Notes: Definitely sunshine in a glass. Beehive is a joy to drink, with its beautiful honey-gold color and refreshing, full-flavored body. For our version of the classic American Wheat, we use less two-row and more Munich malt for depth, and soften the edges with the lightness of wheat. Local Black Forest honey adds character without sweetness

Classic golden body with white foam and lazy lacing. Wheat, honey, and macro lager yeasts and malts in the nose. Taste is better than nose let on, honey doesn't linger long but neither does the macro, lots of wheat and malt. Feels is thin, dry, bright and wheaty.

Look: Hazy light honey color. Very little head with small bubbles sticking around after it dissipates.

Smell: Slightly boozy, honey and grain notes.

Taste: Honey up front, strong grain flavors which compliment the honey

Feel: Good carbonation. Smooth on the palate

Overall: Drinkable, but not something I would seek out on a regular basis.

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.

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.

Tried this in an effort to expand my horizons. Still don't like wheats. The honey in this wheat beer does give it a nice flavor that's a little different than most, but that didn't quite nudge it into look-for-it-again territory.
