A rather simplistic take on a wheat-plus-honey beer. Beer is straw yellow, perhaps with a brozny tinge, and surprisingly clear. Head is white, decays rather quickly, and leaves minimal lacing. Nose is malty and simple. Taste is like a very basic light ale with the added sweetness of honey that hits especially on the back side of the flavor profile. Minimal hops presence. Mouthfeel also minimal, just a slight slickness. Nothing offensive, really, but I've had a couple of other beers made with honey recently and they both had more complexity, more yeast presence, and the honey was more nicely blended than in this beer. Drink-by date was in November, so it should be relatively fresh.

Served from the twisty 12 ounce bottle into a chalice. The head is thin, settling down to a crescent around part of the glass rim, but the carbonation is fairly lively. The beer is clear, and of a pale ruddy golden color.

A good bit of tartness is perceived on the nose, along with a noticeable mead-like aroma. The flavor is a bit bland- the tartness on the nose doesn’t extend to the tongue. A bit of DMS is detectable and maybe just a little honey, although it is noticeably sweet. No spice, no hop flavors to speak of. It also has a thin mouth feel for a wheat beer.

This beer is certainly drinkable, especially on a warm day, but lacks distinction overall. The desirable qualities of a wheat beer are largely absent. Purchased as part of a variety 12 pack for $13+.

Light, sweet and wheaty. Borderline flavorless. Still, not bad for a summer sipper. Serve ice cold, drink a ton of it and forget you're drinking Blue Moon, only if offered to you.

First things first...this is my first. I have no experience with alcohol other than what I've tried, so his is the first I've genuinely tasted. The first thing to note is that it has a nice golden color which is very appealing, but that's about all that's good about it. Smell wise, it smells just like stale bread, nothing really appealing about the smell...but I bet it could be worse. Taste is the biggest disappointment, but I can see some appeal. It tastes just like Kombatcha tea except there's a lesser alcohol taste to this than the tea, the tea tastes like stale bread so this not only smells of stale bread but tastes of it too which isn't appealing. I can, however, see the appeal if you enjoy wheat ales...I am not one of those people apparently. Feel is pretty good though, it's quite smooth and the bubbles make the tongue tingle a bit which is nice...nothing offensive here. Overall it's not amazing, but it's not bad. I think this one is an acquired taste.

color is light and refreshing , haqs a golden look
small head but lots of bubbles rising
has a sweet malty smell, some hoppiness
balanced malt and a touch of honey make this easy to drink
