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.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Rated on 7-30-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small semi-fizzy ivory head with a short retention, transparent amber body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is honey, ginger, spice, fruity, floral, and earthy. The flavor is sweet, malt, earthy, fruity, and honey. This beer has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is medium bodied. This beer is easy to drink given the ABV which is hidden. It is very light bodied for the style along with a very dry finish. This beer is worth trying.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2014
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.

vikingguy (816) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (3781) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2014
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.

pours a nice amber color with white head, aroma has some citrus notes to it but you can really smell the booze, flavor is very sweet with a decent alcohol finish

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

Petkus331 (269) - 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!

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.
