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.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Deep amber-golden pour. The nose is intensely honeyish and gingery. Lots of pepper and a really great honeyish cooling character. A bit of light wintergreen character. Fairly soft caramelly malt with a touch of light sweet fruitiness. Fresh and a little bit warming but it has lots of character. Gingery and spicy. It’s really tasty stuff.

jercraigs (7778) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
2011-04-17. Lightly hazy amber body with a nice creamy beige head. 3+ Mild ginger in the aroma, honey, yeast. Flavour is on the sweet side, honet, hints of ginger around the edges, light yeast character. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate. 3+ Fairly sweet overall, much more so than a traditional Belgian triple, and the alcohol is quite well hidden.

Higher alcohol beeverage, a tripel? Ginger in the aroma along with yeast, ginger is the dominant taste. Hops infused with honey. Ginger comes through in every sip, unusual, bit decent. Good head, cloudy body. Bold herbal tea.Above average mouthfeel.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
On tap at Bodega into a flute glass. The name of this beer is half right, tons of honey but not a tripel except for abv... Pours a really dark honey gold, darkest tripel I’ve ever seen... The taste and aroma are both way to sweet from start to finish. Totally dominated by sweet honey, way to sweet, this is very meade like or a pourly done honey beer. Not subtle or complex, nothing worth trying here.

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 (4742) - 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.
