God, this is good stuff. Where has it been hiding all my beer-drinking life?
on-tap at the Thirsty Monk, Asheville.
Appearance: Looks suspiciously like mead.
Aroma: Wildflowers, honey, and malt.
Taste: Hominy, and non-sweet honey.
Palate: PERFECT! Smooth with a bit of spritz.
Overall: Quite refreshing and thirst-quenching. The fact that it’s 8% ABV is WELL hidden. Saison-ish. The fact that it’s a Dupont creation is not surprising given the high level of quality. The fact that it’s organic makes me very happy. Amazing beer. More of this. Often. ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2008

As I recall, this was a sweet saison, brewed with honey. Nice balance of honey and hops. mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2008

Sampled at the 2008 Crescent Moon Extreme Beerfest. Pours hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma of a freshly baked gooseberry pie in July. This tastes like a riesling wine! has an awesome grape and honey flavor. Horridly underrated here at a 3.5 IMO. gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2008
750 ml bottle, 2007 on cork. Forceful carbonation behind the cork- really ’popped’- Pours with a quickly descending head, very thin lace on glass. Sweet honey and old earthy hops on the nose, some light ripe banana. Malt body rapidly gives way to a medium dry, hoppy, moderately lasting finish. Some clove/allspice flavor, slight residual sweetness. Almost like a triple brought down a notch, not quite like their saison stlyled beers. I really like the DuPont brewers, but this is my least favorite of their products- nicely done though. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Not being the biggest "honey" beer fan around, I know that Dupont’s beers are usually top-notch and was hoping the experience with this beer would be the same. This beer pours out a yellow/gold color, slight hazy with minimal rising bubbles and a 2-finger creamy head. Aroma of bready, honeyish sweet malts, with subtle floral notes. Flavors were mostly sweet malts, honey with enough bread character to notice. After about half a pint of this, I was really done drinking it. For a few sips it’s not bad, but no way I could finish a pint, let alone a 750ml bottle of this stuff. It’s not bad, just not my style of beer. saxo (18301) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2008
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, malt and fruits. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Cloudy orange body with a medium frothy white head. Sweet postage stamp and honey aroma with lots of sugar. Sweet sugary spice flavor with some postage stamp in the baackground with some honey and muscat grape hints. Medium light body with fairly high carbonation and a smooth sweet finish.
