They call this a honey weiss, it's basically a deep pale golden hue with a bright white head that dies quickly to nothing but speckled lacing. Aroma is minimal very muted sharp wheat notes with little to no citrus or honey notes. Thin body easy to sip on but the wheat notes give it some actual nice breadiness, I don't get much in the way of honey on the palate, a bit of hash grainy character in the finish. A touch of fruit, maybe at this point I will call it citrus. Mouthfeel has heavy carbonation but a lighter body, adding to some unnatural effervescence. Overall, the beer is unlike any other beer, out there a wheat beer that is crystal clear and tastes clean like basically nothing.
