3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled draft @ ZBF 2013. Crystal-clear pale golden with a big, creamy white head. Nose is metallic with bitter esters, bitter herbs, bitter grains and cereal,… Taste is bitter metallic, grains, cereal, quite bitter grass & hay, BE hops, bitter herbal,… Light, touch too much carb. Not my cup of tea. Too irony, too enjoyably bitter etc.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 1/19/13, Palindromic Rating # 2772!
Aroma: The nose is light, clean and enjoyable, with some floral hops and crystal malts notes too
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a small head and some light lace-work
Flavor: The taste has a good, crisp hop flavor to it, with a nice, clean malt presence as well
Palate: The body is fairly light, it has a clean and smooth feel, with a soft carbonation
I thought this was a nice example of a Pils. It is crisp and clean with a nice drinkability. There isn’t a ton more to say here, it’s a fairly simple beer that just hits on what I’m looking for in the style.

Draught @ nuetnigenough, Brussels. Rated on 18.07.2010
Aroma has grainy malt, grassy hops and some bready malt. Flavour has butter, grainy malt, grassy hops and some distant yeasty notes. Slightly sticky palate. Quite refreshing and ”German” for a Belgian pilsener.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from drankencentrale rotsaert.. Poored with very small head. Some lacing but overal very poor looks. Smell like a pils should be, taste: very average but not bad at all. I like the idea that a goot brewery like ’dupont’ makes some pils. It’s decent, I wouldn’t say no to that beer on a hot summer day. But it’s nothing compared with the saison dupont!

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium sized vast white head on top of an almost clear yellow colored beer.
Smell sweet unbalanced grains, like corn, nasty malts, cardboard, puke, glue and old herbs.
Taste is soft but also nasty: rotten fruit, malts, old hops, some malts and plant ish hops, light bitterness and a slight hint of iron.
Aftertaste tends to go to nasty bitter with some plant ish hops, malts and some herbal (fruit) tones..
Low cabo, soft (light spicy) mouthfeel, low to medium body, light creamy texture.
I hope I had a wrong bottle because Dupont is high on my list. But I am happy they make better saison than pils... Though thought they had the brewspirit to brew a good pils a well.
