Decent wheat beer. Guess I was expecting a little bit better flavor from an Anchor brew. Oh well, on to their porter!

Pours a nice deep gold with 3 fingers of head. Pretty typical wheat nose and flavor. If it was the first of its kind in the states, my hats off to them, but it’s a hard style to get to excited over.

hazy yellow, this wheat beer has a light aroma and flavor of fruit and a lemon twang. would be sessionable in summer, otherwise one I pass on. Good for what it is.

355ml bottle. Pours a filtered amber with a soapy white head. Recedes to nice lacing. smell is heavy wheat, a touch of lemongrass, fruits, and spice. Flavor is light and refreshing, heavy wheat character, mild bitterness in the finish, very grainy and full-malted. Refreshing beer.

A wheat beer that is bitter? Never had one before and don’t really need to have another.

Bottle. Wheat beers are just boring. Light, flavorless and uninteresting. Not offensive, but not for me either.

This is a pretty decent wheat beer. Light and crisp. Wheat and citrus flavors are understated. There is a slick finish to the mouthfeel.
