Back in 1995, there was a beer called Crossroads that Anheuser-Busch briefly tried but never made into full production. I'm looking for a way to recreate the recipe and here's all I can find for a description using an internet search.
"Crossroads is a cloudy, unfiltered beer that uses wheat malt instead of the barley malt used in traditional beers, and a top-fermenting Hefeweizen (or German) yeast instead of the bottom-or middle-fermenting yeast used in traditional lagers and ales. The result is a beer with an "almost fruity or clovey taste" and high effervescence that has a very clear finish and little to no after taste, according to Paul Stoddart, Crossroads senior brand manager at Anheuser-Busch."
Does anyone remember this beer and know what beers are similar? I think the NB Bavarian Hefeweizen is in the neighborhood but it's not quite the same. I remember Crossroads having a creamy vanilla finish that I really enjoyed.
