Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
On brewday, we added raw, Texas wildflower honey from Good Flow Honey Co. in Austin, Texas late in the boil. After the first several weeks of fermentation, we added more honey to the beer. Finally, the beer was 100% naturally refermented in bottles, kegs, and casks using more of the raw, Texas wildflower honey. In addition to the honey, Bière de Miel was brewed with Hill Country well water, malted barley, malted wheat, and hops. It is 5.8% alcohol by volume, 3.2 pH, has a finishing gravity of 1.003, and is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans.

4.43/5  rDev +4.7%

Poured from a bottle generously goandpickitupformebro'd by gfg0200 into a Prairie Teku glass.

Appearance: Light golden honey color, a lightly fizzy white head (like champagne) that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Tart lemons and Jester King funk, with a very prominent vanilla like sweetness that I've determined must come from the honey. Very nice.

Taste: Semi-tart, in a lemony sort of way. The honey adds a bit of a clover type flavor, but this is definitely not a sweet beer. A little bit of crackery malt comes through on the finish. This is very sessionable, I like it.

Mouthfeel: Rather light which just makes it all the more sessionable. Prickly carbonation, but not excessive.

Overall: Very good beer for the summer. Hope to get more of this at some point. Great job, once again.
