12 oz bottle from Saubels. Labeled "Summer Honey Wheat." Too sweet and smooth for my taste. Hint of citrus.

"Having a couple of this summers blue moon reminded me of this one. Slightly sweeter from the honey, which is pleasant. Other than that, small differences. Not a bad summer ale, especially for BMC."

Rated from notes taken on 2 Ju 2011 -- Sampled at a beer tasting. This beer was too sweet and not balanced at all. Did not like.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
A nice solid wheat ale with a modest orange body and okay head (when poured into a plastic cup). Good amount of orange and coriander on the flavour and aroma but not too overpowering. Highly drinkable in large quantities if you’re into the style.

Very clear for a wheat. Aroma is dull wheat and almost non-existant, probably got filtered out with the haze. Taste is suprisingly good. Taste is honey with a light wheat and orange zest. Honey is a nice addition that makes this very refreshing on this hot day.

Frahmo (292) - Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Taste like a blue moon with a touch of honey in it. Nothing spectacular, pretty bland aroma with a faded taste. Nothing to see here.

It tastes like blue moon. It has honey. I had a free sample at the liquor store. I wouldn’t buy it. But I’ll drink it for free. And I guess that’s exactly what a 2.5 is.
