Sensational! a delicious belgian with a smooth sweetness and honey flavor...there’s also a strange flavor i cant determine that gives it an almost charcoal or "oily" taste,yeah it’s odd,but works extremely well,truly unique

FatPhil (13584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007) Cloudy orange, small head. Sweet malty and nutty aroma, no honey detected. Rich woody and nutty taste, again no honey as such. Very pleasant.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle purchased at SouthBay drugs. This was a true Belgian saison with real spicy yeast and just a minor touch of honey. Actually, both in the aroma and flavor it wasn’t very apparent of the honey but at least the yeast made up for it as a spiced and strong presence.

oh6gdx (25174) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2007
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is yeast, earth, some malts, grass and balancing up honey. Flavour is honey, earth, yeast, grass and some mild herbal notes. Pleasant honeybeer. which is not sweet at all.

hotstuff (4861) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. Poured a large white head that was frothy and fizzy and mostly diminished, minimal amount of lacing, hazy, visible carbonation, and a golden hue. Nose was yeasty, honey, wheat, fruity, and spicy notes. Flavor was quite sweet, honey, wheat, hoppy, and finishes dry. Smooth, dry mouthfeel and light body. Quaffable, easy to drink, but not one that leaves me yearning for more as it is a tad too sweet tasting for my liking.

750ml - 2006 - Aroma is sweet and floral. Perfumey honey flowers, cotton candy and yeasty bubblegum. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge fluffy head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a sour finish I would expect from Dupont. Palate is clean and dry. A little too sweet, but it is a honey beer afterall.

jeg (114) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Delicious! I’m fast becoming a fan of this style. Cloudy golden body, thick persistent white head. Taste of straw, sweetness, but not exactly honey. Dry finish - very nice. My first brew from DuPont, will definitely try some more.

Cork reads "2004" Pours evenly cloudy gold with a white head that receeds quickly and leaves a thick lace on the way down. Nose carries a slight tone of yeast with a slight sweet flair. Taste is superbly smooth. It says it is made with honey, but I get very little sweetness or honey flavor on the palate except on the end. Though I find as it got warmer the taste was smoother and a touch sweeter. Mouthfeel is just about where it should be I think. Highly drinkable. The more saisons I drink, the more I like the style, and this one has helped to further my appreciation. Near the end of the bottle, I poured in ALL the sediment at the bottom to see how it would be different. I felt it was slightly sweeter and smoother than what i had drank without. Keep in mind this was also the warmest I had drank this brew.
