American Pale Wheat Ale |  4.68% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Indian Summer is a light profile American-style wheat ale spiced with Orange Peel and Coriander. Our recipe uses a mix of wheat and pale barley. This beer is very lightly hopped to allow the spices to shine through. Clean fermenting yeast produce a very dry, crisp base to further accentuate the spices. The aroma has a distinct citrus note without being overly fruity.

3.95/5  rDev +19%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Golden Orange with minimal head. I had two and I had to give it a pretty vigorous pour to get a finger of head out of it. It looks like your standard filtered wheat ale, so nothing new or out of the ordinary.

S: Spices, Wheat, and citrus. It smells good but it isn't something that I wanted to smell all day.

T: Starts with some nice spice notes and transitions to some citrus flavors and finishes with a very clean sweet malt flavor. I bought a six pack for a cookout where I two and didn't take any home with me. Everyone else liked it as well if that gives you an indication of the quality of flavor. The spices are by no means overpowering which is very nice. This beer shows very good balance and complexity for what it is.

M: This is a pretty good summer beer. Good carbonation and a moderate mouthfeel makes this something that you want to reach for if you have it in the fridge and need some refreshment.

D: This beer is very drinkable. I could definitely see myself using this as a session beer.

Final Notes: This is a tasty summer beer that I might have to grab another sixxer of due to the lack of selection around here. As far as flavors this beer reminds me of different things I like about some other summer beers and it rolled those qualities into a bottle of Indian Summer. This beer gives me hope in the rest of the line from Lazy Magnolia.

EDIT: had this beer on tap a couple weeks ago and was not impressed. I don't know what the deal was but it was very lackluster. I'm not going to edit the numbers but just leave a note in here. Could have been the keg, the glassware, or inconsistency in brewing. Without knowing more I can't take this beer down a peg or two based on one bad experience after having a better than average review of it before. If it happens again I'll play with the numbers and make note of it. otherwise I'll leave it where it sits.

This beer was vey unique to me. Had a flavor but more bitterness than the flavor. Wasn't bad at all tho I went to a local brew store in my home town where they said its a big favorite so Ihad to give it a try and was honestly impressed. Taste a little like a light beer I guess you could say. Very hard to really explain cause it was so different to me. Go try it

Loads of information on the label, wish there was a freshness dating

Pours an effervescent gold/bronze with a pinky of pearl colored head. Stays effervescent throughout, zero head retention & lacing

S: Grassy, with cereal notes, coriander & white pepper

T: Follows the nose, pear & white grape notes & slight coriander notes up front. More pear, some wet cereal notes & grassiness, a little orange peel as well. Finishes grassy with thinned out cream of wheat, & orange peel

MF: Light bodied with crisp carbonation; body thickens up as this warm

I imagine this is fairly popular & would work when it is hot & humid, but only for two at the most for me. There are way better wheat beers out there. One & done
