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.

Bottle from Hopduvel, Gent. Hazy gold colour with a strong, off-white head. Aroma was very floral with some yeasty notes. Flavour was dominated by honey, it reminded me of a crunchie bar. Not the best Dupont product.

Thanks to hatchy for sharing. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of honey, floral, citrus, various spices, floral and some bready sweet malts. Flavor of honey, floral, various spices, slightly earthy, tropical fruits and citrus.

Dedollewaitor (14811) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2007
Unclear orange with fine little head. The aroma is splendid - sweet honey, fruits (orange & yeast) Taste of sweet malts, honey and light spice & again a fruity (citrus/orange touch) Medium body, light creamy smooth mouthfeel & nicely carbonated. Higly enjoyable & easy drinkable. Another quality product from Dupont!

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
Honey aroma, mixed with some barnyard, which adds up to a peculiar beer. Earthy tones, sweetness. The honey lingers in the finish. Puzzling. Almost there.

thebeertourist (5127) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
75 cl bottle. Cloudy orangey amber with a huge offwhite head. Aroma of honey and malt. Strog herbal and honey flavours, farmyard presence. Good carbonation, medium body. Complex it may be, but it still does not achieve favourite status by me.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 8, 2007
(750 ml bottle (2005) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/wells/tul target=blank>Tully’s) Pretty nice Belgian...Pours fairly cloudy goldish amber with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma is mostly yeasty, slightly bready and hints of honey. Mouthfeel is soft and light. Lightly fizzy. Flavor is mostly yeasty, quite tangy, hints of lemony citrus. Sweet and sour, probably a little more sour. Hints of black pepper, esp. in finish. Alcohol very well-hidden. Honey not apparent in taste. Quite refreshing but didn’t enjoy it as much as the Dupont V.P.

Palidor19 (3076) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2007
quite a sweet tangy sensation. The honey is very apparent. malty yet the carbonation has a soft feel to it. flavor of light citrus and dry malts

I really don’t like this one. The aroma is medicinal with perfume, yeast, honey, incense, and flowers. The appearance is hazy gold with a medium sized head. The flavor is sweet and malty but it has all the elements from the aroma. The palate is OK but this beer is almost nauseating to me.

rating from memory, had this on tap at hopleaf. poured golden hazy with big white head. nose is pretty funky with sweet honey notes. flavor is much of the same, a sweet saison style with yeast, honey, and spice. nice!
