On tap at the Black Whale Pub in New Braunfels.

The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat with not too much else coming through. The honey is more noticeable in the flavor. I get a lot of sweet honey notes, as well as some sugar, toffee, wheat and a bit of grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I have always enjoyed blonde honey beers, one of my favorites being Barbar. The Texas Honey Ale from New Braunfels, Texas does not disappoint, sporting a higher abv (7.32) and lovely blonde highlights, it digests as both palatable and entrancingly alcoholic, not unlike a good belgian triple (my current favorite style).

I would suggest drinking this beer just as one receives a delicious, hearty appetizer, as it is both both yet subtle, with the honey ingredient being a lovely sweetener that does not diminish, but develops.

Growler bought from Premium Draught in Houston.

A: Pours a hazed golden/orange color. A two finger tightly packed and pillowing white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace as well.
S: Toasted malt and cereal grains. A nice honey sweetness, and a lavender aromas as well. Simple, but enjoyable enough.
T: Follows the nose. Bready and toasted malts. Cereal grains and a bit of sweetness. Honey like of coarse, but also distinctly lavender.
M/D: A light to medium body. Moderate carbonation, though a bit on the watery side. Not hard to drink at all. The growler will be gone in no time. Holly cow, I did not know this was over 7%, I can't tell that at all.

Pretty simplistic, by the books, and no frills. That is just fine. It hits the spot on a hot summer afternoon in Texas. Don't ignore it if you come across this. One of those beers that is for enjoying, not reviewing (oh the irony), and I am enjoying the hell of this the more I drink it.
