I used to remember liking this beer before I got into "real" craft beers so I was kind of excited to see how this one still held up.
Pours a rather unenthusiastic clear golden color with a slight hint of white head.
Aroma of faint citrus and honey. You pick up on the honey a bit more but it's still not enough to really grab you.
Taste is sweet. Sweet honey and citrus. perhaps even some sweet malt balancing and and wheaty finish. Kind of bland. Medium-light bodied. Wasn't the greatest but it isn't all that bad either. Still there would be other beers I would crave on a hot summer day.

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.
