2.93/5  rDev -21.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half white head, rapidly receding retention, possibly attributed to the high ABV. Semi-cloudy straw color. No tremendously appealing.

S- Honey, chamomile, and strong herbs. Not sure what to think of it. Herbal and some malts in the background, but very weak.

T- Sweet and herbal. Alcohol is hidden well. Bland.

M- Thick and wet.

O- Not impressed. Too bad, I had heard a lot about this beer.

3.68/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 06/29/12.

A: Pours a clear light golden amber with a 1 finger white head. Not too much visible carbonation. Head dissipates in a few minutes and doesnt leave much lacing.

S: Its almost like a tea aroma with its herbal essence. Malt comes to mind as well. Pretty faint but certainly not offensive.

T: Real smooth taste due to the honey. Can get the saffron from it in a nice spiciness. A grapey booze to it.

M: Fairly light for 9%. Low carbonation. Is certainly not watery. Honey always helps a lot on the tongue.

Overall quite the interesting brew. The honey makes the beer and the saffron keeps it unique.
