Had this on tap at the brewery. Fantastic brew, very sour. I love these farmhouse ales. Wish I could get them in the bottle for less though.

Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored pour with a small, wispy, white head. The aromatic standouts are spicy and herbal phenols. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is yeasty, tangy, lightly spicy and bittersweet. Finishes mildly tart. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to errl. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a big frothy head that fades slowly to a nice film. Leaves great lacing too. Aromas are lemon peel, pears, white wine, honey, and flowers. Tastes very dry. Strong lemon peel, some bitterness, light tartness, light acidity, white wine, flowers and just a hint of barnyard. Lively carbonation but still soft on the tongue. Light to medium body. This is so crushable. Love it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Thanks!shared in Minnesota. Pours a well haze. Golden straw hue. Honey yellow glow with bigger frothy whitish head atop. Nice layer stays firm, laces well. A deeper hazy body doesn’t cut down on the pretty glow. Aromas are tart and citric, lemony and tart with clover, dabs of honey and fruit. Gentle apple, faint pear, yeastiness and some mellow earthy bitterness. Initial is firmly tart, lively lemon and citrus, lemon rind and oils with nice sour jabs, earth, yeastiness. Clover and florals, earth with gentle yeastiness. Well fermented honey makes this body kighter, clean, a bit of warmth. Touches of tartness, some warmth and earth as we hit. Bread, earth, honey jabs. Clean, a bit yeasty, that tart lemon really sets the pace throughout. Tasty, lively, tart. Good stuff. Rich citric nose, hazy glowing pour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: Hazy bright golden straw color with ample, fluffy, effervescent head which dissipates with no lace. Bright aromas of lemon, grapefruit, honey, and yeasty funk, it smells a bit wine-y. It’s tart, a bit acidic and full of esters, finishing. bread-y, mild toasty bitterness. I think the palate is a shot right down the middle: medium bodied and hold up well to room temp. The carbonation rides the line, appropriately, between crisp and creamy. The finest of my limited experiences with bier de miel, by far.
