Pours a rich copper amber hue with medium off white slowly fading creamy head. Aroma and Taste of caramel malt, some wheat and light spicy notes with some bitterness. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, some wheat and light spiciness and some bitter notes on the for balance. Overall a good, solid summer brew.

330 can. Pours a clear light amber colour with a white head and a big toffee aroma plus hints of hops and wheat. It has that wheat beer flavour combined with a sweet creamy toffee note and nice hop bitterness. This beer surprised me and I would love to try it fresh. Regardless this beer is pushing boundaries, if you see I try it.

Wheat and citrus aroma. Dark brown reddish appearance with light head. Faint caramel flavor which fades quickly. Lightly carbonated, taste flat and flavorless.

Disliked it more as it went along. It is basically a caramel and vanilla flavored american pale wheat ale.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a clear amber color with an off white head. Bready malt aroma with a good bit or sweetness. Flavor has some off notes with a sweet and sour feel. Wondering if there isn’t something wrong with the keg. Will have to try again at another time and re-rate to be sure.

This is a pretty dark beer for a wheat... and that’s a welcomed sight. I’m not a fan of wheat ales at all, but Anderson Valley is one of my favorite brewers, so I’m already willing to give this beer a chance. The color is a dark amber, with a mostly transparent body and an off-white head that fades quickly. The beer is too wet and not sticky enough to leave behind any lacing, but there’s enough sediment floating around in the beer to make up for that. The aroma is of sweet, caramel malts and is light, refreshing and smooth on the nose with hints of a fruity candy (almost like candi sugar). In the mouth, it’s wicked smooth. Caramel malts prevail. The beer is balanced in just the right way so that the sweet barley overpowers what wheat ended up going in this. Thank you, Anderson Valley... I owe you one. It finishes soft and clean, with a lingering taste of sweet, unfermented barley water right in the center of the tongue. It’s not very lively on the palate, but if it was it wouldn’t feel this smooth. I’m actually very impressed by this.

Really pretty creative. Cocoa nibs, vanilla, honey...hints in taste and aroma. the flavor. The malts ad hops woven together with specific fruits and spices. It is really developed and I liked it

Wow. This one is ridiculously creamy. Pours an amber color with a moderate head. Super smooth and easy to drink, almost like you’re drinking milk. This was surprising.
