Amber. Foam didn’t last very long. Some honey in both taste and smell. Very average and not convincing t all.

23/I/15 - 33cl bottle from Amon Tchiniss (Malmédy) @ "I need to get rid of my Belgian ticks" tasting - BB: XII/2016 (2015-84)

Clear dark orange beer, small beige creamy head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, bit of alcohol, some overripe banana, cloves, peaches. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish, overripe banana, funky. Aftertaste: green apples, sourish, bit weird, funky, infected?

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2015
The newer version of this honey beer. Thick, sticky, moussy, off-white head, hazy orange blonde colour approaching amber, lots of floating yeast bits. Big honey in the nose, peach, caramel, honey, pineapple, hint of tomato, vanilla, apple sauce, bread. Sweet and estery onset, residual honey sweetness, bready, soft mouthfeel, sugary, caramelly malts, very yeasty with sourish touch drying up a bit in the finish, where some herbal hops appear, though insufficiently to balance out the honey sweetness. Acceptable but I liked the original version better.

Benzai (9778) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ Tim needs to get rid of his ticks tasting. Clear rusty orange color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, herbs or spices, plant - like, sweetish, weird. Perhaps this is all caused by the honey. Weird stuff, don’t like it. Average to medium body and firm carbonation. Not good.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bruine kleur met weinig schuim. Ruikt fruitig, zuur. Smaakt lekker, tamelijk zuur. Honing heb ik er niet in kunnen ontdekken, maar toch een prima bier.

This honey beer is not too sweet but leaves you licking your lips for a while after the sipping. With an amber color and a nice white head.

Pinball (11103) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012
bottle at home, from beer planet. "caramelly" brown, very small bubbly film head. quite a lot of carbonation though. aroma of fruits, apple, malts, faint tart note, quite fruity, sort of like a citrussy fruity tripel. flavor is citrussy, spicy sourish, i think it is infected, but perhaps the sourish, lemoney, citrussy flavor is intended. malts. syrup, honey, cake spices (kardemomme). Pretty strange, but drinkable if you’re into lemony sourish stuff.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2011
bouteille 33cl et encore une fois, pas de date de consommation. Cuivre, col beige. Arôme fait bien ressortir le miel et une note herbacée que l’on retrouve souvent dans un miel organique. Palais est fruité; note de pêche, mielleux avec toujours ce bon côté miel frais donnant des notes de fleurs, le tout se suit par un profile malté léger. L’alcool se marie parfaitement avec le miel qui par moment peut couvrir le palais, et est balancé par les 8.5% pour en faire une bonne bière de dégustation. Une légère amertume florale se dégage sur la fin.
