look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

12 oz. bottle dated best by Nov. of an unspecified year. Probably the last bottling of this. Poured into a CBS snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden amber body. No head. No bubbles. Lots of legs. Looks sweet.

Smell - Honey and sugars dominate. Lots of light malts. Booze. Some hops. But it's all an afterthought to a sweet malt base.

Taste - Wheat is really an afterthought to this beer. Lots of ridiculously sweet malts. No complexity. Some harsh grainy aspects from the wheat. It's not pleasant to drink. Finishes sweet and just a bit bitter.

Mouthfeel - Sugary. Sweet and thick. Boozy still. Ugh. Nothing off about it, but just really sweet and one-dimensional.

Overall - Nothing interesting here. A glass of sugar. Some wheat comes through but it's mostly sugar. I'm glad they discontinued this.
