A very good beer. A smooth drop. It reminds me of Brussels but should be in 1 l bottles. The logo is brand.

simont1 (294) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2014
Crisp, light, but still quite bready, a lot of belgian yeast esters; bubblegum, citrus, very dry, easy going and nice - like a better Duvel.

raoulgreco (10) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2014
Bright gold, with attractive head. Extremely crisp, especially so considering the alcohol content. Clean balanced finish showing a little bit of farmhouse (acidic) bite. A great complement to cheeses.

bartlebier (1978) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2014
75cl and 33cl bottles 2012-2013. Finally getting round to adding this enlightened drinker’s natural alternative to global (k)Leffe, finally a dry and aromatic, yet packing BE strong blonde that doesn’t coat its unsuspecting palates in cassonade graeffe and esters. Instead it approximates fruity notes (orange peel, banana, pear, peachy wheats) from the herbal-straw sides (saison peppers, grass), staying true to its saison pedigree. Delicious and polyvalent, a go-to classic I usually prefer over other classics like Duvel or Carolus fare.

Nice white head. Clear light golden. Hoppy, spicy aroma. Dry and fruity. Some barnyard. Yummy.

ogreface (1368) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 2014
Szép aranysárga, belül opálos. Habja közepes, fehér, paplanos és kitartó. Illata citrusos, gyógyfüves, szénás, belga élesztős, gyümölcsös. Íze dettó, sok gyümölccsel és a komló is szépen jelentkezik. Érezni a magasabb alkoholtartalmat, de nem zavaró. Az egész kellemesen kiegyensúlyozott, finom.

A great full taste. From tap. It doesn't taste like 8.5%. Very good blonde. Would recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (10088) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, fizzy white head, medium-long retention with good lacing. Aroma is fragrant spicy hops, sweet pear and apple esters, crisp biscuit and cracker malt with light spice notes. Flavor is sweet yeasty esters, crisp malt, light hops and bitterness, spices and a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation with a prickly sensation.

MarcoDL (2394) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
Fruity and yeasty belgian blond beer, with that nice dry body all Dupont beers have. Like a marriage between a saison and a blonde. Good one.
