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,
