MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle, 7.5%. Citric and vinous aroma, quite close to white wine. Hazy golden colour, small floating bits. Sparkling. Very small fizzy white head. The flavour has a faint note of vinousness, also like white wine. But sweeter, probably sweetness from the honey.

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2006
Honey blonde color, cloudy. Honey and lemon in the aroma. Citric flavor with coreander and traces of honey. Fairly dry, well attenuated. Prickly mouthfeel. Just a bit thin, but with a fruity aftertaste. Pleasant beer with enough bite.

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2006
Golden beer with slight orange shine; small whitish head. Flowers, honey, spices, rosewater, almonds. All very aromatic, but predicting a lot of sweetness. But in truth, the taste is much less sweet than expected. Apart from the rosewater flavour, the main sweetness is essentialy pale malts, maybe with some almondy hints. No trace of honey flavour, probably very well attenuated. At the (good) edge of cloying, could do with some beefing up in body. Good, sweet even when not at all honeyish. I like this.
