3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 vintage Magnum bottle.
Pours darker than the regular. Less refreshing and more bitter. Still a nice beer though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nice drinkable saison, but not as good as the original Dupont. The dry hoppning seems to have added some sweetness and fruitiness. The nice caramel malts and the unique yeast qualities are however not as explicit as i would have wished for.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big bottle. Very crisp and fresh with loads (well, in comparison from the non dry hopped one) of hop aroma. Nice beer. Short rating from old tasting notes

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light cloudy gold with quick fading white head. Funky barnyard nose and some sweet apple. Sweet attack, lots of funk on the mid palate along with more apple. Finish is hoppy and a bit yeasty. Really delicious.

Bottle from five bar. Pours a light golden orange with a small white head. Taste is quite yesty with lime lemon flavours. Farmhouse Belgium yeast is huge in this one. Light bitterness. Champagne beer!

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 -------- Aug 2014------- DuPont Dry Hopping 2014: On tap at Bakujun, 1296 yen for 284ml. Served in the appropriate glassware and I am pretty sure this is the only place in town that does that... A completely opaque honey gold with a good cm of creamy off-white foam that lingers. Great aroma of saison spice + funk, sweet bread & light citrus. Nice light refreshing body - creamy with an energizing carbonation. This is simply delicious: spice, funk, some Brett, light citrus, wheat a touch of cloves in the finish. Really nice stuff, I made the right call ordering this. -------old rating Jan 2013------- generous people at Craft Beer Base shared this with me! It is quite possibly my first saison. A cloudy beer with good lacing and an inch head of foam. It started off a bit acidic and spicy, pretty good maybe a 3.25 but after warming up some sweet fruity notes started to come through and helped push up it’s score. Be sure to serve at the right temperature!
