Beersiveknown (4820) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle at home from House of the Trembling Madness, york
clear burnished gold-amber, barely any head. dusty honey and lockets throat sweets on nose, low carbonation, extremely sweet, a dusty peppery smattering at back of palate perhaps saffron, honey dominant and thus very mead like sweetness - alcohol warmth at back of palate - more for shots than a full glass but interesting to try

Amarela dourada e espuma cremosa persistente. Adocicado do mel e uvas evidente, sem ser enjoativo. Facil de beber (preferencialnente bem gelada)

daje (3163) - NORWAY - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle, New Years Eve 2014-2015. Unclear yellow body with white lacings. Sweet honey aroma with plums and grapes. Alcoholic taste, sweet meady, toffee, finishing with earthy hops and honey. A nice concept, though the brew on it’s falls a bit short.

Not bad. A little bit of a funky taste but kind of to be expected. Still pretty good.

Bright golden with a slight hazy and thin white head. Sweet aroma with a bit of funk. Flavors of grape, wild yeast, and honey. Nice,

ffbot (268) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 25, 2016
The taste to this is all a beer lover could dream of. The balance of bitter and sweet, with a funky side taste, is great. Earthy, grape peel, herbs, and different complex sweetness-es attack your taste buds.

sjdevel (12) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Nice clear golden color 1-2 finger head when pouring form a 12 oz. bottle. Great head retention - many bubbles streaming up from the bottom. Foam is thick as it sticks to the side when the glass is swirled. Smells of tart fruit (apple/cherry) and some caramel malts. Just a slight vinegar hint. Also a slight herbal and pepper undertones. At first there is only a slight bitterness experienced before the alcohol sets in. There is a slight medicinal flavor soon after. Mixed in are flavors of apples, peach, cherry, white grape. There is a decent amount of floral hop notes in the middle and towards the end. Quite a sweet finish. Light to medium mouthfeel. This beer remains foamy throughout and effervescent on the tongue. Very good and fruity. Some bitterness and tart fruit, but well balanced out with sweetness.

Sirmixsomewhat (173) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
The label tells you it includes honey, and the honey is what makes this so smooth. If it weren’t for all the other ingredients that remind you you’re drinking beer and NOT honey, you’d think you were guzzling from one of those plastic bears. The sweetness is kept in check by the saffron and other fun stuff included and I would drink this beer every day for a long time if I could.

jsporrer (418) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. Not much of an aroma but a hint of sweetness. Taste is semi-sweet with notes of honey and some grapes. Nice texture, very smooth and silky. Finishes with a nice warm feeling. Flavors are not very prominent but they are noticeable. Very enjoyable but just a tad too sweet for my liking.
