On Monday I asked you to help me with my difficult job and taste some beer. Now, the particular beer in question was Bud Light Wheat, the type of watery, NFL-commercial dishwater that keeps people who would enjoy a good wheat beer from ever trying a Weihenstephaner or Hoegaarden or Allagash White. But I wanted to give ol’ Anheuser-Busch InBev a shot, and y’all obliged. Some of you even liked it:
@Buffalo_Theory: @beerspotter bud light wheat=No Allagash/BlueMoon but better than I thought. works in a macro-pinch. light wheat flavor;too filtered though.
Lauren: Bud Light Wheat is really good. I like the fact that you can have the wheat flavor without all of the calories. After a few Blue Moons, they start to weigh you down. I think Bud Light Wheat is a great alternative. Make sure to put an orange in it.
Some of you were lukewarm on it:
@CoreyCallahan: @beerspotter Definitely no Blue Moon. Note to “Budweiser” – STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW.
@DaveHofman: @beerspotter BLW, I’m sure it will be a hit during the warmer months at picnics or ballgames. I’d drink it over BL or ML but not much else
But Dazey2 wins the comment contest with their distinctly unimpressed impression — and the self-proclaimed loser becomes a victor!
I have tried it! I was that loser who ordered it at RFD’s. I feel like the main difference between Bud Light and Bud Light Wheat was the label. And the darker tint of color. Other than that, I don’t remember anything that specifically stood out to make the Wheat taste significantly different.
