COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve been making wheat beers since the summer of 1984. They’ve all been golden summer refreshers instead of dark winter warmers – until now. Anchor Winter Wheat is made with a unique blend of malted barley and five wheats from Belgium, Germany, the Midwest, and a family farm just 75 miles away, where we get our soft red winter wheat. Sown in November and harvested in June, it is used in artisanal flatbreads, cakes and pastries. In 1848, California farmers forsook their amber grain for golden fortune. By 1878, California wheat was back big-time, winning gold at the Paris International Exposition. There was a even a wheat beer brewery in North Beach, one mile from our first home. Today, the robust flavor, malty complexity, enticing aroma, ebony color, and thick creamy head of Anchor Winter Wheat reflect this delicious heritage. Cheers!

Erasmus_ro (3199) - Alabama, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a large, latte-colored head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, dark fruit. Taste is slightly roasted, caramel, spice, slight chocolate, dark fruit. Smooth. Rather stout-like. Not much in the way of a dunkelweizen here. Perhaps a dunkelweizenbockish beer?

3.7
Turboninja (859) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2017
[email protected], from Alko Sokos, Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with sweet, dark fruits, chocolate and some alcohol bite. Black color with small, light beige head. Medium, balanced taste with dark fruits and chocolate, lightly roasted malts, some wheat and a hint of nuts. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with sweetish malts. Medium body with log/medium carbonation. Overall, wheat doesn’t feel so much, but still strong and balanced product.

Once again Anchor Brewing doesn’t disappoint. Wheat beers aren’t my favorite, but this is one enjoyable beer.

RexTalionis (3813) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle. Black in color with a tan head. Sweet dark fruits, mild roasted notes in aroma. Some cocoa too. The wheat appears later on, very mild though. Sweet malty tast, some chocolate as well. Bit dry. Light spicy finish. In a blindtasting I would have guessed this to be somekind of Belgian dubbel with a small wheaty twist. Dried dark sweet fruity aftertaste.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark brown which was a bit shock as I expected it to be pale. Brown head. Nose is sweet dark malts, dark fruits, some liquorice, light roast, sweet wheaty notes. Tastes very malty, quite smooth, gentle roast and light bitter, quite rich. Solid, has something winterish in it, malty, sweetish. Better than expected.
