I poured this beer into a perfect pint glass, it has a very small white fizzy head on it. The body is a nice golden color body. The smell is sweet of honey and some wheat. I don't taste any wheat, but i get a sweet start and a little hop finish to it, very crisp though. The mouth feel is nice and crisp on the tongue. Overall i think this is a good summer time beer.

A refreshing light-bodied ale that goes down easy

A- Very clear amber-yellow with thin, big-bubbled head

S- Smells a bit like honey along with a bottle/metal hint. Not much smell

T- Tastes great on the tongue with many sweet hints carried by light carbonation. After-taste is sorta bottle/metal.

M&D- Feels real good with a light-body and slight carbonation that downs easy

Overall, not a bad beer, but I expected more of a honey profile in the beer. There's a bit of honey in the nose but It's barely perceptible in the beer itself. Overall the beer is good, but the wife and I just didn't pick up much of it's namesake in the profile. It's very drinkable, but I'd rather have a sunset wheat if I had a choice.

In my opinion this is just a "good, solid" beer. It's not fantastic and won't set the world on fire, but it's good. I think it has a very clean flavor. The color is also good...more clear than I'd expect for a wheat beer. The smell is also good...I also smelled a yeast/wheat smell. The mouthfeel and drinkability are also good. Like I said...it's just a good, solid beer. I'll say it ranks as "better than most" in my book.
