I expected a more complex flavor similar to the Honey brown, but I was wrong. Okay flavor, similar bite to a Miller Lite.

Yellow. I could not taste any honey or sweetness. Reminded me of a light beer. My first American Wheat, tastes like no other wheat beer I have had. Dont bother with this one.

Too sweet for the style. Should be served ice cold and drank quickly with hot pizza.

I thought it was missing a lot of the promised honey flavor. The Leinenkugel Hefeweisen is better.

It's alright from a bottle. For some reason, every time i have gotten this off tap it tastes just like miller lite. Not a compliment to any beer. It's simply not something i'd recommend to any beer drinker.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Had on tap near Chicago. I questioned if this was a wheat when the bartender gave it to me, tasted like a Bud. Several others around me also questioned if it was a Wheat or a Bud/Miller. It was clear in appearance. No aroma and no flavor. The only person who disagreed was the one who wanted a lemon wedge in his beer. Which at that point, if you are drinking a Bud, who wouldnt.
Re-rate: tried again, the first time was not a mistake, I could not tell the difference between this and a macro-lite.

This beer smell"s like a regular domestic beer, Bud for example. It doesn"t taste much better either. I think that I will pour it out in a minute. You can"t hardly even taste the honey in it. Oh well.

Not bad. It, like all Leinies, has a metallic taste to it. For being a honey lager you can't taste the honey.

Lots of fast rising bubbles. some big, some small. does this scream FAKE??? Nice thick, tight white head. Smells like corn with hints of hops and maybe some barley. Pleasant nonetheless. Watery and thin though, not a true wheat man

Much better than orginal Leinenkugels. Not very distinct otherwise.
