bottle from Bièrerie Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Hazy pale golden with a fluffy, persistant white head. Funky fruity nose. Light-bodied start, malty and slightly grainy, with fruity hints, mainly pear, some citrus fruit, and a dleicious bitter finish. Good, good, good!

375cc bottle. It is a saison dupont with some extra citrus and floral hoppyness. Beautifull beer, refreshing and pairs nicely with food.

EithCubes (5206) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2015
2014 bottle (with Challenger), green-glassed 750mL, corked and caged, stamped L14031A. Nose is bright and lightly tart, wonderfully lively and zesty, floral and spritely. Citrus, light pepper, lightly herbal, but very colorful. Pours clear, bright golden with a short but dense white head and plenty of carbonation, lace. Light body but not watery, soft with a soft bitterness and only lightly crisp, picking up some green and vegetal notes, but those are rounded and smooth. Light warming in the chest but otherwise no alcohol, touch of a dusty coating, mostly dry and very digestible, ultra-classy. Clean, lightly earthy, heavy straw, heavy fresh hay, citrus, faint grain, faint wood, chamomile, touch spice/pepper. I suppose at this point I’m past that point of a big jolt of fresh dry hop character, but it still tastes as wonderful as ever. Delicate and a little shy but incredibly refreshing; about the softest, most delicate thing I’ve had in years, but that aftertaste is bone dry. [2015.03.27: 4.4]

corkyrory66 (844) - BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
Saison en houblonnage à froid et refermentée, brassée avec 3 houblons dont le Challenger dans cette version 2014. Bouteille de 37,5 cl bouchonnée de liège et cerclée... On est donc aux antipodes des piteuses bières bio en 25 cl de la brasserie... Titre alcoolique de 6,5 % abv. Couleur bond doré tendre, avec un très léger voile très esthétique. Bulles par dizaines de milliers, très fines, en fontaine centrale. Superbe. Mousse blanc légèrement cassé, très épaisse, bien structurée, avec de la densité sur le haut. Arômes de malt clair finement grillé, houblon très fin, pain 7 céréales, pointe de noisette et levure. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, à la superbe entame à l’équilibre (déjà) parfait malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche longue, fine, magnifique. 2ème au superbe ensemble bien plein, ferme, de grande tenue. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume complexe, très belle. 3ème bouche avec finesse, précision, harmonie. Arrière-bouche de grande composition, et grande amertume. Longueur splendide, en progression constante. Jambes finement marquées. Levure : très grande veine de la maison, fine, complète et complexe. Alcool qui soutient parfaitement les saveurs malgré son niveau modeste mais adéquat au genre. Finale qui vous fait fermer les yeux de bonheur. CONCLUSION : ma première saison superbe de chez Dupont, alors que la brasserie est mondialement connue pour cela. Il fallait bien que j’y arrive, mais il fallait la trouver … Je peux ainsi leur donner mon cinquième 5 dans leur production, et pour cette dry hop il s’agit de son premier 5 sur le site !!!! Voilà donc qui est très bien dans tous les sens, à la veille du printemps.

stravale (2424) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2015
Keg @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury [280115]
Blonde, hazy, frothy white head
Aroma of citrus zest, soft saison yeast, lemon, apricot, fruity yeast
Taste - Sharp citrus zest, soft yeast, nice fruits, less peppery and more fruity than the standard Saison Dupont. I prefer this more.
Palate - Medium carb, medium light body, nice soft bitter, easy for the abv.
Overall - Very fresh. Quaffable. Great to see quality beer like this in Shrewsbury.

damzz (325) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Pours a hazy gold with a full ever so slightly off white head that lasts. The nose is faint. The body is slightly fuller than the regular saison. The basic Dupont taste is there enhanced by the hops (Challenger) added bitterness. The yeast residue was brown differing from the regular Dupont that is lighter. 750 oz champagne bottle Vintage 2014
