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.

I have got this one already twice @ Kulminator in Antwerp. I don’t know correct, but on the dust to see, it kinda looks vintage. It’s one of the better honey beers, there are kinda flowties in the beer. But, the taste is very indepet, texture kinda bready, no head. But it givis a feeling like a congac or something like that, the beer isn’t sweet @ all. Maybe this is the review of a vintage bottles, but it’s very good.

Bottle from E.Leclerc Supermarket, Grasse, France. Cloudy yellow in colour with a thin white head. It has a sweet apricot and lemon flavour with honey notes on the warming fruity and spicy finish. Hides it’s very high ABV well.

jmgreenuk (7836) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle from somewhere in France. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, sweet malt. The flavour is moderate to strong sweet with a fruity, light floral hop, alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

janubio (723) - SPAIN - AUG 11, 2016
Pale hazy golden colour, with a small head that fades leaving a layer and a good compact lace. Aroma of honey, cloves, apple. Medium body, thick palate. Taste is fruity, honey is more present than in the smell, cloves, apples. Good.

Pas désagréable. Le miel est léger ce qui ne donne pas trop de sucre à la bière. Assez longue et fruitée. Peu d’amertume.

Woc (112) - BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2016
White head which disappears almost immediately. Aroma is fresh and light. Color of fresh morning urine :-D But hazy ;-) Carbonation is strong but bubbles are small and light. Alcohol content is well hidden. Not bad, nothing special. Reminds me of some of the triples.

Vignale (3367) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2016
Flaska från Beernavigator. Provade den för 6 år sedan och minns en riktigt fin honungskaraktär. Gyllengul, en del fint sediment, vitt skum som snart lägger sig. Söt doft av honung, torkad frukt, söta äpplen och belgisk jäst. En del alkoholvärme, jäst, honung, lite kryddig, välavvägd lätt jästkryddig beska. Trevlig men mindre honung än vad jag minns.

T: Match supermarket Brussels, 0,33l bottle, much better than aroma, malt, dusty, hint of honey, wet paper, woody, medium body, lively carbonated, hint of apple/citrus, interesting, first sip like unbalanced but latter much better.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2015
Ale bionda, profumata, mielosa e discretamente corposa. In bilico tra dolciastro e amarognolo offre note di caramello, malto, miele, lievito e spezie. Discreta.

Birra ad alta fermentazione che si spaccia per avere la particolarità del sapore di miele, in realtà non è così forte..risulta in poca più prevalente il sapore del lievito, comunque dolce e bevibile
