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.

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.

12oz bottle found in the back of my fridge! Pours a completely clouded pale yellow with a small white head. Some wheat, corn, grain and some funky grassy note on the nose. Flavor is similar with sweet corn and some cereal grain, I can’t believe this held up as well as it did....

Typical american wheat flavor, i.e. not all that wheaty. Sort of bummed me out b/c as I spied it on the shelf (in Chicago) I had delusions that it'd be tasty and be line a nice summer seasonal. It wasn't. Fairly dry and crisp with some hoppage. Looked good in the glass.

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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Pours with a clear golden body topped by a medium thick white sustaining head that leaves a good amount of lace. Slightly sweet malt aroma with a slightly lemony hop accent. Not a nose charateristic of a wheat beer. Sweet yet sour fruity (apple) flavor with lemony notes. Good but not characteristic of a wheat. Light bodied and tingling on the tongue from the carbonation.

Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Crisp and exceptionally clean. Only a hint of 'standard' wheatiness in the aroma; otherwise just rather plain. But a well-crafted, easy-drinking plain it is. Could be a wonderful starter wheat for a novice. Whatever the case, I've never seen this before; bought it at a tiny store in Deerfield, IL. Fit the bill on a hot summer day, after a couple of hours in the park with the kids.

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.

Very bland, a drinkable brew, but so uncharacteristic of a wheat beer, not much flavor, abit sweet, but probably my least favorite Anchor beer.
