I wouldn’t normally try a beer dubbed a “Hummer” but I’ve enjoyed the few beers I’ve thus far tried from the Sweet Water Brewing Company. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the sweetly citrus-ish taste this wonderful beer provides. Indeed, it pours a cloudy orange-gold hue to reveal a nice light lacing with few bubbles and has an elegant white ale nose not unlike a good Belgian of similar style. The finish is refreshing with subtle lemon hints.
I definitely like the fruity overtones this fine beer imparts as it reminds me of a nice summer’s day relaxing on the beach. With a reasonable alcohol content of 5.1%, this American interpretation of a Belgian White ale with a slight lemon taste is a knock out– give the Hummer a try. In fact, give a few a try! They surely won’t be a bummer.
