2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow- not straw, yellow- with moderately strong effervescence and a snowy head. Mild sourdough bread and green banana aroma, some bubblegum, and very subtle honey if you think about it real hard. Wheaty, grassy twang with a hint of funk and bitterness. Some peppery notes emerged too late, towards the end of the glass. Light bodied and fairly crisp. Vegetal, green twiggy aftertaste. Uncapping the bottle was the most exciting part.

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.
