3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
NorCal December ’07 - Not sure if this beer had some age on it or not, but what I got was a fairly straight forward, fruity, honeyish beer that was nice. Nose was honey, very floral almost perfumey with a touch of orange peel. Appearance was honey golden in color with solid head. Mouthfeel was soft, and velvety smooth. Flavor was a bit one dimensional for (which made me wonder how old the bottle was) because it was mostly honey like sweetness. Nice for a bottle, but I can’t see drinking many of these. You might wind up with a cavity due to the sweetness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz bottle purchased at Spirits RB. Golden body with tight bubbly carbonation and a huge dense creamy white head. Bready aroma with light citrus notes and honey. Medium bodied which would feel creamy but the carbonation is to strong so it comes across slightly harsh. Flavor is slightly sweet but notes of grain and malts are dominant. This beer didn’t really impress me but then again neither did the movie Superbad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out a very nice honey orange with a good sized fluffy white head which diminishes within a minute or so. Slight effervescence. Aroma is of coriander and orange with a near apricot touch. Very good mouth feel, good carbonation that almost makes this froth in your mouth. Taste is mostly the spices (coriander and orange peel) with some wheaty bread notes. Very little actual honey tasted..just an overall sweetness at the end. Good drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bready and spicy aroma of nutmeg, clove, and ginger within a lemon background. The nutmeg is very strong. Cloudy and dingy gold color, thin white head. Nutmeg and lemony vinous flavor. Cabbage finish. Distinctive and sure to appeal to a niche audience. I can’t say that I belong to that audience, but I like this beer well enough. A non-threatening belgian.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet citrus with maybe a touch of honey in the aroma, as well as the coriander spiciness. The color is just like honey in the glass, with a big foamy head. Very pretty. It is sweet, as the name implies, but the spice and some bitter accompany it all the way down. The flavor also has some banana/ester reminiscent of a tripel. Also, this beer reminds me a bit of Duvel. The sweetness does get somewhat overwhelming towards the bottom of the glass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A rich, thickish blonde that’s sweet all the way through. Lively MF. Some spicing. Orange-gold beer with lasting head. But I can’t hang with it for long... just cloying. I like the character that honey brings, but to keep this much of the sweetness, I think you need more depth and structure to hold it up. I don’t know, does that make sense? See Boskeun for reference.
