Quite a foam in the all glass. Light amber color. Lovely sudsy mouthful. Aroma is seriously honey, and quite appealing.

The honey flavor, since you're thinking about it, is quite evident. Moderately sweet. The honey does a good job of making this four percent beer taste like it has more body and substance. Perfumey and fresh. Light and refreshing. A winner in the Utah supermarket beer category.

This particular bottle is six months beyond its "best by" date, but it seems to be perfectly clean in flavor. Maybe honey does have anti-bacterial qualities. Certainly one of the best honey-flavored brews I've had. Maybe the lighter, lower-alcohol approach works best. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.

So I see that this has a 3.03 overall rating! Well I'll do my part to help boost that. A few weeks back early October 2015 I heard Uinta was making a batch of hyve. Odd because it's out of season. Well I was at there facility today picking up a couple of bottles of jack be nimble for Halloween and asked about the new batch of hyve. He said the just finished it and he would run in back and get me a six pack if I wanted. Of coarse I did. So this is a really fresh batch of hyve. Beautiful color smells and taste of flowers and honey. I love it. Very refreshing even as the weather is turning cold. Thanks Uinta.

A - An aggressive pour displays a 1/2 inch white head that leaves pretty nice streaks of lacing. The body is an amber hued gold

S - Soapy grain, lager yeast, honey coated cereal.

T - Sweet cereal with honey edges. Reminds my of honey combs cereal. Sugary tea tannins as well as a touch of hops on the end. Finishes crisp and slick.

M - Light to medium bodied, good carbonation.

Honey is very present. Overall this is a really tasty brew, especially for the style. The finish could have been better though.

Pours an orange hued golden with a foamy white head and light lacing.

Fairly subtle all around. But crisp, clean crackery, grain malt notes with faint sweetness from the honey and malts and a lightly floral character as well.

Medium body, mild foamy carbonation.

A well done blonde ale, good for warm weather. Easy drinking, with an enjoyable flavor profile.

maybe a bit underrated on here. pours a deep golden honey color thats darker than expected. nose of sweet clover honey and crisp hops. flavor is similar to the nose, with the honey really popping out and the light malt profile keeping it around in the mouth for awhile. a bit of wheat in the flavor as well. feel is good, maybe a little bit flat, but very refreshing and drinkable. i has this in park city utah very shortly after a red rock honey wheat, and this one was exponentially better, with greater depth and feel. overall not an amazing beer, but a good outside drinking beer on a sunny spring day. would order this again if it was available in colorado, but i havnt seen this one around yet.

Pours close to two fingers of eggshell white microfoam, dissolves rapidly without much dimpling, leaves a thin coating of islands across the surface, curiously the thin lacing sticks in complete sheets down the glass sides and refuses to budge. The liquid is a light coppery orange color, very clear with loosely scattered if active tiny bubbles, very little change around the rims and glass bottom, maybe slight yellowing. The nose is salty and pretzel-like more than honeyed, wheat germ and cut grass, whisper of pressed flowers and orange rind, pinch of cocoa powder, the peach, apricot fruit silently nods when it meets your eye. Medium-bodied, for as dry as it is the carbonation gives it a soft and fluffy mouth feel. The honey a notch higher here, no more, sweetens the lemon to orange citrus and bolsters the yellow apple, peach, apricot fruit, at least through the mid-palate. More wheat and unprocessed grains than green hoppiness. Retains that element of salt with some white pepper too. Balanced with no one part sticking out above the rest, not going to break any new territory but super easy to throw back.
