hawthorne00 (2471) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Pale and just hazy gold with a white head. Aroma has lots of honey, wheat, a little lemon. Very light-bodied, high carbonation. Honey in the taste, but little sweetness. Tangy wheat, some citrus. Refreshing, an OK dust-cutter.

gnoff (7934) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2013
Bottled 33 cl from Chas Cole Cellars, Belmont/Geelong, on August 1, 2013.
As a "Honey wheat", BB 13.03.14.
Hazy golden color, white head. Sweet, honey scent. Sweet, honey, sugary taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Honey aftertaste.
Gone a bit too heavy on the honey for my taste, way too evident and sweet.

Pyobon (943) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2013
Pale straw with a loose head. Aroma is floral and honey. Medium body and good carbonation. Taste is tangy citrus with good honey notes and clean a finish. Very nice

floydian1 (1002) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 16, 2012
330ml bottle @ Jackpot Bar, Crown Casino, Melbourne (one of about 12 bottled craft beers for sale). This is a honey wheat ale with citrus, golden malts, honey and oranges on the nose. Not too sweet on the tongue with a clean finish of short duration and low bitterness (some lemony notes). Medium- light body. Reminiscent of Redoak’s version of this style. Appears hazy bright yellow with a thin white head that reduces to a stable collar.

davidm (1936) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Nice beer. Aromas of honey and straw. Taste starts sweet, and hace a bitter touch. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Pale yellow, with a thin head.

Davros (1991) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours pale gold with a small suddy head. Nose mostly shows grassy and floral Euro hops. Not much in the way of wheat, but at least some of the honey shows through. Same with the flavours unfortunately: grainy malt, grassy hops and a mild metallic bitterness with just a hint of honey. Light body and too much carbonation.

Jade (409) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2010
Clear golden colour with minor carbonation. Very strong wheat aroma. Wheat based flavour with hints of honey, no more. Not bad.

Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 16/1/2010. Described as a honey wheat ale, there is far more evidence of the former than the latter. Honeyed sweetness is the predominating feature, with perhaps just a hint of the wheat, and a very mild bitter, citrus finish. This is actually quite refreshing drop, and suited to a hot summer’s day. A bit better than some others here have suggested.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Pours a very peculier pale lemon with a nice white head. I actually didnt realise this was a wheat until i poured it. Nose has tangy citrus fruit. Palate is straight forward but none to offensive. More tangy lemon, no real detection of honey. Finishes tangy from the wheat with some citrus presence. Very easy drinking, decent alternative to a citrusy apa.
