Turtles (477) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
375ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, fluffy, big white head, leaves little lacing. Fresh citrus hoppy aroma, yeast, apple. Fairly high carbonated gives a fizzy mouthfeel. The taste is grassy, cloves, citrus, pepper and sweet malt.

willisread (808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya (2015 version). Pours a hazy gold with a huge rocky, white head. Wonderful nose of white grapefruit, lemon and pear with that classic duPont yeast character melding well. Wonderful combination of sweet, bitter, spicy and peppery on the palate. Super complex. Continues to shift as it warms as well too. Finish starts off fruity then leaves a nice lingering bitter and spicy finish.

Idiosynkrasie (4906) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 375ml bottle [a fugitive from the unknown realm of Bartlebierean beer dungeons, thank you very much!]. Clear (with later pouring cloudy) golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy and fruity yeasty aroma, green apple, lemon, pear and hints of green fruit parings stick out of a peach basis, spicy yeasty notes come along, hints of peppercress, pollen, a floral as well as a funky touch - all flavours appear in a mild condition and perfectly integrated. Taste is fresh and refreshing, slightly dry, slightly tart, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, the above mentioned flavours appear again with interchanging emphases in vibrating course until the finish takes a distinct peppery and slightly grassy, bitter hoppy direction. Super soft palate, soft but effectual carbonation. I would have a second one not only under torture.

SlackerMads (2082) - DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Bottle. Hazy yellow/orange with a large frothy off white head. Definately more hoppy than the original, dry flowers and green plants with some honey behind it. Same goes for flavour which is a lot more green than the regular with the yeast and malt sitting behind it. Pepper, minerals, lemon, dry grass, hay, light chalk. Keeps a fine balace with firm but not raw bitterness and lively carbonation with little sweetness. No alcohol showing. Long dry and fruity finish but also lots of green hops. Great!

mrhopsbeertalk (215) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Infected 2015 bottle, but my first taste so I’ll rate it. Nose is very lactic. I actually stopped for a minute and thought to my self, is this a brett beer or a full sour? The pour was worse. It took 6 tries to fill the glass near the brim. Finally, the taste confirmed the infection, all lactic no hops no yeast no malt... sad. Sink pour

zaf (270) - ITALY - JUL 14, 2015
avendo anche una saison dupont normale da assaggiare,posso affermare di aver notato alcune differenze..per intenderci,sono sostanzialmente le stesse birre, ma nell’aroma si avverte la differenza,con l’aggiunta di luppoli probabilmente leggeri dal punto di vista dell’intensità aromatica..anche nel gusto si avverte un finale più amaro rispetto all’originale..corpo elevato,schiuma mediamente persistente..ottima,merita davvero tanto

SB Lund, Saluhallen flaska. Torrhumlingen ger bra bett och blommigare arom. Fyllig pga alkoholhalt. En stadig sommaröl.

Martinus (3711) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Clear warm golden colour, moussy white head. Hoppy aroma, straw, resin, light sweat, some citrus. Bitter flavour, hops, Dupont yeast. Quite fizzy. Bitter finish, hops, yeast. Lovely summer beer!

JorgeLee (1427) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale golden colour, huge carbonation, ballooning white foam. Just very nice, crisp malts, sweetish balance from yeasty esters, then some herbal and slightly fruity hoppy twang. Not overly hopped, but just enough to perhaps make it more moreish than the basoc version. Nice!
