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.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2005
Light hazy warm orange color with golden glow and fine light yellow-beige head. Nice sweet aroma’s 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.

Bottle, at home. Light amber with small white head, quickly gone. Aroma of honey and light of hops (flowery). Flavor sweet and bitter with an average finish, not fully balanced. Medium to full body, oily and soft carbonation. Unfiltered.

Hazy orange colour. Fast disappearing white head leaving a lace on the rim. Aroma is a bit sweet and malty, some hints of honey and alcohol too. Sweet taste with hints of honey and hops. Leaving it with a nice sweet warming aftertaste. This is a nice beer.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2005
33 cl bottle; Hazy, Amber color with small head that collapses quickly. Nose is bready, sweet and malty with some yeast. Taste is sweet with hints of vegetable. Big mouthfeel with low carbonation. No bitterness in the aftertaste. A nice beer which is not your typical blonde ale.

JorisPPattyn (7888) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2004
Orange-gold beer, with greenish shine, diluted honey colour; head reduced to coloured rim. Very flowery, blossomy nose, with cocos. Nose of "honey pops" or suchlike cereals, or honey covered old-fashioned cookies. Remarkable - perfect balance between bitterish hops and flowery honey. Unfortunately, the combination make the hops seem aged, cheesy, oxydized, too. But quite remarkable taste all the same. Cookie malt. Good balance, but a bit empty MF, as is often the case with honey beers. Seriously good try. Unfortunately prematurely aged.

joergen (20664) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2004
Amber colour with a small off-white head. Sweet metallic aroma with notes of honey and hops. Malty flavour with notes of peaches and a bit alcohol, well balanced bitterness. Unfortunately it’s quite expensive.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2004
Pretty and hazy golden colour, unimpressive head. Subtle honey aroma with a nice fresh touch of Cascade. Soft, almost oily mouthfeel and the sweetness is well balanced by the nice bitter finish.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2004
Dark golden, white lasting head. Malty aroma (honey). More malts and honey ind the flavour well balanced by a floral hoppyness. Nice, but nothing special.

MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2004
Bottle. Golden colour, no head. Looks quite boring and flat. Full, peppery, caramelly flavour. Sort of like a nice bock, but not good enough at that price.
