Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Hazy yellow orange color with big diminishing head. Sweetish, honeyish and perfumed aroma with notes of clove, orange and peach. Tart fruity, honeyish and grapefruity flavor. Surprisingly sweet for a Dupont beer. Honey masks some Dupont flavors which lowers the score. kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - MAR 9, 2008
in bottle at crescent moon extreme beerfest. yummmy honey scent - smells like baklava! dusty light yellow with frothy white head. This is a beer with a lot of oomph, not for the light-palated. Honey flavor continues and lingers. illidurit (2340) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Poured into a Duvel tulip. Color is fittingly honeyish, maybe a little paler. Head is white and extremely fizzy. No lacing or retention.
Aroma is floral and sweet but boozy. Grassy hops and honey.
Bittersweet honey flavor, with an herbal dry hoppiness. Some fleshy fruit, but mostly honey and grass.
Mouthfeel is pretty poor. The body is paper thin and delicate, and there’s way too much carbonation. It’s literally difficult to sip this beer because it’s so prickly and invariably causes burping. This knocks the drinkability down. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, 8%. Sweet aroma, wax and soap. Hazy yellow colour, sparkling. Semi-stable white head. The flavour is also sweet, quite like the aroma with a bit of tartness to balance. Nice mild carbonation and good mouthfeel. BigBeer45 (1532) - Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2008
750ml bottle with a cork that has a date of ’2000’ printed on it, so, this bottle is around eight years old, this old ale pours a slight hazy orange gold with a little amber, has a good white head that faded to a ring eventually, it is efferevescent in the glass, honey sweetness with yeast and mild floral aromas, light bread and cake fragrances, some funk and citrus aroma in the background, faint wood aroma, yeast aroma gets stronger as the ale warms and when the last of the bottle is poured, flavors of pear with orange citrus, faint bread malt taste, has a medium or more dry finish with a herb and pepper bite that expands as the ale assumes room temperature, I could feel the alcohol on my palate with just about every sip, not a warming alcohol but it has a presence, a honey sweet flavor reveals itself as the ale warm up, mouth feel is medium that thins a little as it sits, I think the carbonation might have been weak from aging when I bought the bottle, not bad at all and interesting to drink a beer that is eight years old, I will need to find a newer bottle to compare.

Bottle: Poured a orange yellow with a off white color head. Aroma is honey and citrus. The taste is sweet with honey and yet there is a dry yeast finish. Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2008
bottle, was expecting something meadish, but was pleasantly surpirised by the nice balance between the sweet honey and the dry finish. Honey, citrus, bread. Very good. bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - FEB 6, 2008
750ml corked bottle from South Bay Drug. Opened during the super bowl and drank through the boring middle quarters. Poured bright yellow with a thick white head. yeasty belgian aroma with hint of honey and spicy. flavor had delicate honey flavor with yeat and sice and some hints of fruit. finished herbaly. Like the super bowl untill the 4th quarter, this didn’t quite do it for me. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2008
This one did not work for me. First pour was gorgeous ... sunshine yellow, crystal clear, firm white head. Gorgeous. Nose honey, yeast, bread ... like a sweetened saison ... not sure what to expect. Mouthfeel average. Taste was conflicted. Bread, yeast, saison spice just did not work with floral honey. Not sure why. ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours an opaque orange-gold with billowy but dissipating clean white head; some sparse lacing. Nose is of course full of honey, yet it also has some notes of hibiscus and peach from the yeast, as well as some faint hay-like hops. More of a lemon rind citrus on the palate, with some honey malts supporting and not quite as sweet as one might expect. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes slightly dry and somewhat grassy. A nice beer.
