bottle. Golden with one finger head. Light fruity base with moderate booze and mild spicing. The right elements are here, but it’s just missing the balance and depth that you get from better examples of this style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap an attractive clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma is strongly fruity, apple and some banana with a hint of pear.flavor starts with a malty core and adds apple, banana, butterscotch, and yeasty notes plus a snip of pear and a whisper of caramel. Texture is about average in the fizz and viscosity departments. Go to the backwoods for one.

Peach, green peas, shitty hay nose. Clear amber, medium head. Peach flavor with less of a vegetal quality, but it’s still there. Very subtle babyfood banana, presence. Drinks a little warm, full body.

Honeysuckle Tea, eh? Would not have come up with that, though now that you say it, yeah, that tastes like honeysuckle tea in there. A little too oddly fruity for me, though it’s certainly not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours medium golden, slight thin white head very slight lacing. Aroma sweet malt, definitely get the tea, belgian yeast esters of bubblegum and clove, no hop or alcohol. Taste sweet, malty, big esters, clove and slight bubblegum, the slightest hint of alcohol, the honeysuckle tea definitely there, unfortunately. Mouthfeel fuller side of medium body, aproaching high carbonation, slight alcohol warming, in the sweeter side of balanced finish. Overall nice beer, the tea flavor can go, and could be attenuated a little more, also should have a little more alcohol presence for the style, better than most of the ratings suggest though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $3.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled on: 05/06/2014
Appearance: BB presents a golden pour, with an ever so slight haziness to it. Has not more than a very, very slim white head.
Smell: With a top note of honeysuckle, there are various tangy fruity esters swirled up with aromatic spice, bready malts, chewing gum, and a drip of alcohol.
Taste: Scantly bready pils malts drizzled with simple syrup ramp up to a range of fruity hints, tasting of orange rind, lemon, apple, and banana dosed with a shot of Prosecco. Cracked clove and a taste of bubblegum follow. On the back half, there’s a little honeysuckle, a little alcohol, a little acidity. Fastly drying approaching the lightly crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: A bot over medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Just a bit of stickiness to it.
Overall: Fairy decent. While not as seamless and graceful as others, it is a solid shot at a honeysuckle infused Belgian-style offering.
