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.

Strange first taste but good after-taste. Probably fine for a bottle but wouldn’t buy a six-pack

LoFi (1678) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle (seems like this is sometimes called High Rollers Wheat). From notes. Hazy golden with a white head. Citrus, wheat, some yeast and spices. Works as a summer beer.

jonas (6141) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle, bought in Sweden as Summer Wheat. Sweet wheat and tropic hop aroma. Pale yellow haze, lacing foam. Light papery wheat malt, light body. Nice hoppyness otherwise like other American wheats.

maneliquor (3474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2011
This was very pleasant thanks to a freebie from Mane Liquor. Super easy drinking wheat beer so don’t be expecting something like Blanche. Flavour is a mould of sweet wheat and citrus. Works well and is perfect on a hot summer day

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 (4343) - 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 (1567) - 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.

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.
