UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 Pours golden w/ a full sustained head. Sticky lacing w/ a full rocky canopy. Nice! Aroma is fresh and bright w/ flowery candy. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers that create a soft cotton texture. First off this brew has a bright, crisp, and fruity charcter. It’s quite refreshing and has a defined ctrus rind componenet that quickly asserts itself and sticks like a strict teacher looking over your shoulder during class. Nicely spiced and only mildly sweet. I can taste flavors of citrus, cotton candy, clean spices, vanilla bean, peach and apple. The finish is bittered w/ citrus rind and peach pit leaving the palate dry w/ lingering spice and a refreshing sensation that directs me to drink more. Very addicting. Alcohol is well hidden.

Ahh, Foret. A true classic in our own time. Very yeasty head, a very notable amount of spice but not too much, and an alcohol conent we can all agree with. The flavor never disagrees with your meal, and this beaity only gets better with cellaring. If you have never tried this fine Belgian Ale, I dare say that you’ve never lived, sir.

One of the best beers that I have ever tasted! I enjoyed the fact that it was an organic beverage but still tasted fabulous! tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - FEB 1, 2015
это пиво очень вкусно. я бы, конечно, рекомен& его всем. пожалуй& обратит& его. очень хорошо! mookie (45) - Tacoland, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2005
organic is the bonus. lightstruck (skunk) aroma disappears rapidly. cloudy with nice foam like shaving cream. this saison is much like the other dupont saison. refreshing, tart, fruity, fizzy, rustic, bready, soft, frothy and well balanced with bitterness. another work of art from the farmhouse.

Had this one under the USA moniker of "Foret Organic."
750 mL Bottle. Enjoyed this one with my Easter 2008 dinner: Roasted duck (marinated with orange puree and rosemary) with caramelized onions, saffron rice with peas, and a balsamic reduction, and rosemary sourdough rolls. Equally amazing with dessert: homemade sweet ricotta tart.
Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass, forming a huge foamy/rocky head. This beer is beautiful: the color of gold, hay at sunrise, and strong chamomile tea, with bubbles a-plenty rising from the bottom of the glass.
On the nose, this ale continues to unfold a plethora of offerings the longer I linger -- burnt sugar, caramel, grass and hay, almonds, cardamom, and (my favorite), boxwoods after a summer rain.
The taste picks up right where the nose leaves off: almonds, spice, white pepper, raw unrefined sugar and caramel, with a tart (almost mild citrus) twist. Superb!!
Nor does the palate disappoint: even thought the beer is slightly sweet on the tongue, the palate is cava-dry and bubbly. Wonderful stuff.
Overall: More, please!!! And, it’s organic, to boot.
Equally amazing with the savory duck and the slightly sweet ricotta tart. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Citronella and pepper in the pleasant nose with notes of mint. Fairly clear, golden coloured body with dense, small-bubbled, white head that lasts nicely. Earthy bitterness and mild spices with some notes of pine. Bitterness lasts nicely. Soft, smooth mouth, medium body, gentle carbonation. Excellent! American version is well-named for the flavours it presents. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and a gang of Bierophoux.dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Year old bottle tasted at a resampling seemed to have lost a fair bit of character - best enjoyed more or less fresh. Probably would have knocked it down to mid-three’s had I been rating.
Resampled numerous bottles of various ages and it keeps getting better and better - this is in my top ten beers ever, no question!
Smells citrusy, floral, very nice. This beer is really good. It’s got a light amount of hops in the finish, it seems. Smooth and a little spicy throughout. I could drink this all the time. Augustijn55 (82) - Izegem, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2006
WOW ! Never drinks such a good "bio" beer. Smells citrusy, floral, very nice. This beer is really good. It’s got a light amount of hops in the finish. Smooth and a little spicy throughout. Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 375ml bottle. Poured opaque yellow/orange with a small white head. Aroma: citrus, musty with passing notes of alcohol as it warmed. The taste had citrus, spices and Belgium yeast with a mild bitterness in the finish. Medium carbonation. Very good body. I thought it was great.
