Summer weizen poured a hazy orange color with a half inch head into a pilsner glass. It was a struggle to detect anything unique in the aroma aside from a slightly biscuity scent. The taste was a watery weizen flavor with faint hints of spice. It was a very mild ale that did not leave a strong impression. I was not sure what to expect since the label promises the ale to be brewed with chamomile flowers. There was nothing that stood out in this beer. I generally think of a weizen being a wheat beer with a sense of sweetness. Any flavor here was very mild.

Bottle poured into a pint.

A: The appearance is a slightly hazy orange yellow. The head disappeared very quickly. This beer is also out of its recommended best by date by about two months.

S: The beer smells mildly wheaty with some sweet honey aromas and a little bit of citrus/hop aroma.

T: The taste is crisp and tart at first. This is a decently bitter beer for a light summer wheat, and I appreciate and enjoy that hop profile (or chamomile since I am not really sure what that tastes like.) The aftertaste has a mild sweet and biting citrus type profile.

M: The MF is very creamy which is typical of American wheat beers. I love the way American wheats feel in my mouth. The carbonation is a bit high and stings a little.

O: This would be a good summer thirst quencher. The sweet and bitter and nicely balanced and the flavor is pretty damn good.

Pours a pale golden color with a very thin white head. The beer is surprisingly transparent, I normaly expect a wheat beer to be a little more cloudy.
The aroma is pretty citrusy with nice hints of wheat and some spice, coriander, orange peel, and pepper.
Flavor is defiantly big on the citrus. There is a bit of hop bitterness right at the end.
Mouthfeel is smooth and easy drinking. Nice big carbonation really makes this a nice refreshing summer beer.
