Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, honey, fruit. Tastes malty, very fruity, with a lot of honey, berry,hops, sweet finish. Decent, but a but on the sweet side.

33cl bottle. I expected a lot, but got dissappinted. Not much flavour at all! I’ve seen better honey based beers.

Bue à la maison en bouteille de 33cl, couleur ambrée peu de mousse effervescence moyenne, gros goût de miel de chataigner sinon, c’est de la flotte sans intérêt.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma - corny, caramel (cracker jack like), and stank wet cardboard Appearance - body is a golden ambler color; liquid is just a touch hazed, with some nucleation; the head is white and about 1/2" and quickly ends up a layer of foam Taste - unpleasantly wet cardboard, corny quality. There isn’t much in the way of honey, some tiny bits of caramel. Palate - body is nearly medium; the texture is somewhere between thin and thick; carbonation is average, but closer to soft; the finish is tangy and the caramel, corny, and wet cardboard quality hangs near the teeth and gums. I’m really upset. I really loved the offering they had with Bourganel Bière au Nougat, that didn’t have great ratings. However, that was good. The last two beers by Bourganel, have been really poor. Sadly, I’m wondering if I was off on my rating of Bourganel Bière au Nougat.

Sampled at Rattle N Hum, NYC. Pours clear dark golden with a small off white head. Aroma of vegetable, herbs, floral aspects and dough. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

wlajwl (4922) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma is sweetish malts, mild nuttiness and a hint of honey. The flavor is similar to the aroma. Not bad as a whole but almost too much sweetness, bordering on cloying.

Une saveur miel bien trop prononcée. Cela masque tout le reste. Sans intérêt.
