On-tap at the brewpub. Most honey beers are something I avoid, but this unpasteurized version, and given the shortage of bees, is something I would give homage to. Quebec also seems to have an expertise in honey and blending, this with corriander and orange peel both not my favorites but gave it ago. The orange tasted like an essence. Lace, medium mouthfeel. Pretty good honey aroma.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost-clear brown body with a medium beige head. The basis is a brown cake and roots with a light caramel coasting covered by honey and a small mix-bag of fruits. The spiciness is interesting and unusual. You’ve got the traditional coriander but also some herbal flavours I couldn’t put a name on (spicy candy type of flavour). Felt like a 5%. Great original beer. If it was bottled, mosquitoes would catch a buzz after biting me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown in colour, beige coloured head, some light lacing. The aroma had some citrus (oranges and some lemon), very sugary sweet, some caramel malts, some floral hop. The sweetness continues in the flavour, very sugary, some berries, flowers, spice, light citrus. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, some spice. No noticable alcohol, the sweetness and spices try to balance out but in the end this is just a little too sweet for me.
Draught at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPlace.asp? target=blank>Bedondaine et Bedons Ronds in Chambly, Quebec on December 28, 2006.

On tap at Bedondaine, the color is light amber. The aroma is of coriander. The flavor is both sweet and spicy, you can reely feel the honey and also the fruityness of oranges.Let us not forget the hops, they are there you can smell and taste them very well in this beer.

Draught. Dark copper-brown body with a medium-sized white creamy head. Floral aroma consisting of some citrus, candy sugar, perfume, honey, and caramel malt. Cereal flavours along with honey but the spices counteract in a very natural and warming way. Delicate balance with no alcohol presence.
I’m always pleasantly surprised by some of the offerings at this brewpub because I have no idea what I’m ordering and I end up with some interesting spicy concoction.
