Review: Samuel Adams Summer Ale (2013)

Share

samuel adams summer aleAnd now for some Sam Adams you can actually buy. This seasonal release Summer Ale is a wheat beer brewed with lemon peel and grains of paradise. It’s a combo that works. You can really taste the grains of paradise! (Ha!)

But seriously, the addition of lemon helps to balance out a bready body, lending acidity and some almost tropical fruitiness where it’s needed. Unfortunately this effect tends to dissipate rather soon, leaving behind a beer that is somewhat flat and driven by its wheat component. Refreshing, but drink it fast. And cold.

5.3% abv.
