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.

pictoman (1046) - British Columbia, - DEC 7, 2012
Poured from a 500mL bottle. Clear, pale yellow, with dissipating white head. Sour yeasty aroma with definite skunk. Grainy malt flavour with hint of honey, but tastes very watered down and disappointing.

dj (603) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2017
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. Ive 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 (760) - 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 (508) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Clear amber with no head. Strong aroma, can smell it from a distance, and its not pleasant. Like skunk. Bitter with a strong flavor of honey, but not particularly nice honey. Highly carbonated. This is really pretty bad.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
- helles Bernstein mit geringer Schaumbildung - zarte Aromen nach Citrus, Hopfen und etwas Honig - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist dann staubtrocken und nichtssagend - erst im weiteren Verlauf kommt etwas Honig hervor, allerdings muss man ihn mehr erahnen denn schmecken - der Krper bleibt durchgehend schlank bis wssrig - der Abgang wird durch die Hopfenbitternis dominiert Fazit: Eher ein Ale mit Aromanoten, denn ein Honigbier

500ml bottle from Asda. Nothing really to recommend this one, quite disinteresting throughout.

DraftDodger (1353) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2016
Copenhagen 25/8 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Comes in a clear bottle. Striped label with some bees buzzing around. Pours slightly hazy light amber with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is sweet and you can actually smell some honey. Not very strong but its there. A little caramel and waffles as well. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is sweet toffee followed by light bitterness. Sweet aftertaste - not particularly long. Pretty sweet - as could be expected from a honey beer - and quite English. Not bad - but not something Im very much into.

Orange_times (261) - UKRAINE - AUG 7, 2016
Pours in golden yellow color, clear liquid. Some light honey notes. Medium sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, low carbonization, some honey sweetness in Nothing too exciting
