3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light orange with a modest white head; yeast-driven aroma of honey on fresh-cut green apples. The flavor is somewhat sweet, again that honey, apricots underneath, very fruity with a delicious smoothness that goes down easy even on a thirsty palate. Some nice modest spicyness, floral hops on the late end rounding it out with the right element of dryness to balance te whole thing nice.
I really quite like this beer and will certain add it to the Belgian-beer rotation in my fridge.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Fresh, sweet honey and grassy hop aroma has a touch of light fruity esters. Body starts with a mild caramel and honey sweetness along with some earthy grassy spice and a crisp, but thinner, bittersweet finish. Really true to style and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottiglia da 33cl in un bar a Castellina Marittima (PI); colore ramato con schiuma scarsa e poco consistente, aroma fruttato e mieloso, sapore speziato (grazie all’aggiunta di miele e coriandolo, evidenti). A me č parsa davvero ottima.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught. Hazy light brown colour which is not appealing. Light malty aromas, strong alcohol presence and a cloying sweetness, feels as though you are drinking a candy. very dissapointing.

Blond in its profile and then added amounts of honey. Not that bad!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was very sweet with lots of honey and a hint of orange. The flavor was sweet, spicy honey with a spritzy orange undertone. Very interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I personally love mead but this honey beer falls a few yards short of a first down even though the sweet honey element predominates, its backed up by a yeasty watery flavor which seems to muddle it a bit and make it less complex. Easy to drink though with well hidden alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a godd sized white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing. Aroma of honey, citrus, and coriander. Taste is the same as aroma but has a bit of carbonic bite. Medium full mouthfeel that finishes somewhat dry. Good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Definite orange and coriander on the nose. Wheat and a hint of pine and honey sweetness. Pours rich gold with a small creamy white head. Spicy carbonation gives way to a pleasant orange and honey sweetness. Hides the 8% well. Lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry.
