Draft at the brewery with Linh. Pours a light golden orange body with light white lacing. Aroma is sweet honey and wheat. Mouthfeel is refreshing and sessionable. The honey is used incredibly well here, maybe the best honey wheat ale.

Draft at the brewery. Cloudy orange pour, frothy off white head. Wheat, dry honey (only lightly sweet), orange peel, lemon, and grain. Very dry for the style, and the additions work well. A nice wheat, I have not had a good one like this for a long time.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy apricot color, white head. Here is a style that is often just screwed up beyond belief. But Hess has managed to corral so much rich, fresh honey into this aroma and flavor with out any cloying or annoying sweetness. Just a superb brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a big, foamy white head. Aromas are hugely pungent with floral honey notes, citronella and lemon verbena. Tea. Very pleasant despite those descriptors. Flavors are spicy, floral, honey, curacao, and grainy. Pretty good. Light bodied, medium dry with slightly livelier bubbles.
