This was actually a very good beer in my opinion. The aromas of honey when you open the bottle were very noticeable. The taste of this was also very good and will continue to drink this beer when I am able to do so. This is very popular in my area as well.

The Honey Weiss is one of Leinenkugel's staples. Great beer.

A: True to its character as a filtered wheat beer, it has a golden yellow color with descent head and good lacing.

S: Sweet grass fields in summer sunshine also sporting light yeast notes.

T: Sweet honey taste true to its style with floral hop notes in the back and slightly bittering at the end. The aftertaste is of very clean wheat and long lasting honey.

M/D: Not to light and not to heavy of a feel. The head is creamy and the brew doesn't leave your mouth super dry. A superb thirst quencher and good drinkability.

I had a very fresh bottle I picked up in Wisconsin while visiting family. Really good, I thought this would be another beer that was too sweet, but it's almost perfect for what it is. Amazing on a hot summer's day, it's definitely not a "poor" beer.

This is one of my favorite beers. Tastes great, not too sweet and with a good amount of malts. My favorite Leinie.
