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.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 From a bottle. Cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Light honey aroma with hints of apple. Slightly bitter cheese flavor dulled and sweetened by the presence of honey. Sounds weird but I sorta like it. Lots of yeast flavor in this as well. Good job of using honey without having it dominate the flavor. Dry finish. Decent stuff.

5000 (6263) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle: Pale gold, dirty if you will, extremely hazy (cloudy to me means bits floating about), huge white rocky head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft floral aroma, light sourness, whiffs of white necco wafers, with perhaps a little bit of citrus on the back side.   Very dull floral flavor up front, not bright or sharp like a regular saison which is why I would guess the honey imparts that on the beer.   Yeasty, slightly bready, tasty but definitely a tame Saison.   Smooth, and not bubbley on the tongue like other examples.   Moderate body.   Semi-sweet finish, lingering yeastiness, but pretty much void of any floral aspects.   Enjoyable, but not bright or shiny enough for my tastes.

Tejas (871) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Bubbly white head. Yeasty sweet aroma. Little cloudy gold color. Flavor is a lot different than what I was expecting. Actually has some mint flavors to it. Bubbly tingly palate. Pretty tasty. I like it b/c itís a lot different than anything Iíve tried thus far. This would be perfect on a summer night sitting outside. Drinkability is fine. 8% is hidden extremely well. Iím a tad surprised at the 80 rating.

Dark golden and very hazy. Good white head lasted fairly well. I think the unusual aroma is reminiscent of the musty scent you get when a beekeeper is spinning the comb to extract the honey. I was expecting sweetness in the taste, but itís much subtler than that. Sourness and bitterness are more predominant than the honey. Reminds me of the old-fashioned sweet we used to call cough candy.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle, 25cl. Hazy golden colour, almost orange. Small and disappointingly brief head. Aroma is moderately malty but couldnít quite found the honey. Flavour is yeasty and spicy. Without being overwelming sweet, you can easily sense the honey. The end is bitter and a little dry. To me, itís a very good option because i didnít quite enjoy saison dupont ...

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2005
(on 25cl bottle)A very odd aroma of smoke and raw meat! No head and a flat, dark yellow colour. very powerfull honey tase; sweet and fat, with some vax too. Semidry finish, not a long finish. The 8% cannot be felt or detected. Should be served cool.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2005
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a off-white head. Honey, bubblegum aroma and a sweet perfumed honey taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

Sigmund (5088) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2005
Bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Funky farmhouse aroma with notes of honey. Flavour has some honey (not much), but is surprisingly dry. A bit watery and bland though.

DanielBrown (3789) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle at Den Tatorverede Enke during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Cloudy yellow, with a nice aroma of flowers and lemsip. Very smooth, with some medicine and a lemon sharpness around the finish. Full in the mouth - good length. Some pleasant honey flavour.

hazed yellow with a white bubbled pocked head. pepto bismol thier aroma back. chalky mouthfeel, woody pepto flavor, some would call it mint, they would be wrong. the only thing that lets me know honey was used in this is the thin body. a bit of a pepper taste lingers after the finish.
