4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 cl 2014 corked ; I would like to dedicate this rating to the recent ’Saison Dupont’ thread with its bickering offered that inspired me to buy this .. its a shame this is not from a 750ml but I could only locate a smaller bottle ... The nose is the customary rustic , hay ,grass, little dirt and funk , esters suggested are banana , green apple ,little peach , bugglegum , peppery spice. its a classic fucken nose ; In a Chimay goblet it is a dirty blond that gives good head .. Spicy , dry , tart and estery textures on the old palate ..a pretty beefy body ,firm . I dunno , I like it , it tastes quintessential . not as awesome as the regular Saison Dupont for my money though $£

37,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Yeasty and fruity with notes of citrus, spices and hints of herbs and barnyard. Moderate sweet with nice season flavours, some acidity and a fairly light bitterness. Tasty and refreshing saison, but not very hoppy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour a pale orange, with a Big ol’ fluffy white head. Aroma of grass, slight lemon, slight white peber, slight lime zest, some slight doughy notes, with hints of some fat cheese. Pretty darn refreshing, with the Classic saison notes, with some nice dry hoppyness to it.
Taste has some faint sweetness up front, with a heavy dose of bitterness and subtle sour notes. Medium bodied, with a really fizzy carbonation. Hot stuff on a warm summer day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
L’arôme léger épicé avec plein de fruits, du malt et d’y levure belge. En bouche c’est similar et sec. Haute Carbonation et plus amer que la saison Dupont normale. Une bonne version d’une classique.
