4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark golden and very hazy. Good white head lasted fairly well. I think the unusual aroma is reminiscent of the musty scent you get when a beekeeper is spinning the comb to extract the honey. I was expecting sweetness in the taste, but itís much subtler than that. Sourness and bitterness are more predominant than the honey. Reminds me of the old-fashioned sweet we used to call cough candy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 25cl. Hazy golden colour, almost orange. Small and disappointingly brief head. Aroma is moderately malty but couldnít quite found the honey. Flavour is yeasty and spicy. Without being overwelming sweet, you can easily sense the honey. The end is bitter and a little dry. To me, itís a very good option because i didnít quite enjoy saison dupont ...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on 25cl bottle)A very odd aroma of smoke and raw meat! No head and a flat, dark yellow colour. very powerfull honey tase; sweet and fat, with some vax too. Semidry finish, not a long finish. The 8% cannot be felt or detected. Should be served cool.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Funky farmhouse aroma with notes of honey. Flavour has some honey (not much), but is surprisingly dry. A bit watery and bland though.

Bottle at Den Tatorverede Enke during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Cloudy yellow, with a nice aroma of flowers and lemsip. Very smooth, with some medicine and a lemon sharpness around the finish. Full in the mouth - good length. Some pleasant honey flavour.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazed yellow with a white bubbled pocked head. pepto bismol thier aroma back. chalky mouthfeel, woody pepto flavor, some would call it mint, they would be wrong. the only thing that lets me know honey was used in this is the thin body. a bit of a pepper taste lingers after the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big aroma of chewing gum, sending me to my childhood with memories of Star Wars trading cards. Aroma also strikes me of corn, like corn tortillas, like tamales. Lots of flavours reveals themselves as it warms, some pepper for example.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose-man, Kevin nailed it: this smells EXACTLY like pepto-bismal-fruity and chalky. Taste is fruity and estery and bitter on the back end. Notes of bread and fig comer through. Every flavor in here is pleasant with the exception of the pepto taste.
