I don't like to give beers a low rating ever but this is like someone took Syrup and water and fermented it out. This is one of the worst beers I have ever had in the world, and I have had Zima.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with 1/2 finger of head

S: Cloying sweetness, smells of a overly sweet candle fake smell. Horriable.

T: Light with no body, feels like I am drinking water, not beer. Actually like I am drinking a off cream soda with a sweet nasty off flavor.

M: Over carbonated, makes sense why would I want to taste this nasty thing.

O: Im not impressed. While there isn't a lot of sweet sugar flavor, their is absolutely no wheat character hop character for that matter. This is nothing like a wheat/ pale wheat/ light beer??, I'd go as far as to say it is undrinkable. If you love Coors you may enjoy this watery sweet junk.

355ml bottle from New Orleans:
Really disappointing stuff if I'm honest, easily the worst of the recent beers I've tried from the states; one that was just too plain & unexciting. An early sweetness opened things up but it wasn't anywhere near as strong as expected, some basic malts & corn with a touch of hay & wheat followed but nothing substantial to grabbed your attention. The palate was poor with the beer seeming bland & a touch thin; definitely one to avoid, there's just so much better out there to try first.

Very similar to Coors but a little heavier. It's refreshing with subtle honey flavor in the after taste.

Another thanks but no thanks to rudzud.

Light airy head, mostly clear light honey color.

Nose bad fermented wheat like it sat in the sun, weird rubbery thing to it, weird burnt grassy thing, grainy thing too.

Taste ew, bad fermented hay grass, light rubber again and burnt weeds, almost like chewing on a dandelion, with some weird wheat but not a ton, little skunky like flavor, weird bitterness. Light copper taste. Finish slight dry syrupy, more bad fermented wheat and hay, weird rubbery.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall blech.

Poured into a snifter

A: Golden amber with not much of a head, very little retention and very light lacing.

S: Light malts, grainy wheat

T: Watered down wheat with a few malts floating in the bayou. Very little sweetness. Just doesn't deliver.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation (the best part of the sip, sadly).

O: Recommended at Callandro's in Baton Rouge as a sessionable brew. As weak as a drought on a field of wheat. Avoid unless you just want to be bored.

Pour is a somewhat murky light brown, whole bunch of ground pepper shaped floaties. Aroma is sweet malt, that's just about it. Sweet malt taste, subtle honey. Pretty bland and one dimensional.
