2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light gold with a large foamy head. Aroma is not "pronounced" as claimed, but rather very dull, faintly of hops and honey. Flavor is not bad: Initially metallic, but then indeed of honey and a surpringly big floral flavor, like sweet nectar from a ripe flower. I can actually taste the booze in this one, so I was shocked to see that this is only 5.6%. It’s neither a good or a bad thing in this case, just curious. Palate is medium, average, though better than expected. This stuff is not half bad. I doubt I’ll ever have again, but still better than I anticipated. Overall, good minus.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden appearance with a white head. The aroma contains honey, lemons, and a hint of corn. The flavor contains some corn, bready notes, and lemons. The finish is slightly sour. Luckily this isn’t the honey bomb that Mich Honey Lager is but still not a very good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep golden pour with a creamy whte head and lace. Aroma is just what the name says. Cloying sweetness, honey, and no bitter. Light/medium bodied with aggressive carbonation. A tad too sweet for my taste but seems like it would be an excellent chick beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold with a smooth white head that lasts several minutes. Smells of wheat, somewhat peppery, and citrusy. Tastes of honey, wheat malt, slight spiciness. Sweet and nutty in the finish. Decent body. Not too sweet. Not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is very sweet and filled with honey. I really did not even have to bring the glass to my nose, I could smell it as i was pouring it. Flavor is again honey but way over the top. Finish is very sweet and sticky. I won’t be needing another one of these.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden-orange with a small white head that is mostly diminishing. Appears very sparkling with lots of bubbles streaming up the sides of the glass. Aroma is surprisingly rich with honey - typically a lot of the honey characteristics ferment out, so it is kind of rare to find this much in the aroma. (I wonder if honey was added after primary fermentation, or if this is honey flavoring...) A little wet grain and spice at the tail end of the nose as well. Flavor is very sweet (now I’m convinced this must be honey flavoring), bordering on cloyingly sweet. Wheat and cookie malts lend a nice smoothness to the finish. Aftertaste is sweet with some wet hay at the tail end. Not offensive, and contains a decent amount of flavor, but it all feels artificial in the end.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their Wheat Sampler. Pours a glistening dark golden with a quickly fading white head. Sweet aroma with hints of honey - not bad. Flavor has the same refreshing sweetness with a detectable level of honey and a hint of citrus. Not too syrupy sweet. Very refreshing and would make a good beer for bar-b-q. Mouthfeel - about expected for the style. Overall - decent.
