Mike Hess Brewing 'Jucundus' Orange Honey Wheat. 6% abv. 24 IBU. Pale yellow in color. One finger of white head that slowly recedes to a sustaining collar. Good retention and lacing. Nose of honey, crackers, floral, faint citrus background. Front taste of honey, sweet light malt, some bitter hop notes. Aftertaste of honey, lingering citrus peel, orange. Light-medium body. Mouthfeel is bright, bubbly, tangy.

This is an excellent honey beer, with the honey very present from the aroma on down, and the citrus flavors shining through in the aftertaste. It's easy-drinking without being watery, and approachable without lacking in flavor. Highly recommended.

From the brewery:

"Conjure up a warm, sunny day with this crisp, light bodied American wheat beer, brewed with one kg per barrel if 100% U.S.A. orange blossom honey and California orange peel. This refreshing ale brewed with spices has a smooth, citrusy finish - a delightful session-worthy beer."
