Brasserie Dupont Biere de Miel

It's the season for saisons and I splurged on what I hoped would be a good one a few weeks ago. You can probably find this beer at most of the better beer stores but I'd only seen it a couple times so I jumped all over that when the weather started to warm up in anticipation of summer saison drinkin'.

Dupont's Biere de Miel is part of their organic line of beer, is a formidable 8% and brewed with honey. The usual properties of the saison style are stamped all throughout this beer, but it does have its own unique sweetness that I've never encountered in other saisons. I'd say I find this mostly in the aroma, as the taste is both phenolic and appears pretty dry. I drank the whole bottle, something I rarely do for bottles of this size.

I highly recommend this beer as an interesting version of a saison with a bit more kick than the standard Saison Dupont.

I wish I could find this one down here, so we substitute with Rue.
Oh, and Van Gundy looks more than a little desperate there.
