1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. It’s very hard to make out anything except an aftertaste which has a very mild flavor, and has an aftertaste of heavy corn syrup. Worth trying once.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2010 Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head and an aroma of slightly sweetened hops and a hint of honey. Tastes of a mild honey with a slightly bitter/hoppy aftertaste. Has a mild effervescence. Overall, it’s a bit strange, but pretty good at the same time. I can’t see this replacing good old fashioned beer for me, but it’s not bad for a change.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(12oz bottle) Pours a very clean yellow, with head that fades like soda. Doesn’t resemble a wheat beer as it is completely clear. Nose isn’t bad actually, clove, spices, honey, and white pepper abound. Taste though is another story, cloyingly sweet of an artificial honey taste, orange peel, can taste the yeast wanting to come through like a Belgian, but doesn’t quite get there. Not a terrible beer and certainly better than most BMC stuff, but not great.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A light bodied beer. Seemed very normal. I couldn’t taste much honey, but maybe some in the aroma. Not horrible but I expected a little more.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with a small head. Sweet aroma of honey. A bit thin on the palate, but this ended up being a little better than I expected. Honey flavor is definitely there, and since I like honey, this beer was fairly enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a marking of 09037-UA79. The pour is a slightly cloudy pale-yellow-light orange with a thin white head. There is a noticeable aroma of honey and light hops. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. The taste seems to have more honey sweetness than anything else although there is a little bitter hoppiness in it. I won’t be quite as harsh as some other reviewers but I agree it could have been better.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is sweet with honey, adjunct malt, and fruit. The appearance is golden with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma and not that good. The palate is thin but OK. The beer overall is not that good.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Pat’s. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose is pale malt, mild honey and spices. Tastes caro syrupy, cloying and sweet, with mild honey, orangy fruit notes, but has an off medicinal quality to it. Pass.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
had this at a party with some friends, taste of the malt and honey seemed a bit too over sweet with the honey flavor being sticky instead of complementary. no hop flavor at all, try it if you find one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A filtered wheat beer, why bother. I am reminded of the first time I tried Leinie’s Honey Weiss and insisting that the bartender had poured me a Miller Lite instead, oh those were the days.
A medicinal quality in the aroma was very off-putting. A residual sugar taste with a very mild flavor. Oddly not very light nor refreshing, much to syrupy.
