I am surprised that this beer doesn’t have a higher rating. This has to be one of my favourite saisons. It has a nice bright yellow colouring. It has that typical saison flavour, both spicy and fruity, without being too tart or too peppery. While I had this in January and February, I can imagine it being even more refreshing in the summertime. Great beer!

If you like Saison Dupont, then you would absolutely like this beer. A perfect seasonal beer with a solid freshness, especially when drunk at the brewery.
