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.

2.7 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.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden with a small frothy white head that leaves decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel The taste is a watery malt with caramel, honey and light hops. Not much goin on with this one.

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.

Well, there is a lot of honey, no question about that. Smells like honey and the flavor is honey and what? Juicy Fruit gum? Orange Kool-aid? Overbearingly sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle given to me by a friend who didn’t want to drink any more of this. Clear yellowish gold with a big white head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey and lager yeast. Honey and sweet grainy malt in the flavor. A bit thin on the finish, but other than that more flavorful than I expected.

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.

1.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
From a Michelob sampler pack. The body is deep gold with a huge lightly off white head on top. The nose is fresh banana meat and clove. There is not much else to smell. The body is fairly highly carbonated and a little bit sticky. The taste is lip smacking and disgusting sweet. Did they add a bunch of honey after fermentation? There is a little bit of banana and some sweet potato. This is pretty disgusting almost a drain pour. I am guessing that this targets those that normally drink alcopops. Wow, Bud fails huge on their wheat beers.

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.
