2.9/5  rDev -25.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Hazy orange color. Medicine nose (cough syrup) Thick lasting white head. Alot of clove and honey sweetness to the taste as well as big medicinal notes (pepto bismal) and a slight hop bitterness to the finish. Medium to full mouth. Too medicinal and astringent for my taste.. not my thing I guess (this is why drinability is so low).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Lots of carbonation is apparent as the cork was launched across the room when opened. Pours a lovely bright hazy golden color with a tall, thick, and creamy white head that dissipates into a good amount of lightly sticky lace. Nose is quite floral with notes of perfume, honeysuckle, and roses. Medium in body with a very crisp and spritzy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet and fruity up front with notes of fresh honey, apricots, and lemon. Flavors then turn towards the spicy side with notes of yeast, fresh mint, and a touch of clove. Mild hop bitterness in the end leaves a dry finish with a bit of a minty aftertaste. A very nice brew, though not as good as the other Brasserie Dupont brews I’ve had.

This beer popped loudly and shot the cork across the room. The yellow beer was very cloudy and had a great long lasting head. The aroma of honey and malt dominated the nose. The taste of honey was strong but the beer was not overly sweet. The three of us drinking the beer agreed that the honey taste was there but honey sweetness was not. The beer was sparkling and was very drinkable.

Big 750 ml green bottle. Shape of a champagne bottle. Label is faded yellow with scene of barrells sitting in a field with a bee hive sitting on top of it. "Ale Flavored with Honey" clearly labeled as well.
Cloudly golden color. Rocky white head. Smell is very much like a belgian triple, sublte citrus fruits, and rich yeasty goodness. Just a hint of honey aromas. Lots of spicy fruit flavor right up front, apricots mostly. Very much like a belgian triple. Citrus tartness is nicely done. Honey taste kicks in at the end, and is done right. Not overpowering. Just a hint. Sweetness lingers. Not sticky though. The bottom of the glass yeiled some murky yeast sediment. Hot alcohol presence also notable on the finish. Medium bodied, but highly carbonated. Paired with grilled chicken, brown rice and green beans. Very good. Worth a try.

This beer has a touch of honey in it during fermentation and that is the signature brew from this brewery - It was famous for it after it opened in 1844. This beer is exceptionally good - not great but definitely good. Fruity nose thick creamy like head. Cloudy golden white colour. I really enjoyed this one. The hops are on the mild side for my palate but still good. The maltiness is contrasted by the sharpness of fermented honey. I highly recommend giving this one a try. There is a sweet alcohol scent to it in the head as well that gives that combined with the yeast smell gives a fruity aroma.

3.08/5  rDev -21%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Golden in hue w/ a light haze. The lively, effervescent carbonation supports a fluffy, well retained ivory white head. A waft of sweet nectar and distinctly floral honey upfront in aroma along with notes of perfume, rose petals and an odd herbal hint of dried oregano. Mild clove winds its way through, lending a unique spicy and floral melanage aromawise. Initial snap of crisp honey like sweetness is ceded by light must and mellow tart fruitiness. Herbal notes of dried oregano and perhaps rosemary continue from the aroma, and unfortunately combine with the underlying clove to form a slightly rubbery, medicinal impression. Hop bitterness is meager, but does offset malt sweetness enough to lend a fairly balanced overall profile. Fruitiness is citrusy, being comprised of light lemony tartness. Lightly bodied and well attenuated, w/ a crisp, lightly spritzy mouthfeel that belies the relative strength. Finishes dry, w/ that phenolic and herbal mix lingering on the palate. Biere de Miel is a very odd brew. It's certainly quite flavorful and unique, but that rubbery / herbal flavor creeps up in intensity and becomes distracting. Fortunately, there is sufficient complexity to prevent that flavor from being overbearing. Surprisingly light on the palate for the ABV. Bottled in 2000.

[750 mL bottle, 2000]

Nice golden colored brew, with plenty of CO2 apparent in the body. A bit hazy, but I poured in a bit of the sediment (I usually wait and try a beer with the 'dregs' later). Fluffy white head quickly fades to a thin lace. Smells of spices, fruit, and honey. Aroma is almost candy-like in it's spicy sweetness. Flavor is quite good. It's spicy, with a mild fruitiness with a bit of yeast flavor thrown in. Finishes fairly dry, with noticeable alcohol and a slightly acidic tang. A bit thin and watery on the tongue, but overall a pretty good brew. Could be a good conversion brew for some wine drinkers I know.

A honey beer with a nice golden color with an earthy/spicy aroma. Nice tight white head that leaves a nice lace in the glass. Has a wonderful mouthfeel that has a dry, minty finish, with almost an "apricot" flavor. This beer is a difinately worth trying, especially if you like tripels. I've had two vintages, 2000 and 2001. I have to say, the 2000 was the nicer of the two, refining the fruitiness of the beer and mellowing the carbonation out a bit.
