Pours a cloudy pale yellow the color of pineapples. No head to speak of, just a very tiny ring of white bubbles.
Smells of apples, floral hops, some bready fruitiness I can't place. Maybe those are the grains of paradise?
In the taste, a heavy wheat flavor, with some subtle citrus and spicy notes. Very mild sweetness. Light body, no bitterness.
Summer Ale isn't fantastic by any means, but it is the taste of the season. What is it about wheat that's so good during Summer?
