$8.95 for the 750 mL corked and caged affair from Green’s on Ponce.
Very odd that I have never bought or reviewed this since I love Saison Dupont, and I have passed over this many, many, many times. Finally snagged it.
A decent pop and a touch of gun-smoke on opening. Honey orange pour, with lots of floaties, a thin head and some lace.
A light touch of antiseptic funk in the nose.
Taste has a little funk and some sweet and sour notes. Not really any honey that I notice. Perhaps a bit in the finish but it’s very muted.
The introduction of the honey seems to make an otherwise potentially funky beer somewhat bland. “Bland” is not a very good descriptor of the beer (it’s an unfair criticism), BUT it certainly lacks real presence compared to other saisons.
Glad I tried it but I’d never choose this over the regular Dupont Saison offering
