I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle store . It poured a hazy golden with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had faint honey notes. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink with honey flavor. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Beer has a nice semi-dark hazy golden color. It developed a nice head. I get a slight bit of hops smell.
I expected more of a honey flavor but seem to be getting more of a hoppy flavor on the back end.
Its not a bad beer, very smooth but i expected somewhat of a different taste. I would drink it again if offered to me.

Canned on 6/27/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing golden; small white head that fades quickly leaving little retention and lacing. The aromas are mild. Subtle floral notes. Lots of bread and grains. Hints of corn. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More floral notes. The wheat comes through. Low bitterness. It's slightly sweet, but nothing crazy or over the top. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the fuller side of light-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's sharp, fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is an alright brew. It's not bad, but it's nothing crazy.

Pours like a golden honey color and tastes like honey off the comb. A very drinkable beer. Starts and finishes down very smooth. Nice beer for any occasion

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.

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.
