So I guess that makes me the first. Cool—but it’s kind of a pain, as well. I can’t find anything that indicates what percentage of alcohol it has, for instance. (I’d guess about 5.5%.) (Actually, I received the official press release today, which gives a bit more detail.)
This beer is billed as being brewed with orange blossom honey, from the orange orchards of Florida and California.
Appearance: Clear golden color with pure white head on the pour.
Smell: Pretty light, a touch of sweet and a hint of grass, but otherwise it’s fairly nondescript.
Taste: Crisp and sweet—bordering on cloying. That sweetness definitely comes from a light honey. (Though not at all dry like a mead.) A bit floral, with wheat-slash-grass notes.
Mouthfeel: Light, effervescent, crisp and sticky-sweet.
Overall: Surprisingly sweet; okay for a wheat beer but it’s not my favorite—the cloying sweetness detracts from the beer for me.
