2.75/5  rDev -7.7%

Clear gold color, with the head fading away instantly. Faint wheat malt aroma, no honey I can detect in the nose. Sweet cereal flavor, like a bland slightly sweetened breakfast ceral. A touch of honey flavor. Almost tasteless. Body is thin and watery.

Uninteresting, hardly more flavorful than sweet water.

Poured into a pint.

This beer pours a thin white head and the color is a straw yellow. The head dissipates quickly.

The honey was hardly detected. There was a strong hint of lemon zest as well. Some wheat flavors.

Mouthfeel is very thin and crisp, nothing major going on with this beer.

I could enjoy a few of these beers during the evening on a summer day if I wanted to. Nothing, I plan to buy a lot of.

Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss pours a golden yellow with a thin white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma reminds me of honey and cheap lager. I guess there is what you could call honey sweetness in the flavor. It also has a cheap lager type flavor to it. I'm not impressed.

Draught: This beer is a pale yellow color. I was expecting a large white fluffy head, but didn't get it. The aroma is somewhat non-descript. Some hints of sweetness, most likely from the honey. The taste is basically a little sweet, with a thinner body. Hops? I really didn't get any, but then again I've been drinking a lot of Imperial IPA's lately. Suprisingly, the beer was fairly satisfying: good for a hot day of drinking for no special reason.
