COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Mélissandre est une bière blonde au miel, à la mousse fine et généreuse. L’adjonction de miel se fait à la fin de la cuisson, et ce dernier sera donc fermenté, ce qui ne laissera donc que l’arôme du miel dans le produit final. Cette bière est donc moins sucrée que ses homologues belges du même type. Une version d’hiver, la Méliver, brune et plus forte, avec plu^s de miel est brassée pour la saison froide.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2010
33cl bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Switzerland. lot# LG073 Pours golden, fizzy sparly and quickly disappearing white head. aroma of honey sweetness, lots of blossom, possibly some esters, some bready malts peeking through, floral and tangy. flavors, lots of nice lingering honey meshed with some dark sugar and a light yeasty mouthfeel, some notes of caramel malts, hops add a mild bitterness to the finish. Overall the beer is sweet and I really enjoyed how the honey blends with all other ingredients, especially the sugar that directly follows every touch of the honey.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2006
Dark yellow colored, hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Big parts of yeast in the bottom of the glass. Aroma is weird with sweet and sour touch, some vinegar also with lemony touch. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is also weird with this same vinegar and glue tones, sweet and bitter lemon also there. Aftertaste lasts with sour lemon and some yeast.

Bottled.
Hazy yellow, steady cloudy white head. Very witbier-like outlook. Sweet strawberry aroma, slightly sour. Very sour, Vuuve-like beer. Almost like drinking some kind of lambic. Very difficult beer to rate, it has lemony sourness with fruity background.

oh6gdx (20295) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2006
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Sour fruits and cinegar in nose. Flavour is super bitter and sour fruits. Quite unpleasantly balanced. Quite artifical fruity notes (atleast when it comes to the lemon).
