Had at recent beer club meeting. Pours a clear golden color with nice layer of frothy white head. Aroma is bit citric yeast. Flavor is weaker than I would have expected. Typical wheat flavor, though a bit sharper citric notes and more mild yeasty doughiness than most. Overall, not bad but not worth the anchor price.
12 ounce can from the remainder shelf at Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Nice. clean and fresh. I wish I had saved it for a hot summer day. PatrickYEG (62) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2017
Anchor Summer is an all-malt beer, and over 50% of its malt comes from malted wheat. It is fermented with a Triticum aestivum, AKA wheat traditional top-fermenting "ale" yeast because we prefer the clean flavors developed by this yeast. We believe that this style best celebrates the refreshingly light flavor of malted wheat. You may notice that the head on this beer is unusually abundant,

Keg at the brewery. Clear golden. Nose is light wheat, sweet grass, fruits. Tastes light wheat and fruits, bland. AntonyWilson (465) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 22, 2017
355ml Can: Pours a clear golden with thick white head that retains well. Lacing. Aroma of citrus and marshmallow. Spicy notes fill the mouth, finishing quite dry. Interesting candy-like flavours as well. Bitterness is medium, body is medium to low, carbonation is medium. Overall the beer is crisp and clean with a great flavour. I really like this style of beer. Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - JUL 28, 2017

Anchor Summer Wheat pours a clear golden color and sports a fluffy white head with beautiful lacing. The subtle nose leads with aromas of pineapple and green apple, backed by bright tropical fruits. The taste is acidic from attack to finish, with more hoppiness than the nose suggests on the mid-palate with light astringency and a hint of resin. The fluffy body is light, bordering on lean. Quaffable.
Summer beer campaign down at Familymart. Aroma: rather sour. Appearance: clear dark amber, minimal head. Palate: light-bodied and thin, average carbonation, bitter finish. Taste: moderately bitter, bananas and pear drops at the end. Misleading, tastes more like an IPA, where’s the wheat? Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a yellow pale transparent color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Sly messy lace.
The aroma had some sweet floral to herbal character touching down with a keen clean sweet wheaty crispness.
The flavor copied the aroma sweetly providing a clean crisp aftertaste and finish.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a clear sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty good easy going American pale wheat ale that would be good again for the warmer weather. Piw (1253) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2017
355ml Dose. Klar und golden mit großer Schaumkrone. Leicht Getreidig mit Weizen- und Citrusaroma. Leichter Körper. Süßlich und mild im Geschmack. DavyK (195) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Lovely and sunny, quick finish and zesty edge to it. Very easy drinking with nice carbonation. Doesn’t compare favourably to more complex European varieties but it’s not trying to. Does what it sets out to, very very well. basaywhat (312) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2017
12 oz can. Pours a cloudy yellowish gold with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of pale malts, wheat and mild citrus hop notes with some fruity esters. Flavor is spicy wheat, light residual sweetness up front but drys out on the finish.
