Was my favorite beer while visiting Poland. Can never find it in the states so was thrilled when Ciechan had a pop-up beer garden in the middle of Warsaw.

The beer was VERY sweet. Heavy, heavy honey. Highly refreshing considering it was 80-90 degrees during the visit.

Pours smoky pale yellow with thin white head that soon fades, thin patchy lacing. Aroma is honey, not much else.

Taste is tangy honey that dominates to much lesser extent as in aroma, as well as light acidic citrus, the beer is neither too sweet, nor cloying. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation, alcohol is very well hidden, towards the end light warming can be felt.

I never expected that honey beer can be this good and refreshing.

Bottle at Celibar in Warsaw. From notes.

A - Poured gold. No visible carbonation. No head and no lacing. A little hazy.

S - Honey. Very sweet smelling. A little grainy.

T - Chamomile tea? Honey, floral, very sweet. Floral in the finish. Lot's of honey up front. I wrote down 'don't like'.

M - Medium carbonation. Feels watery in the body.

O/D - Not all that good really. Sweet. Not boring but not good. Just way too much honey.

Had a bottle of this at the Sketch bar in Warsaw about a month ago. Poured with a small head and no lace. Short lived head. Hazy amber color. Aroma is good honey and so is taste. While the honey is so dominant, it still isn't overpowering and the beer is quite tasty. Decent body. Sweet yet good finish. Nice carbonation. Proly not a session beer. Be good to cook with.

A: Pours a clear honey color with a small amount of foamy white head, which dissipates completely fairly quickly, leaving no lacing.

S: Densely sweet honey and fruit.

T: All kinds of honey, very sweet, with a touch of graininess.

M: Fairly light, low carbonation.

Overall this tastes almost like some kind of beer cocktail. I'm not really a fan, but I imagine the right person could like it quite a bit.

a very festive winter spiced beer quality but i would say great at blending the qualities of honey and beer. not on a brewing with honey quality like some of the belgians but more so as a post brewing mix. pour is cloudy honey orange color and a nose of clover and mild pine citrus. palate was a great balance of zest and pollen but quite forward. the beer had a nice quality of feel that had the tingle of sweets and citrus till the end even though the beer itself look completely flat.
