JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2006
Golden beer with slight orange shine; small whitish head. Flowers, honey, spices, rosewater, almonds. All very aromatic, but predicting a lot of sweetness. But in truth, the taste is much less sweet than expected. Apart from the rosewater flavour, the main sweetness is essentialy pale malts, maybe with some almondy hints. No trace of honey flavour, probably very well attenuated. At the (good) edge of cloying, could do with some beefing up in body. Good, sweet even when not at all honeyish. I like this.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2006
Honey blonde color, cloudy. Honey and lemon in the aroma. Citric flavor with coreander and traces of honey. Fairly dry, well attenuated. Prickly mouthfeel. Just a bit thin, but with a fruity aftertaste. Pleasant beer with enough bite.

Het is een goed biertje, maar honingbieren zijn er een pak beter dan dit. Maar het blijft wel lekker.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2013
Sample @ Brugge Bierfest ’13. Dorée claire, col beige. Arôme est houblonné, léger le tout gardant un bouquet malté plus en avant avec une pointe biologique mielleuse en rétro-nasal. Palais est léger et houblonné, pointe de malt caramel, léger touche d’épice et une fine douceur du miel. On reste dans le style très belge avec ici cet ajout de miel et coriandre qui aident cette dernière à sortir de l’ennui.
