3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at tap and mallet. Bronze white head. Hops and yeasty beer with evidently somewhat high in alcohol. Bubblegum yeast flavors and somewhat hot after a while. Not my favorite dupont offering. Not a fan of the yeast in this one, too bubblegummy, and cloying. Oh well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy straw colored with a medium sized frothy beige head, that when reduced left no lacing. Aroma of herbs, hay, banana, and lemon peels. Flavour of herbs, spices, lemon peels, wheat bread and a hint of alcohol. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, flavours dominated by herbs and spices, quite similar to a Saison in style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy, straw yellow liquid, big white head that quickly dissipates leaving a long lasting lid. Peppery, phenolic aroma with a little skunk, flowers and lemongrass. The taste is quite refreshing, a bit zesty and slightly vinous. The finish is dry with hints of lingering lemon peal bitterness. Medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is quite wine-like as well in an oily sort of way. Zesty and refreshing sums it up I guess, really nice.

February 16, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO. Straw, lemon, sweet aroma. Golden yellow colour. Touch of sour in both aroma and taste. Farmhouse character, lemony flavours. Nice beer. I do prefer their Saison over this one though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity and herbal smell. Herbal bitter taste with ripe fruit and a belgian yeast character. A bit boozy but besides that nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 bottle, drunk 2012 as "Posca Rustica".
Wonderful Dupont pour (I get sick of re-describing the dupont appearance, which is always perfect).
Soft herbs in the nose are neither astringent or aggressive and are wedded perfectly with light chocolate, honey and toffee. Esters brighten things, adding citrus, while dry clove and pepper phenols help keep it on the dry side.
I’ve wanted to try this beer forever and it’s a bit anticlimactic upon having it, as it’s just very well-rounded, balanced and quite subtle. Soft malts, fluffy carbonation and a slightly oily texture. Malty, but spicy as well and incredibly wine-like on the finish, thanks to all the herbs and the Dupont yeast. Delicious. Curious to see how this ages. Very reserved for an 8% abv beer.
