That is not a foregone assumption.  Several floral source honeys can produce buttery notes in the absence of diacetyl.

I always thought macadamia nut honey was buttery.  I asked my wife to bring me some from a business trip to Hawaii.  She shows up with this little decorative jar.  Uh, thanks, but I was kinda thinking of a plain white pail of it...
I'm brewing a "big" hefe with 2.5 lbs of Hawaiian macadamia nut honey. I guess it could be called a light weizenbock.

Should be about 8.5% alcohol when done fermenting.. I'll let you know what flavors come through. Here is my recipe:
