3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. Cloudy bright orange with a decent stable white head. It’s got the benchmark Saison DuPont yeasty aromas with subtle added peaty smoky notes. Taste is dry, spicy and bittersweet with smoky notes at the finish which are not overpowering. Medium bodied palate with a spritely mouthfeel. I prefer the original but this is still worth trying.

Stern clear golden, soft white ringed head. Nose is greasy, lemon and syruppy - no real smoke. Initial taste is rich malty, earthy and bread crust. Carbonation is soft enough, mouthfeel a bit cloying. Finishes gritty melon and lemon, lingers oddly peppery and fairly yeasty - again no real smoke.
