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.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Strange tart floral aroma. Almost pineapple like. Anyone remember Flintstones vitamins? Orange, well carbonated, and cloudy. Esters and honey on the front, long, over sweet finish. Syrupy feel, but also very dry. Much stronger than any conventional saison deserves to be. Might be a good beer overall, but not for me.

jookos (1997) - FINLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle. Light orange, hazy. Pretty intensive nose- sort of wit- yeasty spicy with coriander and citrus, oranges zest, but more malty, belgy blong- like. Quite nice really, and intensive- reeks across the table. Soft medium full body, bit of an oily palate. Oranges, slight hayish malts. I really liked the wit-ty feel, and good initial flavours. Some murky old malts there after letting it sit a while, geets bit boozy as it warms.

Mad_Ferret (639) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
Draught sample @ Akkurat, 22/5-14. Golden, slight hazy. Sweet sticky yeasty nose with dough, banana, citrus and some spice and honey. Flavour is sweet and cloying with banana, yeast, honey, citrus, dough. Sticky mouthfeel. Might work better on another day for me.

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2014
Butelka 25cl. OCZY : piwo jest delikatnie mętne, o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest niewielka i nietrwała o kolorze białym. NOS : piwo ma świeże aromaty siana, surowego ciasta, zielonego jabłka, cytrusów i poziomek. Do tego dochodzą aromaty miodu. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane jak przystało na piwo z tego browaru. Ma wodnista konsystencje i oleistą teksturę. Piwo jest słodkie o ewidentnych nutach miodu. Ale ta słodkość nie dominuje piwa. Słodowe nuty surowego ciasta, siana przypominają, że to wciąż jest Saison. Do tego ta aromatyczna owocowość przejawiająca się przez cytrusy i poziomki.... Piwo jest delikatnie cierpkie o nutach cytrusów. Gorzkość jest umiarkowana i przypomina zioła i pestkę od jabłka. ODCZUCIA : piwo ma typowe dla tego browaru i stylu aromaty i nuty smakowe. Do tego dochodzi dobrze wyeksponowany aromat i smak miodu. No i ta poziomka. Super. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10

HerrBierkoenig (216) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 8, 2014
From 0.25l bottle. Version Biologique. BBD: 03/2015. Pours deep hazy golden to amber orange liquid (many particles floating inside) with big creamy white head - fell down medium quickly. Aroma: Gods aromas :)) Beautiful esters - mainly flowers, honey, some deeply sweet exotic fruits, yeast. Never sent such aroma :). Taste: light sweet to medium, light bitter, light sour. Again esters, but less harmonic. Honey, flowers, hops. Palate: light body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, long bittersweet dry aftertaste. Overall: Less carbonation and more noble bitterness would make this beer awesome, but all the way, excellent honey sweet Saison :)

Leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, hefig. Geschmack ebenfalls hefig fruchtig, bananig, würzig.
