Description from BSF progamme at GBBF 2006:

Head brewer Sergio Ormea uses local craft honey to flavour this exciting golden strong honey ale. Very good with calf, chicken, rabbit, and turkey, but absolutely perfect with cakes.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2012
75cl bottle from Beer City, lot# 28032012/1, BB 10/20/2013. Orangée léger col beige épais. Arôme est bien mielleux avec ce léger bouquet noisette. Le tout garde ce profile agréable de miel et organique sur un côté fleuri et houblonné léger. Palais épais et mielleux presque huileux du miel en bouche, malt léger sur une pointe de pétillant et léger caramel. Le tout reste doux avec un côté fruité rappelant l’abricot, se termine en laissant un léger filament collant/sucré aux lèvres. Bonne bière qui ne mérite pas les scores imputés mais aussi bière qui à pu évoluer en recette avec le temps.

Bottle in Rome. Clear amber beer, no real head. Dry crispy palate. Sweet malt with a mild toffee streak. Really not getting much in the way of hops. Some caramel in the finish. An okay sweet malty beer.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2011
Blond body, white creamy head. Aroma of caramel, hops, raspberries, wine and ... urine (but fortunately diminishing). Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour which is quite nice contrary to the aroma. Still not great, somewhat out of balance.

Koelschtrinker (17721) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Etwas säuerlicher, ziemlich hefiger Antrunk mit hellen Kräuternoten, stimmig und erfrischend, die 8,8% sind nicht erkennbar. Auf Dauer langweilig, da sehr monoton. Zum Ende disharmonisch. /7/8/8/9/8

Bottle from GBBF, day 5 on 5 August 2006 (noted at 6.8%). Hazy orange colour. Light honey aroma. Smooth, sweetish but with some sour notes (slight infection?). Quite interesting.

Hazy dark yellow with a good off white head. Cakey malt and some tangerine hops. Sweet and yeasty finish. Slight infection but it’s tolerable.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle at LCRBM5. Funky farmyard, Infected I thought. Flavour of a pale ale. Perhaps I was hard on it, but I thought that this was pretty poor
