A sweet tasting beer. Crisp and refreshing.

Yellow colored body with a white head.

Smells like citrus, hops and honey.

Tastes hoppy with sweetness from the honey and a strong citrus finish.

Light mouthfeel, high carbonation.

I like to drink this beer once in a while. Very refreshing.

A: Transparent pale yellow with a half inch white head made of fine bubbles. The head vanishes to a fine layer on the top after a very short time. There is visible carbonation throughout.

S: Smells of wheat beer and clover honey.

T: Very wheaty taste. Honey is very slight on the after taste. Has almost a tart sensation to it.

M: Feels watery and lightly carbonated.

D: Although drinkable, not something I'd buy a full case of. I have six bottles from their Adventure Sampler and that's plenty for me.

Notes from 3/10/10 tasting. Bottle poured to tall European lager glass.

A-clear golden with big foamy head, settled but remained

S-kind of dank and skunky

T-light, sweet lager taste, but little of the honey

M-pretty good mouthfeel, light and refreshing, but nothing like a Weisse, Hefeweizen, or Krystalweisse

D-could definitely drink a few of these if I was in the mood, but not a great beer

Pours light pale yellow with foamy head...not a particularly attractive beer

Surprisingly attractive sweet spicey nose with nice wheat undertomes

Sweet and lite with a hint of sour. Not on overly discernable weis flavor

A little fizzy, but not a bad light refreshing beer.
