3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strong, above average american style amber. Apperantly the brewary is prepairing a label change that will change the name from Amber Weaten to Amber Weizen. Presumably to feed off the tremendous popularity of thier Hefeweizen. Very good beer if you like Alaskan Amber but long for something just a little different.

Pors a murky red/brown wih a fast a falling tan head. very light on the wheat, still smooth with a slight fruitiness. This is actually a really decent amber, very balanced with a fuity malt finish.

This had a very good taste to me. Poured a dirty reddish brown. And went down very refreshing. Head diminished quickly. When I saw it I was curious how amber and hefe would mix, and I wasn’t dissapointed.

Another great product from Pyramid. I really like the ambers and the wheats and this is one for the books. I would love to fing it on tap somewhere. Just saw it tonight in Safeway. I hope that it joins pyramid in its regular line-up,and not just a seasonal beer.

Bottle pours a very murky butterscotch, small frothy off-white head that quickly vanishes, virtually no carbonation, with slick lacing.   Slightly malty aroma, kinda sweet, but really subtle.   Forwardly like an amber, malty, with a slightly wheaty mouthfeel.   I also detect a very minor sourness... it actually kind of adds to the beer.   Finishes with that same sourness, slightly bitter, and a bit of a wheaty aftertaste.   Not half bad!

Tap@Pyramid Alehouse. Pale amber. Grainy, thin. tasted exactly like the unfiltered wheat, so in other words,very bland

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Special Release"..12 oz brown bottle with a rather attractive summery coloured rendition of the traditional Pyramid label.
Wow this beer is really unfiltered a dense foggy dark amber with a small tan head..some sediment in bottom of bottle..I like this.
aroma is of a typical American wheat though..sort of sour but very subdued compared to the german versions.
the taste is quite nice for the summer..light and fruity, not too cloying though..the wheat aspect comes through a bit on the back of the tongue.
Quite smooth and not thin on the palate.
I actually enjoyed this one..not great but good enough for summer.

New bottled beer from Pyramid, says "special release" and "wheat beer pioneers" on the label...whatever. Hazy amber when poured mit hefe, chunks indicate a floculant lager yeast may be used for bottling. Dusty aroma of, well, wheat, a little fruitiness too, kinda like fruit loops. Fairly nice, if simple, flavor of sweet juicy caramel malt with slight cardboard, wheaty elements are there as well, with some acidity to carry it along. Pretty good but that’s all...
