COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blended wheat ale, helles, and amber ale.

Light and refreshing is the name of the game. This American Style Wheat, Helles, Amber blend is a great transition beer for those graduating from the "light" beer scene, and a nice retreat from bigger flavored craft beers. This starts light and crisp from the wheat, is greeted with a touch of breadiness of the Helles, and finishes with a hint of sweetness from the amber for a smooth beer start to finish.

pours clear gold with a decent white foamy head. Aroma is non-distinct, maybe a little wet grass. Taste is crisp and clean with an ever so faint hint of bitter hops on the finish. Kinda watery. Nothing special.

Bootle. Semisweet raisined caramel. Touch of plummy prune fig fruit. Toasted dough.clean enough. Fine.

Bottle. Pours crystal clear orange, small white head, some lacing. Aroma is grassy, caramel, biscuit. Flavor is wheat, caramel, grass. Light set, light bitter. Light body. Meh

crossovert (7402) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2014
355ml bottle. Foamy tight white head. SMell is pear and diacetyl. The flavor is repulsive, no different than old style if you ask me, huge and buttery. Judging by the other reviews these guys should do us a favor and quit.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium golden with a very short-lived head. The aroma picked up sweet honey, bready notes, and a touch of vanilla with leafy hop and clove accents.. not exciting, but pleasant. The flavor found honey and bready notes at the core, with prickly, earthy hops, cloves, and carbonation around.. finished sweeter with amber malts and more honey. Light-bodied and sharper than I expected on the palate.. drinkable, but I donít think I need another.

This beer reinforces yet again how difficult it is for a beer of this type to rise up to be something special. Itís not bad, would be good to cook with, if you donít want a bold beer or one that has any serious character, then maybe, itís ok. But again what is there here to have it stand out - not much. Not quite a beer for the masses, but not a beer of distinction either. Bit on the sweet side is all.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Rileyís World of Wines in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissipates to a cream top. Aroma of golden grain, a hint of grassy hops, some cream tartar, and a hint of bread crust. Taste is light bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of grassy hops, lager years, a touch of tart banana and a hint of Wetherís butterscotch. Finish is semi-dry, a touch watery, slightly tart with aftertaste of creme tartar, vanilla extract and butterscotch. Try again?

Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a small head. Musty cardboard aroma. Crisp palate but it doesnít taste good. This is pretty bad. Drain pour.

Wheat, Helles, and Amber mix? Sounds terrible. This one has an odd cheap amber malt thing going on, think Michelob Amber Malt or the countless other BMC half ass amber beer that have been introduced. The aroma is off, probably the most of any beer Iíve had produced at Sand Creek. A twisted product, I suppose a red wheat, because the helles part is completely negated. Cheap, fraudulent stuff.
