Can’t find a lot to get enthused about here. Had a bottle in a Wisconsin bar where it was the nearest thing to a micro-brew and the bottle had been in a flourescent lighted cooler. No complaints about the color, smell and taste are not off-putting.
Another bottle from the ”Leinie's Lodge Tackle Box” improved my opinion somewhat. There actually is a slight spicy weizen aspect in the nose that improves the tasting experience. Still can't say where the "honey" part comes in.

Had this on draft in Minnesota, can't really remember the town or restaraunt, but not pertinent

Poured golden with a 1" white head. Some head retention & lacing

Smell: Slight honey & malt notes

Taste: Sweet, malty &slightly fruitty. Finishes with a sight honey flavor

MF: Light, but okay balance & carbonation for the style

Drinks okay in the spring, but not sweet or complex enough to reccomend to other than fans of the style or curiosity seekers

Pours a light straw yellow and slightly chill hazed.

Wheat, light honey sweetness.

Honey, wheat, fresh grain, and herbal hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, fresh.

Overall, light in flavor but goes down easy. An enjoyable hot weather beer.
