Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2004
Bottled, at the Lowlander, London.
Golden with suspended debris, that didnít settle. Medium head reducing to thin. Organic honey flavour, that is sweet with rustic sourness. Strong bitter flavour muscles quickly over the sweetness.

Very tart, soured pineapple and tropical fruits in the aroma. Opaque, golden-yellow with decent cover of white head. Sour fruit continues in the flavour with plenty of honey sweetness to balance and a long, herbal finish. Acidity appears as an intermittent moodswing. Soft and bubbly with smooth mouthfeel. Iím happy to have tried this one, but donít imagine Iíll revisit often. Bottle sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere at Spuyten Duyvil (Brooklyn, New York).

MartinT (8236) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 Heavy honeyed mint perfume attracts but the flavor detracts from the initial curiosity...A fluffy carbonation renders lots of yeast and a sometimes bothersome acidic character, offshoot of the strong honey methinks, or possibly some green hops...A quirky gal this Bieken, an interesting acquaintance but certainly no long-term relationship potential...

Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Nice lasting 1cm white head. Cloudy golden body. Unexpected aroma where the honey is barely present and indeed lets the throne to this weird sour grass like huge yeast aroma. Made me think of a skunked beer in fact, not that it comes close. Hints of powder sugar, honey jar (as much the dry ceramic jar than the content), powder sugar. Strikingly dry yeasty taste. Agressive sourness, badly aged honey like. Rhubard and herbal suggestions. Like it was made with a trailorload of wheat. Slight alcohol bite. Watery texture, very lively carbonation, repelling. Left a very bad impression on me.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy light orange with a fluffy head. Aroma is thick dry honey. Taste is less sweet than I was expecting, which is good. Dry floral finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Aroma is sweet honey all lthe way with some straw. Far drier than one would expect from a honey beer, with a great soft mouthfeel, and tiny bit of egg noodle doughiness and pepper. Good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2004
Bottle. Quite dry for a honey beer. Some light candy sugar, lemon and spice, honey (of course). Typical Belgian yeastyness, slightly peppery and spicy on the finish, quite nice actually, well made.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2004
Bottle from The Wine Company, Slough, Berks Horrible Belgian ale with horrible yeast that is sour in a bad way (tastes spoiled). Drainpour

This is a ok Belgian Ale. Earthy, sweet, and some spicy flavors. Finishes smooth, clean, and crisp.
