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.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack (definitely can’t drink all 6 in one sitting). Pours hazy orange, taste is faint apricot and booze, with a slick honey aftertaste which makes it go down dangerously smooth. If you are looking for a non-offensive high powered beer to get you ripped, this is it. Be careful with this one, it bites back.

So thick it’s like baby food. No smell. Looks like a beer. Yikes! Fruity alcohol. Not for me. Suppose a few will get you wasted.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Spirits LKWD. Poured a clear deep honey gold body with an average sized bright white foamy head. Aroma is sweet breads, dry fruits, alcohol, honey. Flavor is very similar but with a bit more grains upfront that faded to sweeter notes and finishes with alcohol. Syrupy full body with light carbonation and lingering heat on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has apricot, alcohol, caramel and sweetness. It has a medium body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes and quite heavy on the alcohol. Very hot. Not for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Smells like a bock, sweet and strong. Crystal clear Amber. Tastes like it smells, with far more honey evident than Apricot. Sweet and warming. Consumed just below room temp. Delicious.

Tap. I usually like stronger beers, but this one didn’t seem right to me. It tasted like a barleywine and the alcohol covered up most of the apricot flavors I was hoping for. It was there but my taste buds struggled to pick it up.
