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)

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma and appearance were nothing substantial. But, starting with the taste this ale became very refreshing. Certainly the honey was present and soothed the overall t/p/o. I did’t sense too many esters but those that were did well. Smooth and i,pressive.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
this poured a cloudy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was bland wheat, light floal notes and honey. Flavor was lots and lots of honey, light wheat base and some flower notes. Not my cup of tea.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a creamy white head. Mild floral aroma - seems to be a hint of citrus - something honey lurks. Med body. Honey no longer lurks - it’s the principal start. Sort of overwhelms the floral. There’s enough sweet to stop this from being dry. Certainly the honeyest beer I can recall. Toss in some dead twigs and it could be a dogfish.
