COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the royal wedding. A fusion beer based on Belgian golden ale and honey ale. First gold, saazer and cascade hops along with Leatherwood honey from Tasmania gives a strong but soft beer. The hops reminds you however, that you are actually drinking beer.

Bottled - trade with chris_o. A slightly hazy orange gold coloured beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and floral; at first a bit dull but the citricity develops steadily. The taste is quite heavy on the honey together with citric hops. A nice enough beer which carries off the honey without ever being cloying.

Golden with a good white head. Honey and malt aromas. The flavour is sweet with distinct hop notes, perhaps a bit nutty too.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Peculiar sweet, hoppy, perfumy aroma with some flowery notes - donít really know what to think of it. Flavour is sweet, perfumy and flowery as well. Feels weird. Guess itís because of the honey used, and it is kinda interesting, but it just doesnít do it for me. Alcohol is found too, but feels wellbalanced, which is nice. 10-10-05.

Hazy orange color with a half centimetre head. Not much honey in the aroma. Flavor is mostly like a lager. The honey isnít that distinct.

Bottle. Golden/orange color. White head. Perfumed and fruity smell. Sorry to say I didnít recognize the honey, but it was the last beer this evening, so I guess thatís why. Not much written down about the taste either, other than it was a nice, quite fruity beer with a balanced bitterness to the end. Guess I have to re-rate this one day. (050923)

Have a very special parfumed smell and taste almost like vingums. But very nice looking label. The honey from Tazmania is not well used.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2005
(On tap) Dark orangey golden with a light, creamy head. Slightly hazy. The Tasmanian honey do add some subtle flavours but not much sweetness. Incredibly balanced. Very nice brew. 110705

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottled. Malty and herbal aroma, quite hoppy. Light amber color, hazy, off-white head, very nice lace. Very malty, herbal, hoppy, bitter to rather bitter in the finish, very sweet and of course lots of honey (although it took me some time recognize it), very full. Thanks Dalle! re-rate: Had it again but same rating and nothing else to add.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2005
Slightly hazy light orange colour, small creamy white head. Smooth and well-balanced aroma of cookies, honey, nuts and wet grass. Soft fruity flavour of honey and peach. Wonderfull soft mouthfeel with a light oily touch. Fresh aftertaste of nectarines and honey.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2005
Light hazy warm orange color with golden glow and fine light yellow-beige head. Nice sweet aromaís of flowers, honey and a faint touch of bee-wax. Nose is sweet spicy and has also hints of bread-dough and seeds to feed a canarie bird with. The taste is round and has this strange sweet-dry caracter. It has touches of fresh cutted wood, is light honeyed has touches of flowers and butter-caramels, fresh mirabelles, and some herbal accents of nettles, violettes and some smooth hops. Afthertaste is mild and light bitter. Thanks Jeppe for this fine Danish beer.
