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.

Outstanding!! I could drink this ’til the cows come home. Amber colored beer with a sweet honey nose, bit of bananna and clover. Flavors are pretty much the same. I enjoyed it immensly and would buy if found again. Nice label too.
