Poured from a 12oz bottle gotten from my AB rep.
A- Pours a hazy darker golden orange which lightens up when held to the light. Kind of a hard pour (I sneezed) results in a 3 finger murky eggshell white head that dies pretty fast. Soapy lacing on the sides which tends to stick for a second and begin to fall. Overall this is a good looking beer...kind of surprised to be honest.
S- This is where the beer might begin to go downhill. I get a distinct corny Bud Light hint coming off this beer. This is mixed in with a stronger wheat (bread dough) smell. It covers it up pretty good. Also there is a hint of citrus to this and something else I can't put my finger on...must be some other spice but it is so faint it doesn't even matter. This beer might not have the biggest of aroma it does have a slight one and it's not of an typical Bud Light product.
T- Well this is where the beer falls off big time. Upon first sip I was shocked as there was really no big wheat taste to it at all. There was a lager taste with it being super fizzy. I get hints of wheat here and there on the tail end of the beer but from the first part of the sip it is more or less just a watery version of maybe Bud but not really Bud Light. There is a slight citrus flavor in the tail end of this too. This has turned out to be a very watery and bland tasting beer. I knew there was going to be a catch somewhere!
M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is too much for the beer but falls in line with the rest of their product line. Watery mouthfeel while on the palate makes it a easy drinker. Slight wheaty taste is left on the palate once the beer goes down. A light wheat aftertaste is present as well.
D- This is a very drinkable beer. While this is better than well most Bud products I have had this still falls short of their intended mark I would hope. This is a very easy sipper when going out to the bar with friends or just relaxing on a warm day. Although I know this is not aimed toward me I might have one in a bar if this is the closet thing they have to a craft beer.

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
