750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

Robe blonde légèrement ambrée. Nez puissant sur des notes fruitées et épicées sur un fond de levure. Bouche plus souple et plus épicées que la moinette classique

Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht hoppig bitter, krachtig en blijft lang hangen. Bijzonder goed.

EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 On keg in Aba-jour, Ghent. Thrilled to find a bar with Dupont beers on tap. Slightly less thrilled that this was the biologique version as I wasn’t keen on the bottled version of saison dupont. However, this is great. Bright amber, cloudy, medium lovely looking foam head. Nose is lemon, hay, cereal malt, bread, hay, sweet, little funk, baked meringue. Taste as above, also bit of dough. Really bright fresh tasty beer.

ogivlado (6473) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottled 250ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized white head, weak yeasty nose. Moderate malty, yeasty, slight grainy and fruity with notes of spices and hops near the end. Drinkable but to be honest pretty boring BSA.

2014 bottle from Safeway. The corks pops with a rush of skunk from the bottle. Thankfully, it gasses off pretty quick. The pours is very pretty with a hazy medium orange color with a massive, pillowy white head. The aroma has just a hint of skunk, but nice notes of fresh air, clementines, dusty yeast, pepper and some flowery/herbal hops. The flavor is pretty powerful with juicy oranges, pepper, mild phenols, toasted grains, hints of honey and herbs in the finish. There’s a slight alcohol hint to go along with the stronger fruit and honey notes. Highly attenuated. Frothy mouthfeel. A very fun and satisfying beer, but I prefer the lower gravity beers from Dupont.

Habanero (3345) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, funky notes, some spice traces and a little citrus. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. A nice ale indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Brewhemia (81) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2015
Beautiful hazy yellow color with a little white head. Banana and bubblegum in the aroma. Nice aroma but maybe a little too bubblegummy to my taste. Compared to the aroma the taste is very bitter and sour. Not much sweeetness. The taste doesnt have the complexity to the taste that I usually prefer in a beer. Not one I would necassarily need to have again, but I have to admit it wins a bit in on me once I got adjusted to the taste. Did not realize I had a saison on my hand.

furthur (496) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Tap, cloudy light amber, some creamy white head fades, nice lace. Aroma green apple, grass, kombucha. Taste is pale malt, light fruit, faint clove, slightly utter hops finish. Palate is very rich for a saison, carbonation subdued.
