willisread (2209) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2016
2014 bottle from Tanakaya. Classic Dupont yeasty, lemony nose that shines with a bit of honey. Piney hops come out as it warms with a tad of citrus. Above average carbonation with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Biscuit and lemon on the palate with some light citrus. Peppery finish with some light sweetness. Nice take on a new Belgian classic.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2016 Bottle from 2014 at importer. Hazy yellow colour with a stiff white head. Nose is slight green appleish sourness. Taste is creamy slight sourness with low bittetness. Dry mouthfeel decent beer but expected more sourness.

kapusil (1119) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2016
0.375l bottle, vintage 2014. Hazy golden body, huge white head. Aroma and taste of bread, orange peel, lemon zest, cheese, pepper and spicy, earthy hops. Effervescent and light medium bodied. Pretty awesome.

Cristobal37 (731) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2016
2014 bottle thanks to Kapusil! Awesome aroma of sweet lemon, basement aroma, pepper. Taste similar with nice piney hops. Drying finish. Slight honey sweetness at the end but otherwise a great saison.

daniel_machado (17) - SPAIN - DEC 26, 2015
375 ml bottle. White creamy and persistent head. Color is orange which turns opaque while pouring the yeast in the glass. The classic smell and taste of saison yeast is lowered by the dry hopping which entered new citrus flavors. Good beer but still prefer the regular Saison Dupont.

375ml systembolaget. En trevlig öl som passade utmärkt till räkorna. Lite jordiga toner i eftersmaken.

nuplastikk (5687) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2015
2014. Tap at Jacs. Unfitlered orange-tan body with a massive white head. Earthy, mellow aroma, hints of melon. Has that nice dry, refined peppery yeast tone, but with some tropical citrus tones too..reminiscent of Belgian IPA. Not really as good as the original, but still sublime, really easy and smooth on the palate. The yeast is dry, flavorful, so much more refined than a typical Saison. Pretty excellent. Mellow lemon-lime. Keeps getting better as I sip at it.

tomer (2849) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 22, 2015
At a tasting, many thanks, 2014 edition, big bubbly head, quite cloudy citrus orange color, aroma of wood, spice, yeast and some cardboard, flavor of wood, almond and vanila with a hint of fruit, and a light maltiness in the back medium bitterness. Nice but relatively simple and not too hoppy.
