12-oz bottle into weizen glass

A - crystal-clear straw yellow body under a finger-and-a-half of pure white bubbly foam; very carbonated; not how I prefer a beer to look, but certainly on par for the style; head is short-lived and leaves not a trace of lace

S - grass, faint fruitiness, flowery notes

T - honey-sweetened wheat, citrus, bittersweet citrusy finish

M - light/medium body, high carbonation, crisp and refreshing

O - not bad for a pale wheat

not a bad honey wheat beer, and a decent summer drink. pours less cloudy than the standard blue moon, but there is still plenty of hazy under a one inch white head. smells like a wheat beer, malty, unfiltered, and a touch sweet. floral from the honey. flavor is similar, crisp though, and there isnt much sweetness. there is the essence of honey without all the sugar at the end. feel is not bad, lighter medium body, very sessionable with good carbonation. perhaps just a bit thin for me, but it adds to drinkability. overall i think this is my favorite of the blue moon seasonals, but still not a standout by any stretch of the imagination.

This is one of the most difficult beers to drink. I felt like I could spread if over my toast in the morning. Not one part of this beverage reminded me of beer whatsoever. I felt like I was choking down spoonful after spoonful of straight honey. Maybe I'm not into overly sweet beers. This is beyond overly sweet though. Two people together couldn't finish a 6 pack of this and it was a hot day trapped on a bus. That says a lot.
