pours with small head that actually stays around for 20 seconds or so. Aroma slight hint of honey and alcohol smell. Appearence clear blonde color. Flovor was average. It's not a swill beer, but nothing there to really get your taste buds going. decent price at 5.99 a six. Could hardly taste the honey in this beer. I've had way better wheat beers before. Nothing special.

Poured a bottle of this into a glass mug.

A: Pours a light golden body that was slightly transparent with a white head with decent retention and minimal lacing.

S: Kind of a bittersweet, malt smell with some sour undertones. Nothing too overwhelming.

T: Not much of a taste at all. Kind of just tastes like a macro-beer, which is none too impressive.

M: A light mouthfeel that seemed overcarbonated as well. Nothing impressive.

D: Nothing too impressive or good. Just a thin, overcarbonated beer with no taste. I was not impressed at all with this one.

i was excited to see this for sale in philadelphia in a variety pack since i can only get the sunset wheat in new york . well the honey weisse was a big disappointment i mean big . there was nothing to this beer i think id even drink a rolling rock over this im just wondering if i got some bad ones because the red lager and sunset wheats in the pack were very nice . p.s the other beer in the pack was the creamy dark not that good either

Poured into a snow white head that disappated very fast. Very light yellow in color and brew was very clear. I dont know if Ive seen a more clearer beer or not. Virtually no lacing to speak of. Just a couple of white blothes here and there. Very light smelling. Maybe a little sweet honey. Tasted very light also. Had a little taste of honey and maybe a hint of lemon. but not much. Had a slightly bitter aftertaste. Felt ok in the mouth. It was almost like it had little or no carbonation. Very thin and watery. I dont think Ill buy these again. Really had no flavor to speak of. There was nothing to draw you back to the beer.

Appearance- Pours a very pale yellow colore with moderate carbonation and little foam.

Smell- Has a distinctive urine like odor mixed in with honey sweet.

Taste- Very bland but what taste there is of a combination of honey and water.

Mouthfeel- What, you can feel this on your palate?

Drinkability- Not so good, if not for its cheapness Id never buy this.
