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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is of fruit, wood, honey, and hops. The flavor is light yet powerful, it contains notes of honey and wood and ends on a nice hoppy dryness. This is a very nice honey beer, since the sweetness of honey is not present at all - only the aromas and flavors.

Papsoe (25088) - 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

joergen (20662) - 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.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2006
Bottled. Honeyish golden colour, not much head. Honey, alcohol and hops in aroma. Sweetish metallic honey on flavour with hops kicking in and giving some balance to it. Aftertaste is very weird mix of bitterish hops and sweet honey. Alcohol fits in, but disturbs the whole.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2004
Sampled draught at Dansk Ølfestival.
Hazy, deep golden. Distinct honey aroma. Sweet, but not at all cloying. Soft and near full bodied with gentle mouthfeel. Notes of tobacco and pleasant late bitterness. Complex and well balanced.

anders37 (16584) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2005
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.

Copenhagen beer festival. Clear gold beer. Sweet and spicy. The sweetness is honeyish but this is more than offset by the dry spice (ie not in a good way).

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 Draught, 2004-05-17, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy golden color; creamy head. Nice honey aroma. Quite good malty ale, with a nice honey touch. Ends with a quite strong bitterness; herbs.

Draught, 2005-04-24, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Hazy amber color; huge head. Real honey aroma, strong and nice; flowery, mixed with a delicate hop. The sweetness is not too much, balanced, malty, with an interesting hoppiness, aromatic. Very well brewed!
