Bottle. No head. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is notes of honey, alcohol, and sugar/caramel. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Medium body, syrupy texture, flat carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Very simple and very syrupy-sweet, but no off notes or genuinely unpleasant aspects. Average.

Miod rodem z Litwy. Pierwszy jaki kosztowalem z poza Polski. Ladna butelka kamionkowa z zamknieciem Swing top. ale ten wyglad jest zdecydowanie lepszy od wygladu samego miodu. Jasniutki niemal zlocisty. Delikatny aromat kwiatowy. W smaku takze miodowe akcenty, chmiel dodany do tego miodu jest niezauwazalny. Lekka slodkawosc ale koncowka nie zostawia niczego trwalszego w posmaku.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Clear gold, still. Simple honey comb and herb aroma, seems watery down or thin-smelling, quiet expression lacks oomph. Concrete / mineral smell somewhere in there. Simple, crisp and tart, very much like apple cider... very cider-like red apple and watermelon honey flavor too. No glaring flaws, and the flavorings don’t show very well. I wouldn’t guess juniper at all, and the hop and herb bitterness I maybe mistake for cider-like tartness.
