COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like the longer days ahead, silky, smooth Michelob Honey Wheat brightens many a spirit. This filtered crystal weisse is brewed with wheat barley malts and orange blossom honey, creating a pronounced floral aroma with hints of citrus. Pour this golden ale in a tall, wide-mouthed glass and allow yourself a moment to stop and smell.

Golden color with a small white head. Sweet aroma dominated by honey. Flavor is honey and some wheat; this was a very simple beer that was dominated from start to finish by honey and nothing else. Not one of the better Michelobs (not that they are great to begin with).

Golden in color with an ample white head. Aroma is sweet, hint of honey, slight citrus perhaps lemon. Flavor is sweet honey, some bread, slight citrus. Finish is tacky sweet, cloying. Too much sweet for my taste

This beer is brewed with wheat barley malts and orange blossom honey. The result is a too sweet concoction that tastes like it has been left out in the sun, or the truck to long. It wins my award for "Best Imitation of Pennsylvania Style Ice Beer". This is a horrible brew by Michelob, clearly the worst of the Michelob Wheat Sampler Pack.

~Pours a clear golden amber with creamy white head. ~Aroma of honey, malt, and hops. Has a rather sweet scent. ~Honey and malt flavor with light citrus. ~Smooth texture with fizziness. Sweet than slightly bitter finish. ~Pretty decent brew. Good for what it is. An easy sipping summer brew.

Blah. Iím not a big fan of honey wheat beers and this is no exception. Aroma was nice. Grainy and wheaty with a lot of honey. Pour was a nice medium gold with not many bubbles and a thin white ring for a head. Taste was too sweet with the honey dominating. Thereís not much else going on. Nice for an AB beer, but thatís about it.

bubbleflubber (1743) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Pours clear golden into the glass, with an initial CO2-induced head that diminishes to a thin white ring that reduces to nothing. The nose is of manufactured sweetness... cloying yet light.... makes for an interesting invitation. Unfortunately, this is where the interest stops. The flavors are TOTALLY sucrose-manufactured sweetness, and extremely cloying. There is an underlying honey-wheat aspect, but itís been severely exaggerated. Sweet macro corn notes hit the finish of this, and coupled with a light, highly-carbonated mouthfeel, it just feels too manufactured for the Michelob Wheat sampler, and for the style.

Beery aroma. Poured a pretty golden yellow color, but wheat beer? Sure donít look like one. Anyway flavor is sweet.. the honey is there and it ainít hiding. Not bad.. donít know if this might actually be their honey lager repackaged but I donít really think so ícause this one is better than I remember the honey lager.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Wheaty aroma has a strong undertone of honey, fairly sweet but not cloying. It pours a slightly hazy honey golden with a fine-bubbled but not persistent head. Flavor is rather sweet, like honey, with wheaty and malty tones. Texture is silky smooth and rather fizzy.

Sampled at Springslickerís Fish Fry í09. Bottle courtesy of Lithy. Clear yellow pour with white head. Sweet honey corn through and through.Pretty bad. I would take a dundeeís honey brown over this any day. The mich dunkel wiess was okay though.

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Pours gold with a light white head. Smells of honey and lemon. Flavor is strong honey a little mint and sugar but mostly an over whelming taste of honey. A poultry beer.
