2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a golden clear beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells like honey obvious. Not that much aromas. Taste is very flat. Honey taste and very sweet of course. Dont like it. Very bad palate. Almost no carbo, small to medium body. Sticky texture. Dont like honey beers and this is a bad honey beer.
Bottle shared with my wife. Clear dark golden with a medium white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet. Honey, caramel and malts. Mediocre. paulvanpelt (649) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2017
Bleekgeel bier met kleine witte kraag die snel verdwijnt. Zoet en prikkelend bij de eerste slok. Aroma van honing, gras en brood. Fris, maar wel wat saai. Te weinig bitter. JefVerstraete (3513) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2016
Bottle. Very clear colour, white foam disappears quickly. Sweet nose of honey with bitter notes. Sweet and bitter, easy drinkable. Not very impressive but not bad. vinivini (2661) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 26, 2015

Pours greenish golden with little head.
Aroma is low: honey, bread.
Starts sweetish and sizzling, thin, bearly bitter.

It has been a long time since I tasted something from this brewery so let’s try this organic honey lager... Found in a Bioplanet store in Destelbergen. Medium thick, creamy, snow white head retaining quite well, over a deep golden beer, clear with a few tiny protein flakes here and there, calmly sparkling. Strange aroma of indeed a lot of sweet honey, but also cheese spread, buttermilk (diacetyl?), grass, ’Haagse hopjes’ if that rings a bell, iron, green apple, perhaps a hint of plastic. Rounded, soft onset with fairly low carbonation, sweet in a dull kind of way, clearly the honey speaking, but low fermentation fruitiness - unsurprisingly, considering this is a lager, of course. A sourish grainy accent comes up and along with a slightly bready pale malt sweetishness, dominates the middle phase, where a metallic hint also plays; the honey sweetness stays, but does not become really cloying or overpowering at any point. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit buttery. A soft and faint grassy hop bitterishness also appears late in the finish, fading away as quickly as it came; a weak honeyish sweetness is all what is left a few second after swallowing. Not a complete failure, but it is clear that honey works better in ales. If I were a pessimist, I’d say this is just another bland lager pimped with some extra ingredient and in that sense related to the chili lagers, tequila lagers and so forth, but it is quite ’honest’ and I cannot say it put me off as much as I had feared.

Een enorm lichtgeel bier met een schuimige kraag. Een pilsachtig bitter aroma op de achtergrond. De smaak is lichtjes zoet wat overgaat in een mierzoete nasmaak.
A very, light yellow beer with a fluffy layer of foam. A pilsener-bitter aroma on the background. It tastes somewhat sweet which moves on into a very, to sweet aftertaste. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Poured light amber with a small white head. Aroma of honey and caramel malt. Light body, flavour is sweet honey, grainy malt. Average. Erzengel (9079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
30cl bottle, found in Wuppertal on the Christmas-Market. Best before 12.2015. Malzig-milder Antrunk. Frisch-malzig, dunkelmalzige Anklänge. Der Hauptteil ist mild-weich, schön malzig mit einer tollen Honignote, die nicht zu süß und auch nicht zu penetrant wirkt. Mild-weich mit leichter Süße. Schön ausgewogen. Der Nachgeschmack ist ein tolles dunkles Honigbonbon, ohne zu süß zu sein. Leicht herb im Nachgeschmack, mild-weich, malzig-trocken mit einer leichten Waldhonigsüße, die aber angenehm im Nachgeschmack auf der Zunge bleibt. RW80 (2629) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Sehr tolle Kombination. Nicht penetrant-süß, schön stimmig, toll! This is how the combination of beer and honey has to be! Not too sweet, nice malty, great!
Appearance:Clear light amber, poor head, no lacing
Taste: Honey, light floral hints, faint light metallic notes.
thin body, average carbonation
Problem is not the honey, but the basic beer. which is a bad ager which can not compensate the honey sweetness making the thing artificial.
I I want a honey Ibeer will get the Twents Honing Tripel, which is far more interresting.and is actually quite good.
