12 oz bottle. The beer is light golden in color with a 3-finger ivory colored head that has a solid composition to it. It is fairly turbid with a massive streaming carbonation apparent. The aroma is spicy orange, light lime zestyness, mild banana ester with a strong but not overpowering wheat backbone to bring all the spices under one dominion. I like the little lime bit that is playing in the background that gives it just a little kick. The flavor is a little strong in the alcohol, as that is the first flavor I get and it seems to mask everything else well in to the finish. A second sip finds some coriander spice and orange with a mild peppery spice that finishes with a mild sweetness and strong wheat maltyness. I still think the initial blast of boozyness takes a little away from it. Mouthfeel is moderate with a moderate carbonation of small bubbles. The finish is very drying on the sides of my tongue. Overall, this one packs a lot of flavor. I don't get much of the honey in either flavor or aroma. This one is nice, but one will do me fine for a while.
