Manayunk Summer Paradise

Posted: August 11, 2015 in American Pale Wheat Ale, Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant, Reviews

I refilled the bird feeder that we have outside our front window. In turn, the cat has continually tried to get these birds, despite the window that separates him from the bird. It’s hilarious to watch.


ABV: 3.8%

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Summer Paradise is a crisp, slightly tart, wheat-based ale that makes one wonder how so much flavor could be bestowed upon each sip. This thirst-quenching ale keeps with the tradition of brewing easy drinking beers during warmer months. With just a hint of spices, within a backdrop of citrus, it will remind you of a summer in paradise.”

Random: I almost had this on draft at the brewery, but decided on a different beer. That’s why I picked up this can so I could review it and give it a fair shake.

This beer poured with less than half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy yellow with moderate carbonation. The nose had some orange with some sweetness, but very mellow nose. The taste started with orange and quickly when to the tart end of the spectrum. It wasn’t intense, but definitely present. Lemon came through and yeast as well. The body was thin with moderate carbonation. Given the tartness, it could have used a bit more carbonation. It had a quick finish with citrus and tartness. This was $2.69 for the can, which broke down to $.22 per ounce. This was an alright beer, but nothing worth searching out.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
