2.78/5 rDev -7%
Appearance: Straw/gold color, small head, very little in terms of retention
Aroma: Mild, and at most..honey and grain.
Taste: Some grains, and sweetness from the honey...but overall it is pretty mild...I guess mild would be the nicer way of saying "bland", which is what I am leaning towards. Its not bad, but I'm not that impressed by it.
Mouthfeel: Light and carbonated..so it is "crisp" in some sense, but otherwise, nothing too special.
Drinkability: Taste is fairly unoffensive, and the mouthfeel is average, so this is good for this. I wouldn't have a huge problem with a couple of these, its just that I can get much better beers of the same style. Nothing special

Poured into a pint glass.
A-Pale yellow beer, filtered pristinely clear. A frothy, pristinely white head topped the beer and retained nicely. The beer looks to be highly carbonated, which was verified when I tasted.
S-Grainy with hints spicy hop. Subtle aroma, crisp.
T-Wheaty and a little grainy malt, but otherwise kind of blah. Some slight bitterness to counter the malts. Subtle honey character is barely perceptible.
M-As it appeared, the carbonation level is high, as is appropriate to wheat beers. Light-moderate body, at times feels just a little watery.
D-This would be an OK session beer, but it's not a spectacular brew. The flavor is rather plain, the characteristics are unremarkable. Regardless of this, I'll likely continue to drink it, as Leine's Honey Weiss is a staple throughout Minnesota and the Midwest. Not bad, but not good.

On-tap at the Vikes games for the same price (seven bucks) as lesser macro options. I mean, as macros and adjucncts go, this beer is pretty decent, but as an American wheat, it kind of sucks. The aroma has typical DMS/cooked corn like other Leinenkugel brews. The flavor does start out with a mix of Triscut-wheat taste and a drop of honey flavoring, but it's followed by adjunct off-flavors. To reiterate, for cheap beer, its not bad, for craft beer, it sucks.

A- pours a clear & light straw colored, big fizzy white head reduces to a small layer of foam that retains after the pour
S- faint toasted graininess with a metallic aroma, some muted banana and pear, otherwise rather adjunct-like
T- not much there at all. There are some traces of fruity pear notes, a clean and crisp malty backbone, a light citrus linger on the finish. Didn't really pick up any of the honey
M- light watery body with medium carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a slick, dry and crisp finish
O- filtering a Hefe seems to also filter out any flavor as well. This seems like it would be more fitting in a summer variety pack, it's easy to drink on a hot day but doesn't really fit in to a fall pack
