look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a glass.

Look - Crystal clear golden orange color. Streams of visible carbonation. No head.

Smell - Dominantly honey with a bready bit of malt and the tiniest bit of grassy hops.

Taste - The most vile concoction I've ever tasted. Disgustingly sweet in a vomit sort of way. Like honey mixed with rot and fungus. Terrible in every way imaginable.

Feel - Overly carbonated, gives an unpleasant feel to the terrible taste.

Overall - The first beer I've ever poured down the drain. Avoid at all costs. Don't know why this exists.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Date code marked on bottle is 'MAR1218 (BEST BY)'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. One finger white head settles to ring and islands. A little bit of lacing.
Aroma of pale wheat malt and honey. Faint aroma of fruity esters and earthy hops.
Taste of wheat malt, honey, banana, cloves, and earthy hops.
Smooth, crisp, refreshing mouth feel.
Pleasant, clean tasting beer with the honey sweet touch.

It taste a little bit like a below average Kristallweissen with honey. Leinenkugel brew good stuff, but I am not sure this is their best, but it is good enough.

Look: golden yellow with a thick white head

Aroma: moderate aroma of honey and wheat

Taste: You can taste the honey and a modest weissen wheat/banana flavor, but it is otherwise a bit bland, and a tad watery.

Feel: light body

This has a light golden look.....medium head at first pouring and mild carbonation. It has a smooth lightly honey ,malty flavor. Not too many hints of hops here. Not a bad beer, but should not be as expensive as it is.

this is a mellow smooth beer that goes down easy. If you are looking for a yeasty, hoppy, bitter tongue strangling after taste this beer is not for you. My wife use it in her pizza crust ingredients and boy it is good. It is our go to beer when we want a break from the IPA's or strong yeasty bitter brews.

Not as bad as everyone is rating it to be but I agree there is a slight watered down taste to the beer. Love the honey smell! A good beer for a midday drink.
