i was excited to see this for sale in philadelphia in a variety pack since i can only get the sunset wheat in new york . well the honey weisse was a big disappointment i mean big . there was nothing to this beer i think id even drink a rolling rock over this im just wondering if i got some bad ones because the red lager and sunset wheats in the pack were very nice . p.s the other beer in the pack was the creamy dark not that good either

Poured into a snow white head that disappated very fast. Very light yellow in color and brew was very clear. I dont know if Ive seen a more clearer beer or not. Virtually no lacing to speak of. Just a couple of white blothes here and there. Very light smelling. Maybe a little sweet honey. Tasted very light also. Had a little taste of honey and maybe a hint of lemon. but not much. Had a slightly bitter aftertaste. Felt ok in the mouth. It was almost like it had little or no carbonation. Very thin and watery. I dont think Ill buy these again. Really had no flavor to speak of. There was nothing to draw you back to the beer.

Appearance- Pours a very pale yellow colore with moderate carbonation and little foam.

Smell- Has a distinctive urine like odor mixed in with honey sweet.

Taste- Very bland but what taste there is of a combination of honey and water.

Mouthfeel- What, you can feel this on your palate?

Drinkability- Not so good, if not for its cheapness Id never buy this.

Another drain pour from this brewery.

Pours a yellow gold. Smell is a bit of yeast, maybe some wheat. Taste definitely has some wheat tones, but is horribly sweet and not integrated at all. Just a complete and utter mess.

Top it off, overly carbonated and watery.

Even though i wasn't expecting much from this beer, i was still disappointed. Bought this for the GF and had a smell and a couple sips. Yuck. Never again.

Very clear golden color, disturbingly clear and gold, much like an american macro (or piss). White head disappears to a very thin collar and leaves no lacing. Smell is pretty close to a macro, too, with something else, maybe green apples. Not really much honey there, i don't know if it would have helped, though. Nothing interesting in there. Taste is very similar. I don't think i will ever have this beer again, even if the GF wants a couple more bottles. Truly not a good beer, well below average.
