L: Lightly hazy yellow color with hints of orange where the lights hit it. No head, but I think that is from how the bar poured it, they left no room for head.

S: Sweet honey, maybe a little cucumber and slight hop note, but overall not a very strong aroma.

T: Sweet honey and a little cereal grain. There isn't much flavor, honey is about it. Quite sweet.

F: Light feel and smooth carbonation

O: Drinkable but not too much going on here definitely better wheat beers out there.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, wheat/grass. The taste is malty, yeasty, wheat/grass. Medium body. Overall, a nice tasty brew.

Surprisingly IPA-looking; bubbly, oily head. Lots of lacing. Golden yellow, despite stirring the bottle not very hazy. Nose of some apricots, straw aromas, grains, touch of hoppiness. Taste is mild and refreshing. Sort of bland, faceless. Smooth, not very crisp unfortunately. I like a bit of bite in a wheat.

Mindless-drinking beer. Tasty, but boring.

Draft, taster

A – Deep gold, very hazy. White to slightly off-white foam.

S – Slightly caramel malt but mostly buttery biscuit (not diacetyl, likely the honey). Mild honey sweetness. Perhaps some floral, mildly spicy hops.

T – Golden biscuit with floral hops. Slight fruitiness. Wheat has some protein-y influence. The honey is light but adds an impression of sweetness.

M – High carbonation creates a very nice feel, sweetness and slight bitterness are very well balanced. Very palate cleansing.

O – Very good, honey provides a nice touch. Mouthfeel is fantastic. Very well-made wheat beer.
