2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Ferguson Brewhouse, as a guest beverage. Served a pale golden color with a small head that fades to a bit of lacing. Mild grain aroma with a hint of honey sweetness. Has a mild fresh grain flavor with a nice touch of honey sweetness. No real bitterness and a clean finish.
Light body and smooth. Good balance as the honey sweetness is not overpowering and there is no lingering sticky sweetness like some of this style. Nice beer, nothing fancy or over the top for the style. I’m not big on wheat beers, but I do try to support my local brewers

Clear blond, white head. Sweet honey & hay in the aroma. Sweet bread & malt with hops in the finish. Creamy on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Augusta, served in a pint glass. Pours a bright, clear golden color with rising bubbles that don’t stop and a surprisingly small white head that quickly settles into just a ring. Aroma shows a definite snap of honey before some wheat, sweet and pale malts. Flavor of honey, wheat, cereal grains, and sweet malts. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. I never have high expectations for ’honey wheat ales’ but this one is the best of that sub-style I’ve had in a long time. Perfect for our 100-degree day.
