look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Depp golden in color, with a small white head, which quickly fades to a dusting of foam on the surface, and a small rime of foam lining the glass walls. The lacing is slight and fine-beaded.
Aroma: Prominent white bread notes, a slight clover honey note, and a ghostly bit of orange peel.
Taste: Prominent wheat flavor throughout, with a wave of honey atop the wheat. The honey actually dominates the flavor throughout, and lingers on past the end of the taste. The orange rind, sad to say seemed absent. The finish was dry, as befits a honey-flavored beer.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full, with no noticeable carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Not terrible, but not up to the level of good craft beer. Still, it beats a macro lager hands down.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass longneck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a Chimay chalice.
Serving type: bottle

poured from the bottle into a Weizen glass
A - Pours a straw-gold capped by a one-finger astringent head. Streams of carbonation can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Head is gone half way down the glass.
S - Really not much upon opening the bottle save a little bit of wheat malt and tiny amount of orange peel. Smell becomes a bit more pronounced in the glass and open up a bit touches of honey love as promised.
T - Starts off fine with honey and wheat malt. In the body the honey really takes over and almost seem sickly sweet in contrast to the light hops and wheat backbone. This dichotomy grows as the beer passes over the back of the tongue and hop notes become more pronounced. Honey, orange rind and stale wheat malt finish.
M - On the heavier side of light bodied with substantial carbonation. Fizzy and slightly creamy as it passes over the back of the tongue, this is actually the best part of the beer by far.
It tastes about like they just poured Honey into the standard Blue moon. This ends of being more of a bad thing as the coriander is lost and replaced with sticky sweetness that almost seems out of place. The decent mouthfeel is the only redeeming quality of this beer, which I suspect will never purchase again unless it (again) finds its way into a variety pack on sale. Life is too short to drink mediocre beer.
