COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A honey beer that never lets you forget the fact. Although there is only a slight trace of it in the nose the intensity of the honey in the palate may be a bit much for some people. This is an accomplished beer that oozes quality yet retains a small brewery taste. Also sold as Berenbier in Flanders.

kraddel (4413) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2015
Pours clear blonde, small and instant fading white head. Smell is bit sweet. Honey, but not in a good way , on top of some malts. Taste is bit bitter, with again a honey sidenote. Not in a thick, creamy mouthfeel kinda way, more like in a sweetened tripel. starts of like an intense, yet one dimensionnal tripel, than the honey kicks in giving it a sweet sidetone. All remains very simple though. Oh, did I mention overcarbonation? rather thin mouthfeel. Not bad, no hate to this beer. Yet questions do rise by who would drink this cause they really dig it more than any other beer ? I can picture no-one. A very very common taste with some honey added...

Well, it smells like an old wet towel forgotten in a back for weeks, and... It kind of taste what it smells. Luckily, the taste is not strong, so after 5 seconds you can swallow water with a far away aftertaste instead of the initial taste.

Ulysse (269) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Aroma of tinned corn liquid. Unpleasant aroma but still present. Watered down taste of the very same aroma.

Arôme de vieux maïs, mais très vieux le maïs. On ne sent pas l’alcool. Ça goûte le vieux, mais heureusement le goût n’est pas très prononcée.

Alusmamuts (759) - LATVIA - FEB 22, 2015
Golden hazy with small white head. Very interesting taste, which is difficult to describe. Some kind of bitter and sweet mix with malty notes and strong presence if yeast. Neither like or dislike, but found it interesting.

Deu (867) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Light amber coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium diminishing. Aroma is sweet, sweet bread and sugars. Flavor is heavy sweet, some nice hoppy notes, perhaps yeast too. Creamy, syrupy texture.

0,33L bottle (as a gift). Pours hazy golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, fruits, apples, maize and some sourness. Flavor is sweet, sour, fruits, apples and a little bit dirt. Overall: ok-ish.

Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Hazy golden beer, off-white head. Nose is honey, malt, yeast, some mild wet cardboard. Flavor is honey, malt yeast, fruity notes, herbal hops and more honey in the finish. Odd mouthfeel - syrupy to oily to watery.

Boxereddy (193) - BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2014
Wazig blond bier met flink wat gistpartikels. Schuimt rijkelijk en geeft een snelzakkende witte schuimkraag. Zoetig in de neus met lichte honingtoets. Licht mondgevoel met fruitige toets. Zachte kruidige afdronk met hoppige bitterheid. Een verrassend honingbier!
