2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured a yellowish color with a white head. The aroma was honey with a touch of some malt. The taste was sweet with flavors of honey, wheat, and some malt vinegar taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft from the brewpub. A dirty tan orange color with no head. My glass was quite sour with unripe passion fruit. Some honey was taste late. Very odd and the weakest wheat offering I have had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 8/2/09. Draft from the Brewpub. Hazy with a pale golden hue. Clinging layer of white head. Wheaty floral aromas with a touch citrus. Light to medium bodied with crisp palate. Nice mellow mix of citrus, toast and honey. Easy and very sessionable. Mild effervescence. Sweet honey notes juxtaposition with the dry cereal malts. Trace hops in the finish. No flaws, but uninspiring.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy golden pour leaving some nice lacing. Grainy malt nose with some honey notes and very light spice. Pretty heinous though, a trainwreck of honey and bananas.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at the brewpub: Trailhead’s seasonal selection pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that is gone pretty quickly. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. The aroma is sweet honey with a touch of sweet malt. Light-bodied and sweet with flavors of honey and wheat, and also with an odd malt vinegar taste. The finish is sweet honey with more vinegar. Overall this was passable at first but the vinegar character really interfered with enjoying the beer more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft, at Trailhead. This seems to have nothing to do with the "St. Louis Swarm Honey Wheat," since it’s just called "Unfiltered Honey Wheat" on the brewer’s web page. Lemonade-yellow at the sides of the glass, but with a thicker orange in the center. The head fizzes out in a few minutes. A lemony weizen smell, thankfully served without a slice. Taste is okay, but too much of a standard beer with a bit of lemon zest. Mothfeel is sometimes watery, then shows a bit of substance. Light and insubstantial, but may be what’s needed on these frickin’ hot Missouri days. Looked spectacular at the start.
