Pours out to a light amber in the glass with an average-sized head. The aroma is the of light citrus, bread dough and a light spice of some sort. The taste is solid, with hints of banana, albeit light and clove. This finishes with a light citrus taste to it. A very solid summer beer and a quite refreshing one at that. A perfect compliment to grilled food.

In Detroit for a Mite Level Hockey Tourny and took the chance to visit the Fort Street Brewery. The Summer Sunsation was a good beer. The beer poured hazy yellow, white head, a little retention and lace. The scent carried a definite spice/clove punch with some subtle sweetness. The taste included wheat, spice/clove, a vanilla flavor with slight fruit taste. The mouthfeel was light to sligth medium body. Carbontation was good. Overall the beer was good with power spice.

On tap at FSB.
This is a solid summer beer, nothing more, nothing less. Certainly makes one think of that big name summer wheat from that company that comes out of that county that begins with a "K"
Pours a peach/amber in color, typically cloudy for the style. Nose is fresh and sweet. Taste follows suit, notes of light fruit, bananas a bit in there. Only slightly bitter, well balanced and certainly quaffable. Would and will make for a nice summer quencher for certain.

I sampled this at the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Fest.
A: Hazy straw, white head, a little retention and lace.
S: Acidulated wheat? Pineapple, vanilla, hint of cloves.
T: Lightly flavoured: wheat, bread, lemon, pineapple, slight hint of tartness/acidity.
M: Light to moderate body & carbonation.
D: Fairly light, with some interesting & refreshing flavours. Good sunshine beer.

A hefeweizen or German-style wheat beer. Made with 50% malted wheat and a special yeast strain from a brewery in Germany which imparts a subtle banana flavor. So refreshing it's been declared the official summer beverage.

Awesome beer. Had to contact the guys over at FSB to remember what style this was brewed under. Had a nice strawberry blonde like color, with a light white head that quickly dissolved. Scent of hops and sweet grain were noted. Flavor was exceptionally refreshing, with a thirst quenching conbination of hops, malt, and a noted yeast like taste. Finished smooth and cool. This is a helluva beer, wish it was year round made, but as far as I know, it's a seasonal brew. Highly Recommended.

good summer beer. i frequent the brewery and was pleasantly suprized to find it back on the menu. the person i was with was holding out for this beer. she has memories of the beer from last year. good times. the taste hasn't changed much. the haziness is new this year. i don't remember it being that cloudy. the flavor has a hint of bannanas and is not served with a fruit appetizer. this makes the beer almost tropical in flavor. like was said before good summer beer.

This beer has a clear, deep golden color with a slight white head consisting of big bubbles. The aroma consists of a sweet malt smell along with something that smells almost like honey... all sweet. The flavor consists of a nice malt background with a very well balanced banana/clove esters, but then ends with an almost candy-like sweetness. Very different. A refreshing change from a regular hefeweizen.
