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.

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.

This was a pale gold colored beer, looks like most macros you would find. No head to be found. Theres a pretty watery taste to this drink, along with a slight wheat flavor. This isnt something you would be looking for if youre looking for a good tasting brew. Maybe if its hot out and youre looking to put down a lot of drinks, but other than that stay away.

This beer is probably my least favorite of Leinenkugel's main offerings. Smell is not very strong, and not very distinct. This is refreshing, but fairly basic. I can taste a hint of honey towards the end. Mouthfeel is a bit weak, though I have to say given the very dense taste of the Blue Moon honey beer I had recently, maybe it is better to err on the side of less-dense rather than more dense for a honey-laden beer. Overall, though I'm a Leinie's fan, this is not particularly special.
