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.

Scrapersnbeer (1490) - 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.

Glass in Brussels. White layer diminishing. Almost clear blonde color. Aroma is honey, orange peel, mango, butter. Taste is very sweet of caramel and nail polish.

On tap 0,25l. Pour a bright orange with a white head. Aroma of honey, cloves, herbs with fennel. Taste of honey, me mentol, floral notes and honey in the finish, along with a crisp spiciness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle of 25 cl. I love this beer. She’s not one of the best in her kind, but damn, I love it ! Very nice sweet taste and aroma of honey, got a nice colour, but the palate is soooooo light... That’s her weakness. Cheers !

monk191 (985) - California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
A very good saison, unique. Pour a bright orange with a bubbly white head. Smells amazing and very different, extremely floral, with rose and sunflower seeds. Also honey, cloves, herbs and sesame, with fennel. Reminds us of a small French village in springtime. Taste is pure saison upfront, with more floral notes and honey in the finish, along with a crisp spiciness. Better then the regular DuPont. Had in the bottle.

bursprak (664) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2014
Tap @ Moeder Lambic. Slightly hazy golden pour with a firm head. Yeast, estery, honey, grains, sweet with some light orange juice.

Muggus69 (1231) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
750mL corked Champagne bottle Pours a hazy orange gold body with a big white foam. Aroma is decent; honey apparent, providing a flora touch to notes of cereally malts, white pepper, & light fruity esters Medium body, dry, high carbonation, well attenuated a touch of acidity, but less so than most Saisons. Cereally, husky malts upfront on the palate, some bready notes, leading onto light spices, floral honey & ripe pear-like esters. Drying finish. It’s alright, a bit underwhelming.

Holmen1 (2575) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
0,25 flaske hjemme: kort filmskum. Aroma av krydder og litt honningsødme. Smaken gir det samme inntrykket - krydder dominerer over honning, og den har en ganske tørr avslutning. Brusende munnfølelse. Slank og elegant for sin voltstyrke.

Je trouve que ça sent franchement bon! Miel mais aussi fleurs sauvages sont de la partie. L’odeur est assez pénétrante et c’est tant mieux car c’est un plaisir pour le nez! Il y a vraiment quelque chose dans cette odeur qui m’envoûte... En bouche, c’est pétillant à souhait et le corps est très bien... C’est très "vivant" comme bière. Vraiment très bon... C’est sucré mais sans tomber dans l’excès. C’est remplie de flaveurs explosives de miel et de fleurs. Wow!

Bottle. Hazy deep golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Sugary aroma of apricot, grain and peas. Sweet earthy taste with some sourness.
