This is a wonderful beer. It has a lovely light amber color, a nice amount of carbonation, a flowery nose and a taste of honey. frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle from ’02. A gift picked up in Amsterdam at De Bier Koning.Pours a pale golden colour with a stiff white rocky head like beaten egg whites.Wonderful esthery aromas emit from my glass, apples, strawberries, vanilla, pepper, dusty cobwebbs, yeast. At fisrt sip... Oh my god it’s belgian beer heaven. Beautiful fruity yeast, honey, pepper,Quite subtly complex( read I don’t have the verbal acuity to properly describe what I’m tasting)Rich full mouthfeel, perfectly carbonated. Incerdibly drinkable, no, dangerously drinkable. The best thing I’ve tasted out of Belgium.....So far. BonVoeux (40) - Beveren-Leie, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2007

750 ml bottle in Duvel glass. Pale hazy orange with lasting white head and lace. Spicy lemon pastry aroma. Very fresh. Bready honey melon with strong spicy bittereness. Medium body (light for the abv) with effervescent carbo and nice mouthfeel. Very assertive, complex, refreshing, drinkable and strong. One the of the best beers, period. Big thanks to Stu at Shoreline Bev for the special order. Storm_Warning (84) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
I am drinking this as I am typing. Instantly after un-corking and pouring you can’t help but notice the aroma rising up to your nose. The aroma is slightly prickly with a big blend of peach, apple, hops and a very light rum note too. The sight of the beer after pouring is stunning! A thick set white head with beautiful retention, soft and smooth looking. Sitting underneath the foamy head is a lovely golden-brown brew with a classic unfiltered murkiness. The taste of this beer is the real showpiece, it’s full of floral hops, Belgian yeast, malt and that classic Dupont edge that makes their brews so unique. The beer then slows into a pleasant lasting aftertaste of apples, pears and floral summery hops. Also the alcohol is well masked in the Bons Voeux which makes it very surprising. Great carbonation and feel on the tongue and mouth as a whole.
Absolutely astounding beer which I have enjoyed a good few bottles of in the past and I hope to continue drinking this brilliant brew from Dupont. Highly recommended!

Unbelievable. Had the III in bottle, slightly aged. Easily the best saison I’ve had to date. Complex, yet incredibly subtle. Not as bright or Spicy as many saisons I’ve had. CarloOG (57) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours hazy golden with big cream head. Aroma of grass, fresh cut hay. Much more mouthfeel than I was expecting. Funky, basement flavors an boozy. Now I see why this is the "winter" saison. Remarkable beer. audinerd17 (49) - Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Love. Amazing on draft. Got the end of the keg, so a bit yeasty, but still delicious. Would love to find one of these bottles and cellar it for awhile.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 It’s a very unique and brilliant beer. It has the hoppiness and fruityness of a good Tripel and the liveliness and bitterness of champaign. Quite an extraordinary experience! alex_alkis (419) - SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
Well balanced, beautiful to look at and with a really sweet and powerful aroma. A perfect beer.
