A - Translucent sunburst with a nice, though quickly dissapating, snowy 2 finger head. Somewhat heavy carbonation. Practally no lacing.

S - Subdued. Though, Citrus and coriander come through the stongest.

T - Very good- which is so odd for me to say for this brand. In fact, I'm actually surprised by the quality of this beer. For the most part, I dispise macro brews, but this one is well done. Nothing tastes synthetic. It is very simplistic. This light wheat style brew is what it says- and, given it's cost, it delivers. Minus the clove and bananna bomb of course.

M - Clean, crisp, and dry. This is a very neat brew, with little aftertaste.

D - Amazing drinkability. The alcohol content on this one is quite low though.

To sum up, there are alot of negative reviews on this brew. To a certain degree, I can empathise with the disdain other advocates display regarding an offering such as this. However, I must judge this offering on what it is, not what it appears to be, nor to gain the acceptance of my collegues. My apologies.

Lets cut to the chase. Forget the politics; this isn't Duvel folks. Its not supposed to be and it isn't trying to be. Its not in the same catagory, nor is it in the same leauge. Therefore, one must judge this beer on its own merit. For what it is, this is not in any way, shape, or form a bad beer. Additionaly, if you factor in the price, this one is right on the money. Its not an A beer. Its not really even a B beer. However, it is a drinkable beer and probaly the one of the best of the cheaper macro brews.

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
