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.

Golden ale colour, foamy white head. Aroma and taste are mainly yeasts and a faint honey tone, along with a bitter freshness. Aftertaste’s a bit dry. As it warms, it gets more floral and fruity (I even get apple juice?). Thin bodied sadly, relatively high carbonation.

Tap at Max’s. Pours clear amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, lemon zest, faint spices, floral and grassy notes, and faint citrus. Flavor is dry malts forward, strong Belgian yeast esters, faint floral hops, light fruit esters, and faint toast; semisweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Draft at Max’s Belgian Beer Festival. Pours hazy copper brown with a thick, creamy white head. Tastes dry, bitter, hoppy and nutty. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, roasted, and like hops.

ruigo (1068) - PORTUGAL - JAN 29, 2014
Shared a 25cl from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a clear golden colour with a white lacing. Aroma is quite fruity. Average carbonation and light to medium body, mostly due to its alcohol. Taste is bitter with a short sweet note and a dry finish. Overall, a bit unbalanced but nice.

kbudd19 (576) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle, bit of an explosive all of my or couch. Beautiful white crisp head, looks like golden honey in a glass. Aroma - dry citrus hops, grass, something weird rice with soy sauce? Probably just the honey. Taste - thick carbonated mouthfeel, hops, Has a Belgian triple feel to it with some lemon yeasty overtones, a bit of honey towards the middle, a nice dose of hops followed with a fairly bitter/dry finish and a strange aftertaste. Not what I’ve come to expect from a saison but a very interesting brew nonetheless.

allmyvinyl (3135) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2014
250ml bottle at home. Pours hazy golden yellow, thick, rocky white head, loads of floaters. Loads. Dirty honey and saison yeast aromas, perhaps bubblegum. Something in me wants me to hold my nose whilst I drink it. That said, I’m not the biggest fan of honey, in beer or anywhere else. Taste is OK, pepper and more gummy sweetness. Clean finish, thankfully.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Rating #912 - January 14, 2014 - 250ml Bottle from Coop. Pours a golden yellow with a carbonated white foam that goes on for days (yeast clocking in for some OT). Aroma is floral honey and funk. Palate is actually quite sweet, lots of floral lavender notes, as well as a sticky sweetness. Mild sour note from the yeast. Not enough gumption in the funk for a real rippin’ saison, but this is certainly light, sweet, and crushable.
