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.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Slightly cloudy golden-yellow body without much head. Aroma of a banana dessert of some kind. Soft and silky body. Taste is smooth and full of wheat with bananas and lemon flavours. Effective and refreshing light wheat beer but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall this is a beer that plays it safe, which ironically is exactly what a high roller doesn’t do.

22oz Bottle sahred with Doug. Nothing real special here. Rather disappointed. Not that Im expecting a ton from a wheat just expecting more from AVBC.

22 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color. Head was white and left a little lace.. Smelled of sour fruits and a bit of lemon. Flavor was similar with a touch of acidity on the tongue. I wasn’t particularly impressed with thin one.

This is probably the weakest of all the beers I have had from Anderson. I expected more but the title could be misleading, as this was not a serious mans wheat beer. It was very pale with a frothy head that had no stature. Flavor was decidely weak. Wouldnt buy again since they have better alternatives.

Much better than Pyramid or Widmer....but just a little lacking on the flavor. Nice aroma, color, and clean refreshing palate. Could use a lemon, thats for sure. This is a good step-up from the macro Hef’s, but still not on the level of Paulaner or Franziskaner.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours a soft, hazy light yellow with a big white head. Cereal and malty aroma. Slight cherry and fruit flavor backing and incredibly strong wheat flavor. Very dry.

Ratman197 (9034) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bomber poured a hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat and yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat and light citrus with a crisp clean finish. Easy drinking, but boring!

The beer pours a Hazey goldne brown. The aroma was alright but the taste was very good. It had a really nice smooth and refreshing taste. A really good wheat beer and a good all-around light beer.

1 pint 6oz bottle. Poured a golden brown with a nice white head. Aroma was alright but the taste was very good-- very crisp with some hoppiness and it would be even better with some lemon in it so I know there’s some citrus background. Very good beer and I would definately have it again soon.
