Notes taken on 08/30/14

A: Golden honey blonde color. Imagine that. Great conditioning results in a nice clear body. Topped with some playful cotton white fluff that bounces about until finally settling out to a few chunky swirls. Lots of sticky lace touching the glass after every sip.

S: Smells of bready malts with a light graininess to it. More doughy and pie crust like with a definite honey nectar sweetness coming through. There is dash of grassy hops noted as well. Nicely present with the honey.

T: Golden malts with some mild graininess, floral honey, and a dash of earthy hops. Softly toasted with a lower perceived bitterness. Comes together much like honey graham cracker. On the sweeter side while remaining dry and light in the finish. A nice little creamy session here.

M: Very light in body with a creamy texture and mild amount of actual bitterness. Finishes dry, crisp, and fairly clean overall.

D: Good but not great. Not big on wheat beers in general but the fresh honey flavor is a nice touch. A tad more sweet than I would prefer although the drying finish saves it. Really not that bad at all.

Quite a lovely shade of amber with a distinct honey aroma. the foam piles up but evaporates rather quickly. The mouthfeel is plenty sparkly.

The flavor is just slightly sweet with a darker taste than you'd expect from honey. It's more of a dark wildflower taste than clover. Something like alfalfa. Rather malty with a tangy hop ending. Just a slight bitterish edge.

I have to rate this higher for being in such a dismal category, and in any case this is one of the better honey beers I've had. The flavor and aroma are full of the stuff, but overall it's restrained and thoroughly drinkable. I didn't even think "American wheat." From the 22 oz bottle bought at Belching Beaver's tasting room on 30th Street.

Bought this in a 22oz bomber. I pours a nice cloudy, straw yellow with a modest head. Little-to-no lacing. Aroma is a mixture of honey and subtle hop. Taste is nice, smooth honey flavor--not nearly as sweet as I would have thought. The honey gives way to a nice biscuit malt palate, followed by a subtle hop bitterness. Overall, a thoroughly refreshing beer.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, hay, grass, and slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, biscuit, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a subtle honey presence that doesn't add much to the beer in my opinion.
