Brewed by:
Wild Wolf Brewing Company
Virginia, United States

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
An unfiltered Belgian style Blonde Ale with wheat and a lot of honey in every pour. We have also added a special spice blend to give it an added kick. Smooth and refreshing this beer is straw Yellow in color with a slight sweetness in the middle and an estery finish characteristic of the best Belgian beers. If the yeast has settled, swirl before you pour.

A: Cloudy orange with a thin head that dissipates quick. Looks like a decent wheat beer.

S: Interesting. Very strong citrus. Smells like a cider.

T: Strange. It's like someone dumped a shot of Apple cider into a wheat beer. Only a slight hint of honey.

M: Not bad. Cool and refreshing. Goes down smooth.

O: My first offering from Wild Wolf and it yields strange results. It tastes more like cider than a Belgium blonde. Whatever spice they used tastes like an apple. Weak on the honey taste. Mediocre representative of its genre. Sadly, this beer will probably keep me from trying more options from Wild Wolf which is a shame since it's made in my home state of Virginia. Nice label art though. Probably the reason I bought it.

I love most all Belgians and this is no different. Nice smooth sweet flavor a little hoppy. Has a decent abv and is very drinkable.

The reviews for this particular beer seem to remind me of a bunch of guys who took up drinking beer because it was the cool thing to do, and now they feel obligated to drink one and write a snooty beer review. Well let me set the record for those of you wondering about buying this seemingly mysterious canned beer. Its great! Some of us were not priviledged enough to have champagne flowing from our urinals when we were young and learned what a nice cold canned beer meant on a hot summers day. Some of the guys on here remember those filfthy canned beers chillded to ice cold temperatures on that hot summer day. This is a canned beer you would have wished you were ripping into at the end of that hard working day in the sunshine! Now some of you acornless fools who get on here and massage your tulip folds would disagree, but you know that you drink beer for a sport. Some of us drink it because it is the pot of gold at the end of the hard trotted rainbow road. We just hope whats in the pot helps us to forget the days troubles. Blonde Hunny is what a working man desires! In both ways (human and spirit).

First off I could do the "5 step" douche review we currently seem to look to on here, but hey you just get desensitized over time to being in a douchebag world. This review if for those guys who like to wear t-shirts and dont need the button down kind of review. If you like to drink canned beer after being out in the sun all day, you cant go wrong here. Also if this review doesnt make it to print, censorship is alive an well. If this review does make it to print, freedom still may have a chance. Either way drink this beer and know there are some things in the world that are right. Plus honey is good for about everything known to man! Get your medicine men!

This was just alright. The label says there is honey in there, but this was much sweeter than expected.

Had on draft when writing this review but I've purchased in cans before as well. A little sweet. A little hoppy. A little spicy. Nice golden hue. Has enough body and ABV for the winter but has the wheat and "hunny" to make it a summer beer as well. Tasty beer.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy and deep gold in color, finger and a half of head, with very little lacing. Smell is of honey, floral Belgian yeast, and maybe honeysuckle from that combo, which works very nicely. Taste is like a very floral honey that combines well with a decent malt sweetness and phenols and esters of the Belgian-esque yeast qualities. Feel is good, medium-light bodied, easy drinking without being thin or watery. A fairly solid sweeter version of a Belgian pale. Fragrant, pretty flavorful, and very easy to find and afford in central VA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. This beer has a cloudy yellow appearance. The head is small and white. The aroma is heavy on citrus and malt. Overall, an average beer.

Nice hazy gold pour with an ample white head. Definite honey in the nose at first, but then the spiciness emerges, and the expected yeast; a nice experience. Taste is certainly yeasty and sweet, as expected, but not too sweet, which is important to me for a beer like this. Likewise the spices add character without being distracting. Quite easy drinking, but much more than a simple thirst quencher.

Serving Can - poured into a perfect pint glass

A: pours a hazy, bright, golden yellow. Almost glow with sunlight behind it.

S: wheat, citrus, light malt. Overall pleasant aroma.

T: starts slightly sweet with a peppery spicy finish. Nice balance of lemon, honey and spice. Dangerously drinkable.

M: A little thin considering the ABV but still solid enough.

O: A really uniquely refreshing beer. Great summertime staple that goes down smooth and packs a punch.
