3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jun ’16. A 0.75 l bottle. It poured hazy orange body with big, but short living head. Floating particles inside. Weak aroma, honey, apple, maybe hazelnut, with bread, lightly lager-ish touch and roasted bread malts. Flavor, on the other hand, was much stronger, lightly sweet and gets more sweeter later on. Honey, light spicy, especially black pepper and lightly yeasty. Grainy malt was overwhelmed by the honey but still present a little bit. Alcohol was extremely well hidden in its full body. Long, cloying honey and sugary finish. A fine honey ale, gotta love Baladin, although not that complex as some of their other beers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A slow, but still fast enough gusher. Got it over the glass quickly enough to avoid and bad vibes around the table. Looks decent at first with a big off-white head but it doesn’t really last for long. Quickly fizzing away in to nothing really. The beer itself is mild mild blurry and orange-golden in color. Smells like honey. Honey and popcorn? Mild spiced also with traces of coriander and something I cannot find a name on. A spice. Allspice? Not sure. Quite high, too actually on the carbonation, lively almost and it’s light oily in the mouth. Not a 9 percent abv on the mouthfeel at all. Honey, sweet raspberry juice and it’s just sugary sweet all the way this. More coriander before it ends with almond essence. Nah, this was not for me. 14.01.2015

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unclear orange-ish color with a small off white head. Ok intensity in the aroma, but not that good. Medium + body and a soft carbonation. Tad sweet. Some spices, honey-ish, vinous and malty flavor. Weird and not that good really.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dorata carica, opalescente, schiuma bianca di media persistenza.
Aroma di miele molto pronunciato misto a zucchero candito e qualche nota tostata di nocciola.
Al palato stesse caratteristiche con una piacevole nota alcolica nel finale.
Corpo medio-pieno, non molto carbonata.
Piacevole ma non molto complessa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Swietne piwo metne pomaranczowe i geste, piana srednia niezbyt trwala. Mimo miodu dosc wytrawne, naturalne posmaki miodowe uzupelniaja sie doskonale z goryczka. Piwo kompletne rozgrzewajace, a alkohol niewyczuwalny. Bardzo dobrze wykorzystano tu dobrej jakosci naturalny miod.
