Bottle. I’m not crazy about the label and have never liked the name Wolaver’s. Hazy brew, yellow-ish orange. Not great head for me. This isn’t a tasteless summer wheat. The honey really comes through as well as something floral (but not really Chamomile, thank goodness). Slightly problematic after taste. Pretty decent.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet summer wildflowers and honey aromas. Thin with sweet honey and chamomile upfront turning to slightly sour hay in the lasting finish.

Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a thin white head, aroma has honey, lemongrass, and bananas, starts and ends lightly sweet with a crisp ending, lightly bodied,good carbonation, light texture, and very drinkable. I really enjoyed this one after opening the pool.

Hazy amber-orange appearance; minimal white head. Scents of honey and floral notes. Taste hints of flower, honey - sweet with mild bitterness.

From tap at Gaslight, NJ. Pours hazy orange with a small, creamy and white head. Aroma is mild citric and fruity. Spiced and wheaty, slight cinnamon mixed with a mild yeasty note. Spiced and rather dry finish. Herbal lasting impression into the far finish.

MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light orange with little head, a slight haze and no active carbonation bubbles. Aromas are OK... chamomile flower tea, honey and light pear is about it. Flavor is sweet... honey and pear with a little bit of floral chamomile that picks up in the finish. I guess it would be good if it were what I was looking for...

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Aroma of honey and tea. Light taste of amber malt, honey. Very consistent throughout. Smooth. Interesting though not amazing.

murphym45 (779) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle, pours orange with a bit of haze. Very interesting aroma with floral notes, a bit of honey, grainy. Light body, hint of sweetness, more honey. Interesting.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet and sugary floral honey and herbal nose. Starts with average fullness and fine carbonation with some sugary sweetness and floral honey flavor before a drier, slightly biscuity finish. Would be better with a more complex sweetness or a little more body for balance.

From the bottle pours a little like hefe. At the end of the pour a couple of heavy yeast glob hit the drink and slowly fall to the bottom of the drink. Smell is a little sweet, perhaps like honey. Weird initial don’t know what to think flavor but then it begins to grow on me. It has some pokingly interesting tart thing going on in the background and this effect sticks around after you swallow the gulp. I think I like this, yes, has a interesting tingle about itself. If the chamomile or honey has added the zing, whatever, so be it and I like it. The co2 is augmented by this almost hidden tart backfeel. Turns an otherwise wheat ale into something special. I also want to say there is very little ale bitterness in this one. Some sizzly acid thing going on fer sure. I like sour beers and this is interestilngly tart. Good overall wolavers beer experience, could drink another of this one.
