On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Hazy yellow pour, with a medium, creamy, white head. The aroma is hay, barnyard mustiness, pine, and some light fruitiness. Sweet and musty, with a pretty significant hop bitterness. Long, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, very astringent and velvety. Overall, this is not my favorite beer. The dry hopping added too much bitterness, which overwhelms the more subtle aspects of a good saison. Oh, well.

(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, May 21 2015) Pours very hazy pale gold with a small lingering white cap and lace. Aroma has herbal cut grass hops overlying the Dupont yeasty profile with esters giving slight banana, bready and dusty, with a wet hay farm undertone. On the palate the herbal hops are a lot more prominent. Esters are there, a bit of bubblegum and banana and some orange, but it never ends up sweet. Instead becomes dry, bitter and herbal on the slightly mineral finish. Lightish body with active carb. The palate-centric hop character surprised me but it was pleasant, and I like the dry but fruity nature of the beer. Much easier to drink than sweet estery saison. Elegant, refreshing, tasty.

0,375l fles gedeeld met ralf. Oranjegoud met een witte kraag. Citrus en gist domineren in geur en smaak. Erg lekker voor in het warme zomerzonnetje.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas & Max. 2014 bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma of fruity esters and a spicy note. Dry flavor, fruity, mildly spicy, with a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

Pours a cloudy deep gold with very big white head. Fresh, citrusy aroma with yeasty scents, a hint of nettles and herbs, a touch of bananas and fresh hoppy fragrance. Medium bodied palate, not much bitterness, good freshness again, medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I must recognize that I’m an absolute fan of Dupont, specially of its saison, surely the best example of the style worldwide. This cuvee is drier than the original, but equally balanced, elegant, complex, rustic and refreshing. Long and subtle development, with a dry finish. Very great beer, perfect for summertime. As usual in Dupont...

Bitter and zesty, an easy drinkable saison. It’s more hoppy than a standard saison, not very special, but good balanced.

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 $£

Tried in bottle. Bought in Austria at Tribaun. Colour is hazy yellow/orange. Aroma is yeast, tropical fruits, mango and grapefruit. Taste is spice, mango, grapefruits and citrus. Slight sour apple and banana after taste. Very fizzy and smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
