White grape and saffron in the aroma and finish. Heavy mead flavor alongside a Chardonnay-like crispness. Great carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden clear.interesting nose. Spicy, herby, gardeny golden honey gruity. Sort of semi sweet peachy, bit dried stonefruity fruityness. Med bodied, smooth soft, pretty easy (at least at the moment) drunk. Strange beer. Wouldnt mind having it agsin, as a sipper.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Beersiveknown (4854) - 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

daje (3349) - 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,
