COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Biere de Miel is bottle conditioned and contains only water, barley and wheat, honey, hops and yeast. It has a marvelously delicate scent of honey, balnaced by a dry palate, resulting in a beer that is both estery and refreshing.

Disclaimer: Both the normal and the organic (biologique) version.

Koelschtrinker (10435) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Südlich heller, deutlich hefiger Antrunk. Hell würzig, zu süß, hell malzig, etwas Kaugummi. Nicht wirklich rund. 10/9/8/8//7

Alengrin (898) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Artisanal organic honey beer from the brewery which practically invented organic beers in Belgium (and practically invented saison for that matter, but anyway). Creamy, dense, sticky head, stable at the edges of the glass, colour amber with a brownish hue, misty. Powerful, rich and refreshing aroma of artisanal honey, chocolate, gingerbread, brandy, balsamic vinegar, strawberry, gin, dates; soft malty taste, caramel, honeyish middle, becoming dryer towards the finish, spicy hops, complex but less than expected considering the promising aroma. Nevertheless a beautiful and exemplary honey ale.

Camons (5785) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2014
Draught @ Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. Pours hazy dark yellow with a creamy white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, little sweet, grass, light peach. Flavor is rather sweet, malt, yeast, little spice, honey, grass, little fruity. Medium body, lively carbonation, some alcohol in the finish. 280714

wvhoran (157) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a large off-white head. Nice esters, toasty malt, yeast, fruits, obvious honey. Flavour is sweet malt, yeast, honey. I like this beer not for it’s masterful balance or harmonious flavours but because it is unique and enjoyable.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2014
33cl bottle. I have a hard time with this... minty spearmint gum / mint lifesavers crossing over into medicinal "Icy Hot" territory, and once that association is set it’s hard to get past. Malt is bready / lightly toasty, yeast is super phenolic, honey character minimal (for me), hops nearly nonexistent. Medium body, sweet and syrupy, sticky even. Honey-ish in the mouth, unlike the nose, but still minty and medicinal. Sorry folks, as much as I love Dupont, this one is beyond me.

mikske79 (1096) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 3, 2014
Zeer diverse smaak maar het was absoluut een tegenvaller. Hoeveel keer je er ook een slok van neemt, het wordt niet beter

jookos (2061) - FINLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle. Light orange, hazy. Pretty intensive nose- sort of wit- yeasty spicy with coriander and citrus, oranges zest, but more malty, belgy blong- like. Quite nice really, and intensive- reeks across the table. Soft medium full body, bit of an oily palate. Oranges, slight hayish malts. I really liked the wit-ty feel, and good initial flavours. Some murky old malts there after letting it sit a while, geets bit boozy as it warms.

mkel07 (3300) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
750ml bottle from Grand Central Cellars. Spicey flavour with a mix of fruit throughout. Crisp and clean.

Mad_Ferret (644) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
Draught sample @ Akkurat, 22/5-14. Golden, slight hazy. Sweet sticky yeasty nose with dough, banana, citrus and some spice and honey. Flavour is sweet and cloying with banana, yeast, honey, citrus, dough. Sticky mouthfeel. Might work better on another day for me.

vtafro (3216) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle. Golden hazy pour with tan head. Minty flavor, yeast, farmhouse tones. Aroma is like honey, light spice. yeast and farmhouse tones.
