08/12/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This is a perfectly respectable beer. Perfect body. Polite aftertaste. A true summer quaffer. I'll be researching the possibilities of establishing a keg in my livingroom now tha the air conditioner has crapped out. Smutty Summer may have saved my life...but I'll have get back to you on that, assuming I survive.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 9/5/2014. Pours hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, chamomile, wheat, cracker, bread, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spice, and pale/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, chamomile, wheat, cracker, bread, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy tartness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, chamomile, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spice, and pale/bready malt sweetness; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice pale wheat ale. Good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spice, and pale/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12oz bottle at fridge temps into a weizen glass.

Appearance: pale yellow with a firm head of medium bubbles. Good head retention after 25 minutes in the glass (I had to step away for a few moments).

Nose: Bright and floral hop aroma, almost a bready smell but too faint to tell, some kind of cleaner (PBW maybe but it could be a piney smell from the hops), clean smelling with no (too) off aromas.

Taste: Refreshingly light, slight hops bitterness up front that gives way to the wheat maltyness of this weizen. Crisp; a very nice summer wheat ale.

This is a cross between a sorta hoppy American Pale Ale (APA) and a German Weizen so I don't think it is firmly in either category. This ambivalence makes it an excellent summer pounder though. Good beach beer.
