COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Biere de Miel is bottle conditioned and contains only water, barley and wheat, honey, hops and yeast. It has a marvelously delicate scent of honey, balnaced by a dry palate, resulting in a beer that is both estery and refreshing.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Sampled at the 2008 Crescent Moon Extreme Beerfest. Pours hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma of a freshly baked gooseberry pie in July. This tastes like a riesling wine! has an awesome grape and honey flavor. Horridly underrated here at a 3.5 IMO.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2008
750 ml bottle, 2007 on cork. Forceful carbonation behind the cork- really popped- Pours with a quickly descending head, very thin lace on glass. Sweet honey and old earthy hops on the nose, some light ripe banana. Malt body rapidly gives way to a medium dry, hoppy, moderately lasting finish. Some clove/allspice flavor, slight residual sweetness. Almost like a triple brought down a notch, not quite like their saison stlyled beers. I really like the DuPont brewers, but this is my least favorite of their products- nicely done though.

Not being the biggest "honey" beer fan around, I know that Duponts beers are usually top-notch and was hoping the experience with this beer would be the same. This beer pours out a yellow/gold color, slight hazy with minimal rising bubbles and a 2-finger creamy head. Aroma of bready, honeyish sweet malts, with subtle floral notes. Flavors were mostly sweet malts, honey with enough bread character to notice. After about half a pint of this, I was really done drinking it. For a few sips its not bad, but no way I could finish a pint, let alone a 750ml bottle of this stuff. Its not bad, just not my style of beer.

Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, malt and fruits.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Cloudy orange body with a medium frothy white head. Sweet postage stamp and honey aroma with lots of sugar. Sweet sugary spice flavor with some postage stamp in the baackground with some honey and muscat grape hints. Medium light body with fairly high carbonation and a smooth sweet finish.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Hazy yellow orange color with big diminishing head. Sweetish, honeyish and perfumed aroma with notes of clove, orange and peach. Tart fruity, honeyish and grapefruity flavor. Surprisingly sweet for a Dupont beer. Honey masks some Dupont flavors which lowers the score.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - MAR 9, 2008
in bottle at crescent moon extreme beerfest. yummmy honey scent - smells like baklava! dusty light yellow with frothy white head. This is a beer with a lot of oomph, not for the light-palated. Honey flavor continues and lingers.

illidurit (2324) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Poured into a Duvel tulip. Color is fittingly honeyish, maybe a little paler. Head is white and extremely fizzy. No lacing or retention. Aroma is floral and sweet but boozy. Grassy hops and honey. Bittersweet honey flavor, with an herbal dry hoppiness. Some fleshy fruit, but mostly honey and grass. Mouthfeel is pretty poor. The body is paper thin and delicate, and theres way too much carbonation. Its literally difficult to sip this beer because its so prickly and invariably causes burping. This knocks the drinkability down.

MiP (15453) - Snderborg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, 8%. Sweet aroma, wax and soap. Hazy yellow colour, sparkling. Semi-stable white head. The flavour is also sweet, quite like the aroma with a bit of tartness to balance. Nice mild carbonation and good mouthfeel.
