Dull and disappointing aroma, which shows little character comes out of the yellow body and white froth. Nothing balanced about it. Understated spiced character hardly comes through. A percentage of wheat malt could make it a bit more balanced. It’s husky and could be sweeter. Gross.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Bottled. Pours a hazy, Belgian wit side of yellow with a big white head that leaves heavy lacing. Honey and malt nose. Tastes like honey and water. Watered down honey really. Then there’s honey...and water. Aftertaste is honey with some water. They told me it had honey and water in it, didn’t they?

Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, a tiny touch of hops, and honey sweetness. Flavor is sorta hoppy and then goes sweet, too sweet. To much honey for me I think, not a bad beer overall. Better than Portland honey and Michelob Honey.

crsytal clear, no head, tart malts, mild hops, good malt finish, caramel, oh just look at that bear so full of youthful zeal and wonder, sooner or later he’ll have to settle down and get a job like the rest of us, get a job in a cubicle along with a drinking problem and maybe some occasional smack that bear is a philosopher

The label is different on my bottle. The bear is not standing up. The body is medium gold with a bright white head. The aroma is light grapefruit with some There is also a little dry woody character. There is a hazelnut note. The taste is bread crust with some light toasted almonds. There is also a little hint of spicy ginger. A nice refreshing summer beer.

amber in color with a medimum off white head, the aroma is complex honey dominates the sense, but it is blended with a light hoppy scent. mmmmmmmm. tempting, spicey immediatly on the palate but it smooths out just as quickly. it is light and can be easy drank. refreshing. great seasonal beer.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours golden with thin white head. It has very little aroma, there are scents of hops, honey, and maybe a little yeast.
Flavor is a little sweet, but not too much.
It does have a very Nice palate.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is actually rather minty, even moreso than honey. Pours a transparent yellow with a small white head. Flavor is citrusy with some light honey. Honey sweetness gets slightly stronger in the finish with a hint of bitterness and light acidity. Antother refreshing and drinkable beer, but does nothing to distinguish itself.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with Indiana_Red - Thanks Ken! - Pours golden with a short white foamy head. Aroma of sweet honey over caramel malts. Flavor is malty with honey overtones and a touch of lemon and spice. Light hops finish the brew. Palate is light but not too watery. Crisp and clean. A pretty nice summer drink.

3.5
PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - AUG 25, 2005
Pours golden with a thin white head. Flavor is sweet, but not overbearing. Flavors of honey, lemon, and a hint of spice. Hops are mild, which is expected in a summer ale. I expected this to be slightly watery, but I found this to have a slight creaminess. Finished crisp. I found this to be a very good summer ale.
