2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a pale straw color with a foamy, bright white head that shrunk to a thin sheet in moments. The nose was sweet and musty with caramel, wheat, rice and corn. The taste started with an wheaty/oakiness followed by a welcome sweetness that tried to balance out the unpleasant, astringent-esque, wooddiness. The end had a dark tasting bitterness and was followed by a mustiness that seemed to last from beginning to end. The mouthfeel was light and the CO2 was a little coarse. Although light and drinkable, I had no desire to try this again. A disappointing offering from Anchor. Maybe my expectations were too high.

I love this stuff. My local 19th hole got this as a mistake many years ago and I went back every night to get more. I am so bummed that Anchor is no longer producing this one as it is one of the best American-brewed Hefeweizens Iíve ever had. Good hearty flavor, rich texture, even better with a slice of orange floating on top.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden and clear with a fizzy head. Smells of caramel, some wheat, hints of underlying sweetness. Tastes crisp and dry with just a hints of underlying sweetness but otherwise not much else to speak of. Mouthfeel is thin with a finish that is crisp. Inoffensive and bland compared to just about all their other offerings.

Nice wheat beer. An americanized version of the bavarian original. Itís ok. Is clean, with decent body and finish. Just like the bavarians much better. standard appearance. Having this on draft at Bodega Brew Pub, downtown La Crosse, WI.

Very bland, a drinkable brew, but so uncharacteristic of a wheat beer, not much flavor, abit sweet, but probably my least favorite Anchor beer.

Not a terribly bad beer. A summer wheat beer. Not much to say about it, but it sure isnít a bad one. Give it a try! Wheaty.

I can see why Anchor retired this one, a so-so ale with little but its creamy thick head to redeem it. The aroma is a soft caramel and wheat, a little musty. Thin and slightly oily to the palate, the flavor is mildly sweet wheat with a modest bitter, sour finish. I donít know where the folk at Salís found this, but they could have kept it hidden for my visit.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2004 On tap. Poured a light yellow with a white head. Subtle aromas and tastes of wheat, fruits and lemons. Thinner body. Nothing special about this one.
