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.

This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy typically carbonated yellow-orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops sweet and dough. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught: Strange aroma. Smelled of spices, yeast, citrus, lemon, bubblegum, and menthol. Poured a golden orange color with a big, foamy, white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Sparkling. Hazy. Medium sweet flavor. Tasted of yeast, spices, honey, coriander, bubblegum, pine, and banana. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Quick, tingly finish. Overall, interesting, but I am not sure what some of the flavors are.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
750 ml bottle. Cloudy whitish yellow colour. Very tall white merengue head, that clings to the glass. Notes of bacon in the aroma. Mellow wheaty flavours. Yeasty texture. Characteristic saison-like flavours. Funky yeast and estery flavours.

anders37 (20883) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a white head. Sweet malty honey aroma. Sweet malty warming honey flavor with some spicy hints. Malty warming finish with a long aftertaste of honey.

pivnizub (9728) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle (250ml): Golden, stable and creamy head, lots of floaties visible; sweet fruity-orangey nose with a distinctive mouldy touch; robust sweet (tart-)bitter flavour, medium bodied; strong bitter-sweet finish with a distinctive touch of mould. Disappointing, no pleasure.........

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours hazy burnished yellow-gold with a fluffy white head. Light saison yeast esters, alcohol, faint honey, and malt in the nose. Flavor is straightforward with significant alcohol and light malt flavors--very little, if any, indication of honey in the flavor. Mouthfeel is somewhat out of balance in this beer--the light, wispy flavors seemed pushed around by the alcohol density.

yespr (37603) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange, with yeast sediments floating around, has a lacing white head. Honey and malt dominated aroma with minor yeast notes. Wheat flavoured with a honey scent on top, again minor yeast notes (bubblegum). Honey and bitter finish. Nice.

JoeinDahlem (1408) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2007
Gorgeous, hazy, dark orange with a white hat of froth that lasted ’til the end. BIG aroma of honey with faint citrus notes. Flavor is honey sweet, which was a surprise because with a Dupont beer I expected more of that to ferment out. Some mild bitterness toward the back end, some light alcohol, nicely dry finish. Lively but thick mouthfeel. I found it delicious, but I think it could have entered another realm if it had been less sweet. Maybe laying a bottle down for a couple of years would do the trick?

ChainGangGuy (4656) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Appearance: Pours a hazy, straw-colored body with a short-lived white head. Smell: Aroma of flowers and ripened bananas. Taste: Sweetish, fruity bananas laden flavor with hints of honey, lemon juice, flowers, and spices. Finishes citric and sour. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated. Watery texture. Drinkability: Just another saison for me.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2007
750mL bottle. poured a hazy orange-gold color, with a huge, long lasting white frothy head. Aroma is very sweet; honey in the foreground, with some wheat and malt.Moderately sweet flavor; the honey again is present, with some floral character, perhaps lavendar, with malt and pepper. Flavorful and refreshing.
