COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beehive is a refreshingly gentle ale, with a honey-gold color and just a suggestion of sweetness in the finish.

wabahoye (37) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2014
4 oz at High Plains. Pours a cloudy lightly/orangish straw. Not getting anything aroma wise.Slight honey up front, but then it grows to the point of chewing a beehive. Not necessarily in a bad way, but definitely there in the finish - a sweeter finish as a result. A bit of hop bitterness right before the finish. Light and refreshing...trying to decide what it would go well with. Rating is more a reflection of my preference vs. a poorly made beer. 4.38%

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Wheaty and sweet malty base, a hint of honey sweetness, and very low bitterness. Drinkable, but not very interesting. Which I guess is what a lot of people want from a wheat ale. Iíd have liked a little more hops.

March 27th, 2011 - Returning to the beers of my alma mater, I found more nostalgia in most of these bottles than I do real memories. Bristol Brewery was the official beer sponsor and supplier for Colorado Collegeís many events, and there tap room was a favorite place for me and my beer inclined friend to go on a weekend for a pint above the normal grade of what was being passed around in our undergraduate dormitories. One of the most sighted beers was Bristolís Beehive Honey Wheat. Light and refreshing, it made a lot more sense to buy a pack of this in the Fall or Spring than it did Summer, but it still had a place in my beer stash. With its cloudy, hazy golden body, it looks great on a sunny day, and smells wonderful too, exhibiting smells of honey, clear and polished and above all fresh, as well as the unique but to many unfamiliar smell of beeswax. Itís appealing, and unique. Less exciting is the flavor: flat and oddly fuzzy, with a mild wheat dimension, and the unhappy absence of honey. As a wheat beer itís fine, but I had hoped that the fine apiary qualities in the nose would make their way to the flavor too. On this tasting, at least, that does not seem to be the case.
