RW80 (1324) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Appearance: Brown with a tiny head., not that nice looking. Aroma: Caramel, acid, Chanterelle, duck meat. Taste: Well this taste like how I could make Duck with Chantarelles in a liquid vorm and slightly sweeter. Not much bitterness, Starts sour with some candy sugar sweetness and odd earthy tones and it even has a hint of the peppery tones Chantarelles have. and some of the tones of the Duck. This is not normal how beer should taste, but I like it. medium body, soft carbonation. Very odd brew, I know the Bieís beers are crazy. But this one makes the other look like childplay. Fact is liked it, but itís not for most people.

33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Brugge Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in Keyte glas Uiterlijk: hazelnootbruin, weinig tot geen schuim Aroma en smaak: caramel, zuur, donker fruit, kruidig, zoetje erna van kandijsuiker, honing ook licht te proeven Conclusie: niet mijn smaak, maar wordt lekkerder gedurende het drinken. Zuur waar ik niet van hou wordt gecompenseerd met een zoetje. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jinroh (801) - ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
330 ml bottle. Purs hazy brown, almost no head. Looks like a good fermented kvass. Aroma has bee wax and honey, some bitter notes, alcohol. Quite nice actually. Taste is a bit sour, has honey sweetness and aftertaste leaves a strong and lingering bee wax taste. Quite nice beer, sweetness is not cloying at all, slow drinker, interesting and one of the best honey beers I have had.

Alengrin (3396) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Christmas version of Zatte Bie, with less stable, thinner, more yellowish foam, less sweet onset but more sticky sweetness in the finish, which also shows roasted bitterness absent in Zatte Bie. Otherwise pretty much the same, including the very dark red-brown colour, the honey, the chocolatey malts and the sweet spiciness.

77ships (5500) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2013
2011 Vintage. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. Reddish dark brown with a tanned head. Nose is full of the same thick brown honey as I found in the other Bie beers I have tried prior to this one, pretty odd, very thick & sweet with lots of sweet spices, touch lessened with age. Taste is lots of the Bie honey, touch lessened by age making it more approachable, pretty interesting stuff, very thick brown sugar, sweet spices, faint herbs. Bit thinned by age, I think that age has def. improved this one, still pretty quaint brew like their others, def. better this time around.
