Unusual name, unusual beer! The “Waggle Dance” is the movement a bee performs to alert the hive to a source of nectar. The Waggle Dance beer is a beautifully balanced, sneakily seductive, golden coloured beer. it is popular both as a cask ale (Alc. 4.0% Vol.) and in 500ml bottle (Alc. 5.0% Vol.) across a wide range of beer lovers both male and female and of all (legal) drinking ages. A striking pump clip and bottle label designs ensure high awareness to Waggle Dance amongst drinkers in both the On- and Off-Trade “Amber beer with a touch of honey on the nose and palate. The sweetness is balanced by a healthy dose of hops to provide the bitterness that gives a wonderfully delicate flavour.” Pale Ale and Crystal malts and British Fuggle and Golding hops, together with South American honey, combine perfectly to create this delicious golden ale with a superb honey aroma.

A very mild & modest golden ale. Really only about texture (dry, faint minerals) rather than any obvious flavour. Only for the ticks......

zacgillbanks (5185) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Bright golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet toffee and honey flavour with a slight earthy and fruity finish. Not bad.

Subtle yet sweet to taste its a fine beer for nice salads / fish. A more preferred beer to drink.

Has to be the best tasting ale out of a 500ml bottle that ive tasted... need to find this in cask somewhere to get the real taste

Bottle, 500ml. A golden colour with almost no head. Aroma of bread, yeast and citric honey. Flavour is hoppy with a citrus and honey undertone, some biscuity malt in the finish. Moderate carbonation. Not overly sweet as beers with added honey often are. I’ve always been a fan of this and still enjoy it, especially on a hot day.

Unusual Beer, really light in colour, not much of a head but great taste. Really easy to drink with little bubbles. Great honey aftertaste.

28/I/17 - 50cl bottle @ nieuwjaarsreceptie Gentse Biervereniging - BB: 24/VII/17 (2017-82) Thanks to Mark for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale blond beer, aery irregular white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots and lots of marijuana, weed, hint of honey if only slightly. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: watery start, lots of wet grains, some cardboard, bitter, grassy hops, hint of honey. Aftertaste: grains, honey, cardboard, meh.

uckelman (799) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Wow, what an off-putting aroma. It smells a bit skunky with the sort of fake honey aroma you get in bad candy. Medium sweet. Bit of a bitter finish. Kind of nasty.

sarauckelman (540) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Clear amber with no head. Strong aroma, can smell it from a distance, and it’s not pleasant. Like skunk. Bitter with a strong flavor of honey, but not particularly nice honey. Highly carbonated. This is really pretty bad.

MetalMurphy (717) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016
bottle @ beer company (budapest) yellow colour, normal body, average caronated, sweety taste, lightly honey aroma
