Nothing spectacular about this one. Personally, I like the smooth, refreshingness of the honey wheat beer. So I have no problem putting these down. Would I buy a six pack for myself? Nah. It's kind of dull, but it seems like it would have mass appeal if it were more widely available.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Very pale and crystal clear, straw yellow in color, with about a 1" white foamy head. Retention was pretty good, taking several minutes to recede to a nice layer of bubbles. Light lacing.

S: An odd, yet interesting, fruity smell, sort of a white grape juice smell. If you're looking, you might get a hint of wheat too.

T&M: Incredibly light weight, and light in flavor. A bit on the dry side and rather well balanced. Carbonation is relatively high but with fine bubbles making the texture a little less than smooth. One thing that seems good about this is that the body and finish have pretty solid flavor and doesn't go watery like many others. Finish is quick, light, and lingers just a bit dry.

D: Light. Interesting light complexity. Basically enjoyable and relatively thirst quenching. Not bad.

Poured a pale golden color with moderate white puffy head.
Smell is very light with only a touch of sweetness.
Taste is on the sweet side, and the honey adds to this sweetness.
Finishes with more sweetness.
This beer is easy to drink. Because of the sweetness, one is enough.

This beer pours a clear yellow with half-inch head and lasting lace. The aroma is of citrus, honey, and flowers. It's flavor has lemon, vanilla, and honey notes. Well balanced. The mouthfeel is light and smooth. Leinenkugels Honey Wheat is a good beer, very dry, crisp, and refreshing. Recommended.

Poured into a pint.

A: Bright but thin straw color. Medium carbonation pours into a slight white bubbly head which quickly dissipates leaving a smattering of bubbles on the surface. Pretty substantial carbonation continues to rise throughout. No real lacing.

S: A little malt, wheat, yeast, prominent lemon, and a touch of honey.

T: Wheat and yeast. Hoppy and lemony.

M: Light body, sharp, and a bit of a metallic aftertaste.

D: Light body, refreshing body with a decent flavor make for good drinkability.

Decent atmosphere. A nice distinctive nose. Flavor is decent, but the honey (as the name suggests) doesn't really come out in the flavor. Feel is okay. When it's all said and done, a solid quaff.
