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.
