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.

12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark yellow with a one finger white head that settles into a tiny layer over the beer. No lacing at all.

Aroma is very spicy and Belgiany but really lacks the punch I am looking for. Alcohol is also quite noticable along with a touch of lemon.

Too much alcohol in the flavor. Ethanol hits me immediately along with a lemony solvent note. Some yeasty spice in the background. Mouthfeel is like water with no body to it whatsoever along with a sticky finish.

Overall, this one needs to go back to the drawing board. Alcohol is way too noticable and the mouthfeel too watery.

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 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.

Yep, that's right. Another beer from the bodacious woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy yellowish color with a small head. Smell, is very mild, light fruits, not getting very much here. Taste is lemony, some yeast, a touch of spice. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.
