The beer upon its extrication from the 12-ounce brown bottle pours a murky golden amber color with the head modest in size, frothy in texture and the color a bright white, the lace forms a fine sheet to surround the glass. Nose is sweet with honey and malted grain, crisp and fresh to the senses, start is nicely malt laden, sweet and the top light to middling in feel. Finish is personably acidic; the hops present and accounted for, a nice beer, a crying shame I only get it once every 2 or 3 years.

Golden color, medium white foamy head. Aroma is grainy and sweet. Mildly hopped, nicely balanced wheat beer. Slight sweetness from the honey. Finish is very clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, no noticeable honey sweetness. A crisp and light honey wheat beer.

Pours a golden honey coled hue, with a tight white head. Smooth and refreshing, I wish it was summer, because this would be a damn refreshing beer in the summer. The beer has a mild wheat flavor with a nice sweetness from the honey. Very drinkable brew. Thanks goes out to my Brother, who brought me this sample from Alaska.

Fairly decent bier....Nice golden color; clear, but with hardly any head or lace, even after a hard-pour. Hoppy nose, with some sweetness mildly evident, and citrus-notes too. Found a smidgen thin, but ok on the tongue as far as carbonation goes. Mild flavor, some sweetness, even some spiciness (?), ending on the lemony hop side. A tad weak overall, but still not bad.

This wheat ale has a nice honey smell and sweet taste. Tried it in the bottle and also on tap at the brewery. The beer is light in body, as expected, but not light on taste. Quite good.
