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 at Den Tatoverede Enke, RBESG Pub Crawl, August 2005. Cloudy blonde appearance. Very perfumed with a strange cosmetic edge. Thereís a hint of barnyard but I donít find that and the perfumed honey easy bedfellows. And I found it rather sweet. Not really my scene.

marcus (6860) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 22, 2006
This golden ale poured with a generous white head, eliciting a sweet malty aroma. The flavor is quite mellow and slightly fruity, with a hoppy more bitter finish. A pleasant fermented honey flavor developed as the beer warmed.

Yellow body with long lasting head. Abundant citrus flavor throughout. A very light beer that is crisp. Overall refreshing.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Slightly cloudy dark yellow body with a great, frothy head that lasts a long time. Full aroma: lots of spices, slightly yeasty and much wheat. Mellow, light flowerery flavor, hints of citrus. A little bit thin, but overall very refreshing. The honey is a nice touch.

notalush (5070) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Cloudy golden pour with substantial, frothy head - lots of carbonation (but it is soft on the palate) - musty aroma, with very apparent honey, orange, various wildflowers - the flavor is not as heavy on the honey as the aroma suggests - starts pretty sweet, tasting like honey and oranges, but a hop bitterness, dryness, and delicate floral character settle in to balance things out - the finish gets a little thin, but this is a subtle and enjoyable beer.

madsberg (10480) - SÝborg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
Draught: Golden coloured. Hazy. Dense white head. Banana, sweetness and yeast in the aroma. Flavour is fruity and yeasty with some light spice characters. Is well balanced and quite easy to drink. Is quite citric and fruity in the end. Iím not usually a great fan of saisons and definately not honey in beers, but this is actually quite pleasing.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Pours hazy orange with a huge white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Sweet aroma, with banana, orange, and a backing funkiness. Not as earthy in the nose as other Saisons, presumably because of the honey. The flavor begins sweet, with a big orangey citrus taste. An earthiness creeps in about halfway through, and the finish is dry and acridly bitter.

beerbomb (201) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Very sweet, fruity pungent belgian yeast aroma-flavor has a very full bodied sweetness-i guess thats the honey-combined with the musty fruitiness of the saison, its an excellent beer-palate is just as good--interesting and very good--as far as i can tell, in the way of honey beers, this is the antithesis of jw dundees honey brown

bb (7051) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Bottle. Hazy amber beer with a nice off-white head. LIght earthy aroma with some malt and then some sweet honey. Becomes a dusty/honey aroma wityh an herbal background. Dry finish, but has a fruity flavor with some herbal (almost minty) tones. Some spice. Light but has some complexity
