Het is een goed biertje, maar honingbieren zijn er een pak beter dan dit. Maar het blijft wel lekker.

Alengrin (5163) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Honey beer since 2006, commercialized through the Proef for a hobby brewer in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Thin but stable, cream white head, warm yellow blonde colour, cloudy with deposit. Elegant aroma, clear fresh honey, vanilla, apple, pineapple, floral hops; smooth and soft palate, bit creamy, light, honeyish on a sweetish malt base, light hops in the finish. I recently heard this has been discontinued meanwhile (?).

Benzai (15321) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle @ home thanks to Countbeer. Clear honey golden color, virtually no head (bottle was opened a day before). Smell and taste malts, honey, a bit sweetish and somehow a touch of caramel or candi sugar. Average body and carbonation. Way better than expected when I saw it was a honey-beer.

29/I/14 - 33cl bottle from Dranken Marlou (Zonhoven) @ home - BB: 5/XII/14 (2014-132)

Clear orange beer, huge irregular aery fizzy head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, pretty soapy, very sugary, bit dusty, hint of citrus. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet and very sugary start, some honey, orange peel, more sugary, bit soapy. Aftertaste: unpleasant soapy bitterness, bit chemical, honey touch but not sweet any more. This must be my first De Proef gusher ever, I guess?

33cl @home . Bij openen flesje spoot het schuimbier uit het flesjes . Vlug in glas geschonken anders was flesje half leeg geweest. Teveel suiker of gist gebruikt bij hergisting op fles waarschijnlijk . Mooie geel Kleur van bier maar schuimkraag was vlug verdwenen . Smaak was te veel citrus te weinig honing . Voor een honingbier vond ik dit teleurstellend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
