Description 

Honey and wheat have always gone well together. Our Honey Wheat kit combines the aromatic flavor of wild blackberry honey with the soft flavor of wheat. The result is a refreshing wheat beer with real flavor, as it not only has the soft maltiness of wheat, but also the crisp flavor of blackberry honey, accented by selected imported hops. A wheat beer for those who like a refreshing wheat beer, but want a little more taste (and freshness) than available in standard micro brewed wheat offerings. Alcohol: 5%, IBU's 32.

Includes 8 lbs. of our blended wheat extract and blackberry honey, 125 ml of liquid wheat beer yeast, flavoring and aromatic hops, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.052. Ease of Brewing: Beginner

Honey Wheat Kit
I have just had a couple after aging 5 weeks.  A little on the bitter side for me but overall pretty good.  I will see how the next few go.  I could not really taste any of the honey flavor, maybe needs a bit more honey in it

Not What I expected
I had a few problems with this beer, but not on the brewing side. First the yeast is an American wheat yeast and was TWO months past Wyeast's printed date.
The extract came in an unbranded clear plastic pouch, not the Williams one. The color of the extract was dark and turned out not the freshest LME.

There was another pouch for the Honey and that is where I can start to compliment the beer itself. After everything was said and done, I enjoyed a real nice flavor from the blackberry honey. I made a starter, don't like stressing the yeast and fermented at 63.

Three weeks in primary and 6 weeks warm condition to carb and get out that old extract funk. 1-2 Weeks cold.

It is a good example of American Wheat with a slightly tart and honeycomb medley. It was best at the 2 week mark of cold conditioning.

Response from William's:  The date codes printed on Wyeast packs are the date the yeast was manufactured, not expiration dates.

The BEST beer ever
I loved the full bodied flavor of this beer.  Easy to brew and tastes wonderful.  I will be ordering this kit again.  I love wheat beer and this is one of the best beers I have tasted.  Careful with boil overs.  Heat up slowly.  I will be ordering this kit again.

Very nice wheat beer
My fiancé and I are absolute beer lovers and this Honey Wheat kit I made especially for her.   We love it-very nice clear wheat taste, just a touch of sweetness from the honey, and just enough on the light side to make it an easy drinking beer.  I've been a brewer for a few years and have stuck mostly to extract brews (due to time and equipment restrictions), but this kit makes a very nice beer.  As others have stated in review, a blow-off tube is recommended as this yeast strain produces a very active and robust fermentation.  Not that you can't complete it with your standard three piece bubbler, just expect to have to pop it off and clean it once or twice.  Happy brewing!

A must have
As a kit over all I am a great fan of William's and their selection.  This one is a must have.  Excellent body and finish. Good head retention.  A nice smooth slightly fruity beer, with a dry finish to it. I couldn't keep this one around. Make a double batch if you have the room. You won't be disappointed. Try to control the temp in the room and you won't need a blow-off tube. The cooler side of the ferment 66-67 degrees worked fine for me.  I try to do this for all of your honey/fruit style beers. Haven't had a problem yet.
