COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed with the addition of Clover Honey from Hunter’s Honey Farm located in Martinsville, Indiana. The use of Weihenstephan Weizen yeast gives this wheat beer a hint of clover, orange, and banana flavors that blends well with the added wheat malt to produce a crisp, refreshing ale perfect for any time of year.

Bottle.The pour was a murky golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thin cap and small collar which created some good spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a horse blanket yeast with notes of honey, citrus (orange peel) and a bit of clove. The taste was moderately yeasty and mildly sweet with a note of honey right off and then had a strong funky wheat presence with hints of citrus and clove towards the end. The flavor lingered for a very long while with a nice spicy wheat ending. Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and creamy in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a nice mildly sweet and yeasty brew with a good balance of flavor...

Rated on 2-12-2011 - This bottled beer has a small very fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, mostly transparent/slightly hazy light yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, wheat, citrus, floral, sweet, honey, some banana, and honey. The taste is semi-sweet, malty, honey, wheat, banana, hint of clove, and some alcohol. The mouth feel is smooth and semi-thick. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer and not complex at all. It is straight-forward all the way around.

Pours banana yellow with a creamy head. Beer is very citrusy and honey flavored. Also very syrupy and high in alcohol content.

Aroma is baana Clive yeast. Color is golden yellow hazy. The head dissipates to thin ring. Heavy alcohol, sweet taste with yeast banana and Clove taste from weizen yeast strain. Syrup heavy moth feel, not much hops, but lots of malt sweetness. A monster of a beer... Great to try, but I would rather have a goose island Belgian to sip on..

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a large white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, and spices. Taste is malt, wheat, citrus, and cloves. Some honey sweetness. A bit too spicy, but OK.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized long lasting white colored bubbles. The body was a typically carbonated transparent weak yellow color. The aroma was musty and mildly sweet. The palate was thin with a mild wheat honey dough flavor and a hop backing. Certainly not to die for.

Pours hazy pale after I swirled the bottle. White head is dense an lasting. Nose is flowery and waxy honey with medium banana and fair amount of cloves. Flavor is sweet malts and smooth with some alcohol and bananas and medium cloves. Medium full sweetness. Just a very light touch of tannins. Very smoothe other than that. really a pretty Goode hefe but could do without the honey in my opinion.

Pours an actual honey color with no head and no lace, but plenty of carbonation bubbles. Taste begins with honey and yeasty bread, but moves to the finish with lots of carbonation and a very odd taste of cloves and something I can’t identify on the sides of the tongue. For sure different, but not a beer I would enjoy drinking.

Bottle. Honey barley malt and light grass aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Sweet barley malt flavor with a hint of hops. Not bad.
