3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 7-12-2014 at 800 Degees Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer has a very small off-white head that is fully lasting, transparent straw body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is bready malt, citrus hops, fruity, and spicy. The flavor is bready malt, yeast, fruity, citrus hops, spicy, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is just okay for me as the flavor just is not totally to my liking for a Saison. The flavors just seemed a little disjointed to me.

Pours a hazy yellow gold with a beautiful dense of white head. The smell is tart, clove, floral, yarrow. The taste is clove, light fruit, touch of bubblegum, ending dry and crisp. The body is light with nice carbonation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 375 ml. Pours a huge, huge head that leaves lovely lacing. Very yeasty on the nose: this smells of ripe cheese! Full and bitter in the mouth with notes of grass and apple. I agree there is a vinosity here, though that is no fault at all. It's an elegant drink yet not shy in any way. Strong, incredibly dry and bitter finish. Good stuff, though if pushed I'll stay I still prefer the regular version. Looking forward to the next two bottles.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 edition: Pours a clear light golden with a huge white foamy head that sustains well and eventually settles to a big dollop. Leaves behind nice thick lacing. Aroma is lightly fruity and phenolic with a hint of gassy hops. Some juicy fruit initially in the taste with a bit of perceived sweetness and a phenolic note. That gives way to hay and grassy flavors along with just a hint of bitterness that quickly and nicely dry out the taste. Finishes dry and clean. Crisp mouthfeel and medium bodied with high carbonation. Very good and drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful hazy brownish gold pour, great aroma, similar to the standard Dupont but heavier and more hoppy, definitely more flavorful and drier than the standard, excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Limited edition of the famed Saison Dupont, dry-hopped and bottled in magnums. Loose, off-white head, hazy pale blond colour with greenish hue. Powerful and agreeable aroma of apple, hay, honey, grapefruit peel, dry sherry, floral hops, dry white wine, pear; soft fruity taste, honeyish malt sweetness, bready and yeasty with complex spicy notes, increasing in complexity in the finish thanks to a fresh, green, resinous, floral and grassy hoppiness. Truly beautiful saison, but I hadn’t expected anything else from this fantastic brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur orange trouble, forte mousse blanche. Nez fruité, orange, houblonné agrumes. Gout fort amer, houblonné, fruité avec arrière gout typique saison (amer, houblonné, acidulé, note astringente voir brulée) Pour les amateurs de saison. Moi c pas mon type que je préfère. Mais c de la bonne bière qui assure!
