thornecb (5817) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Pours slightly hazed pale gold into a tumbler. Bright white soapy head with medium retention. Skunk, hay and bready lemon. Dry yeast, sour lemon and a lasting bitter pith finish.

Mah, Dupont qui mi delude un bel pochino, anche se in fondo al bicchiere ho sentito il loro lievito.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
Poured cloudy dark golden color with white head settling to sporadic lacing. Aroma is of citrus, coriander and orange zest. Taste is slightly sweet with some light bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and nicely carbonated, very refreshing on a hot day.

beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Draft at Kickbacks.Hazy gold pour with a thick white head. Scent is yeasty, spicy and citrus. Taste is spices, lemons, grass and pepper. Complex and good.

KyotoLefty (9996) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2011
Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas Clear gold like a pils. Clean wheat nose. Cereals, uncomplex, straightforward and clean. Flavor is slightly spicy, malty, with cereals, banana. Light and nice. Not too sweet or spicy; a bit-pils-like. Clean and nice.

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 Ghostlike blond. Stark-white foam exhibits decent retention. Characteristic Dupont nose of sulfur, Juicy Fruit gum, lemon, crackery malt, and honeysuckle. Smidgeon of mint, coriander, plasticlike phenols and black pepper. Invigorating, seltzery carbonation. Immediately quenching, as a rush of lemony acids wash over the tongue. Little else follows, however, as the slick body provides a poor platform for ensuing flavors to adhere. Quite muted floweriness from the hops is apparent, along with trace gum. Phenolics lend a distant crackle, though they fall short in lending adequate firmness. Lack of mineralic grip also does not aid the body in any way. Gentle nip of hard lemon candy hangs on just long enough to cling to the palate which contributes negligible depth/sweetness, which only somewhat counteracts the limpness. The spiciness is muted to the point of being seemingly yeast-derived, rather than the incorporation of actual spices. Random note of lime adds a bit of intrigue. A portion of starchy wheat remains hearty enough to caress the palate, while the remainder is dispersed by the overt slickness. Finishes well-balanced with dry malt and a fading flourish of melon, flowers, phenols and lemon. About what youd expect from these gurus of rusticity, at least regarding cleanness and charming fermentation byproducts. However, the lack of depth its greatest drawback; although the hop bitterness is appropriately low, some mineralic and/or hop-derived coarseness is precisely what it needs. A very pleasant, albeit straightforward, rendition.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Pours a hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Slightly spicy, earthy aroma with a nice balance of funky yeast, bread, alcohol, zesty spice and light fruit. Slight vegetal presence with hints of earthy and grass followed by some peppery coriander and citrus rind. Dupont makes this and the nose shows it. A nice blend of saison and witbier characteristics. Medium bodied with some soft carbonation up front that lingers over the funky, spicy and sweet notes into a slightly dry finish. Again, the saison yeast is very evident with a funky, musty character. Hints of grass and straw countered by some zesty coriander and pepper as well as some citrus/light fruit. Hints of apple, pear and lemon rind give it the perfect amount of sweetness on the back end. Incredibly complex, delicious and extremely quaffable, especially on this 96 degree day. Highly recommended!

Bottle at Les caves Dupont. Cloudy pale yellow color. Subtle lemon aroma. Taste of sour lemon drops and bubblegum. Decent.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Tepid dark-gold, small bubbled white collar for a head. Nose is flat malt, very sweet with heavy banana and dough, crackers as well. Flavor is gum, green apple, lightly hot and overly sweet, and with a lingering banana and sugary candy (smarties) lingering in the finish.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2011
25cl bottle @ Les Caves Dupont. Dore et blanche. Arme est finement pic avec le coriandre ainsi que l"corce dorange, le tout laisse nanmoins passer des notes de grains et de levure dans la signature Dupont. Un palais qui est fruit avec des notes dorange et de coriandre comme pice. Une bonne carbonation se fait de suite ressentir et vient picoter la langue aprs chaque gorge. Bire reste mi-sche avec une bonne note de grains et une levure aussi prsente.
