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.

OmegaX (1226) - Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle shared by Tampa RB group. Nose is full of sweet honey and some ginger. Yeasty and spicy. Taste follows with plenty of sweet and tasty honey and a lemony ginger follow-up. Good stuff and drinkable as hell.

Thanks to PaulUnwin for the share on this one. Pours a honey yellow color with a white head. Nose is honey, slight peppery yeast, and lots of sweet malt. Flavor is similar with lots of honey, sweet malt, and some peppery yeast. Medium in body and syrupy, yet sweet and nice.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
This great beer had and awesome cloudy orange hue to it. The scents were light for a tripel, but still quite mellow and spicy. Lots of clove and hops in this one, and the touch of ginger is very nice as well. Different, but great.

wlajwl (3762) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Grains, spice and a noticeable amount of honey in the aroma. The flavor is fruity/raspberry/cherry, with an underlying sweetness and spiciness. Although initially it tasted like there was a hint of vegetables, thankfully there wasn’t. This was interesting, it deviated considerably from a normal tripel to the point where the normal style characteristics were underlying in the flavor. Decent ale overall, interesting.

Bottle. Dark. Lear amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel and white pepper. Taste is more bitter than your average tripel. Tasty enough.

ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/29/11

Aroma: The nose fairly sweet, with some caramel malts, clove, ginger, and a hint of honey
Appearance: The pour is a hazy reddish-copper color with a small beige head and drops of lace
Flavor: This one has a fairly sweet flavor to it, made up of mostly caramel malts (with touches of honey), and that is balanced by the spice profile, it finishes with a bit of a ginger twang
Palate: The body is medium, it has a slight stickiness on the mouth, and a tingly, gingery finish
Overall Impression: This one was fairly interesting. While I could make out the Honey component, I found it to be fairly subtle, compared with the Ginger component that I found to be much more prevalent. There is also quite a complex mix of spices and other flavors that give this beer a nice depth. This one may have been a little on the sweet side for my tastes, but the complexity of flavors and how interesting this beer is caused me to give it a nice bump in the overall score.

Gription79 (2232) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 2, 2012
22 ounce bottle.
Aroma: earthy, slight honey, floral, perfume
Appearance: bright golden, thin head
Taste: honey, perfume, floral,grainy
Palate: sweet, thick, and a little syrupy
Overall: I had high hopes for this one, I love honey and ginger. This beer needs some work. It is to sweet for the style and that really detracts from the experience.

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2011
22 oz. bottle courtesy of mikem409. Pours a clear coppery red with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of honey, caramel, and fresh ginger. The honey and ginger I thought came together very nicely in the flavor with neither dominating the other and complimenting the caramel flavor of the beer. Medium bodied. There’s not much here that reminds me of a tripel, but then again, tripels are not my favorite style, so this is not an issue for me, but purists might be bothered by this.

Taster at Bavarian Lodge. Luscious, almost transparent brown, a thin foam topper. Sweet honey smell, but subdued. Taste is again a little thin, like a sparkling mead. Still, it’s a happy mouthful, with happy bubbles and happy malts… sorry, that’s the Dragon’s Milk I had before this talking. But I find it to be a fine, sweet abbey beer, with honey playing very prominently up front.
