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.

I was looking for a honey weis and was given a saison. But that is fine. It is a really great tasting beer. The flavor is typical saison and a bit hoppy but sweeter then most because is has the addition of honey. teriffic finish. I really don care how it looks as donít as it tastes good but as it should it pours a light cloudy yellow. Nice tasting beer.

Courtesy SoLan. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick, foamy white head. Very floral nose, extremely sweet malty smell. Sweet apple and honey really stand out in the front of the smell, but once you get around that, it is an unmistakeable rubber smell. SoLan figured it out, its when you get that new pair of Nikeís and you bring them home and you first open the box and you get that rubber smell. Thats it. The taste doesnt have any rubber characters, thank God, more of a sweet honey taste. Candy sugar and sweet fruits round out the flavors. Easy to drink, with a smooth sweet finish the whole way through.

75cL bottle split with 4 other people on 9/14/06 at cafe directly across the street from Dupont Brewery. This beer has a lot of ground to make up, the only times Iíve tried this beer before the only thing that came to mind was spearmint Skoal chew. That bad. Figured a fresh bottle should be a little better right? Still had a slight band-aid flavor to it, just a little too estery for me. Bonus points for the drunk guy showing us how to "drink de miel!" while we were there.

A disappointing aroma of a mere pale lager. No honey or spices. Flavor is of a light saision, considerble yeast, and just a little spice. Lightly hopped.

750ml. Bottle $6.00 Samís Downers Grove Bottled 2006 Biere de Miel poured a chill hazed honey golden with rapidly rising carbonation. A 2 finger fluffy head formed on the pour that took itís sweet time to recede. Small carbonation bubbles rise in streams to the white bubbly head. Leaves spotted lacing. Very refreshing looking. This saison has more of the horseblanket aroma than what I remember Saison Dupont having. Horseblanket aromas show themselves along with a solid scent of goldenrod and a very floral honey. The deeper you inhale the scent the more the floral qualities of the honey come out. Starts with a mild horseblanket flavor that leads into the floral honey sweetness on the finish. Faint haylike qualities before the horseblanket comes back around after the swallow. Interesting flavors and very enjoyable. As it warms more of the floral qualities come forward making it more balanced and enjoyable. Extremely nice mouthfeel. Light bodied with high carbonation gives the beer that frothy texture when it hits your tongue. Very enjoyable. Finishes mildly dry. Easy drinker and very refreshing. Iím splitting this bottle but would really like it all for myself. Biere de Miel is an all around enjoyable saison. Interesting flavors compared to saisons Iíve sampled in the past. The honey really adds a nice touch. 3/26/07

Cloudy yellow color with a thin head. Thatís where the goodness ends. The aroma reminds me of stale nachos with aged Cheese Whiz from the Metrodome. At least the flavor gets the cheese out of there. The stale tortilla chips, however, remain. Honey? Are you kidding me?

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Sampled at mini tasting group. Pours an average golden pale yellow brew with a frothy white head. Aroma is just barely starting to grow a skonk but could pick up scents of honey, yeast, wonder white bread, and some floral hops. Taste is highly carbonated, with some spiciness, coriander and even bubble gum. Not much in honey flavor. Finish is light and clean.

Picked this one up at Surdykís in Minneapolis. Cloudy orange color with faint white head. Lager like nose with an intriguing dry mead hint to it. Sweet honeyish flavor among a similarly lagerish body.

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.
