On tap at Hops and Pie. Orange color, alright head. Interesting aroma that has only the mildest notes of honey but then something else I can;t place. Not bad. Flavor was yeasty with a bit of honey wheat bread aspect to it. very drinkable and I liked it better than the farmer's reserve blackberry.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Pours a hazy golden color with a full two fingers of foamy off-white head. Retention lasts a few minutes and lots of carbonation bubbles continue to rise. Leaves thick lacing.

S - Yeast and malt with a little bit of spice. Not getting much honey.

T - Lots of spicy, earthy notes. A hint of sweetness, but it does not linger.

M - Very thin mouthfeel. Lots of carbonation. Bright and crisp on the tongue.

O - The aroma and taste of this beer are pretty good, but the mouthfeel leaves a bit to be desired.
