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.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2010
On tap at Bocktown. Very light malt aroma with some honey notes and a bit of spicy hops. Medium dark amber clear with thin head. Medium-heavy body with medium-high carbonation, light carbonic burn and some warming. Starts sweet and spicy with rye, honey, alcohol, and a bit of chocolate. Some caramel. Dry chalky bitter finish and lasting bitter after. Watery-hot thin finish and spicy after. Fruity.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Fireworks.
Aroma: A good bit of honey, fruit, yeast, and spiciness.
Appearance: It pours a deep gold color with a thin, white head. The head fades relatively quickly.
Taste: A mix of honey, alcohol, yeast, and light fruit notes. Somewhat simpler than what I had in mind.
Palate: Medium bodied with lower than average carbonation leading to a sweet finish. Itís a bit cloying and a little warm with alcohol.
Overall: Itís okay. Certainly not the best tripel Iíve had, but it was drinkable.

Golden amber pour with substantial head. This beer is a viscous beast of honey, ginger, spicy hops, and belgian yeast. Perhaps a touch cloying if warmed too much. Slightly over-carbonated and a tad harsh on the mouth.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2011 Had in a 4 oz sampler. Golden color. Lighter body. Couldnt really taste the honey- very subtle. There a beer from Belgium that is a honey abbey (Barbar) and it blew this away in my opinion. Drinkable. Rerate update 3/11: Big bottle, Poured a pretty amber honey color. Aroma was subtle with some sweet malt. Taste was medium sweet. Med body, slight fizziness in carbonation. Can still barely taste the honey. Alchohol is somewhat hidden. Yep, still not as good as the Barbar Belgium beer, but decent and worth trying.

patrick767 (3696) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2010
draft at Trion in New Haven, IN - Pours amber with a one finger off-white head. It smells of honey (duh) and spicy yeast. The flavor is sweet with dark honey featuring quite prominently along with some malts, yeast, and maybe a hint of fruitiness but itís not coming through as much as many brews in this style. Itís medium bodied, bubbly, and pretty unusual tasting for a tripel. While alright, to me itís not a high end brew worth the premium.

BVery (7386) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Tap. Clear copper/amber pour with a minimal white head - quickly dissipating. Faint honey and fruit on the nose. Sugar, honey, dark fruit on taste. Mouthfeel was a bit flat and light. Didnít love this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Sampled on draft at 3 Rivers 6 Pack this beer poured a dark caramel amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was faint sweet honey, light fruits and nut. The flavor was sweet and malty with a faint bitterness and a fairly intense honey and bananabread elementsa and a long bitter honey finish. Medium body. Nice.

Bottle in snifter. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark honey, yeast and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex brew.
