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.

Nice rich floral honey notes in the aroma. Hazy yellow, minimal head. Taste isn’t as exciting as the nose seems to predict, sweet belgian yeast upfront, somewhat watery finish with a bit of alcohol and some honey on the finish. No hop bitterness. Mild carbonation. Not too exciting aside from the aroma, which is quite nice.

Pours a sunny golden-amber color with a huge, froth white head. Smells of a piney, flowery grass quality, which gets enriched by slightly sweet wild honey. Offers a rich wheat aroma, which gets perfectly accentuated by sweeter cakey malts. Has a higher carbonation among a very soft mouthfeel, which turns a tad cloying during the sweet, honey defined finish. Mimics the herbal, grassy quality from the aromas in the taste, with cakey malts being more present, building up a gateway for the honey to enter the palate in a smooth, synergetic fashion. Maintains its organic, rustic character, while the honey turns quite sweet during the finish, overwhelming all other flavors while ending clean and smooth. A bit too one dimensional as for what I am expecting from Dupont, this relies too heavily on the honey to convince overall.

Echon (328) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2016
Amber. Fruity and yeasty aroma, with a fruity and malty flavour. I cannot taste the honey. Lightly sweet and refreshing taste, with a rounded bitter finish. Overall, a good saison.

Sweet, bitter beer. You really taste the honey sweetness. It’s a good beer, but not very special

Aus einer 0,75l Flasche kommt heute das Biere du Miel der Brauerei Miel. Es ist im Glas orange-gelb und trüb sowie mit enorm viel Schaum ausgestattet. Der Geschmack dieses Bieres ist erst einmal komplett neu für mich. Ich bemerke einen mittelrezenten Körper und einen Geschmack nach Getreide, Hopfen, Honig, etwas Karamell und einen schönen Malz Aroma. Das ist mega erfrischend und süffig. Die 8% bemerkt man an keiner Stelle. Lecker Lecker.

I_LUV_BEER (143) - - JUN 5, 2016
Served in a tulip from bottle. Pours hazy gold-orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is bread, yeast, hints of sour dough and some alcohol. The taste is very similar to the nose: yeast, bread, sour dough and alcohol, sour-sweet finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Pleasant enough beer but disappointed with virtual non-existence of honey nots in both the aroma and the taste.
