Yellow, nice clarity, heavy carbonation. Aroma was sweet, I don't know how honey like it is, but sweet for sure.

Taste is almost a meld shandy wise of soda, lemonade, tea and whatnot. Expensive, and there's just so many better examples of hot weather beer that does the trick.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Look: Clear, light yellow. Off white head
Smell: Wheat, some earthy hops, a little banana,
Taste: Wheat, floral hops, honey, adjunct malts, slightly metallic. Overall a bit sweet.
Feel: Good carbonation, somewhat dry finish, a little watery.

It's okay at best. Drinkable, but not something I see myself getting again.

Poured into a can glass from a bottle with the date of May 30 2016 stamped onto it. Had a very good looking head which dissipated quickly, with minimal lacing. Outstanding clarity sums up its appearance. Tasted like...someone poured some lemon and honey into a Budweiser. Not for me.

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a clear bright yellow with a thick, fluffy 2 1/2" white head that slowly recedes to a thin layer of foam that leaves patches of lacing. Sipping leaves scattered patches of lacing. Eventually the head recedes to an large island of foam, a circle of foam with patches and legs of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.

The aromas include the wheat, a bit of malt and some light touches of honey.

The flavors include the wheat, some sweetness from the malt, and hints of earthy bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light bodied and slightly crisp from the moderate carbonation. The finish is medium length and begins with the sweetness fading away leaving the grains and dry bitterness to gradually close the show.

Overall while this is not an exceptional beer it is clean, refreshing and easy drinker. It would be particularly good during the summer and at a backyard barbecue. While, I don't intend to seek out another bottle, I certainly could be persuaded to accept another and am glad to have tried it.
