4.15/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is gold with a frothy off-white head, creamy, solid lace.

Smell is intense, there's lots of sugars, earth, herbal, some coco (weird!), and herbal.

Taste is intense but notably smooth. 15.5% seems daunting! But the taste is not. Like the herbal notes, I assume the honey helps it ferment strong and smooth, more of a braggot I assume. Very well done.

Mouthfeel is slippery, eerily soft, light; Saharan dryness.

Drinkability is impressively strong. Honestly, the best, most drinkable of the strong beers I've had; by a wide margin; wine like.

Another thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Very small fizzy head, semi clear honey orange color.

Nose juniper, fruity orange peel and marmalade, sweet candy like, little piney

Taste sweet gale and juniper pine like, semi sweet candy and plenty of effervescent saison like notes, hint spices, floral, etc.

Mouth is med bod, booze is hidden well, nice carb.
