COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is not just your average summer seasonal. This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a light golden color wig a white head. Nose brings forward some grain and a tiny bit of citrus. Taste is similar without much at all. Slight grain is about it. Feel is light with good carbonation. Easy drinking, but no real reason to reach back for more. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-07-2010

mkel07 (4299) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2011
355ml bottle. Golden amber like the summer sunshine with a slight haze through it. Capped with two fingers of pure white foam. Fresh fruity aromas prepare you for the clean crisp taste. Lively in the mouth with mellow flavours and very low bitterness level. Crisp and dry on the palate this is another good offering from Anderson Valley Brewing Company.

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Appearance: hazy gold, short white head, little lacing. Aroma: fresh-baked wheat bread and butter, some citrus, hints of banana and bubblegum. Taste: tons of sweet wheat, a good amount of fresh citrus, with a bit of spice and funk. Finish: smooth, clean and short, with a little tang. Notes: Very enjoyable wheat beer. Had it in fall, but would be a perfectly acceptable summer barbecue beer. Not the best I’ve had in the style, but extremely respectable.

Summer Solstice (sommarsolstånd) skal enligt etiketten vara en veteöl, men den är förvånansvärt mörk. Doften är småtrevlig fruktig (persika?), men smaken är mycket mörk och maltig. Eftersmaken är inte mycket att skriva om annat än blaskig och tunn. Tycker även ölen har en mycket konstgjord sötma.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is wheat bread, hay, light citrus, and light florals. Flavor shows the same with an additional yeastiness that wasn’t quite present in the nose. Overall body is moderate, soft, and finishes relatively dry. Unfortunately i’m starting to feel the same way about wheat beers that I do about pale lagers.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pours slightly hazy yellow orange with a foamy white head that fades. Aroma of hop and wheat, slightly doughy. Taste has lots of orange flavor and dough, good balance of sweet and bitter grain. Very smooth, medium light body.

Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy yellow, with nice white head. Sweet malt, wheat bread, fruit, and some caramel. Very easy drinking and refreshing.

pilsnerrogge (2630) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2010
Bottled as Summer Solstice Summer Wheat:
Pours a somewhat hazy brass colour with a frothy head. Wheaty nose with faint toffee notes. Wheaty and yeasty flavour with notes of toffee. Boring.

Straw yellow with off white head and lace. Light wheat aroma and lemon. Wheat semi sweet malt and a light mustiness. Thin and watery with light body.

Bottle. Boring and weak aroma and taste of bread, some wheat, caramel and citrus. Cui bono?
