2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear light amber, significant head, but minimal aroma - some wet malt and slight orange zest, but not much. Flavours are very thin - could be considered mild, but this one seems to be more lacking any real flavour at all. Sour raisins, wet wheat and cardboard are about all I could find.

Pours a very light yellow color with a thin white head. Very light and crisp, slightly sweet with a dry finish. A refreshing change from all of the typical American wheats, except its really a little bland.

I’m shocked that this was retired because I just bought it a few days ago.
I’m also SHOCKED that it is a 3% brew. I will never buy it again.
A sub standard wheat in every respect. To bad, I’m a big fan of Anchor.

Damn. As high as my appreciation is for Anchor, this one just does NOT do it for me. Thin, watery body and just not much beyond that. Recall those many years ago when I first got all excited about seeing it come in ... and then I tried it. Professed lover of the German style. Or other more aggressive American (or Belgian) styles. I'll go for a Liberty, though ....

Bottle. Pale yellow colored. Same damn thing as the Summer. Not good. Some wheat and malt in the aroma. No great taste. Very thin flavor. Not that great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted from sloped 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. This is their older, weaker ABV wheat beer. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with deep, fluffy white foam. Aromas of grain, French bread, faint flowery hops, pepper, clove. Flavour was smooth and slightly bready, some odd cidery notes. Light body, average carbonation, thin and watery mouthfeel, dry finish. It’s true this was crisp and refreshing, but not sure why Anchor bothered with such a weak and bland brew.

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

Bottle. Golden color. Medium head. As the description states, has a wheaty nose with light fruits. Light sweetness. Average carbonation. Crisp finish. A solid wheat beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pulled out of a mix Anchor 12-pack. It’s back.
Great finger and half of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is bold for a wheat beer. Pine and mild banana and pear.
The taste is mildly lemon bitter with softer wheat notes middle to end.
Smooth and soft texture with moderate carbonation.
