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.

Cork says 2002. Bought in Belgium 2003. Golden hazy color. Crisp lively carbonation. Very dry body. Less honey than expexted and a bit dissapointing in taste. Average Saison. To old maybe?

Pours a cloudy golden color with floaties and a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of honey, hops and yeast. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Not one of the best offerings from this stellar brewery but still very interesting.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle (2005) and served in my Duval snifter: Pours a hazy yellow hue with a fluffy soft pillow that left very good lace. The aroma has a surprising fruity tartness vapour I was not expecting. I don’t get a lot of honey on the nose. Also detected cobweb yeast esters and an grassy hops character. The taste starts grainy and yeasty with a solid earthiness before a dash of acidic fruit (apple and lemon) cuts through and displays a touch of honey as well as some chamomile and grains of paradise. The mouth feel is lively but still soft except for the acidic twang. A solid brew but I am not sure if the bottle has been kept well. Will look at a re-rate at a later date.

Cork says 2005. Pours gold into a tulip. Fluffy white micro head slowly recedes with little lacing. Lemon and yeast aromas. Sour apple with caramel and honey. Dry, slightly bitter finish.

Lovely honey tones. A bit spicy, yet crisp and refreshing. A warming, gentle brew.

pours hazy yellow, smells nice with grassy aroma, taste great with honey, spice, and berry flavor, pretty smooth and refreshing. would like to have again.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2006
Dark yellow colored, hazy appearance. Medium sized vanishing white head. Aroma is good with spices, sweet and sour yeast and even some licorice. Mild alcohol with fruits also there. Medium bodied, crispy palated brew. Flavor has obvious sourness with apple and some yeast, lemon with mild alcohol in lasting aftertaste. Spices also last in aftertaste.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Saison pour is classic. How will this honey play out? Spicey on the nose with light lemon-grass and perhaps some lithe blackberry fruit. The palate starts of in a floral way with a sweet and spring-like honey that turns to a healthy bitterness. This beer is about the spice and bitterness of honey, although I believe the fruit is still not betrayed. Nice with some Baklava.

Nice golden hazy pour with a thin white head. Aroma was grassy with a hint of honey and citris. Tasted crisp with lemon and sweet honey. Seemed to be some yeast in there as well. Finished dry and slightly bitter. Good brew

Honey is quite evident but not the preminent feature of this great beer, well bodied but drinkable, strong, spicy, with a dry finish, up at the level of the best products of this excellent brewery.
