Golden with an orange tinge, honey colour. Little thin film of a head dissipates fast. Filtered, some carbonation present.

Smells of honey, candy, floral, malt, orange, orange candy, spices like cinnamon and pepper, very fresh and fragrant. Makes me think of standing by the ocean and breathing in the sea air.

I taste the orange and spice, the freshness. It all passes over the tongue quickly then fades, leaving a bare aftertaste of sour and slight orange bitter note that coat the tongue not as a pleasant memory but rather leaving a hope that the next sip will prove this one better than the last. I don’t really get the honey, though if I search for it at times I get something that resembles honey. I’ve never had mead so I don’t know how to compare this with mead. Some sweetness, some bitterness.


Medium body, high carbonation. Somewhat syrupy, coats the tongue slightly.


Not really doing it for me or drawing me back to it. I had this since first writing this review though, and think really a worth while beer to try. Would be good as an appertif, by itself, or with tomato based pastas. Cool labeling with a long haired warrior.
