Pours a crystal clear pale yellow. Fluffy head fades fast; no lace sticks. Looks like a pilsner.
Not much aroma to speak of. There's some corn with faint honey.
Taste is unimpressive. The touch of honey is overpowered by an odd, harsh bitterness.
The unpleasant bitterness results in low drinkability.

This is on odd beer. Doesn't look, smell, or taste like a wheat. Not even an American wheat. Buy a single, not a six pack.

Drank a ton of this back in the day, had another recently to confirm my thoughts. Meh. Good clarity, lots of carbonation. Smell was of nutrisweet and sawdust.

Taste, like diet tea, toffee, nutrisweet. One of my least favotite offerings from Leinies, and I subscribe to the thought process of Leinie Red = Leinie Feet.

Can't believe this stuff is going for $7+ a 6er now, not worth it at even half that price.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Extremely clean pour and appearance, even for a kristalweisen, with a short lived and lacy head.s

No hint of honey in the smell or the taste. I kind of expected that in a Honey Weiss.

More bitter than I expected for a Honey Weiss with a shot of hops in the aftertaste.

Dry finish. Could probably drink it on the hottest of July days, but only if nothing else was available.
