Koning Honing is een levend, niet gepasteuriseerd, bovengistend bier. Koning Honing onderscheidt zich van andere honingbieren door de toepassing van de bijzondere Siciliaanse oranjebloesemhoning en Canadese klaverhoning. Om de honingsmaak volledig tot uiting te laten komen wordt de honing pas na de hoofdgisting aan het brouwsel toegevoegd. Canadese klaverhoning heeft een ongelooflijk volle en rijke boter/vanille geur en smaak. In tegenstelling tot de algemene verwachting is Koning Honing niet mierzoet, plakkerig of zwaar. Heb je zin in een bier met meer karakter en smaak dan een Blond(e) maar vind je dat Tripels te zwaar vallen, neem dan iets BIJzonders, neem een Koning Honing. De Koning onder de honingbieren! Water, Caravienne-, Pils- en Münchenermout, Oranjebloesem- en Klaverhoning, Saaz hopkorrels, een specerij en bovengist.

Heldere donker koperen kleur met een aardige kraag. Ruikt honing, zoetig, iets fruit. Smaakt honing, licht zoetig, en iets bitter in de afdronk.

Bottle bought at Deen supermarket in Holland. It pours a beautiful clear dark red amber with a lightly tanned head. It smells indeed of a lot of sweet honey and malt, doughy bread, wheat. There was a slight tinge of metal which faded away together with the head (Iron sulfate? I hope not...) The first taste is of beautiful sweet honey and malt, very faint hint of fruity tones, with a very sharp peppery effect in the mouth from the alcohol, it even burns in the throat... Not well masked I’d say... Very little hop to be found, a nice thin edge of citric acid in the aftertaste. Silty on the back of the tongue. Overall it’s not a bad honeybeer, pity of the burning alcohol, and for me the total lack of any hopbitterness, it’s presence only given away by the slightly dry mouthfeel, could be in for some improvement. The mouthfeel is nice and oily enough with a gentle finish were it not for the burning alcohol. In my humble opinion this could be a great honeybeer if it could find more balance by adding a tat more hopbitterness to counter the absolutely lovely honey, a little less silt in the aftertaste, and a bit more fruit wouldn’t go amiss if it could come from the hops... It’s interesting ’though, and I will drink it again, only to hope for some evolution!

Oranje onhelder bier met een gebroken wit schuim kraag. Ruikt honing, hoppig en mout. Smaakt erg zoet. Honing en mout. Iets te veel carbo.

Leighton (15331) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle shared in London with Lyoli - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours lightly hazy gold-brown with a creamy off-white head. The aroma holds toasty biscuits, bread, berries, Belgian yeast. Medium sweet flavor with plenty of bready malts, some toffee, banana, bubblegum, faint alcohol, toasted biscuits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, some chewy malts, more bread and toffee, candi sugar, minimal bitterness. Not bad overall, although there’s minimal honey character.

Cluniac (73) - - JAN 25, 2015
Amber color. Very thin head and small carbonation. Aroma is honey sweetness, with some light malt. Taste is quite hoppy and honestly flat for me- bot much going on. Palate is spicy and aftertaste quite dry. Overall a drinkable ale, but nothing special and not really my style.
