Lakefront Wisconsinite Summer Weiss Beer
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BOTTLED 06/05/14"
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Unfortunately my sample's a little old at 165 days / 5.5 months. There's a little bit of sourness to it that I don't think is supposed to be there (although I'm not sure), and the yeast flavor (as in actual yeast) is fairly strong. I'll have to sample this again next year, but for now I think I can work around that.

It's got a great appearance with a yellow-gold body beneath a bright white head that's bolstered by quickly rising bubbles from below. Unfortunately I think that both the head retention and the lacing could be better.

Discounting the yeastiness in the nose, it's fairly clean, offering up sweetish malt and notes of bubblegum/clove. There's some fruitiness to it as well, with perhaps pear, apple, and a hint of citrus.

Once again forgetting about the yeastiness, the flavor is quite solid. It's basically broken into two components that mesh together quite well. One the one side you have the distinctly wheat-accented malt base, and on the other you have the yeasty phenolics. The malt is sweetish, but not "sweet", and there's a moderate amount of bitterness to balance it. The light tartness helps to balance it (although I'm not sure if that's intended, if it's coming from the yeast, or if it's due to age); it's not imposing, and it's certainly acceptable for the style. As a "summer weiss" I think it lends a refreshing edge. The yeasty phenols don't give me any banana but I do get lots of clove. There's also a fruitiness that I can't quite pinpoint, although apple and pear would certainly be apart of it. I hesitate to say it, but it's almost like a dull pineapple. There's a subtle peppery spiciness, and some floral hops help to round it out as well.

The body is medium-light, and it's fairly effervescent, giving a good zest as it crosses the palate. Once warmed, it becomes softer and smoother.

Overall it's quite pleasant, and I can see how its lighter body, somewhat restrained character, refreshing splash of tartness, and lower alcohol (4.45 abv) would make it a great summer beer. I'll definitely look for this again!
