3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Bottle. Nose lightly grainy, wheaten, low cream and lemon, faintly floral. Medium sweetness in the mouth, no bitterness, floral honey up top, some lemon and fresh cream, candy, light but rounding spice. Medium body, crisp but not aggressive, has a nice refreshing aspect. [2013.05.20: 3.3]
Man, on the second time around, this is really good! Tons of flowery honey, sugary glazing like you might find on a Danish [pastry]. Not so much refreshing as incredibly satisfying as a dessert. [2013.08.05: 3.5]

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Aroma of dry wheat and citrus. Cloudy gold, white head - looks like a wheat beer should. Wheat and honey go nicely together, honey flavor lingers in aftertaste. Slight spice notes - could be the chamomile Not too much carbonation, which often happens with wheats. Quite good.

Draught. This is a slightly sweet wheat with lots of mouthfeel and interesting character.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a moderate white head. Nose is light and filled with wheat, but not a lot else. Taste is a bit thick and very slightly sweet with just a hint of floral. Not great, but drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Significant downrating (3.6 to 2.5) on my second time having this. Just too sweet with no hardiness to back it up. It’s closer to an apple juice than a substantive wheat beer. The honey scent is very pleasant, but it doesn’t work out so well on the palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/2/13
Aroma: The nose is big on honey and floral notes, with wheat and orange peel hiding behind the honey
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange color with a white head and some spotty, light lace
Flavor: The taste is quite sweet, heavy honey, like the nose, with wheat and floral flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a sticky, cloying feel, and a somewhat fizzy carbonation
This is kind of an odd one. Why would you put so much honey into a wheat beer? I do enjoy honey on occasion, but it doesn’t fit here in this quantity. It comes off too sweet and cloying.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fairly bland, steely aroma of yeasty bread. The flavor tho is very nice and complex - malted wheat, a dash of citrus, and plenty of organic Vermont honey. Clearly one of the better wheat brews, and one of my favorites from Wolaver’s.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-apricot color with a small foamy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was tart orange, lemon, chalk and pepper. The flavor is sweet honey and chamomile with a faint vague herbal element and notes of orange and chalk. Long dryish honey, chamomile and orange. Better tasting than I expected but the is an oddness to it that is difficult to identify. Moderately full body. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color was darker than I expected, usually wheats are yellow, this is gold. Thin white head. Aroma is very floral and so is the taste, but not like an IPA, more like a bouquet. It has an enjoyable sweetness to it as well. Very much liked this. Nice twist on the wheat style beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours like an American wheat -- hazy golden-yellow, still, thin-topped. Drinks with an assertive spiciness for such a "light" beer, the chamomile making its presence felt, almost stingingly. There’s a sweet citrusy undertow that prevails. (#4746, 8/26/2012)
