223. Smuttynose Summer Weizen Ale

Snuttynose is generally one of my favorite brewers and their Big Beer Series has some of my top rated beers. The Summer Weizen did not meet my high expectations of Smuttynose. Still a quality beer but not as good as many others from this brewery.

Color is typical pale yellow of most summer ales. Not a lot of aroma from this one but some bread, mild citrus and even a little spice. Taste is sweet up front followed by a mild hop bite and smooth finish. This is a nice summer beer and quite refreshing.
