Poured into a weizen glass. Poured a hazy cloudy amber, with a generous 3 finger white frothy head. Plentiful streams of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma was pretty much as described, initial blast of lemon citrus scent. As it mellowed out, the honey sweet could be detected. Taste was initially a bit bland and watery. Shifted to a lemonade flavor that was fairly well balanced, not overly tart or sweet. Not a bad flavor, but I don't think it fits the wheat ale style well. Coated ok, a tad sticky. Overall a good shandy, but not really what I would expect of in a wheat ale.

Here it is, a little over a year since I became Curious and now I am becoming Tenacious.
From the bottle: "Ale brewed with Lemon Peel with Natural Flavors, Honey, & Ginger added"; "Quite a refresher!"
Once again, this series has a propensity to foam up in an explosive manner and so one's pour must be somewhat gentle as a result (unless you like beer foaming up and out of your glass). Four pours later, the bottle was empty and the glass held two fingers of big, dense, foamy, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was a murky yellowish-orange (SRM = > 7, < 9). It may be subliminal suggestion, but I swear that I really could smell lemon, honey and ginger on the nose! It was like smelling a Hall's cough drop. I do not mean that to be funny, but that is of what I was immediately reminded. Mouthfeel was full, bubbly and the flavors were all there, present and accountable. I think that they could dial the honey back some, though, as it was getting in the way of the lemon tartness, especially and even muting the spice of the ginger, rendering it sweeter than I would prefer. That said, of the three of the Travelers that I have had, this would probably be the one that I would reach for on a hot summer's day. The finish was crisp and refreshing, semi-dry, let's call it. Not bad, but not precisely my cup of tea, either.
