2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle bought directly from the brewery. Pours hazy yellow. Aroma is mainly citrous with lemons coming through. Taste though is very honeyed, to the point that it is a mead tasting beer. Little to strong on the honey sweetness for me and ultimately a bit too cloying. Lemon on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Thick hazy straw, orange hued, large foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Sour wheaty nose.   Somewhat reminds me of a very pale Gueuze.   This is not what was intended for sure, but its actually
probably more pleasant than a Honey Wheat.   Its a little lactic and tart.   Not quite big enough to be sour.   Yeah, this is more of a Sour Ale.   HAH!   I would love to give this a blind taste test to some other
beers that score very high.   Not as big as many, but its a petite version.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, a little fizzy in fact.   Tart finish, perhaps a little bit of a citrusy tinge.   Not getting any Honey
notes.   Not bad, and as I said before, probably better this way than a Wheat ale.   Too funny...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from my sister. Slightly hazy amber wtih long lasting, creamy white head. Aroma is sweeter wheat, tartness, lemon, some citrus, a little mustiness and funk. Flavor is sweet lemon and citrus with some wheat and tartness and some sweeter honey like flavor. Medium to light body, some creaminess and light carbonation. Infected but not in a bad way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
29-Jan-08 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 05-Oct-07 for $4.99 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Opening the bottle let loose a loud, powerful release of carbonation, and though the beer was carefully poured, I ended up with a glass of foam, which is never a good sign. Aromas of sour lemon, orange stone fruit, white grapes, and dusty, musty books further my suspicion of infection. And then on the palate, it’s lemony sour in taste, with mild acidity and a dusty flavor, and a pink grapefruit finish. The sourness wears off just enough in the finish to allow the wheat flavors to wave hello from a distance. Any hint of honey that might have been in the beer is completely trampled by the tartness. And at this point, it seems pretty obvious the beer is infected, but the thing is, this is one of those good mistakes because the beer is actually enjoyable and probably more so than if it were just a healthy, honey wheat beer. Carbonation is high, and when paired with the tartness, the beer is refreshing on the palate and has a fairly pleasant mouthfeel. Hazy, orange-gold in color, with spotty lacing on the glass. This is obviously not a healthy bottle of beer, but sometimes an infection can be a good thing. But it’s better if it’s intentional. In any case, this isn’t the way the beer is supposed to taste, so a rerate is in order at some point.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light fruity wheat beer. Not much in terms of esters but there is a unique fruit flavor to it. The guy behind the bar told me it was the orange blossom honey they used (as opposed to clover honey.)

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
22oz bottle. This one opened up to a very loud pssst and I expected it to gush all over my desk, but thankfully it didin’t!. Poured a deeper golden color with a huge sized off white head. Lots of big fuzzy and unattractive floaters that’s making me second guess drinking this. Aromas of citrus (lemons), yeast, honey, light spices, and a little funky. Tastes of tart lemons, wheat, and light spices. Lively and fizzy body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one exploded out of the bottle when opened. The first pour was all foam and I had to let it sit for 15 minutes. Aroma has notes of must, clove, and lemon citrus. Not alot of honey though. Pours a hazy dark orange/yellow with a nice lasting head. The flavor starts off with nice yeasty notes of clove and follows through with an aforementioned mustiness that then moves into a nice lemony finish. I dont get alot of honey, maybe a little after the initial clove flavor. Somewhat sour on the palate and super carbonated, something reminiscent of a Belgian I guess. I thought it was good, and would probably drink it again if given the chance.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Bottle Barn. Aroma is sort of a dark honey. Or brown sugar combined with honey. Hazy amber gold color with a white head that didn’t stick. A bit thin in body, with somewhat fizzy carbonation. The basic flavor is wheat, I can taste suggestions of honey, but au fonde Brett seems to be present. I’m wondering whether the bottling process is picking up Brett. Seems the draft is sweet? If you put this up against some Russian River Brett ales, or some flemish sour ales, this would be a real competitor. Finishes quite dry, with medium sour. And honey still seems to be present. Was this a happy accident? Or is the sour intended?

22 oz bottle: Purchased at Mesa Liquor. This had a very sour and awful taste as if it was expried but i dont know. The bottle was very clean and new with a clean label so i thought it was a new release but i cant tell. Real bad
