Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow, bit of white head. Very interesting aroma with some hops, a hint of tea, caramel. Spice finish. Quite interesting.

Bomber. Molasses aroma with notes of wheat and honey. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head and some lacing. Wheat and molasses flavors contribute to the sticky mouthfeel to start. Finishes smooth with the strong flavor of honey that lingers on the palate. Good, refreshing summery brew.

Nikiel (873) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle from Superior Liquor. Pours a lightly hazy light orange/gold. Smells subtle of honey, honeybush, orange and sweetbread. Decent mouthfeel. Tastes mildly of alcohol with a lot of honey/sweetbread sweetness and ends surprisingly bitter.

Cloudy yellow with a pillowy white head. Bubblegum, banana, wheat, clove, and an odd metallic note.

Very alcoholic. Light, and not totally overpowering, but just generally a tinge too alcoholic. Otherwise tasty and relatively interesting. Great experiment and a pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Out of bottle, pours hazy golden. Sweet aroma, malty honey beer. Excellent beer, another solid showing from Grimm.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow with a nose of piss and malt. Flavor is malted lemon urine. Watery mouthfeel. Embarrassing.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bomber. Poured cloudy medium golden with a white head on top. The aroma picked up an odd, sour, metallic/herbal hit over warm honey and mulling spices.. intriguing, but it didn’t seem quite right. The flavor opened with tangy wheat and metallic notes, followed by honeycomb and molasses.. syrupy core.. aforementioned sour stuff plus warm banana on the finish. Medium-bodied, dry, sour, and a little spicy on the palate.. didn’t flow that well.. weird stuff.

Light brown body, lacey. Aggressive carbonation. Honey and mollasses. Not great, thanks Jason B.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Clear honey-golden with a thin head that was something between bubbly and foamy. Nose was fruity, like light honey with some generic apple, maybe some slightly boozy chewy pale cereal malt tones toward the back. Flavor was a bit confusing. Started honey sweet, but got a little stronger with fruity yeasty esters, slight citrus, ending with a boozy warm yeasty finish. Citrus gets more pronounced when it warms a bit. There’s some molasses in there but I’m not sure how to describe it--not that simple. Definitely spicy sweet heavy like molasses. But also kina like apple. Confusing.

Thanks to adnielsen for this one in trade. Cheers, Aaron! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that recedes. Nose is bread/ grains, honey, sugar, brown sugar, and a hint of yeast. Flavor is similar with immediate banana, honey, and sugar burst that recedes into a slightly citrusy sweet mid, then leaves with a somewhat dry yeasty in the finish. Interesting beer.
