3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 2014 Version - tap @ La Capsule: A more intense flavour. Stronger, more pronounced hops. Very refreshing.___ ZBF Festival 2013 - Aroma has some pale malts and is also a bit soapy. Body is quite thin and carbonation quite high. Lightly hoppy flavour. It’s not over the top but doesn’t meet the standard of the original version 6-3-7-2-13.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was expecting more from this beer, cause in general I like Dupont beers.
But the beer is medium. Nothing special and for sure nothing super hoppy.

Sweet and sour with a dry hop finish and some caramel. However still watery at the end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1.5L magnum, sent from Glougluburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy golden with a big foamy white head. Aroma of loads of rustic qualities, subtle dry hops, and Belgian yeast – just like the regular, maybe a bit hoppier. Flavour is a little rustic, very juicy, a bit fruity, with a little citrus and banana, and Belgian yeast. Highly drinkable and a lot juicier than the classic Saison Dupont. I perhaps slightly prefer the rustic feeling of the classic, though this is still an excellent version. Recommended if you get the chance.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
