Tulip snifter from bottle. A: virtually no nose. App: bright gold with quickly dispersing, one finger head, white, frothy head. T: very light taste up front but great honey taste in the back. True to its name and good in its own category! Very unique! P: nice fluffy bubbles while crisp and had a long, honey, lingering aftertaste.

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

Ericular (768) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2015
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".

vipinvelp (2691) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2015
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)

Jabah (178) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
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.

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
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.

Very smooth with a great mouth feel. Nice aftertaste and refreshing with a pleasant aroma. Fredo

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

swiseman (442) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
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
