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

Bottle purchased in a Leinie's Explorer Pack (variety box) from BevMo Cypress.

A: Rambunctious head fizzles up instantly and dies back down within minutes. White foam with large bubbles. Ale is filtered and clear, the color a very light yellow.

S: Grainy, almost corny, with a mild honey sweetness.

T: Tastes like a macro-lager sweetened with honey. Moderate bitterness, though it seems more to come from the alcohol than any hops. Not particularly distasteful; good compared to mass market beer, but little resemblance to a wheat craft beer.

M: Light body with somewhat high carbonation, quite appopriate for the style, though clashes somewhat with the flavor profile.

D: While a poor example of what a "honey weiss" should taste like, this is quite drinkable. I could probably drink a few of these at a party or something instead of a whatever light.
