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.

Cloudish orangish reddish brownish. Even has a yellow hue around the edges.Thin to no head with bits of foamy spit.Some light lacing.Mild carbonation. Aroma is nice with floral,orange,spice and a bigger sweet honey aroma. Taste is very nice with a good honey taste floral orange some spice blend with a honey sweet nectar the ginger is hard to detect but gives a general spice which lasts long through some of the bittering or finish. There is a nice tang with this on the sides of the cheeks keeping the sublte but noticable sweetness balanced with the spice. There is a good carmel note with the sweetness as well. This is suprisingly very complex and good. For a good honey quality in a beer this is up there.

22 oz. bottle, Vintage 2011, served in tumbler- poured a transparent brownish amber color, lively medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of honey, late summer fruit, and note of dirt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is weakened but itís made up for it by a ginger/coriander tone, middle has darkened fruit, finish is made of more of the same with some small hints of pepper. Very nicely done- makes for a good companion while I enter in ratings and corrections.

22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. 2011 Vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is mostly honey with a slight nose of sour green apple. Taste is light sweet. Alcohol, honey and some mixed berries. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, I like this beer. Nothing I would seek out but Iím glad Iím drinking this one.

Pours a reddish amber with tons of carbonation. Smells of copper. Taste is very sweet with some cherries and honey and coconut. Minimal bitterness. Nice brew but doesnít taste like a triple.

Meh...nice concept but not a great beer. Aroma was decent. Sweet honey and light malt with hints of mud. Pour was disappointingly dark for a tripel. LIght murky brown with a two finger of white head. Taste was average. A tad on the sweet side with honey and caramel providing the main flavors. There is a weird earthiness to this beer that doesnít belong in a tripel. Very strong and biting carbonation make the beer very refreshing if not very one dimensional. FInish was very weak and didnít linger.

Damico (2473) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours copper amber with a small white head. The aroma is delicious, fresh honey straight off the comb. Body is lighter, tastes like a mead, almost wine flavors as well. Not very carbonated, sweet and smooth but no spiciness of a normal tripel.

wmubronco1992 (603) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber. Small off white head. Aroma of fuit and spice. Flavor of honey and sweet fruits. Palate is solid. Enjoyed this as a change of pace. It was a well done beer. Enjoyed the honey and appreciated the thickness, My issue would be that it isnít a great tripel. The sweet component overwhelms the spice. However I enjoyed it and would definitely drink it again.

Bomber. Pours a rich amber with slight reddish caramel hues. Aroma is ripe fruits/grapes, nice belgian yeasty scent. Taste is ripe fruit, as the beer warmed the honey became more apparent, perhaps some ginger in the aftertaste. Nice finish, alcohol slightly detectable. A very nice tripel.

Draft at Haze. Deep amber-brown, way darker than I wouldve expected for the style. Thin, steady oily head. Sweet and big, with some thick honey and ginger notes. Sort of like an imperial honey beer. Sweet, sugary, heavy. Might have benefited from more hops, which could create more depth. Some mellow malt tones. OK, but a little tame and boring too. Tripels are already too sweet most times, this just creates an overload.
