Leinies fails again. But at least this is better than the Berry Weiss.
Honey....barely.
Weiss...not at all (at least no discernable traits).
Pours golden with a quick-to-dissapear foamy head.
Funky sweet smell. Not honey...not really malty. Mostly just faint corn syrup.
Taste is virtually absent. Light malts...hops in the finish. Whatever...
Forget this one.
Leinies continues to be Wisconsin's bastard son.
In some odd way...this beer reminds me of Corey Feldman. I am just not sure why this was/is popular around here.

This is a pretty popular beer up around these parts. Big full head. Light malt and lager type aroma. Clear and yellow-gold. Can't taste honey or wheat in the flavor. Really doesn't taste much different than a typical American lager, maybe even light beer. Occassionally get a hint of wheat, but not much beyond that. Some bitterness to the finish. Medium fullness and carbonation. Largely a summer thirst quencher. I'm sure this brewery can make a better beer than this.

Leinie Honey: this is arguably a Weiss beer, but it neither looks nor tastes like one. It has a sweet aroma, and a nice light taste that you can drink all day. But it is clear, and is nothing like any Weiss I’ve ever had, seen, or heard of. Try Sammy’s new Weiss if you want to get close to the style.

The flag-ship of their line I believe. At least it's the one everybody in MN goes for first. A good summer ale, sweet, nice light smell. A bit thicker than you'd expect, which is good. Goes well with large grinder sandwiches.
