Had to check through some reviews to make sure this was the right beer... looks like it.

Pours quite clear for a wheat. Maybe a touch cloudy. Pale straw color with the tiniest white film on top. No lace.
Aroma is lightly wheat like with a hint of citrusy tang.
Again wheat and citrus, but very light on the wheat. Citrus flavor is somewhat lemony, and there is a lightly bittering quality in there that is quicly washed away by the sweetness in the beer.
Light bodied and nicely carbonated. Refreshing finish.
Very drinkable, but I failed to notice any honey traces at all. Probably a good summertime referesher/lawnmower beer.

Cheap looking beer that has shown up at the local Von's.

This pours a hazy light brown colored beer without much lasting head but it does have a little.

Smell is sweet and malty with an aroma of rye or wheat bran with some scorched sugar aromas. Fair amount of fruity aroma mostly plums. Fruity smell and the bran aroma makes me wonder if maybe buckwheat honey was used in this.

Taste is slightly sweet and very much like raw grain with caramelized sugar added. Fairly good bitterness level and quite a bit of raw grain husk flavor present. There is a slight trace of oxidized malt in this if you taste for it, bit of cardboard flavor at the end. Not a bad tasting beer at all about on the same level as Pyramid.

Mouthfeel is good.

Well this was a nice surprise; it is much better than the swill I expected in the glass. Pretty much this is a competent factory made beer on about the same level as Pyramid. FAR better than any of the macro-brews on the big three brews at the supermarket excepting Blue moon. This will not be replacing Firestone Pale Ale as my regular beer but it tastes FAR better than I expected from a $5.99 a six pack beer from the grocery store.

1.58/5  rDev -38.3%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a tall glass.

NOTE: It appears that the name of this beer has changed to "Honey Weiss" (along with the label design) and that the brewery has relocated to Cold Spring, MN. It would be too close a coincidence otherwise, given the assortment of beers from this same brewery at the store...

Appearance: Pours a fairly dark yellow/light amber color, with a 1-in. foamy head. Lots of carbonation at first. Most of the head fizzes off fairly quickly.

Smell: Aroma is a bit faint, but seems to be a bit of mildly bitter hops and honey. Fairly sweet, but a bit sickening.

Taste: Like the taste, but at least it's not sickening. Slight bit of grains and a strange honey-like taste. Swallowing it, it has that same nasty taste as found in many beers from the major breweries. The good news? The taste isn't too strong.

Mouthfeel: Admittedly better than some things, but it's very light-bodied and feels way too thin. Very flat texture as well. Water feels better.

Drinkability: Alcohol is hardly noticable, but the taste is just so annoying and bad that it's not very drinkable.

The beer looks alright, but aside from that it's worthless. The smell, taste, and feel are bad, but thankfully not quite downright obnoxious. Suffice to say I won't ever buy this again.

Pours a golden yellow color, darker than most beer. Small amount of head for how heavy I poured it into my pint glass. Leaves very little head, but has a decent amount of bubbles flowing up, more than I'm used to. Smell is sweet. Malty and you can detect hints of the honey. Once I tasted this beer I was a bit turned off by the amount of honey taste that is present. I'd like to taste more beer. Feels nice in mouth, very smooth with no stinging carbonation at all. Overall I like this beer for it's smoothness and color, but a bit too much honey.

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

Pours a wheat/straw color, very clear and with lots of carbonation/bubbles. There is a very small, thin white head that dissipates quickly leaving little or no lace. The smell is sweet honey with a fruity, grassy background aroma. The taste follows the smell with a sweet honey, but, also some spicy apples. Not a bad beer, but, nothing special. I would call it similar to an above average american macro, with a few unique qualities.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Straw colored with a nice white head and good carbonation. Light grainy and lightly sweet honey aroma. Sweet malty flavor and light/litlle honey notes with some grainy character. Light bodied but closer to medium and smooth.

Not enough honey or wheat to really stand out.

Label states "Honey brewed lager"

($4.29 / 6-pack)

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

A golden yellow on the pour with a decent sized head, the texture bubbly, white in color and the corresponding lace a thin sheet upon the glass. Nose is honey sweet, lots of malt, start overly sweet, skeletal top. Finish is thinly carbonated, the hops sparse in their spiciness, weak and watery to my palate, dry aftertaste and totally forgettable.

Light gold color, small white foamy head. Aroma is grainy with a huge dose of honey. A light bodied wheat beer, lager style, slightly hopped. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, very little bitterness. Much better than the berry wheat
