12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/26/2018. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of honey, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, orange, banana, clove, peppercorn, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale/wheat malt, honey, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, orange, banana, clove, peppercorn, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppercorn bitterness; and slight wheat tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of honey, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light banana/clove, peppercorn, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale/wheat malt, honey, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Nicely clean lagering, fruity notes coming from the wheat and honey fermentation. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly crisp/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 5.8%. Overall this a very nice honey wheat lager. All around nice robustness and balance of pale/wheat malt, honey, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very well balanced between all flavors. Very unique stuff, but a really enjoyable offering.

Gentle aroma of honey, pours a clear golden amber with a white head. Light bodied, with a touch of tartness in the beginning flavor meshing with some biscuit and honey. Fades quickly to a lingering earthy hop finish. Overall, not a bad little lager.

Not huge fan of wheat beers but this one was pleasant. Would not buy a six pack. Would rather something else

On tap at Market 65, in a Nonic pint.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with 1/4 finger white head that fades quickly. Little visible carbonation. Not much to look at.

Sweet malt aroma, with clove and citrus. Smells remarkably like Blue Moon, but stronger.

Sweet, malty and honeyed arrival, followed by a citrusy tang and mild banana clove esters.

Heavier side of mid weight; little carbonation, slick and smooth. Appropriate for the style, but not quite my thing.

Tastes pretty much like a sweeter, bolder, less carbonated Blue Moon. Surprised this is a lager; would think its a Hefeweizen from the feel.
