Alusmamuts (1014) - LATVIA - JUN 7, 2015
Amber with small off white head. Minimal bitterness mixed with some sourness and honey sweetness. And waterness - too much, otherwise could be very good.

At Delirium Vilage. Specific honey taste and aroma. Therefore, a very specific one.

kraddel (4563) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2015
Pours clear, amberblonde, good white head. Smell is fithy, sweat and honey. Yuck ! Taste is equally bad. Like honey has gone expired and started to rot. I was not capable of taking a second sip.... What the hell was the brewer thinking when this was finished? he must have known this was awefull...

Birra a trazione anteriore. Birra al miele dal colore giallo oro scuro e dalla schiuma persistente. Ottima la presentazione visivamente ed olfattivamente, profuma di miele anche se lievemente acido, peccato che perda un po’ per via del carattere della birra troppo evanescente e con poco corpo. Odore equilibrato, da migliorare il retrogusto ma comunque valida.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Nose of yeast, honey, and wine-infused sourish fruit. Hazy orange/honey color, thin head. Lightly tart fruit, sourish pickle-like mid palate. Flavor diminish quickly. Thin and lightly dry finish. Thin and tangy. Hmm... (drink-by date was a month ago) whatever flavors were there... ain’t any longer. Disappointing.

Alengrin (3235) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Saison-like honey beer for Les 4 Pavés. Very firm, rocky, off-white, sticky, stable head, colour soft peach blonde with yellow hue, hazy. Versatile aroma, unusual, with honey of course, but also caramel, ginger, earth, tomato, dry white wine, hops, lemon, mint. Fruity, sweetish taste, soft mouthfeel, honey subtly dressed over the palate but not too dominant and balanced by a ’wild’ sourishness, spicy yeastiness and dry, hoppy finish. Honey beers should not be cloyingly sweet in spite of what the name suggests, and this is a very fine example in my personal view - as are other Wallonian honey beers like Saint-Monon au Miel or (obviously) Dupont Bière de Miel.

In een klein winkeltje in Dinant gekocht. Niet slecht, maar helemaal niets speciaals aan dit bier.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2014
25 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 12/2015. Dark amber touch brown & red appearance with a bubbly white head only on the sides. Nose is thick synthetic air refresher honey, odd & frankly off-putting, strange fare. Taste is thick yeast, synthetic honey, air refresher, caramel, strange synthetic feel, sugar, strange and I am not a bit funny. Too many of these honey beers taste like strange synthetic fare. I suppose getting a beer to taste of NZ honey is impossible given that all the sugar etc. would ferment out so we get this weird stuff.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3058) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 18, 2014
250ml bottle from Sugaya, served in a trappist glass. 7.5% Served in a chalice, a cloudy honey brown with a thin off-white head. The aroma is a potent fruity wine like smell somewhat sour but I guess it does have slightly honey sweetness to it. It has a smooth mouthfeel but the body is a bit too light. The taste is very fruity, sweet with a zesty effervescent light carbonation. My wife liked it, I did too - this is a sweet tasty beer not the most complex but very solid with nothing to betray the 7.5% alcohol punch. My biggest criticism would be the light body but that is just quibbling...

25/I/14 - 75cl bottle @ home - BBE: 2016 (2014-126) Thanks to Dries for sharing the bottle!

Little sloudy dark orange beer, irregular off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of honey, very floral kind of honey, bit sweet. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of honey, yet not too sweet, bit floral, sour touch, bitter hops. Aftertaste: some citrus, creamy floral honey, bitter hops. Decent honey beer, not as sweet as one would fear.
