COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottles - part of the Connoisseur’s Choice range. Previously 9.0%.
Brewed with 5 varieties of hops, barley, and wheat malts, honey from our local bees and a blend of six spices. Honey spice triple is conditioned for six months in the cellars of the brewery and for at least 3 more in the bottle. The result is a wonderfully full yet balanced beer with a complex aroma of honey, ginger and juicy grpaefruit. Perfect for pairing with cold meats and fresh crispy salads.

330ml bottle form the brewery online shop. Not normally a fan of honey beers, so quite glad it was almost undetectable in this one. Does not drink 10% either, more like 6%. Clear orange-gold, no head. Light Belgian yeastiness, light honey and coriander. Dry finish. Good.

Quack-Duck (8159) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy golden colour, mid-szed white head. Malty base, but rather thin and light. Shy hoppy touch and hints of honesy. Expected much more....

zenkis (598) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours velvety yellow with huge top diminishing super fast, no lasing. On nose it comes dominant yeasty-fruity plus malt sweet, sugary a bit, touch of honey, warm alcohol aroma but not alcoholic if I can say so. Flavor is light astringent, sweet, a bit caramely with dry, min bitter from yeast. Honey like sweetness. As a strong ale it is deep fermented, dry, plus sweetened with some kind of sugar - but enough to be good implemented in flavor. Medium plus body, slick texture, soft carbonated. I liked this, but maybe someone could say it is too strong or yeasty or there is too much sugar adjuncts.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Was expecting a lot for this beer based on the feedback from EBBC reviews. It poured and an amber gold and had a sparsely bubbled thin head, The aroma was very much banana and clove. To taste it then became full of apples and pears and some sticking plaster. It was quite thin bodied and dry which did make it easy to drink. The beer was nice, but not one id revisit.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle at the Half Moon, Windlesham - 10/08/12. Pours a clear golden blonde with a thin wihite head soon clearing to the edges. Nose of Belgian yeasts, hop, spices. Tastes of hops, sweet, a little caramel and honey, Belgian yeast strain. Medium to fullish body with a dryish finish. Not going to match the Belgians but a decent enough beer for £4 in the pub!

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2011
Cask at the White Horse. It pours deep golden yellow, with a thin bubbly, white head. The nose is honey, sulphur, spice and lemon. The taste is honey, caramel, spice, ginger, hay, straw, soap and wood. It is initially sweet, but finishes up with lots of spice and some bitterness. Light to medium body (thinner than expected) and soft carbonation. Interesting stuff.
