I have finally reached the end of the summer sampler pack.

Poured this one out of a 12oz can pretty quickly into a regular old pint glass.

A) The quick pour resulted in a nice inch of head, but it was gone in a hurry. The beer was a pale yellow.

S) Light grains and a bit of honey sweetness. Nothing offensive.

T) It's like a light beer with a hint of honey. I mean, you pick up a trace amount of honey, but I'm not sure about the Weiss. It doesn't taste bad.

M) A fairly light bodied beer. It's decent for warm weather, as it is pretty crisp and refreshing.

O) This is okay. If you're at a summer get together, and this one is on the top layer of ice in the cooler... Well, I say dig to the bottom and hope for the best.

Pours a nice bright, clear yellow. About a 2 cm head...sticks around a little bit with a little foamy lacing.

Smells of a little citrus, but predominantly a wheaty smell. No hint of honey.

Very light and carbonated on the first drink. No hops to be tasted, very little malt overtone, and about the same amount of wheat taste as other weizens. For the life of me I can't find the honey...maybe just a little towards the end of the drink.

Drinkability is very good. I could pound these like bud lights all night.

Overall, nothing outstanding. But on a hot summer day of mowing grass, it'd be great. Was expecting a little more honey taste, not sure how that would affect the beer overall, but an interesting thought. In the end, I would recommend this brew, for someone looking for an easy to drink weizen.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A) Golden color. Pours with a thin head then settles to creamy lacing along the outside edge. Active carbonation is visible. The body is transparent.
S) Yeasty with a mild sweet aroma, but no bold accentuated notes.
T) Wheaty with a barely noticeable honey flavor.
M) Smooth, somewhat creamy. Has a tingle on the tongue with a light body.
D) A decent wheat beer, but no unique characteristics to make it a stand out.

Pourd from a 12 ounce bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a small white head that disappears to nothing. It looks a lot like a macro lager.

Smell: Smells like a macro lager.

Taste: Tastes like a macro with some honey. Overall this is a very disappointing beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Golden yellow body with a nice quarter inch of pure white head.

Smell - Malt and honey aroma that is very tempting.

Taste - It starts out with a crisp malt flavor and moves on to finish with a subtle sweet honey taste. The flavor is smooth and well rounded for a mild brew.

Mouthfeel - The texture of this brew is slightly coarse even with a wet feel is has.

~ I enjoy this beer and am proud to say it's brewed only an hour and a half away from my home. If you haven't had a Honey Weiss, you need to try one and see what the buzz is about.
