I’m still mad they discontinued this beer! This is the most underrated beer of all time. I went out and bought the last 3 cases in town when I heard it was not coming back. I’m somewhat of a health nut, and this is one of the healthiest beers I’ve ever had. Budweiser made a great beer, and label. Just pissed it away with the marketing. Perfect blend of coriander, orange peel, and wheat. Coriander has plenty of benefits, as does orange peel. Low calories. Budweiser recommended me a Blue Moon. Blech! That a sugar orange syrup in a Budweiser. This is pure orange peel, feint in taste, perfectly blended. A nice spice to it. Refreshing, great taste! It’s a light beer, low calories, and a Wheat Ale. It should be rated according for this category. No low calorie beer comes close, no wheat ale comes close. Now I’ve gotta ration my remaining Bud Light Wheat! Dammmmit!!!

This was my favorite new beer until it disappeared off the shelves. Went great with my favorite food-pizza, and I liked the fact that it was relatively low in alcohol content. Still looking for a replacement. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an unfiltered yellow/orange with an off white head that looks frothy but doesn’t last. Nose is of wheat, yeast, and citrus. Citrus is barely detected in the flavor though. Tastes like wheat, yeast, and light malts. No hops to speak of. Watery mouth feel. This is very refreshing, and one of the absolute best light beers ever! Good job Anheuser-Busch!!

I loved this one, really sad its no longer available. Perfect for one who likes the Belgian-style wheat ales but is looking for a lighter, crisper taste or, as I was, about half the calories of a traditional unfiltered wheat ale. Like a lighter Blue Moon or something. I hope they bring this back one day.

A wheaty citrus golden smooth drinkability. Not bad, I think a summer beer probably. It will be A big seller.

Pours golden orange tinted, with a 1 inch head that last 3 minutes. The great carbonation holds maintains an 1/8" layer of foam on the top. Aroma of smooth full wheat malt, with a clean citrus hint. Flavor is a good blue moon competitor, but a little on the lighter side. It has a nice citrus,orange peel, wheat malt flavor and a hint of cilantro. The beer is full bodied and has a light but flavorful palate.

Pours cloudy which is normal for a wheat beer. Really a good beer considering it’s a Bud Light. Not as good as Blue Moon but a nice change from the cheap beers the Bud makes.

[draft on Budweiser tour] Pours bright orange. Medium white head. Flavor is pretty good, as the beer warms though..not so great. Still when cold, this beer is really good, and quite surprising coming from Bud.

12oz bottle obtained at Hannaford in Derry. Pours a hazy golden body with a thin film of short-lived off-white head. Smells faintly of lemmon grass, grapefruit, and spice. Tastes (surprisingly) strongly of orange and lemon, with some spice to round out the flavor, and a clean finish. Light-bodied with ample carbonation. I’m actually impressed! This is much better than I was expecting and I’d take this over a regular Bud Light (BL?) any day of the week.
