3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad summer beer, but definitely nowhere near as good as it’s predecessor, The Summer Hummer.
Pours a cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Citrus and wheat aroma. Light bodied with a sweet wheat taste. Not a bad summer beer. GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 5, 2014
This is a decent wheat from Sweetwater, I wish they still had Summer Hummer still (the yeast from SH was contaminating their other brews and SW had to discontinue). This will do in a pinch. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2013
On tap at the World Beer Festival - Columbia on 01/22/2011. Slightly hazy goldne body with a large rocky white head. Dry wheat aroma. Dry wheat flavor with some light hops. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation. bigguns22 (806) - Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Very lite and refreshing . Easy summer drinker that disapates quickly. Golden to yellow in color white small head. Not much to say that has not already bin said. Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma contains some lemons and some herbal notes. The flavor is a bit sweet with some lemons and a hint of bread notes. The aftertaste has some sour I didn’t pick up initially. Overall this is a decent wheat beer.

Poured from 12oz. bottle into snifter.
From Sweetwater tacklebox mix pack.
Bottle: Best by 08/14/11
A: Pours a hazy yellow with a solid 1 finger bone white head. Ok retention. Lace is a splotchy down the glass.
S: Smells of citrus, slight lemons, with a wheat backbone to smooth it out. Not much else going on though.
T: Pretty bland. The unfiltered yeast comes through up front and then....yeah that’s about it. A little fruit, maybe. This is about as average as average can be.
M: Light bodied with a solid crispness and medium to high carbonation.
O: This was a very average brew. Typical run of the mill wheat ale.
Serving type: bottle

Part of the "tackle box" sampler pack
A: Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a white frothy billowy head. Good retention on this one
S: Tons and tons of peach and orchard fruit (cantaloupe?) right off the bat, wheat, and an interesting yeast strain. Very subtle and delicate nose
T: Again, subtle. Tart fruits, tons of orchard fruits, wheat and that yeast again - not sure I’ve come across this one
MF/O: Light, clean finish, peachy finish, mellow carbonation giving a nice feel to it kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

12oz bottle. Unfiltered yellowed-tan. Thin white head. Mild canned peach aroma. A little towards the end of it’s lifespan, this beer only has two days to go before the best before date. Mellow medium body, a pretty insipid beer. Delicate fruity tones, stale wheat starting to turn pungent. Drinkable, but pretty unimpressive.
