Brooklyn Summer Ale

Brooklyn Brewery

USA

Summer ales are often versions of a brewery's attempt at wheat/white/weiss/hefeweizen, repackaged as a "summer" beer, since the former titles often turn off the uninitiated beer consumer. But this is definitely a little different, a nice wheat ale, lightly fruity, with a lemon background, and a slight hop presence. It's a nice refreshing ale, perfect for the season, and a companion, not a replacement, for Brooklyner Weisse.
