Sampling right now on 5/8/15 but had this several times in the past and even on tap but never did a review on it. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "LEINENKUGEL'S" pint glass.

Brew pours a golden-yellow in color with about a half-finger foamy white head. Spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of wheat, grains with a touch of honey. Very nice. Pretty much is said for the taste and isn't over done at all with the honey. Very smooth with a bit 'o honey taste for the finish. Always enjoyed this one. Lighter to medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Tasty brew!

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

It looks : generous stark white head on top of a very bubbly and blonde colored body. Transparent all the way through.

It smells : light honey, which is a given; basic sweet Pilsner aromas with earthy hop. Ends with honey too.

It tastes : like a basic blonde lager with a touch of sweetness. It is sweeter and smoother tasting than their original though not as interesting, but I like wheat beers so I may be biased. Some light grassiness, a bit of earthy hop.

It feels : lightly creamy, light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Ends wet.

Overall : a very mediocre beer. You can drink it but it's far from impressive in any way. I probably wouldn't have it again unless there were no better options. One of Leine's worst offerings.
