This is a pretty dark beer for a wheat... and thats a welcomed sight. Im not a fan of wheat ales at all, but Anderson Valley is one of my favorite brewers, so Im 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 theres 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, its 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. Its not very lively on the palate, but if it was it wouldnt feel this smooth. Im 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 youre drinking milk. This was surprising.

Pours a nice amber color with a small head. Nose is malty and grainy. Taste of course ( to me ) is malty, very bready , watery and without much flavor. Finishes poorly, not for me, too light and without flavor. Quaff Score 5 / 10

Pours amber with an off white head and malty, caramel aroma. Taste is similar to the nose, malt, caramel, and wheat with a medium finish. Not much flavor in this brew, expected more.

This is one of my favorite beers of all time. I make it a point to have one at the brewery every year on my birthday. It has an amazing smell and tastes wonderful. It has an almost cinnamon vanilla taste and finishes very smooth. It is sweet but still tastes like a real beer unlike many other very sweet beers. A must for any and every refrigerator. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap at the Denver Summer Brew Fest, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big vanilla, biscuit, and sweet orange notes, slight hints of spice, more sweet grain. Taste is lots of sweet almost artificial vanilla, touch of wheat with some fruit, slight biscuit, honey notes, finishing with a hint of earth, grainy notes as well.

On tap at a local wine bar, pours a dark copper/brown...extremely smooth and well balanced. I have yet to have an AV brew that doesnt impress. Well done.
