1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pretty screwed up. Definitley not as bad as the chocolate. Tastes like a soft drink, rather than anything beery or complex. Honeyed sweetness, and lightly sticky, interesting, though, even though it really did suck in the end. Main flavours were honey, coriander and some ginger. Thin palate.

Bottle. Aroma of soft honey and freshly laundered woolen socks. Nettles and rhubarb initially in flavour, then the warm honey comes through. This is a witbier in the gaardenbeer series, as such it's actually quite boring, lacking the sweet and sour rush of the others.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Honey and lemon aroma. Hazy, yellow, white head, few lace. Very sweet start, honey, thick but soon thinner and less sweet but still honey. Sparkling and honey finish. Long lasting with honey on your lips.

Strong honey aroma. Really sweet. The colour of honey disolved in hot water. As for flavour - far too sweet for me, too medicinal and sickly. Actually, its nasty.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Strong honeyaroma. Very, very sweet, honey and sugary, but I doubt if any bee has been used. Very artificial. Rather sharp in its sourness and nothing to compensate. Slightly nutty, like cheap Turkish baklava.

The reputation of Florisgaarden isn't very good, and i can understand why. This Honey version was a definite drain pour for me! Extremely honey flavor. Too much to cope. Ugh. Bitter finish.

Reeks strongly of honey and floral notes. Tastes the same as it smells. Truly a beer I could drink all night. Very sweet!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very strong nose that is super complex - smells of honey with spices, pine cones and sap. Very perfume-like. Reminds me of walking into a gift store that sells soaps and incense and the like. Light hazy green-yellow color and no head. Taste is also honey, spicy and maple syrup-like. Thin body but a varied profile. Gets points for originality. One of the most unusual beers Iíve had - its an acquired taste...

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Complex aroma - honey, sweet, flowers, sap, pine, inscence. Light green yellow color. Taste honey, soap and maple syrup. Syrupy and fizzy. Somehow artifical, but very interesting. It is too sweet for my taste.
