Poured from a bit above the glass gave this beer a medium sized white head above a clear reddish golden colored pale.

A rich but not overdone aroma of pine and citrus hops with a little spiciness to it.

The taste is similar to the nose with nice citrus blended with a light pine and a slight sort of spiciness to it.

A medium bodied beer with a slight dry aftertaste left me wanting more of this stuff.

Bottle into weizen

Two and a half finger head, light amber

Smells like vanilla, citrus, and pine

Tastes like apricots, grapefruits, and booze

M: Watery

I think I had an expired bottle or something, but I can't find the date on the bottle. :( I'll try this again...maybe?

This has always been my go to beer at watering holes with a limited beer selection.
Pours golden in color. Smooth taste with higher then average hoppiness.
Usually purchase it Morreli's in St. Paul, where all Summit beers are under $11 for 12 pack.
