look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Cloudy gold with a thin white head. decent lacing. typical wheat beer look
S: subtle wheat and lemon, nothing powerful in the nose
T: crisp wheat flavor with a wondefully balanced lemon flavor. the lemon is actually complex, there are a couple citrus flavors at play here without being sour. This beer suprised me. at first sip if you told me it was the summer ale I would have believed you, but its softer than summer ale, with a more rounded flavor.
M: Medium body with a clean, dry, crisp finish.
D: Not sure why this is the new spring beer. to me its more of a summer beer. its very similar to summer ale (I think it may be better, but its been 9 months since Ive had summer ale. Ill have to try a side by side). In my mind though, sam adams needs a bock, not another beer similar to two they already have. That said its very drinkable and refreshing, i like it, i just dont quite understand it.
