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.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2006
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

maxbeer (118) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2006
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.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2006
2006 750. Beer is murky, medium, pale yellow-gold with a large frothy, white, mostly lasting head. The aroma is equisite—feminine, delicate and earthy. Breaks down to malty with light notes of toasted grain, trace of cookie; Hoppy with a trace note of resin/pine, light notes of chamomile, lemon zest and clean, dry straw; Yeasty with a light note of barnyard; Moderate-to-heavy note of nougatty, heavily floral honey acts as a base for everything else, including notes of light vanilla/snickerdoodle and alcohol. Net is totally sublime. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic with a moderately sweet, lightly acidic/dry finish. Moderate alcoholic warmth. The body is medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2006
Gold blond, little hazy, no carbonation and a small white head. Strange aroma, herbs and even a touch of cold roasted bacon. Medium body, some sprankling, creamy sweet. Finish is bitter with some fruity touches. Rather strong hints, ending little dry-yeasty with some warmer alcoholic notes. Again rather herby. Strange beer, without much of the honey taste, but definitly a surprise.

DocLock (8503) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy golden pour with 3-finger off-white head. Aroma of grainy malt, hopcitrus, some lemongrass. The flavor is funky malty, with a big honey and citrus flavor.

Habanero (3176) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle: Pours misty golden with an off- white head that is short lasting. The aroma is of flowerish honey and hay . The flavour is of honey, weak malt and citrus fruit. Light to medium bodied. Slightly sweet and bitter finish.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle from Santa, and a surprise vintage - 2002 - only seen on the inside of the cork. Rating from memory (of 2 hours ago), so this may not be too detailed. Nice estery fruit aroma, spicy and unsurprisingly reminiscent of regular Dupont. It’s that same chewy yeast that is most prevalent. The honey is noticable but subtle in the flavor and imparts a gentle sweetness to the beer. A pretty strong alcoholic kick with this one.
