12 oz at lithyís March to 1000 tasting. Clear golden with a small lasting head. Aroma is honey and light grain. Taste is all honey with maybe some lemony hop on the finish. Light body is somehow dryish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Smells of wheat and honey--to be expected. Not much head here. Faint honey flavor. Tastes mass-produced--to be expected.

bottle- FIRST DRINK- Not used to wheat ales being so clear, the bottle says itís a filtered wheat ale. Flavor is weak, altough i definitely taste honey, but it tastes like itís lacking something. LAST DRINK- Subtle creamyness as it warms, but not enough to save this bland brew.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a complex golden color with a large white head that only last 5 minutes. Light malt aroma and a light corn tasted. Perfectly matched with its honeycomb, smacks, corn malt, corn syrup, garbage flavor. just hard to drink all around. thatís why i tastes these in shot glasses, cuz im smart.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This is from the Michelob wheat sampler pack...first one I tried out of them. I really regret that decision. To be fair Iíve never tried a honey beer before, but this was so disappointing. The appearance was a nice wheaty gold with a 3 inch white head that disappeared within a few minutes. By looks alone I was expecting something delicious. The aroma was decentóthin with a lot of "fake" honey. HOWEVER, the taste was terrible: lack of any wheat notes, far too sweet and thin with an artificial honey taste, no alcohol presence I could detect.I had trouble finishing this, it was that unenjoyable. It went down smooth, but almost gagged me with its syruppy texture. I really hope the others in the pack are considerably better. Although itís rough to admit, I would prefer a Rolling Rock or any typical macro brew over this. Maybe I just donít like honey beers overall, but I donít plan on trying this one again.

On tap at Chanhassen American Legion. Hazy gold color with white head. Sweet honey-wheat aroma. Taste is very sweet, lots of honey and floral flavors, somewhat dry wheaty finish. Tastes a lot like liquid Honey Nut Cherrios. This is pretty good, but got sickingly sweet after sharing a few pitchers w/ friends.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light golden color with a smallish off-white head. Grain, wheat and hint of euro lager (hops?). Very sweet and rather chewy flavors. Wheat and light apricot. A really light syrup quality, and I use quality in a characteristic verses good way. For me this starts to get nearly sickeningly sweet and cloying. No refreshment in this wheat ale.

Average beer. I could see this bringing a major hangover on if I drank too many of them. For those that like fruit or sweet beers you will enjoy this. I have never been a sweet beer drinker so my opinion is biased. While I would not purchase this beer, it is not offensive. Michelob is actually doing a decent job these days.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light golden color with a small white froth. Aroma is exactly the name of the beer, tons of honey and tons of wheat. Not awful but pretty damn sweet and boring. A bit grainy as well that creates some astringency. Flavor starts with some sugary malts soaking in honey, man the honey just wonít quit. Gets a bit of a floral hoppiness in the finish with a bleck grain aftertaste. Light to medium body and a fizzy carbonation. Way too sweet and grainy
