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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2005

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2005 The notes are for a 75 cl bottle, bbe Feb 07. Orange amber colour, vivid fizziness, large white frothy head. Nose of honey, hops and light esters. The taste is surprisingly dry, tarty on the fruity side, with cardboard and light bitterness which lasts into the aftertaste. Solid ’honey’ palate with good carbonation. 25 cl bottle, bbe March 2006. Hazy amber, dozens of tiny pearl necklaces, frothy white head which is not particularly stable (ap: 4) . Pleasant honey aroma with some ’animal’ (meaty) character and presence of hops (aroma: 7). Slightly sweetish and a bit peppery flavour revealing honey, rapidly growing into sharp lemony tartiness (flavour: 6). Medium bodied and spritzy on the palate (palate: 3). (Overall: 12, total score: 3.2.)

bambouchi (6) - Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2005 does not count
Cloudy yellow in color with pearly bubbles that quickly disapate. Aroma of clove(?), slight huney. The honey taste is mild and hidden. I would have liked a more pronounced flavor. This beer quickly loses flavor on the tastebuds and leaves an odd but not bad aftertaste. The initial taste is sweet but subtle, almost no middle taste at all. A decent beer but not one to buy a case of.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Hazy straw color with a quickly dead, initially fluffy white head, this saison has an aroma of flowers, mint, honey, yeasty sweetness, and a touch of alcohol. It’s medium-to-light-bodied with wheat acidity and alcohol dryness. The flavor is heavily spiced malt (although no spices are in this ale), a dash of honey, white peppers, and light fruits. Definitely a repeatable drink.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2005
A definite floral/sour honey sweetness pervades this beer. Poured a lasting soapy white head over a hazy golden-yellow body, medium mouthfeel. Wheaty malt, honey sweet, yeasty funk, with a dash of bread and pepper, nose has some pear notes as well. Finishes lightly bitter, faint sweet aftertaste. Nice to drink with some fruit, but not as nice as I’d like.

heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Medium golden, billowing head. Signature Dupont yeast aroma, whiff of hops. Moderately yeasty medium dry. Perhaps a touch lighter in body than say, Moinette. Yeasty. Good, but nowhere near the mastery of Saison Dupont.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2005
750 bottle that blew the cork after loosening the cage. Floral, citrus aroma and a hazy golden body. Strong honey flavor mixed with some light sour notes and summery grass and citrus. Lasting aftertaste that left me wondering "what is that?"

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - APR 26, 2005
Bottled. Straw gold color with a frothy white head. Bready aroma with floral notes. Clean flavor with a hint of honey. Light on the palate. Alcohol is present as it warms.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
honey is evident in the nose and palate. Almond blosson and clove notes are evident as is pepper and grass hoppy notes. Somewhat like honey bread with a hint of lemon. Nice clean finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2005
Very nice beer with a hazy yellow-golden color and with an outstanding big white head. Nice touches of yeast and fine citrus in the nose, well countered with soft spices and a flowery touch of honey. It has a clear refreshing taste and a good lively mouthfeel. Hints of pepper, citrus, wheat, white bread and some vegetal accents of herbs and hops. Afthertaste is ending with a nice bitter touch and a faint sourness.
