750ml brought back from recent trip to Belgium. Pours slightly hazy with a nice puffy head that lasts a while and sticks to the glass. Nose is somewhat similar to the regular saison, although a bit softer, with additional floral and honey elements. The taste is particularly interesting. In some ways, it is a classic saison. However, the honey flavor is very much present. As a brewer who has done meads as well, I'm impressed how they brought so much honey flavor without drying out the beer or leaving the honey unfermented and overly sweet. I'm surprised this beer isn't scored over a 4 here...it is honestly very good. A great twist on a great beer from a great brewery.

A 250ml bottle with a BB of April 2018. Gifted to me ages ago by my brother and stored in a box. Described on the label as an organic honey beer.

A: Poured into a tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich orange-amber hue with plentiful carbonation and some floating sediment. Yields a huge head of creamy white foam with good retention; this slowly reduces to a patchy surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity Belgian yeast with hints of esters, mild honey, floral sweetness, earthiness, amber malt, subtle leafiness and a twinge of funk in the background. Possibly very slightly oxidised. Nicely rounded, and has held up well.

T: Tastes of fruity yeast esters with notes of floral sweetness, mild honey, subtle dried fruit, earthiness, light grass/hay, amber malt and faint leafiness. A hint of booze in the background. Quite dry, with little bitterness to speak of.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with lively carbonation and great body. Creamy but not overly so - just right. Aftertaste of fruity yeast, honey, mild dried fruit, subtle leafiness and earthiness.

O: Satisfyingly rounded and balanced, not to mention having aged gracefully. Looks superb, while the aroma and flavour showcase Belgian yeast character, mild honey, earthiness, malt and subtle leafiness. Faint oxidation doesn't do much harm. Lovely body. Goes down a treat. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Had 3/18/17.

Pours a hazy, golden color with a one and a half inch foamy head and lots of foamy lacing. Aromas of strong honey, Belgian yeast, spices, cloves, some white grapes, light malt and wheat. A bit floral overall. The taste mostly follows along, with the yeast and malt taking the lead and the honey not as strong as the nose. Spices, cloves, white grapes, a little bread. Smooth, creamy, fairly dry and crisp, a good, lighter body, well carbonated.

Of the handful of this style that I’ve had, this is the best. Great aroma, very good flavor, good price point. Well worth a purchase.

Got a 750ml bottle from Spirit of St. Germain, La Jolla, Poured into a 25cl Duvel glass.
Look: beautiful golden color, just like honey water. White creamy head with a lot of lacing.
Smell: Very floral. There's the earthy floral, barndoor-like hop notes just as a normal saison, but one can also smell the honey notes in there too, lots of floral notes, sweet smelling honey. There's some minty smell, strangely.
Taste: Just like a saison. Quite prominent hop notes, earthy, making one think about a nice cold beer after a hot day of working in the field. The smell of hay, barndoor, wheat. However, after that came the strong honey taste, sweet, floral. This tasted just like royal jelly. Not too complex, but very enjoyable.
Feel: medium-full body, very warming from the 8% alcohol.

An excellent beer. I'll definitely get it again!

Very cloudy with a dirty gold color. Moderate head that settles to rim bubbles. A few spots for lace.

Sweet, candy smell without any notable honey notes. Reminds me most of a cherry bubblegum. (On a later smell, I do get some sourness.)

The taste is similar to the smell but without being overly sweet. Even though this is a Saison, I don't get much sourness. The body leans rich and the carbonation leans bubbly--it works overall. Short aftertaste with a touch of bittering hop. Good balance overall even with the sweet notes coming throughout the tasting.

2015 vintage.

Semi-cloudy, yellow hay colored with a respectable snow white head. Aromas of bready malts, banana, and honey Graham Crackers. So fresh and clean. Upon first sip, the spritzy mouthfeel is the first thing noticed. Spicy throughout with bitter sweetness.

Clear golden pour with finger pillow of lasting white head. Looks pretty. Aroma is both sweet honey and sour funk excellently balanced Tastes follow similarly with a bit of citrus in the mix, more malt than was discernible from the nose, and it's just really tasty. Finish is neither cloying nor dry - maybe a little bubbly for my liking. Very well done.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet

L - Pink grapefruit color, minimal foam, cloudy.

S - Honey, wet straw, citrus/strawberry.

T - Raw honey, grass, slight spice, very herbal finish.

F - Rather sticky, oily flavors, stinging carbonation. Dry finish.

Overpowering feel of clover honey, a very flavorful Biere de Garde. Almost like biting into a piece of honeycomb. Complex and interesting, quite enjoyable.
