COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little Johnís 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.

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 (3167) - 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 (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Cloudy orange, thin white head. Faint aroma, some white wine, some floral notes. Flavor is, yíknow, 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 donít 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.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear red color with a large fizzy offwhite head. Fairly poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of ginger, caramel, honey, stone fruits, toasted malts and a bit of a metallic note. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, bread, honey, ginger, brown sugar. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer. My constant disappointment with New Holland hasnít been present the last few beers Iíve tried. Iím glad theyíre improving.

Bomber. Deep golden body with a tiny-bubbled, white head, mostly diminishing. The aroma is sweet with honey and spice, especially clove and ginger. It has notes of alochol, toasted grain and caramel. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Overly sweet for a tripel and the spices taste unnatural and forced. The aroma is better than the flavor. I liked it a little more after a few ounces than I did at first. But itís still a long way from being a good tripel.
