Bière De Miel Biologique

$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 gunsmoke on opening. Honey oranged pour with lots of floaties, a thin head and some lace.
A light touch of antisceptic 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 criticsm), 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.
