Too sweet for the style. Should be served ice cold and drank quickly with hot pizza. tex (52) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2003
I thought it was missing a lot of the promised honey flavor. The Leinenkugel Hefeweisen is better. whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2003
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. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2003
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. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2003
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 DigsWierdBeer (11) - omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Much better than orginal Leinenkugels. Not very distinct otherwise.......... AndyOtremba99 (12) - Long Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Good taste but like all Leine's tastes much better out of the tap.......... NightOwl (45) - Midland, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2002
For once, an accurate commercial description. It's light alright... light in color, light on flavour, light on honey. It is crisp, but the lack of much honey flavour renders it indistinguishable from any other wheat beer. Better than many of its type, but still mediocre.
