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.

Petkus331 (157) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2014
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!

peteinSD (1280) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
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.

Dfonorow (1203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
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.

LearninBeer (333) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
The aroma is some Belgium yeast, earthy, leaves. Pours a clear copper/orange brown, off white frothy head, mostly diminishing. The taste is bitter/sweet then a little sour. The body is medium, the texture creamy a little slick, the carbonation fizzy and the finish bitter. Not bad, think I was looking for more of a honey taste/aroma.

chucklemation (316) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Copper color with a small white foam head. Smells like sweet honey and tastes like nectar, with some yeasty sweetness as well. Very tasty.

Trev (1837) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Dark gold pour, quick white head. Strong florall and honey aroma. Flavour carries over with honey and light gingery spice and light biscuity malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gschrade (460) - Collinsville, USA - NOV 15, 2013
I had this at Global Brew. Pours a orangish color with a slight off white head. Taste sweet, honey, ginger. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Tangerine and honey with a mild hop finish. Palate is fairly light, but is quite flavorful.

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours a clear brownish amber bordering on chestnut with a thick and mostly fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma has a malty base and strong coriander and honey overtones, plus a nice ginger note. Flavor floods the palate with malt, honey, ginger, coriander (or something like it) and earthy tones. Satisfying and lip-smacking! Texture is firm and smooth, and though not fizzy it leaves a flavorful finish with malty, honey and ginger notes that remain long after the beer has gone downstairs.
