COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little John’s local bees create a spring wildflower-honey that lends a sweet, earthy complexity to a traditional style of beer (triple) with a balancing snap of ginger in the finish.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2011
On tap at Kraftwerk. Pours a deep golden amber color with burnt orange hues when held to a light source and a one finger off-white head that has decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Slightly earthy, spicy aroma with hints of estery fruit and bubblegum. Floral and perfume like with hints of pepper, coriander, light berries and cherry. Medium bodied with a good balance of earthy tartness, zesty spice, bready yeast and crisp light fruit. Slight creaminess adds to the mouthfeel and complexity. Hints of coriander, ginger, pepper, apple, strawberry and cherry. Well balanced and pretty quaffable with a slightly dry finish.

Pailhead (4417) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle: The aroma is light-moderately sweet with notes of candi sugar, honey, banana, floral notes, orange peel, and ginger. At times there are some faint metallic notes in the aroma that are a bit off putting. It pours a transparent copper with a two-finger off-white head that settles into a thick film. The flavor starts light-moderately sweet with honey and candi sugar. There’s a touch of banana and citrus in the background. The finish has moderate spiciness with ginger and pepper mixing with apple, light orange peel, floral notes, and a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

750ml bottle. Light brown color with a thin bubbly head. Slight spotty lacing. Aroma has a good amount of honey, ginger, lemon and malt mixed together. Flavor is a little sweet but has a good amount of honey and lemon in there. Malt is present on the back end, makes for a good backing.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Deep translucent orange-red body, thin to medium buff head. Sweet nose with yeast, honey, and brown sugar, lacking fruity esters. The body is tart and very sweet, dominated by honey and ginger. Soapy palate. If this beer ever did resemble a tripel, the honey and ginger have masked it well.

Suttree (4906) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Faint aroma, some white wine, some floral notes. Flavor is, y’know, there. Some traditional tripel flavors, but all in all rather underwhelming.

Sample from 22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small white head that disappears. The aroma was of honey, raisins, ginger, light florals, and sweet candi sugar. The flavor was sweet honey, sweet candi sugar, ginger and raisins. Did I mention this was sweet? I don’t mind sweet, but this was too much. Medium bodied. I am seeing more misses than hits with the recent New Holland beers.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
A tripel? More like a single and a two base error. Clear reddish orange with a large taupe sudsy topper. Aroma of grains, honey, ginger, malt and light yeast. Taste of heavy ginger and honey, alcohol, sulfur and malt and a bit of pepper on the finish. Creamy mouth feel and okay for a honey ginger beer, but not a tripel.
