FRUIT/VEGETABLE BEER

Boston Beer Company Samuel Adams Summer Ale

This seasonal brew from the Boston Beer Company, available from March through July, is an American wheat ale that pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Lemon adds a signature taste to the aroma, along with a slight spiciness from the wheat. Citrus meets citrus with Hallertau and Mittelfrueh German Noble hops combining with lemon peel zest. Thrown in to spice things up is the "grains of paradise," spice, native to West Africa and a cross between pepper, ginger and cardamom. This ale delivers a light, refreshing smoothness with a tart and spicy aftertaste.

Price: $6.99 (6-pack of 12 oz)
