Associated Supermarket, Bushwick 750ml ($8): Pours hazy yellow orange color with a loose white head. Aroma is honey and yeast. Taste is slightly sweet. Tastes like a low alcohol Belgian ale, but it really isn’t. Body is really light. Honey taste throughout. Not very complex.

Bottle. Yellow with a slight cloudiness. Medium head and a sweetness that hits you as you open the bottle. After opening a gentle bitterness appears.Pleasant but probably an acquired taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: An uber-sweeet blond kind-of-beer
How: Bottle 750ml, shared at post Tap-NY 2012 hotel tasting
The look: Cloudy yellow blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is sweet with fruity esters. Taste very very sweet, sugary banana cake, honey, perfumy notes bordering shampoo sensation, bubblegum. Well carbonated. Ratebeer style says it is a mead but to me it tasted like an overly sweet Tripel with no hops. I didn’t like it. The last beer I rated during this Tap-NY after-party, then I stumbled to my hotel room and my wife told me I could not possibly be a more pathetic low-life drunk. I’m taking this as a challenge. Game on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange body, white head. Aroma has citrus fruits all over it. Some sweet maltiness and a werid spiciness. There is alcohol present in flavour, but somehow this feel a bit thin in mouth. How is it even possible?

Bottle. Golden yellow color. Sweet honey smell and taste. A little too sweet for me, but maybe cause meads are not my thing. Overall its still smooth and nice to drink
