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.

Not being the biggest "honey" beer fan around, I know that Dupont’s 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 it’s not bad, but no way I could finish a pint, let alone a 750ml bottle of this stuff. It’s 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.

3.5
Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, 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.

3.2
illidurit (2347) - 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 there’s way too much carbonation. It’s literally difficult to sip this beer because it’s so prickly and invariably causes burping. This knocks the drinkability down.

MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, 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.

BigBeer45 (1553) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2008
750ml bottle with a cork that has a date of ’2000’ printed on it, so, this bottle is around eight years old, this old ale pours a slight hazy orange gold with a little amber, has a good white head that faded to a ring eventually, it is efferevescent in the glass, honey sweetness with yeast and mild floral aromas, light bread and cake fragrances, some funk and citrus aroma in the background, faint wood aroma, yeast aroma gets stronger as the ale warms and when the last of the bottle is poured, flavors of pear with orange citrus, faint bread malt taste, has a medium or more dry finish with a herb and pepper bite that expands as the ale assumes room temperature, I could feel the alcohol on my palate with just about every sip, not a warming alcohol but it has a presence, a honey sweet flavor reveals itself as the ale warm up, mouth feel is medium that thins a little as it sits, I think the carbonation might have been weak from aging when I bought the bottle, not bad at all and interesting to drink a beer that is eight years old, I will need to find a newer bottle to compare.

3.4
SHIG (4963) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle: Poured a orange yellow with a off white color head. Aroma is honey and citrus. The taste is sweet with honey and yet there is a dry yeast finish.

3.8
Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2008
bottle, was expecting something meadish, but was pleasantly surpirised by the nice balance between the sweet honey and the dry finish. Honey, citrus, bread. Very good.
