I’ve had 3 growlers of this so far and finally found a chance to review it. Drank it cold from the fridge, poured into a fresh pint glass.

A – Pours the perfect golden yellow, with a nice white 2 finger head. The head dissipates to a ring of white bubbles around the glass. Good lacing was present.

S – Wheat was the dominant smell with citrus, mainly lemon to follow.

T – Very light on wheat flavor with nice refreshing lemon notes. The hop bitterness was present and not over powering.

M – Very smooth and refreshing a very light beer with good carbonation. Everything was perfectly balanced with the wheat, light hops, and bite from the carbonation.

O – Overall this beer was a refreshing crisp summer drinker. I couldn’t get enough of it. Wish it was bottled!

64 oz brewery fresh growler into a pint glass. Enjoyed this under it's new name of "Goofy Foot Summer Wheat".

Pours a hazy pale gold with 2 tight fingers of foamy brite-white head. Retains with a thin, yet still frothy look, which leaves some sturdy looking moderate sticky lacing back. The aroma is freshly floral, citric, and a bit spicy, mixing with the sweetness of the pale malts to impart a sharp bready tang in the nose. The freshness of the hops is really working nicely with the malt activity here. Very pleasant.

The taste is similar, with a firm base of lightly toasted bready malt sweetness, which is well balanced by a solid dose of nice and spicy American hop character. Quite the satisfying dry and spicy finish to this. Well done. The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a firm carbonation and crisp feel in the mouth. This has a surprising amount of presence for a sub 5% beer.

Nicely done Summer Ale here, with fuller flavors and a crisp and easy drinking nature about it. I was a bit shocked by how aggressive the hops were in this. I foresee a few more growlers of this in my future this summer.

On tap at Capone's..

A - A moderately hazed light golden yellow color... A slight pure white head quickly fades leaving a splotchy lacing... Moderate carbonation...

S - Wheat... Slightly floral... Vague spices... Lemony... Strong bready malt base...

T - Wheat... Banana... A touch of spiciness... Faint lemon zest... The faintest of hop bitterness on the finish...

M - Quite refreshing... Sharp... Assertive... Clean... On the lighter side of medium bodied... Brisk carbonation... Clean... Crisp...

D - Easy drinking... Super sessionable... A supreme warm weather beer... I would opt for the Diabolcial Dr. Wit in a heart beat, but this one is a respectable offering on it's own by the fine folks at Spring House...

A-Hazy light golden yellow with a medium bright white head. Head reduces to a thin cap and leaves decent lace.

S-Spicy with a nice floral/herbal hop kick. Nice support from a lightly toasted biscuit malt base

T-Sharp, spicy hop pop and yeast zip meld nicely with the toasted biscuit malt. A surprising amount of hop zip in this one. Dry finish.

M-Medium-light bodied and crisp with a good ligering flavour profile and hop bitterness.

D-Spicy and hoppy with a nice, crisp, malt base. A tasty and easy drinking sub 5% ABV brew that fits well with summertime events. Too bad summer is about over! Looking forward to enjoying this one a bit more next year!

Served on-tap at the Tasting Room.

A - Pours golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small trails of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of bready wheat, spices, dulled citric fruit and a light grassy hop bitterness.

T - Starts off with plenty of bready wheat slowly giving way to hints of dulled fruit, grassy hops and some light spice. Finish is dry, not lingering for very long.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth initially growing a little watery toward the end of the glass.

O - As with Dr. Wit this is just ok. Nothing necessarily wrong with it but I will stick with some of the other beers.

Draft offering at the taproom by springhouse. This is goofy foot with citra hops. The brew appears a clouded yellow color with a creamy silk topping of white froth that perisits throughout the entire duration. An awesome looking brew.

The smell includes notes of fresh grassy hops. Some citrus elements galore with a touch of grass and herbs.

The taste is a bit grassy and vegetative with rindy pith and bitterness like zest/rind. It is light and yet bright and vibrant at the same time with a mild wheat sort of base grain dryness into the finish.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is nicely done and enjoyable, a clear favorite of all the brews that were on tap during my last visit. Would certainly drink this again.
