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.

joergen (24032) - 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 (14519) - 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.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2004
Draught at Nørrebro Bryghus. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Hazy orange. Small, lasting head with good lacing. The aroma is dominated by delicious and very natural honey notes, and delicate, flowery hoppiness. The taste is pleasantly sweet, dominated by honey and balanced by nice hoppiness. The mouthfeel is soft and slightly prickly on the tongue. Surprisingly dry finish. An interesting, complex beer.

Sigmund (5836) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2004
(33 cl bottle). Orange colour, slightly hazy, moderate head. Moderate aroma of malts, nuts, honey and flowery hops. Honey is surprisingly subdued in aroma and flavour - this is definitely a beer, not a mead. However, honey adds a moderate sweetness to the flavour of a beer otherwise dominated by plentiful hops. Lagerish mouthfeel, a bit too carbonated for my taste. Bitter-sweet finish, bitter aftertaste. Not 100% well balanced in my book, but still a decent beer.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Dark golden with small head. Low carbonation. Honey and flowers in the nose. Flavor of honey, malt and earthy hop-bitterness. Full bodied.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
Orange colour with small white head. Aroma is sweet with some spices. Flavor is sweet with just fine hints of the honey. Hoppy and bitter finish.

Hansen (7809) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Golden colour, medium head, unclear. Aroma and flavor of honey, not much beer in this beer.

jonas (6201) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 0.33cl BottleHoneyish, flowery and grassy aroma. Hazy orange amber, lowish carbonation and head. Belgian golden ale roots are evident in the flavor, fruity (apples,kiwis), spicy and a little bit belgian yeast funk (miniscule bandaid), honeyish notes detectable in the background. Exits nicely on grass and pine needles. Complex brew. Unexpectedly full body. Soft mouthfeel. I was sceptical when I saw the price (3.7 euros for 33cl), but all in all it was well worth it.
