COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our honey wheat beer contains 120lbs of honey per batch. As with the raspberry this is a lighter beer and also one of our most popular. The honey gives the beer a slight sweetness and also raises the alcohol content because the yeast ferments some of the honey. We use traditional hallertau hops in producing this unfiltered wheat ale.

Super light golden in color. The honey adds a nice sweetness to the aroma. Malty flavor with a light sweetness. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

"nice feel and aroma, with the honey really smoothing things out. otherwise a pedestrian effort. very light hopping and muddled malts. if not for the honey this would be a pass, but the honey saved the day."

Bulk_Carrier (2266) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a gentle hazy golden yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than forty seconds. There was some light lacing sticking around. The smell had some light sweet honey with a tad of some graininess at the end. The taste was mainly sweet through the honey and the element of that graininess tends to subdue the sweetness. The palate had some sort of a decent sessionability about it. Overall, this was a pretty good beer worthy of having again.

10/10/2010. Sampled at the brewery. Poured cloudy yellow with a white head. Citrus and doughy aromas. Light malt, spice and grassy flavors. Meh.

ajnepple (2541) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Gold and hazy with a white patchy head. The aroma is honey, lagery, wheat malts and spices. Similar flavor, pretty sweet with a light citrus character. Light to medium body with a soft feel and a smooth finish. Not bad.

mike67 (830) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap at the brewery in Estes Park, CO. Pours clear-golden with white, short lived head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is biscuit malt, honey and hint of hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is sweet honey, pale malt and slight hints of hops. Finish is short and sweet. Forgettable brew.

JStax (3237) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to adnielsen. Pours a near opaque gold to copper with a whispy white head of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is fairly nonexistent. There are some faint wheaty notes, but that is all. The taste is really where the honey comes through. If the beer was a little thicker, I would say it was a runny honey. Mouthfeel is nice. Not much carbonation and smooth on the tongue. Overall, it isn’t too shabby.

Aroma is wheat, caramel, and honey. Pours light yellow with a small white head. Taste is wheat and honey.
