Pours a hazy gold with a full ever so slightly off white head that lasts. The nose is faint. The body is slightly fuller than the regular saison. The basic Dupont taste is there enhanced by the hops (Challenger) added bitterness. The yeast residue was brown differing from the regular Dupont that is lighter. 750 oz champagne bottle Vintage 2014

CanIHave4Beers (3524) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle Shared by myself, in a location remote of my living room... some time ago. Notes found while cleaning out my wallet.
Pours a hazy yellow with a good head & lots of lacing on the glass..

The aroma is earthy with soft notes of banana and wet limestone. It’s got some good herbal and floral notes. Pungent, a little more floral than the original, and every bit as good.

The flavor has a nice zippy bitterness and a bright fruity character. It’s fairly dry and earthy with a nice minerallity.

Would certainly buy again.

Maakun (1170) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle 2014. Hazy golden with very big fluffy white head. Lots of herbs, sweet malts, marmalade, tangerine, sour orange peel, light white pepper, light fresh wood, green raw vegetables. Light sweet at first going quickly into a medium bitter dry palate with long lasting bitter finish. Dry feel with full carbonation. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wanne (32) - - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 It pours a hazy yellow, slightly orange colour with a white dense head. A combination of grass, hay, barnyard and herbal accents compose the aroma. These reappear in the taste, but with a sharp bitterness. Unfortunately, the taste vanishes rapidly, but there is a light taste of apple that lingers around. Very good beer, but would have loved it if the taste didn’t disappear so quickly.
