From old tasting notes. Deep honey gold color. Big bubbly beige head. Rich, spicy wheat malt aroma. Dryish fruity malt flavor lingers on the palate. Bright grassy hop finish.

1.9
hauxe (937) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
Rated from old notes. No real wheat taste here. Grainy, a bit like a mass produced lager and with odd additives I could not identify. Avoid.

Very light summer wheat has nice head and amber color. Refreshing, but very light and simple. Rated 10/1/02

Pour Flat, no carbination, no head with. Head taste of honey and mild cloves. wheaty. Drinkable, not spectacular

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Seemed a bit off to me - sourish, but with a funky acidity that I didnt’ care for. Had some citrus and some wheaty malts.

sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Virtually flat pour. Light gold color. Light citrus nose. Light body, no carbonation, thin, watery. Faint malt and hop flavors. Medium dry finish. What a waste.

1.9
Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Pours a clear light amber with no head. Mild grain aroma. Thin mouthfeel. Wheat, bread, and citrus on the tongue. Watery finish. Watery and bland. Yuck!

3.4
guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2003
On tap. Had a clear, golden appearance. Nose was reserved, mostly wheat and other grains. Smooth, spicy taste with little bitterness despite a hop presence. Well carbonated. Malty finish.

American Wheat is the worst style of beer. I think I actually prefer American Standard. Or even Japanese Dry. This one is well made--the malt has a tiny bit of complexity. But wheat without a good yeast is simply worthless.
