I had to get a bottle of this so I could see why it was so terrible. I kid! Here comes a review with the open-est mind I can muster...
Looks to be an orange, apricot color with a light, chilly haze that makes me try to wipe condensation off my pint that isn't there. The head is an irregular film of tiny bubbles, sustained by a fleet of little bubbles rushing up in columns from the bottom.
Smell is non-existent! After a few sniffs, I began to wonder if I had a head cold. Upon further review and a little beer on/up my nose, I detect musky old basement and corn chips mixed with ambiguous citrus zest and cheap triple sec. Even if this was prominent, it would still be repulsive.
The flavor definitely reminds me of bud, with old corn chips and mold, but this has a more prominent slick graininess, that reminds me a bit of a hefe. Sadly, the "spices" taste very artificial, like cheap, fake, orange candy and orange zest followed by a hint of... maybe nutmeg. It's some indistinct spice (that probably isn't real).
Feels bold and silky with a gentle swarm of carbonation that is really quite well done. But, this leaves an odd film in my mouth.
This isn't really too bad and definitely a step up from Bud light regular. I don't think I'll ever try this again, but it was worth the experience.

I remember when this beer came out on the market. It was a non filtered wheat beer bud Anheuser Busch. It was a light brown in color. Not a bad taste. It was something different than the every day bud light or Budweiser. It is a shame they do not brew this beer anymore. This beer was an easy drinking drak light beer. I also remember you had to roll the bottle because beer had stuff floating in the bottom. Overall I gave this beer a 3
