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

Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Smells slightly of honey and a bit of grain. Taste initially begins with some honey flavor, then some sweet wheat, and a touch of earthy, nuttiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is average. Overall a decent beer.

On tap at the brewery in Estes Park, CO. Pours clear-golden with white, short lived head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is biscuit malt, honey and hint of hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is sweet honey, pale malt and slight hints of hops. Finish is short and sweet. Forgettable brew.

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

Poured into a standard pint glass.

The beer is a quite solid light honey color, appropriately. A fizzy white head disappears quickly leaving only the faintest wisp of anything on top. Little or no lacing exists.

Smells of honey, wheat, cereal grains.

The beer tastes of sweet honey and subtle malts at first. There's a faint cherry note coming through in the finish. Cereal grains round out the body.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated and dry.

Overall, I think I enjoyed this when I first started drinking it. I think in the long run, it's a bit too carbonated, but I do not regret going through a sixer either.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a weizen glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a semi-transparent honey golden color with absolutely no discernible head, even after an aggressive pour. To say it's unappealing is an understatement.

S - Stale cereal grain, understated honey, and some very light floral notes. Mild strength, pleasant, but boring.

T - Though it's entirely too mild, I do like the honey flavor its got. Really, that is the only flavor however. It's watery, simple, and built haphazardly.

M - Flat, watery, and completely wrong.

D - My first beer from the brewery, and it definitely doesn't excite me to try more. A pretty poor one.

i liked this one a lot. the clover honey flavor is more prominent than any other honey wheat brew ive come across. its not sweet, just rather floral and flavorful. the honey and the wheat malts compliment eachother perfectly in my opinion, and this one feels like a well crafted ale. mouthfeel is good too, light and crisp and really sessionable. itd be a great summer beer, but it also works well all year round. curious to try more estes park brews!

The color is a hazy dark orange. Barely a head on top, white and soapy looking. . .

Smell is almost nonexistent , some peach a slight honey lilt to it thats it.

Tastes of dust and unnameable grains, obviously wheat but you can't decipher that. Honey is definitely there in spirit, mimicking the aroma but without too much actual presence.

Mouth feel is wet and light carbonation like soda

I would not recommend this to anyone, it is boring and while not off-putting, it brings nothing to the table at least I only got one in a make your own sixer
