apparte l’esperienza nel birrificio devo dire che questa birra mi è piaciuta,ma mi aspettavo di più! l’aroma è poco percepibile e anche il gusto non è speciale come mi aspettavo..sicuramente una birra da ribere ma che per il momento non si fa ricordare!

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
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.

corkyrory66 (512) - BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2014
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.

angel77 (768) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 27, 2013
Botella de 33 cl en casa. Una noche de verano de 2012 en Llamas. Aromas dulces y maltosos. Cuerpo medio fácil de beber. Sabores bastante dulces. Habría que probarla nuevamente para recordarla

Borresteijn (4541) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
33cl Bottle from Hopduvel, Gent. Clear copper golden, white head. Aroma has lots of Brettanomyces funk, light tartness, nutmeg and clove, hops, honey-ish malts. Flavour is light tart, Brett, light spicy, apples, firm, almost harsh bitterness, nice mellow sweetness, bitter finish with some alcohol and Bretty spiciness. Medium-bodied, dry. Nice, but is the Brett intended?

Standard honey beer with a spicy and yeasty aroma. Better than the usual honey beer, but still average.
