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 I’ve ever had. Good hearty flavor, rich texture, even better with a slice of orange floating on top.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is wheat and apple. Appearance is crystal clear apricot with small off white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is wheat forward, light apple and lemon tartness. Light hop bitterness. Palate medium light, smooth and very crisp. Light fruit flavors linger with mild noble hop bitterness. Overall an excellent wheat beer. Clean and crisp with pleasant subdued fruit flavors.
Flyer that came with the pack says that this is a modern interpretation of the original wheat. I don’t think this beer is on ratebeer yet and we are rating the retired wheat beer. Flyer says this beer is 5.6%, much bigger than the original.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Is this a wheat beer? Tastes pretty good, but I wouldn’t try it again. Good summer drinking beer, but not enough flavor for me.

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.

Thin and only slightly hazy, this highly carbonated beer is light on the palate, a bit lemony, and very refreshing. I usually prefer the thicker, heartier American wheats, but this is a nice changeup, light on everything including alcohol.

Nice wheat beer. An americanized version of the bavarian original. It’s 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.
