This beer is very rare and made in small batches. It is also very awsome from the first sip to the last! made with apricots and orange blossom honey it’s a 10.7% dream for strong ale and meade lovers. Strong fruit and honey through out and a nice full body. Nice mouth feel. Great carbonation.

Taster at the brewery. Apricots aroma, some spicy yeasts. Taste is thick oily apricots, sweet, oily mouthfeel. Quite boozy. A little bit too strong for my taste.

"This version coming in at a whopping 12.4% and done well! Is it beer? Is it mead? Not too sweet, but the fruit and honey are front and center for sure. Smooth, tasty, and unique."

A malty aroma dominates. The flavor is strange, sweet malt to start with a syrupy apricot sweetness to follow. The finish is sweet and sticky. Lots of alcohol on the throat.

On tap at Blind Pig. Pours golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is of apricots, hops, and malt. Taste is huge on the apricots, with a lot of hops. Has a nice malt backbone. The alcohol is definitely present, and gives it a nice kick. Lingering boozy apricot taste. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is sticky. This drinks very easy. I like this one a lot.
