Dark straw colour. Fruity-grainy aroma. Cardboardy, minerally taste. Light and quick.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2005
Pale yellow, grassy aroma not much in the way of honey in the nose. Taste has honey? Not so much. It tastes as though someone may have accidentally spilled some hops in this, ah well he probably got fired for that.Next!

Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of pale malt with a touch of honey. No wheat obvious in the aroma. Flavour is okay, pale malt, honey, and a bit of wheaty dryness. Has a clean, if sweet, finish. A simple, highly drinkable beer that’s refreshing and thirst-quenching.

CapFlu (4516) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2004
(Druaght) Sampled at the Manchester Pub & Grill in Saskatoon. Thin, quick-dissipating, white head and a golden body. Is this on NITROGEN? The bubbles do seem awefully small? Honey nose with a sweet malt flavour. Cereal finish. Average.

jsquire (3464) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Light golden color out of the can. Big, rocky white head. Honey/syrup nose. Light mouthfeel. Lots of sweet in this beer, and you can tell the honey. Very easy to chug, and refreshing when very cold. Honey gets a little cloying as it warms. Really not much to this beer. Thanks to presario for the can.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2003
Golden colour, large white head, more pillowy then the others I've tried from this brewery. Typical grainy grass clipping aroma as from all the others I've sampled from here. Perhaps a bit more malty. Sweet palate syrupy. No real disernable wheatiness but it's there. Maybe some honey. Unimpressive. But the best I've tried from this brewery.

Why do they use words like 'honey' and 'wheat'? Only marketing purposes explain. Sweet tasting--but it does not resemble any form of wheat beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2003
Body is a darker golden shade and clear. Head started large but quickly faded to small white foam with bubbles. Aroma of wheat, grain and alcohol. Flavour is watery but there are hints of honey and wheat although not enough kick. Finsih is sweet and tangy.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2003
Not a great wheat beer, not a good honey beer. Light golden colour. The honey is in there but tastes like a flavoured coors light.
