And finally, after so many talks about this, here it comes...
Bottle from Imkerei Lauble in Lauterbach (http://www.fohrenbuehler-bienenhonig.de)
It pours a vivid honey color. The aroma is strong: honey, and soap, wax, pine needles; pungent. The mothfeel is thick enough; it’s very sweet; it has a good honey flavor with a very good citrusy counterbalance, both for flavor and acidity; quite fruity indeed.
