On the neck of the bottle: "SEP0417 601200411"

Appearance: It is a medium-dark shade of gold with lots of visible carbonation rising to a short white creamy textured head. It has good retention but the head is pretty short for a wheat ale. The beer has much more clarity than the standard wheat beer.

Aroma: There is a light sour tinge that often comes from wheat. There is also a very faint cereal grain scent.

Taste: There is a light sweet honey taste to the beer and a bit of what reminds me of Ritz Crackers; possibly a light buttery taste. There is a very faint taste of hops at the back of the beer.

Mouthfeel: It is a very easy beer to drink with a rather sweet and light bodied finish.

Overall: If you are into beers that are very light and a touch sweet then you might be interested in this beer as a "quick pick." Although it advertises itself as a beer "crafted with wheat & clover honey" it shelves all of the unique qualities in these ingredients in favor for something lighter and less memorable. It's a decent enough beer to pick up if there isn't much of a choice available but it's not likely to make an impression on anyone.

On a side note the beer tasted a lot more like the flavor you get from honey malt rather than actual fermented honey.

Pours a pale yellow with plenty of crisp white head. Plenty of carbonation as well. Even though its a wheat beer, its actually not hazy. Smell is more pilsner like. Initial taste is more pilsner like as well but also sweet and crisp. Definitely a good summer time brew, will probably enjoy more

For beer snobs this'll never be good because who makes it but it's a really good beer like it's father Blue Moon Belgian White. Pours the golden color you expect with the thin white head. Has a sweet smell and great flavor that is easy to drink with no aftertaste.

It pours a orange with a small head that leaves quickly. Smell is bready and taste is light almost nonexistent. Mouthful isl lite and watery. Overall just an average beer but very easy to drink.

Pours orange with a slight off white head.

Smell is kind of skunky? Some mild wheat, yeast, and floral hops. Not what I'd expect for a pale wheat ale.

Taste is very wheaty, sweet with a touch of honey. Some floral hops are noted on the back end. It not nearly enough for a pale ale. It's pretty blah but that gives it general appeal and drinkability.

Feel is fine, light crisp and drinkable. Medium carbonation.

Overall is a fine drinking beer. Nothing special. It's not bad it just isn't good either.
