12oz bottle served in a snulip. Date on the bottle is 06/19/23. Got it in a trade with @MrSandman101.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a small head composed of very fine bubbles. Smell is orange peel and flowers with a light bready undertone.

Taste is moderate clove, light honey, orange peel, and more of that breadiness.

Mouthfeel is a little bit on the heavy side, almost a chewy texture. Overall, not bad.

Had it out of a 12oz can.

L - In a can.
S - Spice heavy, but not too bad.
T - This is where it really goes downhill for me. It’s too overpowering. The spices, the honey, it’s all there and it doesn’t blend.
F - It’s alright, but with a noticeable sticky mouthfeel after swallowing
O - I can’t recommend this one. It’s a no buy from me.

This beer has changed dramatically since 2019. Something changed around 2020/2021 around when the label went from black to white. That is time when Revolver ruined this beer. It used to be a genuine honey and spice bomb with shades of orange. Now it's the opposite; Overpowered bitter orange with very very little noticeable honey or spice. This results in the formally wonderful smell profile turning into something less desirable. The 2019 version I would have given a 4.5. Whatever Revolver did to cut corners on costs has made me retire this beer from my go-to list permanently. I thought maybe it was a couple of bad batches but it wasn't, they changed it for good.

While visiting Dallas, happened upon a Happy hour and cracked one of these. Super refreshing wheat beer that was flavored with some citrus tangy notes complimented by some sweet honey notes. A super light bodied beer and drinkable beer with a sneaky 7% abv. A great hot day option when in Texas and don’t want Shiner Bock.

Pours a yellow-orange with about a finger of fizzy head that dissipates fast. Minimal lacing. Average carbonation.

Smells of spice. Allspice, clove, probably some other stuff going on in there. Can't really smell the beer because of all the spice. What beer hints I do get are just sweet bready malt. Maybe a touch of citrusy hops, but that might also be the orange peel.

Tastes cloyingly sweet and overspiced. I guess it's the honey that's doing it, but this beer is almost unpalatably sweet. What beer character there is seems to be overpowered by the spice and sweetness. No hops to speak of.

Body is decent, but leaves a very sticky film in the mouth after swallowing.

I really don't like this beer. I've had other Revolver stuff over the years and it's always been pretty mediocre. My opinion is that they throw all the spice and honey in here to mask an inferior brew, but people seem to drink it up since it's a staple on the shelves anywhere I go. I recommend you skip this unless you just really love cloves and sugar.

To good health and good beer.

12 oz bottle, poured into a teku at ~40 degrees F.

L: Pours an almost coppery pale straw-orange, and forms minimal head which vanishes swiftly.

S: There's definitely orange in the aroma, atop a loaf of bread sprinkled with flower petals.

T: The honey is quite prominent - front, center, and both sides. Beneath it comes some hints of orange citrus, and a faint spiciness. There's not much else going on - those notes roll through to the finish, and linger after,

F: To the lighter side of medium, and almost sticky.

O: Ordinarily, I'm not a fan of pale wheats, but the honey in this more than masks any of the hop presence that would otherwise be implied by "American pale". Not a favorite for me, but not bad.

Got on tap at a local bar. Poured a golden yellow with about an inch worth of head that dissipated quickly. Great mouth feel, taste is reminiscent of how sweaty socks smell, and spiced orange peel but it works well somehow. Overall, I drink it regularly.

7% ABC...really ?...don't feel or taste like it...this is a kind of novelty brew...ok but not my style or taste...did not get the honey vibe at all...and the cool and humorous names of beers does not impress me either... and this is one of them...I don't smell beer before I drink it and don't buy into the type of mug or glass being used affecting a beer rating...reviewers smelling chemicals and other weird observances is a bit over the top...

Yelllow pour with a head that starts about 1 inch and the disappears. Clean beer with a good aftertaste to it. Yellow in color with some orange as well as graininess.
