2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nope. Don’t think I like the smell of this one too much. Beer pours a clear light orange-gold color with a small, frothy, white, mostly and quickly dimishing head. The aroma is a little creepy: malty with light notes of husky toasted grain; Hoppy with a light note of chamomile flowers and straw; light notes of honey and a tiny trace of something that smells chemical—like permanent wave. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with an average-length, lightly astringenty, lightly bittersweet finish. Popcorn kernal retros. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. Bears can ’ave it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of SweeTarts, hint of honey.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Thin, watery, slightly too sweet to be a summer quencher, not much aroma (but not unpleasant). Boring.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dull and disappointing aroma, which shows little character comes out of the yellow body and white froth. Nothing balanced about it. Understated spiced character hardly comes through. A percentage of wheat malt could make it a bit more balanced. It’s husky and could be sweeter. Gross.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours a hazy, Belgian wit side of yellow with a big white head that leaves heavy lacing. Honey and malt nose. Tastes like honey and water. Watered down honey really. Then there’s honey...and water. Aftertaste is honey with some water. They told me it had honey and water in it, didn’t they?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, a tiny touch of hops, and honey sweetness. Flavor is sorta hoppy and then goes sweet, too sweet. To much honey for me I think, not a bad beer overall. Better than Portland honey and Michelob Honey.

crsytal clear, no head, tart malts, mild hops, good malt finish, caramel, oh just look at that bear so full of youthful zeal and wonder, sooner or later he’ll have to settle down and get a job like the rest of us, get a job in a cubicle along with a drinking problem and maybe some occasional smack that bear is a philosopher

The label is different on my bottle. The bear is not standing up. The body is medium gold with a bright white head. The aroma is light grapefruit with some There is also a little dry woody character. There is a hazelnut note. The taste is bread crust with some light toasted almonds. There is also a little hint of spicy ginger. A nice refreshing summer beer.

amber in color with a medimum off white head, the aroma is complex honey dominates the sense, but it is blended with a light hoppy scent. mmmmmmmm. tempting, spicey immediatly on the palate but it smooths out just as quickly. it is light and can be easy drank. refreshing. great seasonal beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is actually rather minty, even moreso than honey. Pours a transparent yellow with a small white head. Flavor is citrusy with some light honey. Honey sweetness gets slightly stronger in the finish with a hint of bitterness and light acidity. Antother refreshing and drinkable beer, but does nothing to distinguish itself.
