I've had this both in the bottle and on tap, and it's far superior in the latter style.

Really everything about this beer is boring except for the taste. It looks like beer and smells like beer. No more, no less.

That said, it's damn near unbeatable on a hot day. It's almost as light as a wheat beer. It manages to be crisp and clean, but still pack plenty of flavor. It's nice and malty, and they did a great job in not going overboard with the honey. It will be a staple in my fridge this summer, and my go-to at the pub for my first round on a hot day.
