3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours an effervescent and cloudy golden yellow with two fingers of tight white head. Very very nice aroma, lots of ephemeral and floral notes with a full and funky farmhouse character. Very earthy and bready notes in the aroma and flavor. Tastes ’yeastier’ than the usual version. Very dry and peppery finish. Super peppery/spicy on the finish and at the back of the mouth. Wonderful summer brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Good thin white head, leaves plenty lace. Nice nose - some citrus, plenty ester. Medium-plus body. Very smooth, lighter, crisp kind of lightly bright and soft carbonation, great smooth texture and body. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nice light spice, light-to-moderate sweet taste, lighter bitter. A little bit of an herbal savory taste. Great saison. Supremely enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden straw color with a big frothy head of foam. Rally nice floral fruit comes through and mixes seamlessly with the dry hay, earthy pepper and clean dough backbone. Really refreshing yet complex... Sucked down this bottle to my dome with no problem, if I had another i may have cracked it too. Delicious !!

750 ml bottle to snifter (2013 vintage; shared with jmborggren and the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy orange with ample fluffy white head. Smells good too; doughy, yeasty, spicy, and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle in a cup. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice crispness to it. Average texture. Not a bad beer at all.

Can’t really notice the difference between this and the regular Saison Dupont, lovely citrus yeasty barnyard with lively bretty tones very smooth and grassy. Great.

Chiara schiuma fine molto persistente.
Mi aspettavo un pò di più ad esser sincero.
Poco luppolo per essere una dry hopping, un pò acquosa...
