3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dupont Avril. Huge pure nose of saison yeast – I don’t know what else to call it – minerally, dry cobwebs, hay, wheat, some perfumed spices… really, really inviting aroma. Flavor is light and dry cobwebs and lemon and wheat… medium to heavy tartness, interesting, but not especially complex. Really quite dry, I keep coming back to cobwebs… it’s such a great descriptor for this beer.
Bottle 25cl. @home poured into a tumbler. Light sourish nose, hazy straw yellow, good two finger frothy white head, half-way lasting, good lacing; aroma, wheat, lemon, yeast, yoghurt; taste light sweet and bitter, mild acidic notes, wheaty, lemon; mild sweetbitter aftertaste, chalky and spicy notes; light body, watery texture, average carbonation; fresh and quaffable. eManu (556) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2017
From a 25cl bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a nice white head. adamnowek (3405) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2017
Aroma of grains, bread and yeast. Flavors of malts, bread, grains, hops. A bit light body, but that is a good point, can be a wonderful session beer. Nice balance of light but tasty flavors, malty ans hoppy, with a light but pleasant bitterness.
So easy to drink, refreshing and pleasant. One more please? Why stop at one?

BBE 08/2017. Superiso vaahto, pullosta yli kuohuva, viipyvä, hutera. Samean limefantamainen väri, happamahko suutuntuma, vetisen niljakas, tasapainoisen vetinen ja maltainen, helppo juotava, ei raikkain mutta ei tunkkaisinkaan.

Tap @Bir&Fud (Rome). Yellow/golden hazy bright pour, white medium low foam with minimal retention. Nose is spicy, a bit citric kind of lime, zest. Mouth is easy although with a valuable character, crackery, lime, with spicy sparkling finish. Summer good drink Cristobal37 (1262) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 19, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 Bottle from Beergium. Hazy gold white head. Sweet and black peppery yeast aroma with a malty core. Tart, malty, somehow a bit empty, very very dry. Palate is desert dry and a tiny bit of bitter hopiness. The aroma is really promising, classic dupont, but after it?s kinda plain. I suppose the low alcohol content limits the complexity. Still a nice refreshing warm weather beer. caribou43 (1213) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2017
I bought this bottle Place de l’Aligre in Paris. I drank it yesterday at home, relax with this rainy day in Lausanne. In my opinion, it is a pleasant beer due to the low rating of alcool, probably high fermentation. The limit of date was 11/2018 and the aromas were perfect. The body is yellow/creamy and troubled, white head, normal carbonation. The taste is with good notes of wheat, malt, creamy at the palate, good side of hop, at the final, you have notes of banana, a good beer to be refresh and not so expensive.

Slightly cloudy, pale yellow pour with thick, fine foam that fades into a rocky cap. Lots of tart, musty yeast in the nose with some floral elements around the edges. Some herbal notes emerge along with some saline and mineral through the tartness. Light / medium body, perhaps slightly watery with active, visible fizz. Familiar Dupont mineral flavors (sulfur?) and phenol and a surprising bright pilsner malt streak. The spices are a little muted, but stand well on top of the malt. The tartness is much less noticeable on the tongue. The finish is slightly sweet, not as dry as expected. I suspect the comparatively low rating has to do with the malt presence and the slightly bitter finish. The low ABV makes it very refreshing and drinkable. Very easy to imagine it on a hot summer’s day. Idiosynkrasie (8059) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2017
250ml bottle. Milky, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Herbal-spicy yeasty and minimally rotten-fruity aroma, sweet-ish gherkin-dill-brine-yellow apple-pear-conglomerate. Taste is slightly sweet, minimally bready malty, herbal-spicy yeasty and minimally tart-ish fruity, hints of pear, yellow apple, a touch of brine and dill; thin and slightly watery. Excellent light summer beer.
