375ml Bottle - Hazy golden with a foamy head. Perfumed and floral aroma with lemon, orange peel, hay and spice in the aroma. Nicely balanced taste with notes of lemon zest, coriander, pepper and a hint of peach all combining nicely. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

axl (145) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
375ml bottle. Hazy golden with tall white head leaving moderate lacing and lasting rather well. Aroma is typical saison yeast and spices with a generous hop profile going towards warmer, sweeter fruits like oranges. Taste is dry and peppery with some grapefruit, citrus, orange, maybe a hint of melon and just a touch of yeast. The carbonation is medium and so is the mouthfeel which presents a very nice and refreshing dryness.

Beatiful hazy, amber colored beer with a foamy, white head.

Nose: Hoppy, floral, Belgian yeast, banana, grass, hay, pear and apple.
Taste: Wow! An explosion of orange, grapefruit, apple, citrus, herbs, some spice and banana. Sweet malt in the background.
Body: Medium body and carbonation. Dry finish.

An amazing beer!

mikeyo1 (384) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy orange liquid and a beutiful creamy white head with curtains. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with citrus, subtle banana,grass, white pepper, candy, hay and background maltiness. Dry and crisp taste with dominant hoppyness and balanced medium to high bitterness throughout. Flavors of oranges, hay, white pepper, banana, candy, honey, grass, yeast and earth.

PalCabral (140) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber with a huge fluffy head that settles a bit but remains thru the session. The aroma is more discrete than I’d thought it’d be, herbal hops basically. The taste is initially sweet, then gradually fills up with prickly spicy bitterness, tastes of pine and resin. Long aftertaste. A pretty good saison, I would say, better than Dupont’s regular saison intact.

GenDV138 (2899) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. 2014 edition dry-hopped with Challenger. Slightly hazy golden yellow with quite a bit of off-white head. Aromas of citrus fruit and peel, herbs, floral notes, light funk, a bit of black pepper. Tastes of floral notes, citrus, herbs, light spices, balanced barnyard funk. Medium body with a very dry finish. Like this more than the original version.

neongolden (728) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, May 21 2015) Pours very hazy pale gold with a small lingering white cap and lace. Aroma has herbal cut grass hops overlying the Dupont yeasty profile with esters giving slight banana, bready and dusty, with a wet hay farm undertone. On the palate the herbal hops are a lot more prominent. Esters are there, a bit of bubblegum and banana and some orange, but it never ends up sweet. Instead becomes dry, bitter and herbal on the slightly mineral finish. Lightish body with active carb. The palate-centric hop character surprised me but it was pleasant, and I like the dry but fruity nature of the beer. Much easier to drink than sweet estery saison. Elegant, refreshing, tasty.

rikstar (1232) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
0,375l fles gedeeld met ralf. Oranjegoud met een witte kraag. Citrus en gist domineren in geur en smaak. Erg lekker voor in het warme zomerzonnetje.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas & Max. 2014 bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma of fruity esters and a spicy note. Dry flavor, fruity, mildly spicy, with a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.
