, citrus, noble spices. Slick medium body with excessive carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a roasted malty feel and a thick sugary syrupy feel. Overall I find this one not very well craft from the lack of intensity and balanced flavors. Overly sweet and feels adjunct.

An american, amber, unfiltered "summer ale" with white head. Aroma is a bit bad. Malt, cheese, phenol. Taste is bitter. Infected? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koelschtrinker (17959) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 1, 2016
Herb hefiger, hintergründig orangiger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil bleibt die leichte Fruchtigkeit erfreulicherweise erhalten, geringe Würzigkeit, hohe Süffigkeit. Spritzig, gelungen. 10/9/11/10/11/11

Michael27 (1099) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Sieht eigentlich erste einmal gut aus im Glas. Schmeckt dafür aber sommerlich sehr wässrig. Eine gewissen anfänglich leicht angedeutete Würzigkeit schwindet flugs. Das ganze Bohau um die Besonderheit ("Graines of Paradise"!!) sind eher Werbemasche.

futre7 (220) - Taipei, TAIWAN - AUG 22, 2016
Nose is malt and sick, with a touch of honey. I definitely get zesty fruit like lemon and lime. But above all honey is the main contributor. It is a well rounded beer with a nice lingering sweet aftertaste. Solid summer beer.

Golden coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Aroma is sweet, a bit oddly spiced. Sweet and mild.
