3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has set honey and some cornflakes going on in the background - it’s quite single dimensional but it has great depth. The taste is again one-dimensional with the honey but again it has more depth. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a reasonably clean finish, Overall, decent.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Little white head. Light crispy dry palate. Lagerish malt with an odd perfumey thing going on. Caraway nuttyness. Dry finish with a whisper of hops. All right if a little left field.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle thanks to Finn for sharing. Clear copper coloured body. Bubbly white head leaving dotted spots to the glassware. Restrained aroma of earthy, mid-sweet malts. Prominent taste of honey sweetness. Not overly sweet to the ending. Soft and nice (at Finns in Tromsø, 02.01.2013).

Flaske 0,33l fra Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Brygg 81. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i H9 2 Jan 13. Gylden. Kritthvitt tett skum med litt lacing. God fyldig fruktaroma. Litt metallisk. Smaken er litt honning & blomster - men det blir mer og mer honning. God - men litt ensformig.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle at Appellation Wines. Pours golden hazy with a nice white head. Nose has obvious white honey and some baked sweetness . The taste is also lots of honey and also yeast, but somehow it works with the malts. Medium bodied and very drinkable with a nice long finish. A nice variation and shows the quality of good beer making compared to other honey beers.
