pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from Canal’s. pours a somewhat cloudy orangy color with a big off white head. Aroma is of floral and grassy hops, lots of earthy spices, light pepper. Soft body with a nice mouthfeel. Taste is fruity yeast, light pepper, mildly fruity/grassy hops, finish is dry with a light kick of hops. Not an onslaught of hop intensity, but subtle and well balanced. Really tasty.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2013
The aroma is fruit, pepper, citrus hops. The appearance is slightly hazy gold, white head. The flavor is fruit, pepper, citrus, flowers. The finish is flowers, citrus, a tad watery in body. Decent, not great. Not the hop explosion I expected.

OldMrCrow (1869) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle from Malt and Vine.

Beautiful pour, white fluffy head atop delicious golden liquid. Spicier nose than the regular saison, quite herbal. A little more snap in the flavor, absolutely wonderful mouthfeel. This is in the same range as Saison Dupont, a top-rated beer for me. I’ll have to try them head-to-head at some point. Splendid.

beernbourbon (1310) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Pour is cloudy gold with large fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, earthy, peppery, faintly hoppy, and lightly herbal. Flavor is crisp and spicy with hints of citrus, herbs, and light floral hops. A really solid beer with a bit more body to it than the non-hopped version.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2013
750 ml brown bottle. It pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized fluffy head. The aroma has some citrus and pepper with the yeast esters not overpowering but just right. There is a slight bit of fresh green leaves. It’s akin to smelling a live plant. The taste has some sweet malt at first with some peppery spice at the back end. It’s a refreshing beer especially in this summer heat.

BMMillsy (1432) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Light yellow pour with fluffy head. Aroma of pear and funky yeast. Flavor is funk, dust, hops, pears, apples. Easy drinking. Not bad.

sloshgator (441) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopped is a great find for Belgium beer season. Aromatic floral hops coming off a light amber pour. Head is fluffy white but doesn’t last long. Taste is citrusy with a dry finish and a light sour. A light floral hop note lingers. Cuvee is one to be savored. Get while you can.

freeofthoughts (659) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Tap pours hazy golden yellow with a light tint of orange, light white fizz on rim. The aroma is sweet pale malts with a light Belgian funk and some citrus. The grains give a nice spice with some wheat like character and a smooth but hearty flavor. A light bit light bodied the carbonation fills out the space with some tingle. There is a great light Belgian funk with very well paired hops, orange and lemon citrus, and some dried hay and flowery freshness really bring it around. Good brew for sure but very impressive balance of hops.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2013
really nice floral and fruit nose, hints of bubblegum and mint leaves, lemon grass. Flavor the familiar soft fruit, herbal and a little pepper hop. Soft carbonation, medium body. Very nice.

kidmartinek (3722) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Hazy, gold color. White head but not for long. Aroma of basement and deep hollers with a lot of springtime yeasty sweetness mixed in. Rocky, dusty finish, followed by a puckering, weak sweetness.
