Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2008
A clear,pale gold pour with a good white head. A mild beer with a light hop flavor in the aftertaste. I expected a light, slightly sweet brew due to the honey and wheat. It was light, but bitter. No character at all. An unpleasant experience

Sample at the brewpub. Pale yellow color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lace. Wheaty aroma with fruit and malt notes. Light body with flavors of grassy wheat, fruit and grainy malt. The finish is wheaty and malty. Average overall.

Neat! I’m the first one in four years to review this. The description mentions Petit Jean honey, which is neat. I haul the ol camper to Petit Jean at least once a year. Nice to see Arkansas breweries sourcing Arkansas ingredients.

Pours a somewhat cloudy light golden color. It seems darker up at the top. Two fingers thin white head. Okay retention, decent lacing.

Aroma...are you ready for this...three words....honey butter biscuit. I smelled it upon opening the bottle, even more after the pour. A huge honey aroma, and light butter. Yeasty...if any hops, it’s floral. Or honey hops...

As good as the aroma was, the flavor isn’t quite as good. I still taste the honey butter biscuit, but the texture of the beer sort of throws it off. Yes, it’s honey, and it’s sweet. It’s pretty well carbonated, but I don’t think the carbonation helps the beer. There is some bitterness, but it comes in late.

Mouthfeel is medium light. The honey does give it maybe a little stickiness to it. They used a lot of honey in this. Easy drinking, pretty smooth.

Overall, this is really good. I can see myself taking a couple of these down to Cedar Falls. If you like honey, and I do, you should give this one a try. Absolutely I would recommend this, and I’ll probably go tomorrow to buy more.

Bottle courtesy of the one and only Butters! Pours a clear golden color with a thin creamy white head that fades pretty quickly. Aroma of big honey notes and toasted grain. The taste is honey and grainy malts. Faint hops in the finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

120z bottle scored in Memphis. Lager yeast in a Weiss? Damn, this is another stone cold loser from Diamond Bear. Grainy devolved taste, gross buttery cardboard. Chock full of off flavors, this is quite disgusting. Complete nonsense beer.

(12oz thanks to Lumpy best by 2010) pale yellow with soapy white head. Nose of paper, stale crackers, brown sugar, and light caramel. Taste of cracker, sugar, a bit hoppy, earthy, with decent carbonation and a linger of old.

Review from notes, sampled 7/12/2008 Received 6 of these recently as part of the beer of the month club my wife purchased for me. Thanks for the opportunity dear. Deep straw color with a good sized rocky white head that laces some of my glass as it disappears. Smells a little sweet a little grassy and grainy with a bit of wheat. Taste is a little sweet, a little grainy, a little grassy, a little boring. Nothing really objectionable here, but nothing really great either. Medium to light body with ample carbonation and a sweet grainy mouthfeel. Meh! Glad I got to try it, but probably wouldn’t want any more.

Cavie (4775) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is chalky and clay with a slight bit of honey. Flavor is sharply bitter, with a waxy mouthfeel and some sour grain.

12oz bottle. You know there’s gonna be trouble when the commercial description suggests adding a lemon. Bright golden color - off putting wheat and honey aroma. Taste doesn’t get much better, something is off here.

11th October 2008. GABF. Light gold beer. Watery wheat. Nothing going on here - no wonder they recommend putting a slice of lemon in it. Bleh!
