SUMMER HONEY WEAT
SUMMER HONEY WEAT
AHHH...SUMMER HONEY WHEAT AT LAST.
When we first opened our doors in 1995, our summer seasonal was one of the first beers we brewed. Back then, we called it Honey Blonde Ale, and it was a favorite of baseball fans coming to a game during the heat of the Colorado summer. It took an extended summer break in 1999, reappearing in 2006 in time to win a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival® under the name Blue Moon Honeymoon in the Specialty Honey Lager or Ale Category. In 2010, it became known as Blue Moon® Summer Honey Wheat Ale.
The beer with more name changes than a professional athlete, today Blue Moon® Summer Honey Wheat is crafted with clover honey and orange peel for a refreshing taste that makes the most of sun-soaked days.

INGREDIENTS AND PROFILE
Malts: Pale, Winter White Wheat

Original Gravity: 12º Plato
We recommend pouring Summer Honey Wheat in our signature Blue Moon® glass to accentuate the beer’s golden honey color and allow room for a creamy, white head.
As golden as the summer sun with a white, creamy head. May have a slight amount of haze from the wheat.
Take in that rich clover honey aroma. It blends well with the light, biscuity malt notes.
Slightly sweet clover honey taste with a hint of citrus. Very light biscuity malt taste with a low hop bitterness to provide balance.
A light-bodied ale with a medium level of carbonation to balance the taste of wheat and honey.
A light, sweet honey finish with subtle citrus notes to heighten the refreshing character of this ale.
The subtle flavors of clover honey and orange peel pair well with grilled summer fare such as marinated chicken or pork with honey mustard sauce.
IF WE HAD A MANTEL, THESE WOULD BE ON IT.
