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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Poured on tap into a tulip glass. Pours a nice clear copper color with a whited head that doesn’t last too long. Aroma is floral, honey, malt, and maybe ginger. Taste is crisp, light malt. The honey does not seem to come through, but it does have a smooth finish. It hides the alcohol really well. Body is light with medium carbonation. Overall a decent beer.

pottygok (486) - Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Aroma: Faint honey aroma with heavy malt and yeast aromas. Appearance: Clear amber with thick head. Taste: Medium sweetness with slightly sour finish. Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, long finish Overall: Very sweet and uncomplex beer. Reminds me of mead, almost. No depth or dimension.

Bomber to tulip. Looks solid; a semi-transparent burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes solid too; much like the name suggests. Average on the palate. Good.

Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Light spice and a bit of alcohol. Touch of ginger. Nose muted. Very dry. A bit boozy. Pepper as it warms.

I can smell the honey, but the taste is too subtle for me to pick up either that or the ginger. Very light flavor in general.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 18, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body. The nice aroma was candy and malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of crystal malt Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Lubiere (10451) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet honey malt with dark fruits and candy floss. In mouth, a sweet honey malt with grassy hops and light coriander, alcohol. Bottle at Mondial 2012, June 9 2012.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel Malts, Belgium yeasts, and bread. Medium amber hue with a small head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitterness. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Overall a good tripel.

jcnielsen (2256) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Honey, malty, bready, Strong honey flavor with some malty, floral, alcohol also. Normally, I probably wouldn’t go for a tripel with a big honey component. But this is a good tripel in its own right, and the honey complements it nicely.

Not bad at all it has a sweet start then hits you with that tripel yeast... All and all I’m happy would tell friends to buy it at $7.50 a bottle...
