    Opaque orange, no foam. Honey aroma. Honey and caramel in taste, strange mix. Wheat there to. Not a beer to my liking, as the other one from this brewery. (Houston 201501)

    A murky golden colored beer wuth a thre fingered frothy textured, white head that in rising promises good things. But that head goes limp quickly leaving a thin ringlet. Stale honey and light bourbon in the nose. Honey dominates in the tasting. Not much depth in this nearly watery beer.

    Poured out a cloudy gold and unfiltered looking with a nice white head. The aroma is honey, mild wheat an a funky vanilla smell. The mouthfeel is smooth but a little thin for my taste. The taste is just like the aroma, honey,wheat and funky vanilla.

    I had this at Jack Brown' Beer & Burger Joint in Roanoke, VA. This beer was not for me. Way too much honey, the "bourbon" tasted like artificial vanilla extract, and the aroma was that of a Ricola lossange. Not my thing.

    12-pack in Vermont. Pours a slight hazed golgen colour with a white cap, average retention and mild dirty lace. Sweet nose with lots of fake vanilla. Pretty much the same for the taste with mild honey sweetness, light caramel malt, hints of chocolate and vanilla that lingers. Interesting overall, but not much of burbon. Does get heavy on the stomach eventually. Did not finish the 12-pack.

    One of the better Shock Tops. Sort of like the Belgian White, but minus the citrus, a little darker wheat, and with bourbon cask flavor. The bourbon flavor does seem a little artificial or not the kind you get with aging on barrels. On the other hand, it's not a $3-6 beer. Not overly sweet, although the honey is definitely in there. I would try this again, especially on tap in a restaurant if the beer selections are weak.
