I poured this beer into a perfect pint, it has a nice straw gold color body with a small foamy head that hangs out for a while. The aroma is of wheat with some lemon to it. The taste is mostly wheat with some lemon coming through, as it warms up so does the lemon flavor. The mouth feel is really good, smooth and defently an a easy summer beer.

This beer pours a clear, bold yellow with a thin, bubbly head and no lacing. The aroma is of lemons with dough and a hint of hay. The flavor leads off with lemons with notes of wheat and cake. There's a good balance between the wheat malt and the hops. As it warms the cake fades and the lemon stands on it's own. The mouthfeel is light-medium, thicker than most wheat beers. Wachusett Summer is a real good brew, light, balanced, and refreshing. Perfect for warm weather. Recommended!

On tap at Pawtucket Red Sox games.
A: Bright and clear golden yellow with a thin layer of white foam.
S: Lemony and grassy throughout.
T: Biscutiy malt with a notable flavor of lemon zest from start to finish. Flavors are complimentary and very distinct.
M: Fizzy and light, but not watery. Even a little resiny, in fact.
O: I like me some wheat ales and they seem to become more popular in the summer. I definitely prefer this over Sam Summer, which tastes kind of muddled to me. Think this has knocked Narragansett Summer off as my favorite June-to-August brew,

very bright and somewhat hazy bright yellow appeared before me. Nice three inch high head of frothy white hung around for a good few moments before finally settling down into a thin pillow across the top, nice carbonation.
Light floral yeast, a touch of honey, maybe and that's a stretch and the typical touch of lemon and grass. Very light smell overall flavor was just as light and bland as the smell was/ Light grassy and wheat with a touch of lemon and honey. Not much in the finish as it was clean, and quick.
Super light bodied and ultra carbonated. If that's the style they were going for they sure nailed it.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Straw yellow with good clarity. Effervescent carbonation, two inch white head settles shortly.
S: Bread, wheat, lemon zest, straw, and grassy hops.
T: Malt sweetness followed by twang of wheat and some freshly baked bread. Quick hit of lemon zest comes out mid-palate. Grassy hops provide balance, but remain muted otherwise. Finishes with bready tastes and a hint of lemon and hay.
M: Light in body, smooth, and a tad creamy. Very lively carbonation helps to make this a crisp and refreshing brew.
O: I like it. It's a very simple beer, but I find it to be quite charming in its simplicity. In my opinion, one of the best lawn mower beers out there. Extremely drinkable. I'd take it over a Sam Summer any day.
Notes: I would really like to see Wachusett fool around with this recipe a little bit, maybe use this beer as a base and get creative with it. Hoppy wheat ales are what everyone seems to be clamoring for these days. Something along the lines of A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' might be nice.

pours a golden straw hue with a frothy white thin head that leaves a spot or two of lace. aroma is relatively non-existent... straw and pale malt as it warms, with hints of chemicals and earth. taste is pale and weak. hints of wheat, hints of straw. a bit grassy. not really getting the lemon except in a funky citric finish. mouth is light with an overbearing offensive carbonation that kind of burns and kills any light enjoyable flavor that might be hiding in there. wanted to like this one, but it just falls short of being anything impressive.
