SpecialBrew99 (57) - grand blanc, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2002
This was probably my favorite honey beer. Had a lot of honey flavor, unlike some where it is just barely a hint of it. I would recommend it if you like JD or something like that.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear light amber with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Taste of the same with some honey coming through. No wheat anywhere. This light bodied brew is not too shabby.

philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Honey Wheat Ale--1997 12 oz. Bottle. 4.80% ABV. (2.75 / 5.0) Wheat Ale--Honey. Big Pellicle, very hazy red-brown golden color. Honey dry finish. Good body. More like a honey amber than wheat. Low on hops and fruit flavors. Honey Wheat--1998 12 oz. Bottle. 4.80% ABV. (3.75 / 5.0) Wheat Ale--Honey. Rich amber color gradually clouds as tight wheat pellicle dissolves. Very nice thick honey clover malt body. Honey dry, but rich, finish. Sampled 10/7/1998.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 6, 2009
A sweet beer with a subtle amount of honey. A decent summer sipper. Please note that many of these old ratings did not have appearance and palate scores so they are defaulted to receive 3s.

One of the gateway brews for me also. I remember liking this one; as I cannot stand wheat beers this was out of the ordinary.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Sweet and musty honey and wheat aroma. Hazy golden body with lots of bubbly carbonation and generous white head that lasts forever. Lightly sweet flavour has some doughy characteristics and citrus notes with very light bitterness. Strong carbonation to the light, refreshing body. Sampled in Dallas, 2001. Bottle. Entered from notes.

mjg74 (2486) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 3, 2005
A favorite of mine from the past. Pete’s was a gateway brand for me. One of the few honey brews I have tried that has a honey flavor that actually worked. I remember buying a bomber of this one time and going to a friends baseball league at a local high school. They got kicked out of the league because I was drinking this in the dugout. Good times.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2004
A very sweet sugar flavor, that I guess is supposed to be the honey. Light and sweet overall, not too great, tastes like an artificial blend of cane sugar and malts.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 24, 2004
(Bottle) Pousr a golden color with a white head. Has a wheat taste with a hint of honey.

DocLock (7696) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2004
Some honey flavor and aroma, but this beer seemed watery and had very little complexity. Another disappointment from Pete's.
