On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet wheat, toasted coconut, light fruit and some cookie. Flavor has lots of sweet wheat and toasted coconut and just a hint of light fruits.

Can to pint. Clear red pour with a single finger head that stayed for quite awhile. Tons of malt sweetness in the nose. Taste is malt and raisins. Dope beer.

Everyone keeps saying this is really sweet. I did not think this was sweet at all. If anything its like a non sweet cream soda. That is it... a non sweet cream soda... nothing else to say.

Pours light amber/caramel. Medium cream head with little retention. Nose was odd. Almost candy sweetness; unintentionally Belgian? Hint of candied orange. Taste was sweet cream soda, but not a good one. Some vanilla and spice. Not a drain pour, but wouldnít have again.

Can. This is a caramel in liquid form. Not sure what they are trying to accomplish here.

Draft at SB. This is far outside what I would call a cream ale or a wheat ale, so the fact that RB canít agree with the brewery about what style this beer is is actually a moot point. I double-checked with both bartenders and almost snuck in back to see which keg was hooked up. Weird beer. Still, though--rating this hedonically. Itís OK to surprise me with weird style classifications, it just takes me a second to get my bearings sometimes. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy short-lived pale tan head. Big sweet nose, lots of caramel and toffee. Slippery medium body. Light carb. Caramel and powdered sugar on the mid palate. Is this back-sweetened? It tastes like pop. Cloying, powdery finish. Not very pleasant. The fact that this beer resulted in C&D letters against a far better beer with the same name only adds to the frustration. I *love* Anderson Valley and I totally respect their legal compulsion/requirement to send C&D letters, but this beer isnít doing them any favors in the glass anymore than it is legally.

Absolutely stunning wheat ale; could indeed be my favorite. Slippery mouthfeel is a huge plus. But here, what Iím mainly getting is a rich, roasty matl flavor, which is stunning. This is a good one.

Pours a fairly clear amber color with white head. Caramel malt, some darker fruit, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some spice.

Tap. I had this outdoors on a nice Spring day. It was a gorgeous copper color with a slight head. The flavor was mildly spicy and pretty unique. I didnít get a lot of the wheat flavors I was expecting. Very good overall.
