This is really boring and slightly repulsive. Body is light yellow-gold with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is slightly repulsive rotten wheat, lemon, and honey but there really isn’t much to it. Taste is an equally unimpressive blend of the aforementioned. Mouthfeel is as light as it can get. Carbonation doesn’t even get in the way. A tad sweet and a touch yucky. Undrinkable.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with very little head.

The aroma could fainly be attributed to honey, but it was mostly airy and grassy, with a hint of wheat and lemon.

Flavor starts out with a fizzy buzz on the tongue, followed by a high pitched sweet honey bite. Then there is a flavor that reminds me of Budweiser, of all things. It also finishes a bit harsh.

Mouthful is a bit too carbonated. Fizzy, overly crisp aftertaste.

It's quite drinkable, having a light body. Not sure I'd want to, though, due to the flavors they did pick, and the harsh finish.

I don't think the flavors are well balanced. Nice to see a tribute to Houdini's home town, but it's no magic act.
