STOP! This beer is no longer made. If you had a bottle recently, it is the new Original Wheat version available in the Anchor mixed case.

It is light golden color with decent head formation and a very crisp, wheaty nose.

Thin body with some yeasty characteristics. Definitely a an american wheat rather than a german one. Nothing particularly exciting to say about this beer.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 A wonderfully crisp, refreshing wheat ale that draws upon many of the fine qualities of a pilsner, while adding a subtle ale character. Wheat malt, subtle lemon and apple fruitiness as well as a little honey precede a great crisp dry finish. It looks great too with impressive carbonation, clear filtered body and solid white foam. A quintessential summer brew.

This review is going from memory. I recall having this brew back around 1988. It was probably the first wheat beer I had tried. I do remember it having quite a distinct spicy, clove-like flavor, much like a Bavarian Weizen. Judging from the recent reviews however, it seems these tasty qualities are lacking in the current release. Iíd love to try it again, but itís not available here in N. FL.

A real disappointment. Quite an ordinary light ale.

My kingdom for some flavor! Yeah, itís got a pretty head. But it was basically water to my taste buds--there might have been a hint of malt on the palate, but it was too faint to distinguish.

Quick floral nose, yellow fizz w/ good head retention, bitter fairly dry, clean but not crisp.

A very good wheat beer, big wheat and malt nose upon resting, decent hop bite, very refreshing.
