Draft from notes. Pours anber with a half finger of white head. Aroma of slightly sweet pale malts. Taste is light sweet with a little wheat and some roasty nuts. Meh, enjoyable and somewhat interesting but not too special.

Very weak and thin tasting session beer. Overly carbonated headless amber brew that manages to combine the worst aspects of a Belgian with those of coors lite while incorporating almost none of the advantages. This is my second sampling. Not worth trying again.

Copper and garnet under a huge copper-hued head which fades slowly into a thin layer with thick edges. Swirls about average.
Caramel malt and apple skins. Dry crunchy bread crusts. Dried banana crisps in the back.
Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Sweet rolls dipped in liquid caramel malt with freshly apple slices for company. Juicy plums along the sides. Grape juice in the middle. Cocoa powder in the breath. Plump peaches.
This beer from Anderson Valley was nothing that I expected which, if I were to pretend she were a Fall seasonal, would be perfect. Classification as a wheat ale further perplexed my mind. In instances like this, I listened more to my tastebuds and they liked what they experienced. Definitely not ground-breaking, but tasty is as tasty does and I’d gladly drink another, albeit next time from a bottle into my glass.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a gold/amber with a thick white head. Has a fruit cup aroma and a taste that is caramel, maple, and a noticable butteriness that is well balanced and really good. Delish!

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 On tap at Beechwood BBQ. Like grown-up cream soda. Malty with a sneaky hop finish. Really outstanding!

Drought. Amber color with creamy beige head, doughy aroma, slightly sweet taste with hops flavor, fizzy, with a sour, abrupt finish. Thoroughly enjoyable summer beer.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance of a full body amber but taste is watery and weak. Has a strange aftertaste like smoked fruit. I can understand the appeal to some that enjoy a thirst quenching beer. I prefer an amber with more body and more bite.

Finally have some sun so opened a summer beer! 5% caramel amber pour with a tan head.ild toffee/Caramel aroma, a darker color than I expected from a summer beer. Figs, fruit, malty sweet, toffee & caramel but very well balanced. Not too sweet at all, a top quality session beer. After warming up a bit, I get a cream soda sweetness from this. Odd but good...

12oz bottle drank at the parents. Poured a deep rusty orange/amber with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma has no wheat what so ever. Notes of old paper plates, wet cardboard backing from a spiral notebook, caramel malt, old wet raisins, bad toffee and molasses. Thinner body with soft carbonation a watery feel and luckily a short lived aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma, lots of cardboard and paper with malts and caramel. This is a wheat, really??
