Honey flavor stronger than expected but easy going down.

Really good beer. Very similar to a shock top or blue moon with orange garnish but with a very solid and smooth malt finish. Amazingly great tasting beer

On tap at Local Habit. Described as an "orange honey wheat," though I would be more specific-- an orange-blossom honey flavored beer. This just totally tastes like honey. I'd even have to describe it as honey-colored, but maybe that's the power of suggestion. Huge nose of orange blossoms and still more honey.

There is not much of a head but brew is adequately carbonated in the mouth. There is a pleasant tanginess that cuts some of the sweetness. A pleasant hoppy bitterness sneaks up after some sipping. Light bodied, but feels more substantial with all the flavors.

This is surprisingly drinkable. You just have to really like honey. One of the best honey-flavored beers I've had. It just needs a toastier taste to go with it.

An orange honey wheat on tap at URGE. 

A: Hazy yellow with a small white head.

S: Grain and vanilla with faint citrus. A bready malt presence is apparent.

T: Sweet bread and a lot of coriander. Honey is pervasive. Orange melds with tangerine. I get some vanilla.

M: Lower medium body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: A beer for people who don't drink beer.
