Jester King Brewery Biere de Miel

What the brewers say

“Our Bière de Miel is a dry, well attenuated, unspiced farmhouse ale brewed, fermented, and bottle conditioned with raw Texas wildflower honey. Naturally occurring wild yeast and bacteria impart a sense of place in this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100 percent bottle-conditioned beer.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light citrus and pineapple fruity Brett funk. A wonderfully curious blend of sweet honey floral notes. Brett funk and fruitiness and expected saison estery fruitiness.”

Flavor: “A lemon acidity hits up front and carries throughout with a lemon sweetness and hints of orange, as well as a bitterness in the back. A spicy honey flavor up front that’s quickly overshadowed by a prominent tartness. Remarkably dry for the amount of honey flavor that is retained.”

Overall: “Lemon and pineapple funk define this beer. Some light peppery complexity in the background. Tart and refreshing overall with great personality. A bright beer full of unique flavors that all manage to work wonderfully together, with the honey flavors able to peek out and complement the Brett.”
