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.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Bottle, 33cl, at home. Bought at the Mitra. Orange color with initially a frothy head. First sip is okay: honey and some sweetener and metal. After that, the hops kick in. Tastes of Strepsils, honey but mostly bitter hops. Only the bitterness lingers. Even when paired with food, all I taste is bitterness. After eating some old bread to cleanse my taste buds a bit, the sweetness returns (but only a bit) and the malts show themselves. A bit watery. Complex beer. Disappointing, I would not buy this again (although the label is beautifully designed).

Dark blond colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have strong honey notes. However it's not too sweet. Clean finish.

Bottle 33cl. from a local Deen supermarket, poured into a shaker. Hazy pale amber, tall frothy off-white head, half-way lasting, heavy lacing; aroma sweet malts, honey, peach, biscuit, yeast, bit butter; fizzy taste, medium sweet and bitter, malty, light honey, biscuit, candy sugar, yeast, spicy notes, alcoholic touch; sweetbitter aftertaste, bit fruity, spicy notes; medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation; low on honey (blessing in disguise?) but quite a decent pale ale.

opalescent orange to amber colour, huge, dense creamy yellowish-bright beige-ish off-white head; aroma of linden honey, biscuit, grape, candy sugar and grains; taste of linden honey, grape, biscuit, moderate bitterness of grape seed and candy sugar; enjoyable Belgian ale

Dark orange pour with small off-white head. Very faint nose; I don’t understand the long lists of elements that some people seem to smell, I don’t. Can recognize the honey in the taste though; also lasting in aftertaste. But this is not their best beer...

Bijl (838) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Oranje/Amber/donkergeel van kleur, troebel met een witte volle schuimkraag. Aroma is honingzoet, moutig en iets kruidig/scherp.
Smaak: Fruitig, bloemen, broodachtig en moutig, karamel, licht honing, en kruidig. Aardig wat alcohol warmte en een lichte eindbitter.
CO2 is medium, redelijke body, mondgevoel is romig zacht. In de afdronk iets zoet en plakkerig. Ik vind het een prima biertje... niet mierzoet.... mooi in balans.

BruderTuck (18) - Bremerhaven, Bremen, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2016
Honiggelbe Farbe auch im Schaum. leicht fruchtig in der Nase, leichter honig.
Ungewöhnlicher Geschmack. Herbe honignote die nicht so harmonisch ist. Nicht sehr süß. Schmeckt aber sonst recht belgisch. Die honignote bleibt lange an der Zunge.

markschiedon (692) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2016
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A nice, sweet aroma. The unclear orange beer has a medium white head. In the taste some honey, but not overwhelming. Low carbonated.

SNAB’s self-proclaimed "king of honey beers", bottle from a Deen supermarket. Medium thick, egg-white, moussy head leaving patches of lacing on the glass, colour a deep and warm, pure coppery amber, clear but turning light hazy in the end. Aroma of acacia honey indeed, quite dominant but leaving enough room for other suggestions of sandwiches, gingerbread, faint strawberry, grass, iron but in a natural way to the point where it becomes a bit rosehip-like, apple cake, orange liqueur, dry earth, soap, overripe red tomato, some dried kitchen herbs, red apple, jute, toasted bread and even a very weak hint of cooked cabbage (DMS) lurking somewhere in the background. Spritzy onset of canned apricot, raisin and banana sweetness plus a soft, background redcurrant sourishness, strongish carbo, very supple, slick and even slightly metallic caramelly and lightly nutty to even slightly toasted malt sweetness in the middle superseded by honey sweetness and subtle spicy hints, bitterish in the end with ongoing toasted malt bittersweetness, soft herbal hop bitterishness, some faint spicy phenols, warming liqueurish alcohol and, expectedly, honey sweetness, unmistakable yet still managing not to overpower all the rest, though it does stick to the throat a little bit; the toasted malt bitterishness and the hops try to counter this sweetness, but fail in the end. Belgian style sweet honey tripel, tasty but still a tad too sweet; I can, however, appreciate the fact that the people of SNAB have applied artisanal honey in this, but I think adding it in an earlier stage of brewing would have been a better idea. Too sweet still, to my palate at least; needs more body and more ’end bitterness’ to finish off the initial honey sweetness.
