2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Burnt amber, moderate copper tones with lots of upward racing bubbles; thin, off-white had with decent retention but nothing in the middle. Aroma is characteristically tripel, though with more sweetness in the form of clover honey & Candi sugar, giving off that rich, deep, almost plum-like sweetness. Spices, fruity esters, earth, & a phenolic sting. Lots of white peppery & yeast laden spice on the palate. Touch of apple skin tartness & sweetness, also some white grape. Lots of bread, spicy yeast, biscuits, & a big finishing sweetness of honey, clove, & Candi sugar. Ginger. Wow, lots of ginger comes out with warmth. Big-time ginger root finish by the end of my glass. Some phenolic alcohol & slight medicinal tones clash with the awkward sweetness. A sipping beer, for sure. It’s okay, but not great.

Deep gold. The aroma of ginger is prominent. Taste - as expected, honey and ginger. Thick, oily texture. Malty. Low hops. This is pretty good but the ginger just overpowers.

650 ml. Lightly hazy amber with a lasting ring of bubbles. Nose is earthy honey, bubblegum, toast, light citrus and resin. Taste is honey, orange toffee, wheat, earthy tea leaf and a touch of resin. Thankfully the ginger is subdued and only shows a bit in the long finish. Medium body is smooth with low carbonation and to the sweet side.

Bottle. Deep amber. Nice full mouthfeel. Nose and taste are strongly of honey with a very mild ginger finish. Sweet without being cloying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very strong aroma of honey with touches of bubblegum and followed by some warm ginger. Appears clear copper with a few streams of rising carbonation, swirls of off white foam play on the surface and touces of lace grace the glass. Taste is very honey, sweet, but balanced with acidic and bitter ginger with some gentle bready malt on the end.palate is light and fizzy, nice. Overall, this is a great beer, I plan to buy more, if I can find it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Clear golden pour with a slight red hue and a slick of off-white foam. Sweet honey with ginger over clove and heavier malt in the aroma. Taste is honey up front with ginger quickly giving way to a denser malt flavor with some candied sugar and clove. Lightly coating mouthfeel. The honey and ginger nicely compliment the beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Chipotle Festival. Dark amber with an average sized white head. Aroma is mellow with notes of yeast, pale malts, pepper, and honey. Flavor is a bit sweeter with added lemon zest, ginger, and caramel. Finish is full of spice and a bit of booze.
