- Inspiration: Sour Honey Saison
- Alcohol by Volume: 5% alc./vol.
The Mellifera is a veiled beer to which is added 530kg of local honey during the boiling process, which is followed by a lactic fermentation that gives it subtle acid notes. It features a nose of lemony mead aromas, with a subtle hint of honey candies. Floral notes also punctuate the palate, thus confirming unequivocally that sweetness can sometimes express itself through a colorful personality.
Hailing from times of antiquity, the symbol of sweetness and the quintessential essence of the daytime starlight exalted by flowers, honey expresses itself in this beer as a genuine cure. Fans of Abeille Gélinas, grizzly bears, people with colds, and, mostly, lovers of acidulous and thirst-quenching beers will certainly be stung with a thirst for the Mellifera.
