Floris Honey 
Posted: 31 August 2015  Beer Republic 3.0 
Floris Honey from Belgium We need to taste the honey tones but we don't need those tones to be the equivalent of a sugar high.  If I wanted something this sweet with the word honey in it, I'd opt for Post Honeycomb cereal.
Avg price/liter: USD 9.70   ABV %: 3.0  Type: Lambic-Fruit  Belgium 
       


If you're going to manufacture a chocolate beer, like Floris has, why not take a spin at a honey beer, too?  Floris already thought of it.    

Although this isn't a fruit beer, per se (and nor is the chocolate beer), we might as well label as such because the idea behind these two beers is the same as Floris Strawberry or Passion Fruit or any of their other fruit varieties.  

Floris Honey is made with 15% honey.   I can't say the quality of the honey they're using, but the final product, like the Floris Chocolate, tasted like artificially flavored liquid honey.  I am sure you know the type of honey I am talking about.  This is the cheaper honey you see hawked in your supermarket, adulterated with corn or sugar syrup, additives, and food coloring.    Natural honey isn't sticky.  Natural honey will harden bread once it's spread upon it. 

Floris will probably  maintain they use all natural honey.  I won't argue that point.  But if they're going to go ahead and add a s--tload of sugar on top of that for the final sweet-tasting brew, it might as well be artificial honey.      

Floris makes the same mistake with Floris Honey as they did with Floris Chocolate.  We need to taste the honey tones but we don't need those tones to be the equivalent of a sugar high.  If I wanted something this sweet with the word honey in it, I'd opt for Post Honeycomb cereal.  Now that's addictive.
