Some breweries use honey in their wheat beer to allow them to use less malt and therefore create a much lighter beer. We think that’s a waste of good ingredients. We start with a standard American Style Wheat Beer (wheat malt flavor, low bitterness) and then add 1.2 gallons of honey per barrel to the kettle at the end of the boil. The result is a full malty flavor accompanied by cinnamon notes from the honey and the complex flavors that come from fermenting that much honey. This is far and away our best selling beer.

I had seen this on tap but passed it by. So I am now rating from a can as I was pleased with their canned IPA. This pours a hazy medium gold color with a long lasting bright white head. The nose has the strong notes of honey to complement a floral character. There is also some biscuit. This tastes of sweet honey and flowers. The finish is boozy almost like it has some young mead dumped into it. The honey character is overwhelming. The warming alcohol is distracting with hints of almonds.

Pours a murky gold with a very short-lived white head. Nose is straw, faint honey. Taste is fresh wheat bread, honey, faint lemon. Finishes slightly sweet but mostly dry. Palate is light to medium. Alcohol is well hidden. Refreshing and delicious. Good stuff.
