Not a big hefe wizen fan, but I pulled this from a Summit variety pack. Color is a nice golden yellow. Flavor is complex but nicely balanced with the typical banana/spice you would expect from this style. Overall a little heavy and not as refreshing, but a well rounded entry and a must try for any hefe weizen fan.

So my chance to have summit. I grabbed it from a shipment and was excited to get it.

It smells fruity with flowers
Taste is not good. Skunk with bitter. Just not for me. I do feel that if I had poured it colder it would have been better.
Lots of carbonization on the tongue.

Overall this beer is not for me. .

Gotta love college budgets, first review in a while. Poured into my 21st birthday mug.

A: Nice golden orange color. Clear with tons of carbonation and bubbles rising to the top. 2 finger head that sticks around for a while and settles into about an inch of head that sticks around for the whole trip. Pretty nice lacing as well.

S: Only citrus, maybe some malts too. Very sweet smelling.

T: Follows the nose. Heavy on the citrus, pretty much exclusively sweet. Maybe a little alcohol at the end? Seems off for the abv but thats what it seems like. Finishes pretty clean.

M: Lots of carbonation, but has a crisp mouthfeel, light but not thin.

O: Solid beer, not my favorite hefe but i could drink it on a nice summers day.

Poured into my Surly pint glass.

Pours a light straw color. Pillowy white head sits atop. Dissipates rather quickly. Smells like citrus. A fair amount of carbonation. Goes down with ease. Slight hop character with a citrus finish. A very typical summer hefe. Good but not spectacular.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint. Bottled on 4/27/11.

A: Pours a nearly clear, light golden color with 1-1/2 fingers of off-white head. Strong retention and lace, active carbonation.

S: Light banana, faint spice, a little earth.

T: Like the smell, starts with light banana notes and then adds some spice in the middle. Overall, the flavor is too tame, leaves me wanting more.

M: Quite good, light and very creamy.

O: A nice beer, but I really wish there were more going on with the flavor and aromas. Would make a good thirst-quencher for a hot day.
