COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Honey ale.
ZoemZoem is een parelend amberblond honingbier met een heerlijke schuimkraag. Een honingbier waar je wel het lekkere aroma en de fijne geur van honing in terugvinden kan maar dat niet suikerzoet smaakt, zoals honing wel doet. ZoemZoem is een complex bier dat je doet verlangen naar zonnige zomers met vrolijk zoemende bijtjes. Van dit seizoensbier is momenteel maar één brouwsel gebrouwen. ZoemZoem is gebotteld in 33cl flesjes en 75cl champagneflessen.

Dark hazy amber colour. Aroma is sweet and a bit fruity, as is the flavour. Flavour also has a hint of honey which becomes more prominent in the finish.

16/II/2012 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: XI/13 (2012-131)

Very cloudy orange beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable and adhesive. Big chunks floating around. Aroma: lots of summer fruits, peaches, ripe melons, citrus, a bit floral. MF: low to no carbon, medium body, creamy texture. Taste: fruity start, citrus, pretty sour, little sweet, some ripe fruits and sugar, then nice bitter floral hops. Aftertaste: little sweet, dry bitter ending with ripe fruits still coming through.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2012
(Bottled, BBE 11/2013) Opaque amber with a medium, firm and lacy head. Honey-cerealy-malty, sweetish nose with strawberries and ripe fruit. Flavor is honeyish and somewhat sweet, but not cloying. Also berries strongly present with some raspberry stones and a touch of acidity with a harsh bitterness from the hops. Slightly smoother and better with yeast. Quite full body despite the fizzy CO2. Hides the alcohol well. I wonder if some NZ hops have been (over)used in this, given the harsh, exotic, lingering bitterness. 5547

33cl bottle. Hazy orange/brown with small white head. Nose : yeast, caramel, toffee, honey, tart, ginger bread. Sip : creamy and good carbonation. Sweet, tart like flavour. Honey and toffee in the background. Smooth to drink and tasty.

Bottle @ home. Hazy orange colour with a decent, full size white head. Smells yeast, grassy, flowers and sharp. Tastes sweet, honey, syruppy. Not my type of beer. Good carbo, medium body.
