"DRAKE’S: Solid use of the honey, which was pleasantly floral on the nose and nicely sweet on the palate. Slightly hoppier than most weak wheats that use honey to cover up a bad beer. Not a favorite style, but done well."

Pale golden pour with a white head. Sweet malt, bread, and grain aromas. A hint of floral honey, some yeast, and a touch of grass. Mild citrus quality and on the whole, a bit watery. The flavor is on the bland and watery side. Some bread, wheat, and hints of honey with an overall grainy flavor. Some citrus peel notes, a touch of grass, and very light yeast.

M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet honey finish.
D - Very drinkable. Decent wheat beer with a touch more more flavor than others.

...on tap at the berkley location. Looked a clear yellow with no head. Nose had slight honey aroma, some yeast. Way to thin, like the hef I tried, slight wheat and honey flavor, with a very dry finish. Lacks flavor, body, and mouthfeel. Weak.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewpub. A hazy amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey and caramel as well as light notes of wheat. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for me, and with strong notes of honey, probably pretty high FG, let it ferment lower, please. Behind the honey there are notes of wheat and flowers, leading to a dry wheaty finish, where the sweetness lingers.
