Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #33 (Oct 2009):
Times are a-changing ... the sacred Bud Light has been spun off, again, with a wheat and spiced theme similar to a Witbier, but really this is a Spiced Lager with coriander and citrus peel. Putting all skepticism aside ...
A lot darker than anticipated completely hazed, pale orange amber color with a good two fingers of head. Citrus peel and coriander in the nose, a hint of lemony wheat as well but still all a little faint. Very crisp and smooth with more body that a regular Bud Light--still light, though. Pleasing citrus and coriander with a quick snap of wheat, though the malt is thin throughout. Hops? With the addition of coriander, and the bitterness potential from it, we wouldn't be surprised if there were no hops--or, at the very least, single digit IBUs--but this isn't a hop-centric brew, so it doesn't matter. Exceptionally clean finish, with citric and coriander, that eventually faded away.
Not too shabby, but definitely marketed toward the non-beer drinker, or the light beer drinker, looking for just a bit more than Bud Light. Time will tell if this brand survives in the sea of trendy flavored beers.

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
