2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: $2.20 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours very pale yellow with only the hint of a head. Smells of skunk, grass, honey, and ginger. Taste of sweet honey, grasses, and burnt ginger... leaves an off aftertaste.
Tap at the brewery - hazy gold - decent Belgian ale, with moderately more bitterness than anticipated, and some overbearing phenols that fatigue the palate a bit - unnecessary spices add to this, ultimately creating a beer that’s just trying to do too much. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Malty and sweet with a good dose of sour fruit and Belgian yeast. A little bot of dough, banana, and citrus. dlovell2 (2137) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is bready malt with clove yeast. Flavor is bready malt with sweet honey and coriander. Peppery yeasty finish with great ginger. Bubbly mouthfeel. Really nice! JDBaker11058 (2206) - Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2016

Draught @ Albion. Clear pale yellow with small off-white foamy head, honey aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet taste with strong honey flavor, long honey sweet finish. This is almost like a mead.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a slight, white, head. My notes on this beer are sparse, but confirm that it was indeed spicy and inclined towards sweetness. Fine. climberbob (458) - Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle into tulip. Hazy golden w decent head on a hard pour that does not last. Floral pine honey aroma. Taste has some hints of honey and orange zest. Can't pick out the ginger. Disappointing low carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Decent beer.

Pours hazy yellow. Aroma honey, ginger, spice, fruit. Tastes like honey candy, but not overbearing. Just enough spice and hops to balance the honey, almost. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Hazy straw body with big head. Nose is honey certainly, spices, some ginger. Taste is floral, spices, fruits, ginger, bananas and lots of honey. Very smooth. Enjoyable. brownaler (663) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Piney aroma transitions to the body with bubbly body malt is balanced by Belgian yeast.
