Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

6 pack bought at Bevmo! poured in a pint glass

A: Beautiful burnt orange/amber with an aggressive white peach head

S: Peach, oats, sweet malt, slight sour tang, slight biscuit, and orange rind! Smell great!

T: Sweet malty goodness, raspberries, orange peel, yogurt, and tons of oats! Taste like your are taking a bite out of a raspberry parfait! Really well done!

M: Light to medium body. Great carbonation that dissipates to a wet palate. Super refreshing!

O: Outstanding summer brew! So much flavor packed into this one but stills stays super refreshing and unique! I picked it up randomly and am super impressed! Bolder and has more complexity then most summer beers and really pushes to the limits of this category! Great beer!
