Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ThatsThatDude on 06-01-2014

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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2.

Appearance - Very light yellow body. Clear with a big head and lots of lacing. Great retention.

Smell - Lots of honey. Doesn't smell that sweet. Very yeasty. Slightly phenolic.

Taste - Less intense on the honey. Much stronger yeast flavors. Very mild acidity, but nothing I'd call sour or even tart. Sharp fruity yeast flavors.

Mouthfeel - Very light. Well carbonated.

Overall - Not a very exciting or flavorful beer.
