Sporting one hefty whiff of dark honey gone awry (though hardly possible), this is a special brew indeed. Having a personal love of the things good that this bee’s elixir does for man, I’m naturally inclined to endorse a special brew such as this. Still, I wouldn’t speak highly of this bottle were it not for the absolutely gorgeous combination of honey, yeasts and a powerful alcohol presence to balance out the sting. A great honey-tinted offering.

Een lekker biertje. Een beetje zurig maar niet dat het overweldigend is. Dit ga ik zeker nog drinken

Icedwarf (331) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2014
Licht troebel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is bitter, licht zuur, citroen. Blijft lang hangen. Uitstekend bier met bijzondere goede smaak.

Aroma of fruits, honey, hops. Flavour is wonderfully restrained sweetness with a welcome hoppy bitterness in the finish. Congratulations to brewery Boelens for brewing a honey related beer that I enjoyed quite a lot.

Bottle from the brewery. Honey aroma, honey flavour. You are almost fooled into thinking it is sweet, but it is the honey aroma. The sugars are consumed, and a liberal amount of hops leave a robust bitter finish. Clever.

Bière au miel de 8,5 % abv, refermentée en bouteille. Couleur jaune orangé. Apparence voilée de levure en suspension, dû à un très important dégagement gazeux au décapsulage. Bulles fines partout en petites colonnes. Mousse blanche épaisse mais artificielle (gaz), nappe à 1mm assez crémeuse. Arômes de cassonade, miel, cigare, tabac blond, biscuit feuilleté, genièvre, houblon amer. 1ère bouche douce à soyeuse, assez épicée, avec un peu de malt blond et du houblon amer. Arrière-bouche piquante, sans vraie personnalité. 2ème bouche qui propose un bon rattrapage sur une épice plus distinguée, et qui est très fraîche. 3ème sur des fruits blancs, pointe de fumée et de nicotine. Arrière-bouche amère, bien tranchée et houblonnée. La longueur offre un équilibre beaucoup plus satisfaisant avec du malt/houblon/épices. La levure est amère aussi, mais bien structurée. L’alcool est correct, sans excès, mais je pense qu’il a aidé à une longueur plus intéressante. La finale prend encore un peu d’ampleur, belles saveurs. CONCLUSION : belle bière qui a le défaut de commencer de façon très déséquilibrée, mais qui fait un très beau chemin pour se redresser jusqu’à la finale.
