4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl at home while studying. Cork pops out on its own as soon as the cage is off. Pour is a very slightly hazy light gold, with a billowing white head that compacts to almost a whipped egg white cap. Aroma is some crisp malt, floral and spicy hop and yeast character. Light white fruit. Taste is quite similar, with perhaps more fruit. Lots of floral character, with a white pepper spice finish. Fair amount of yeast character. Mouthfeel is spritzy and intensely dry. Very, very nice beer, not a ton of the funky complexities in a young bottle such as this one....guess that means I have to dig up an old rate or just buy more to hide away!

From bottle at home. Fruity, apricots, pineapple and some spices. Really beautiful cloudy caramel light golden color. Taste is sweet at first with a slightly sour finish. Love this beer. I have a feeling I will drink a lot of this beer this summer.

On draught at Todd English P.U.B. Perfect golden color. Aroma is tart yeast, light flowers, and a touch of spice. Taste is tart farmhouse yeast, sweet floral, light peppery spice. What I think of when I think of a saison. Clean and crisp.

Wow, an almost perfect saison, light, funky, citrusy. Light and a little floral on the palate, with some bready and grassy notes on the finish. A little earthy and I like that. Great beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 11.2 ounce bottle, giving a two inch foamy cream colored head. Bread and fruity aroma. Light orange color. Bread, floral, banana, fruity, offset with bitter on the back tongue and throat. Unfiltered, sediment falls to the bottom of glass. Very refreshing experience on a sunny spring day.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Corked bottle. Hazy gold color. Fresh but mild aroma of wheat, lemon, citrus, grass, hop and yeast. Character is balanced and carbonated. Soda-like. Really tasty. A good saison.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 vintage 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is light and floral, very spring like. Notes of banana, peach, lemon, spice, and some bread. It pours a somewhat hazy, dull yellow color topped by a dense, creamy, and frothy, but active and unstable, eggshell white head. A generous fluffy layer remain and leaves a medium light amount of dirty lace.The taste is a medium high sweet complimented by a medium, mellow bitter. A lot of fuzzy carbonation is noticed on the mouth first, putting the texture on the thin side of creamy. It’s a medium bodied, dry, crisp beer with a hoppy, resin, zesty finish - refreshing and clean. The aftertaste is peppery with dry orange peels.

Saison dupont. Not the one pictured here but in a capped 33cl bottle from Belgian beer box. Pours hazy golden yellow with lasting head. Nice aroma.
Refreshing taste. Nice bitter dry finish.
A nice beer but not amazing in my opinion.
