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.

A tiny 25cl bottle, slightly hazy and no head, so loses a couple of points for that. The nose is quite delicate, and there is a hint of honey, nice! Surprisingly, the palate is pretty dry, I was expecting a sweetish brew but thankfully not! Remarkably refreshing, with a lingering finish. A Ronnie beer.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Slightly hazy, almost clear golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and floral. Flavor starts sweet and fruity (white grape and light citrus) followed by some peppery spice and a tangy, light dry finish. Medium body is smooth with champange like carbonation.

Shag (2768) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2007
A golden apperance with a rather large head. A spicy lemon filled aroma is present. The flavor is a mixture of sweet and sour with a strong dose of honey coming through. I also taste some lemons and apricots. Some spices present in the finish. Overall this was pretty good.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 13, 2007
750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of honey, grain, mild barn yard funk, and yeast. The taste can best be described as what you would expect a honey saison to taste like. Bready/yeasty some what tart honey flavor. Decent.

Ratman197 (12668) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2007
750 ml bottle poured a cloudy maize with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of honey, fruitiness, spice and light banana. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of honey, spice and light banana with a smooth semisweet finish.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Pours a deep golden. Very spicy yeasty nose, with very little sweetness, but very nice. Great sweet character of honey, and tropical fruits on the palate, with a fantastic floral finish, that finishes very dry.

thedm (5436) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy typically carbonated yellow-orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops sweet and dough. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught: Strange aroma. Smelled of spices, yeast, citrus, lemon, bubblegum, and menthol. Poured a golden orange color with a big, foamy, white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Sparkling. Hazy. Medium sweet flavor. Tasted of yeast, spices, honey, coriander, bubblegum, pine, and banana. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Quick, tingly finish. Overall, interesting, but I am not sure what some of the flavors are.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
750 ml bottle. Cloudy whitish yellow colour. Very tall white merengue head, that clings to the glass. Notes of bacon in the aroma. Mellow wheaty flavours. Yeasty texture. Characteristic saison-like flavours. Funky yeast and estery flavours.

anders37 (21888) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a white head. Sweet malty honey aroma. Sweet malty warming honey flavor with some spicy hints. Malty warming finish with a long aftertaste of honey.
