The Honey doesn’t really come through and the palate is a bit harsh. The second one isn’t as harsh, and while the honey is better, the aftertaste is distracting.

Straight from the bottle to my mouth. Satisfying enough. Little light. But crisp. Just ok.

Sampled at Rum River Wine & Spirits. This was thin and light, with not much going on at all. Maybe a contender in summer versus some macro lagers, but really this is pretty lame for a "gold medal winner".

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank this too warm which could influence rating. Clear yellow, small lacing white foam. Barley aroma, don’t know where the honey went, likewise in taste. (Memphis 201505)

There wasn’t really anything special about this beer. Probably my least favorite in the Blue Moon family that I’ve tried. Had to get it super cold so it wouldn’t get that shwaggy domestic taste. I found it just average, but I did like the honey flavor, which was quite noticable. Not bad for a lighter beer on a hot summer day. Ok for the price, better than a lot of the alternatives.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like a BMC with a little bit more wheat.
Appearance- This is a clear golden color with a large white head.
Palate- A moderate bodied beer with heavy carbonation. This beer has an unpleasant aftertaste that does not go away with each sip.
Overall- Hugely disappointing. This is a very poorly made brew.

Nice and interesting. With a little hint of honey and quite easy to drink. Refreshing and relaxing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours a pale yellow with quickly dissipating head. strong aroma of honey. taste has some citrus and other sweet fruit. a seemingly decent macro-brewed wheat ale. However, as it warms up, the finish resembles a typical macro lager with some faint hops. so-so session beer, but not particularly recommended.

Can. Pours clear yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is strong of wheat, honey, sweet, grainy, baking spices. Taste is crisp, highly honey on the finish. Not much going on but honey...

Known as Honey Summer Wheat Ale now. Great flavor, not overpowering. Very smooth with a very mild sweet undertone
