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.

Pours a short but thick white head with light yellow flowers aromas. Hazy clear gold colored body. Refreshing and aromatic in mouth with a thick cereals palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fantti (936) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Pullo @ K&S Beer & Tobacco. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin 3 sormen paksuisella pilvisellä ja kestävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on yrttisen mausteisen hiivainen, makean kuivatun hedelmäinen ja ruohoisen sekä olkisen humaloitu. Maussa on yrttisyyttä, makeampaa hedelmää, sitruunankuorta ja ruohoisuutta. Suutuntuma on suht raikas ja kuiva sekä napakasti humaloitu. Tämä on kuin saison ilman karviaista, sellainen sekoitus saisonia ja vahvaa belgiä. Hiukan monipuolisempi kuin olisi, niin olisi huippuolut.

Samuel214 (555) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Blekorange, disig med högt vitt skum. Doftar lite prutt och nyöppnat paket med Mamma Scans köttbullar (tack Mattias - trots att vi båda är vegetarianer). Annars banan, honung, jordkällare, stall och kryddiga toner. Halvstor kropp, slätare än förväntat. Lite tunn i smaken. Alkohol och kryddiga, stickiga toner. Inte en favorit från Dupont, som överlag gjort bra mycket bättre grejer.

Quick3Beers (948) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. Big funk in the nose, maybe a touch of light lemon and herbs/wildflowers. Flavor is rather sweet, still funky, again light lemon and herbs, a little boozy even though it’s not terribly big. Pretty good beer.

Tap @RCBF 2016. Slightly hazy golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, jammy, perfume, fruity, apricot and bit metallic in aroma. Fruity, bit yeasty, sweet, perfume and herbal in taste. Feels bit watery, but tastes nice. Solid brew.

Voor een biologisch biertje smaakt deze erg goed. Mooie frisse maar ook complexe smaak.

aleigator (783) - GERMANY - JUL 6, 2016
Pours a completely hazed, vibrant darker yellow, with a huge, stable white head. Smells of sour sweet lemon bonbon, Duponts spicy yeast peofile, defined by clove and peppers, and white bread dough. Has a nice flowery undertone, blending perfectly into a cakey sweetness. Drinks super smooth with a world class smoothness to it, soothing the spices coming from the yeast, while a lively carbonation during the finish is still able to cut through. Combines a nice leafy hoppiness with a crisp, lemon accompanied sweetness, balanced by a flowery infusion and the spices. Finishes even sweeter, with rock sugar among more profound spices and an effervescent carbonation, opening up the palate to an aqueous softness. Another winner from this brewery, perfect for warm summer days - while this is certainly well crafted enough to convince on its own as well. Packs a great lemon / flowery interplay, resulting in a pungent, sweet spiciness.

Palme (4122) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
On tap @ La Cerveteca. A blurry looking golden one with a huge really lacing bright white head. Smells really good actually. Superb floral and kinda sweetish. Lots of white candied sugars and blue grapes. Nice. Tastes pretty nice also. It has a good oily feeling in the mouth and it’s just above average on the bubbles. Kinda creamy in a way. More floral tones here. It’s really easy to drink. Slightly sugary without being to sweet. Grapes and grape juice. Yeah, a solid Belgian all the way. 06.08.2014

Bière d’une grande pureté. Extrêmement bien équilibrée. Amertume du houblon et alcool en subtilité. Très jolie mousse.
