Have tried to Marble beers before and like them both. This one piqued my interest when I saw that it was “accented with New Mexico Wildflower Honey.” Nice way to start out the night.
Poured a yellow, golden, hazy color with two 1-to-2 fingers of frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, which I could see through the haze. Below average spotty lacing. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.50)
Smelled coriander, honey, grassy hops, light floral aromas, sourdough bread, hints of lime zest and orange peel. (Smell - 3.50)
Taste was a tad better, getting that wildflower honey, grassy hops, coriander, sourdough bread, corn cereal, grainy floral hops, citrus zest, hints of orange peel and a touch of tart honeydew melon. Some unknown spiciness as well. (Taste - 3.50)
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt, grainy finish. (Feel - 3.75)
OK for the style, but nothing special. Honey really shines here. Was hoping for more. (Overall - 3.50)

Tap@Brewery. Pours hazy golden color, low hop profile with a sweet honey nose, nicely balanced on the palate with gobs of honey nougat flavors. Overall, this is a beer for those who don’t drink beer, but will start drinking beer after tasting this nice summer gem.
