    I cannot begin to describe how nasty this was. I was working at BJ's PAckage Liquor when I tried this. The distributor came in all proud of it and such. He took a bottle and two paper cups, one for myself, the other for my boss. Needless to say, we both hated it. Pathetic wheat beer.

    Dark yellow/orange pour with minimal carbonation. There is a stale citrus aftertaste that really makes this a tough beer to finish. Will avoid in the future.

    a good smooth wheat beer with a full wheat flavor and I mean full which might be a downfall but not much of one the only thing is on the back it says to roll beer to mix unfilterd wheat from settling they should put that in big bold letters on the front because that last swallow is a rough one if ya dont

    What to use to make a Cheddar-Beer soup?. Let’s try the Bud Light Golden Wheat. A cloudy orange colored beer. Small foamy textured white heat. But it had the big carbonation I needed for the soup. The aroma is citrus and wheat. Just what I need. The body is on the light side, but there is a creaminess in there. The taste is more grains, as one would come to expect from this macro brewery.

    A wheat attempt from bud light, pour great,nice foam top.Not much aromas at all, the taste was ok.I could barely detect the coriander and citrus. Had great color for a light wheat beer.So much like the original BL not sure its worth seeking it out.

    What can I say it is a bud product that is trying to take on some craft beer market. This alone makes me want to not try it but my wife liked it so I tried. It, It smells like looks like a and feels like a bud light but I will say that the taste is ok and a little bit of citrus and coriander. I want to not like it but I cannot say it is horrible. It has a nice wheaty flavor, with the fruity aftertaste. Not great but for an intro to a wheat beer it is not horrible.

    this was 1.25 happy hour special whilst waiting for my wings, so...what the hell. the paintball commercial is just great! anyway...aroma was still skunky. the coriander & citrus tried to come out, but the skunk overpowered them. too bad. appearance a little transparent, but there was actually yeast on the bottom. cool. mouthfeel still sucked. fizzy and thin. gave me gas almost immediately. flavor a slight pleasant surprise. some ornage and spice. not really any wheat. still too light and boring but not revolting. it actually was almost average, which says a ton for BL. not something I'll get again, but BLs best product to date.

    Tastes like a Bud light that's trying to imitate the taste of a Samuel Adams light. The only difference in this version of Bud light is that it's taste is just a little smoother. To me it just pales in comparison to a real beer. How about a Golden Wheat Budweiser? ...
