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.
