RATINGS: 51   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.62/5   ABV: -
This is an unfiltered wheat beer light in color and low bitterness. This refreshing beer is brewed with wheat and barley pale in color. The wheat and barley is brewed using a temperature controlled step mash. In doing this we utilize the proteins and enzymes necessary to convert sugars for fermentation.

The use of almond was intriguing but I donít think I could even tell it was in the beer. Honey contributed some sweetness, nothing cloying but nothing unique.

"double pint - way too similar to old johnnie (amber ale) for a style thatís supposed to be so different. not alot of weisse character at all, but muddled malts, maybe some wheat. there was a hint of honey and nut, but overall this is a non-offensive macro generic."

Aluminum can from SqB Liquor: Poured a glowing yellow liquid that had millions of specs of dust floating inside while the head was a frothy head that quickly fizzed out. Aroma is weak and has nothing other than a hint of sweetness possibly honey? The flavor is just as bland and boring and only an artificial almond taste.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Can:   Fiery amber, slightly hazy, little whispy white frothy head, little lacing.   Dull mealy nose, a bit wheaty, perhaps with some honey.   Not terribly bright.   Slight wheaty sweetness on the tongue, although it falls off quickly.   Backside is mealy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, perhaps a bit more.   Finishes a bit mealy, sweetness has faded, dull honey like what aspects remain.   Not crisp or bright.   Not bad, but pretty pedestrian.

Quart can. Yeah, quart can. When you really want to tell the world youíre a drunken buffoon, this is the whole kit. You donít even need a paper bag. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a loose white head. Mild honey and floral nose, with a little bit of that laundry smell underneath from the wheat. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Pretty restrained mid palate, a little sweet, a little bread-crust-y. Mild honey finish. Not much happening here.

Bottle. Decent beer with some honey and nut flavors. Nothing stands out but definitely drinkable. Use to pick-up a 6-pack on the way to the cabin every weekend.

32 oz can poured a clear gold with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of wheat, floral notes, berries and honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, berries and light honey with a crisp dry finish.

Double pint can. Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Pretty bland and boring - basically a light lager with just a touch of wheat and sweetness. Not good, not bad, just meh.

This has so little flavor to me that when I finally poured it into a glass to rate the appearance I was shocked at how cloudy murky it is. Not any real honey or sweetness like many honey beers, and I may get a tiny bit of nuttiness but I donít know. Mostly insignificant to me. Though some of the flavor frome the Olde Johnnie was butter at least it tasted like something.

A relatively simple wheat beer with notes of honey. The almond isnít noticeable. Drinkable and decent, but nothing special.
