PotjeBier (1762) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2012
2012 issue, on tap @ Beer Temple (go figure). Pale blond color, yeasty. White head. Aroma: not very strong, but typical Dupont, yeasty, bit sweet, fruity, hop-aromatic, bit grassy. Flavor is medium bitter with a malty sweet backbone and a hint of acidity. Medium bodied. Finishes (eventually) with a firm, pleasant bitterness. I like the regular SD better, but maybe I should try the bottled version .

Sizzler80 (464) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 28, 2012
Golden, cloudy amber pour with a frothy white head. Good lacing. Aromas of citrus, hops, grass, nut wheat. Tangy citrus/orange peel on the palate, very crisp and refreshing. Hops, citrus, nut, hops and wheat are equally present with a slight alcohol afterheat. Saison Dupont is refreshing and another great beer from Belgium. Beware of the 6.5% as this drop goes down easily.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
On draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a hazy light golden colour with a thick white head. A lovely aroma of pine and grassy hops before saison yeast, lemon, white pepper, caramel, banana and cloves. Similar flavours with a bitter grassy hop finish. Moderate carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced. Lovely and very drinkable.
