When I was in my late teens, my parents took me to Ireland. I remember really enjoying Mead there, despite how sweet it was. My tastes have definitely changed since I am not a huge fan of super sweet drinks, but I thought this one was worth a try.
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Introducing Lune de Miel. Like all honeymoons, this divine nectar is simply unforgettable. It’s inspired from a distant era where the father of the bride would give his new son-in-law honey-flavoured beer for the first month of marriage. The honey, which completes the bottle refermentation process, is a perfect match for the hoppy bouquet with rich hints of spices, herbs and wildflowers.”
Random: This beer is aged for three years before bottling.
This beer poured with a generous, three finger, pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left a slight crown on top of the body. The body was a cloudy orange color with some floaties visible, along with moderate carbonation. The nose was quite sweet with honey and vanilla. It had a note of cookie dough as well. The taste was also very sweet. Honey and flowers made a big appearance on this beer. There was also a slight peppery note to it. The beer was on the heavier side with light carbonation. The finish was sticky and sweet with honey. I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. It was just a bit too sweet for me. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.
