Bottle 33 cl. colour is golden orange with a lovely head.The beer started to foam heavily when pouring it out(the second time I experience this with a Bieken) and I had to pour it out into two glasses.
Beside this, the beer tasted wonderfull with notes of honey and yeast. Not too bitter, lovely sweetness (and yet not too sweet): a lovely combination of tastes. I really like this stuff!

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 Bottle. Simply the best honey beer I have tasted. Honey gold in colour with a lacy white head, it knocks you for six with a sublime aroma of honey and burnt sugar, kept from oversweetness by peppery hop hints. On the tongue it’s smooth and rich but never cloying. Delightful stuff that I highly recommend.
I should note that the two bottles I bought at GBBF 08 were both vile and not worth a 2.5 let alone my original score. What’s happened?

Somewhat of a rust color (although the lighting in the restaurant made it difficult to see) with a nice lemony aroma. A rather astringent hop bitterness yet quite flavorful and filling.

bottle at ethereals. Sweet scent of honey bees :-) more like honey combs rather than honey. Amber colour, little white head, steady fine bubbles. a lot of honey beers either dont taste of honey or are overly overbearingly honey sweeeet, but this is neither. Expertly balanced. just right. gorgeous, and the label is too cute.
