330 can. Pours a clear light amber colour with a white head and a big toffee aroma plus hints of hops and wheat. It has that wheat beer flavour combined with a sweet creamy toffee note and nice hop bitterness. This beer surprised me and I would love to try it fresh. Regardless this beer is pushing boundaries, if you see I try it.

Disliked it more as it went along. It is basically a caramel and vanilla flavored american pale wheat ale.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a clear amber color with an off white head. Bready malt aroma with a good bit or sweetness. Flavor has some off notes with a sweet and sour feel. Wondering if there isnít something wrong with the keg. Will have to try again at another time and re-rate to be sure.

This is a pretty dark beer for a wheat... and thatís a welcomed sight. Iím not a fan of wheat ales at all, but Anderson Valley is one of my favorite brewers, so Iím already willing to give this beer a chance. The color is a dark amber, with a mostly transparent body and an off-white head that fades quickly. The beer is too wet and not sticky enough to leave behind any lacing, but thereís enough sediment floating around in the beer to make up for that.
The aroma is of sweet, caramel malts and is light, refreshing and smooth on the nose with hints of a fruity candy (almost like candi sugar). In the mouth, itís wicked smooth. Caramel malts prevail. The beer is balanced in just the right way so that the sweet barley overpowers what wheat ended up going in this. Thank you, Anderson Valley... I owe you one. It finishes soft and clean, with a lingering taste of sweet, unfermented barley water right in the center of the tongue.
Itís not very lively on the palate, but if it was it wouldnít feel this smooth. Iím actually very impressed by this.

Really pretty creative. Cocoa nibs, vanilla, honey...hints in taste and aroma. the flavor. The malts ad hops woven together with specific fruits and spices. It is really developed and I liked it
