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.

Muggus69 (1267) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
750mL corked Champagne bottle Pours a hazy orange gold body with a big white foam. Aroma is decent; honey apparent, providing a flora touch to notes of cereally malts, white pepper, & light fruity esters Medium body, dry, high carbonation, well attenuated a touch of acidity, but less so than most Saisons. Cereally, husky malts upfront on the palate, some bready notes, leading onto light spices, floral honey & ripe pear-like esters. Drying finish. It’s alright, a bit underwhelming.

Holmen1 (2716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
0,25 flaske hjemme: kort filmskum. Aroma av krydder og litt honningsødme. Smaken gir det samme inntrykket - krydder dominerer over honning, og den har en ganske tørr avslutning. Brusende munnfølelse. Slank og elegant for sin voltstyrke.

Je trouve que ça sent franchement bon! Miel mais aussi fleurs sauvages sont de la partie. L’odeur est assez pénétrante et c’est tant mieux car c’est un plaisir pour le nez! Il y a vraiment quelque chose dans cette odeur qui m’envoûte... En bouche, c’est pétillant à souhait et le corps est très bien... C’est très "vivant" comme bière. Vraiment très bon... C’est sucré mais sans tomber dans l’excès. C’est remplie de flaveurs explosives de miel et de fleurs. Wow!

Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Sugary aroma of apricot, grain and peas. Sweet earthy taste with some sourness.

mile (3093) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet aroma, some fruitiness with honey, light spiciness (coriander) and hoppyness. Body medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, light fruitiness with honey, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, some honey and light spiciness with light hoppyness, faint alcohol. Saison with honey - not for me. Way too sweet being saison.

Kleurplaatje (44) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 25cl bottle poured into tulip glass. Quite hazy blond beer with creamy white head that disappears too quickly according to my liking and which remains thin. Aromas of honey, yeast, wheats and honey are remarkable. Did I mention the honey already? Indeed, it’s been largely honey in the first quarter. The taste is moderately sweet, slightly bitter and slightly dry in its finish. The aftertaste reminds us of the honey and gives it a clear sweet honey-ish character in general. Despite the 8% abv, it lacks that warmish feeling of the alcohol (dangerously well hidden though). Medium body with a bit of a creamy texture and quite lively carbonation. Reminded me a bit of a Belgian tripel and wheat beers, but it is just a bit in the middle. Less stronger than a tripel and a bit sweeter than most wheat beers. Nice and enjoyable brew with a soft feeling and an interesting honey (after)taste. Not that extremely special, but it would be lovely to have one or two bottles on a rainy day in autumn.

Südlich heller, deutlich hefiger Antrunk. Hell würzig, zu süß, hell malzig, etwas Kaugummi. Nicht wirklich rund. 10/9/8/8//7

Alengrin (2355) - 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.
