Not bad at all. I'm not a big fan of what I perceive as sweet pale ales but this one is a wheat beer with a nice balance of malty/biscuity backbone and some hop presence with of course a bit of honey. Goes down pretty smooth. Prost!

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a decent yellow color with a light transparency about it allowing some light carbonation streams to be seen rising. The aroma had a light honey arising about it. The taste was sweet and sticky honey slapping my lips in nicely but not overbearing. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium (yeah for a blonde showing a heavier body, hmmm...interesting, I diggin’ it). There was a slight honey aftertaste that bled into a sweet sticky finish. Overall, this one may come across as a fairly sessionable beer but if anything this blonde has some flavor to it. Don’t take this one for granted.

12 oz can in Idaho.
Hazy amber body with a durable white head.
Aroma: an appealing mix of wheat bread, honey and yeast.
The same elements characterize the flavor, along with some earthy hops. Nether sweet nor bitter overall.

On-tap served in a snifter at Hair of the Dog, Bangkok.

Deep orange amber color, it comes with silky white head that stands with good retention before slowly sinking to a long-lasting bubble sheet atop and leaving plenty of lacing patch all around.

In a nose, honey, flowery, clove spice, baked bread, biscuit, dough, grain sugar, and honeysuckle.

Sweetness is in a lead by honey and sweet bread/biscuit malt, then it is sweet again with notes of honey, floral, bread/biscuit malt, sugar, and dough yet with lingering residual sweet malt and toasted biscuit.

Medium body with crisp and lively carbonation through the palate, quite smooth mouthfeel, finish is dry.

It is quite a good brew with lots of malt and hop profile that is uniquely displayed in both the aroma and flavor.

on tap at North Park tap room - smells bready and biscuity with significant honey sweetness, as expected. pours pale straw colored, perfectly clear with lower than expected head or retention. taste: continues with breadyness, honey sweetness and not enough hop bitterness to balance it well. palate: just some restrained astringency going on. it finishes with lingering honey sweetness and fading bitterness. - not a bad beer. simple. easy. not a bad thing.

With the seductive sweetness of honey that waltzes through a fresh kilned grain profile, the Belching Beaver team makes the lackluster pale wheat style somewhat irresistible.

Me So Honey pours with a self-explained pale honey gold appearance while carrying a modest wheat translucence. Floral honeysuckle, delicate fruit and fresh baked breads waft onto the nose while its taste is sweet with grain sugars, light cake flavor and overt honey overtones; somewhat seeming angel food cake-like.

And as the sweetness rolls across the palate, its honey seduction is lost on the tastebuds and the beer's sweet graininess starts to win out. Light with melon, strawberry, apple and citrus, its complexity is delicate, tangy and remaining floral. Bold sweetness prevails as any hop balance is mute, adding a faint grassiness to the finish.

Medium-bodied and smooth, the texture is much like cream ale as hints of vanilla and cream add a softness to taste but also limits the beer's crispness, cleanliness or refreshment. It is however, a summer beer that would find much favor at picnics, front porches or beside those summer salads.

Pours a straw yellow, carbonation is medium to high, taste is crisp, sweet and very lightly hopped. Aroma is sweet with some honey notes. A great summer beer.

A cloudy, golden orange beer with a quickly fading off white head. The smell is mostly honey with bready yeast. The taste is sweet with the distinct taste of honey. There is a little bitterness at the end but a lot of bread yeast in there. Not a bad beer but big on the honey and bread tastes.

definitely a fan of this one, really cool and crushable honey brew, very authentic honey flavor, but not too sweet overall, something i would drink a ton of in warm weather if it were available here. cloudy and very pale, looks like a wheat beer for sure, tall frothy white head on it, lively bubbles, pretty intricate lacing. floarl honey aroma with a little generic clean citrus, less yeast influence than expected. driven by the fresh wheat and honey in the flavor, fresh and sweet in the middle, not all the way waxy and raw, but all the way flavorful, with more hops than anticipated too, somewhat lemony, pungent, lots of wheat too, drier than it starts in the end, very well carbonated, and overall an extremely distinct beer that is a great showcase of honey. i like it being so low alcohol, perfect for sessioning, and i like it so bubbly. the honey is cool because its very obvious in the taste but does not make this too sweet for heavy consumption. i have liked everything i have had from these guys, not sure why this one (and all of their stuff really) doesnt get more hype. well made and creative beers, this is a great honey ale!
