3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, light beige, rapidly collapsing to nothing beige head, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is heavy honey, light raisin, medium spice...taste is heavy with floral honey, lighter hop bitterness, hints of allspice, light cereal, mildly sweet throughout, with slight hints of Balsamic....mouth feel light of medium, slightly sticky, minimally astringent, carbonation low adding a minimal tingle. This is honey dominated in both aroma and flavor making it Mead like in its character. It is an interesting experiment which seems to work. I would not enjoy it every day, but it most surely is better than a Pale Lager. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

28th February 2013
Thanks Jack for this much wanted beer, these archeological brews do fascinate me! Clear and bright amber beer, good off white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Dry! Light tangy citrus, dried fruits and sugared crystallised fruits. Thin creamy malt. Very floral this beer and a pinch of herb. Semi dry finish. Nice juxtaposition of flavours.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is reminiscent of a belgium triple. Spicy and sweet. Yummy, good stuff. Lot of flavor and tasty. Flavors go well together, lot going on but blends nicely. Not the beer I would be drinking many of but a unique, original beer that is a lot of fun.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jack. It pours clear amber with a thick white head. The nose is earth, spice, cake, salt, metallic and honey. The taste is earth, nut, honey sweetness, dark fruit, berry, spice, Irn Bru, bubblegum, green banana, peach and apricot with a sweet finish. Medium body and moderate-high carbonation. An interesting brew and a bit more drinkable that many of their other crazy concoctions.

Beer in the glass looks a lot like apple cider with a great head. Aroma is very reminiscent of white wine with a little spice. Flavor is spice forward and citrus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reminds me of a Belgian strong. Pours a golden amber with a white head. Fruity aroma with a lot of Belgian qualities. The flavor has the fruit and a bit of pepper. The pomegranates come through as well. Sweet and tasty.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Chandler, AZ. Has a sweet Belgian like aroma with some pomegranate. Taste is some clove and you get some wheat with a nice smooth honey sweetness.

Bottle split at Bruce’s. From Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s deep copper amber with a small head. The nose is rich roasted chestnut, some birch, root beer soda. Flat cocoa cola, some prunes and dates. Slightly herbal grassy accents. Interesting aromas. The taste is more tree bark, birch. Rich mineral. Sweet berries and caramel. Maple bar. More root beer and deep sweet prune. Honeyed brown bread. The beer’s smooth, the carbonation’s fine and subdued. Overall, a really interesting beer. It’s certainly unique, and I enjoyed that it challenged my modest descriptive vocabulary quite a bit.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a extremely small sized head of no head bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a uncarbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a oily lacing. The mild aroma was sweet and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of toffee honey and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
