Honey Weiss poured a cloudy bright yellow color, with not much head. There really wasn't much of a smell, hints of honey were present but not much else. The taste had hints of lemon and honey, but had a grainy and unpleasant after taste. Light flavor, and not very enjoyable, overall stay away.

12oz bottle best by july 02 2012

Pours an extremely clear pale yellow with a slight orange tinge. Weak-looking bubbly head fades away to a bit of film in an instant. Smell is very strong husky corn, maybe some light malt, and the honey is barely there in the back. Taste is slightly burnt bread crust, corn water, and the presence of malt but not the taste. There isn't any honey flavor, but it is sweet.

Okay, easy to drink to the point of being flavorless. Better than bud/miller/coors, but still in that category.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Extremely clean pour and appearance, even for a kristalweisen, with a short lived and lacy head.s

No hint of honey in the smell or the taste. I kind of expected that in a Honey Weiss.

More bitter than I expected for a Honey Weiss with a shot of hops in the aftertaste.

Dry finish. Could probably drink it on the hottest of July days, but only if nothing else was available.
