It’s just Saison DuPont with a bit more fruit. Except ... Saison DuPont is one of my favourite beers, so this is very very good. Cloudy straw coloured, with more frothy head than a cappuccino. Some fruity zest alongside the peppery spices on the nose, creamy mouthfeel, more citrus in the taste than regular SD, and more spice alongside the bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, tasty, great.

2014 version at Hiranoya. Lots of hops, grassy, light citrus, good bite. Bit creamy further down. Refreshing. I like this. I can’t describe it. Bit of the bon voeux sweetness about it, but still light and refreshing like the original SD is. Good stuff.

Bottle. Golden-amber with a white head. Aroma is white pepper, very lightly peachy, grassy, yeast. Flavour is yeasty, lightly peppery, some fresh citrusy hop notes. Rather mild and subdued. Suits a summer night but my palate was still somersaulting over De Molen’s Vuur en Vlam which had superb heavy-hitting hop flavours.
