3fourths (9405) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Lemon-y, grassy, floral hops with touches of ripe peach and melon, the signature Dupont mineral and ester profile, and suggestions of coconut. Dusty-burnt toast maltiness, effervescent and lively carbonation, semi-sweet and strongly bitter, delicate and sharp at the same time. Pretty outstanding aroma, herbal and tropical, salty sea air, brined lemon against quiet banana esters (not green banama IMO, re: reviews from earlier in the year). It could use a bit more sugar, or tamer bitterness, to alleviate the sharp alcohol and carbonation. And it kind of drops off into an overly-dry / parched finish that seems rough and sticky, but those are minor complaints... the whole is still put together well and the aroma is especially fun at this age.

Was so elated to see that the new Cuvee Dry Hopping showed up on the shelf at the grocery store.... except it's two years old, great...
In classic Dupont style it pours a pale golden color with a head that's absolutely massive.

The aroma is earthy, floral, and pungent with a little bit of clean maltiness. Not especially hoppy smelling, considering the age that's not a surprise but It smells fresh and lovely despite it.

The flavor is certainly more bitter than I am used to Vieille Provision being & it's quite pleasant. Bone dry with light bits of fruity character, spicy with a bit of earthiness and a clean malt character throughout.

This poor guy didn't present the way he was supposed to after having been warehoused for nearly two years, but all in all he's been a trooper and is no less delicious for it.

Bosskie (1022) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2018
Golden colour, slightly opaque, dusty yeast, weak white head, light bubbliness. Smell is pepper, pineapple, citrus warmth, with subtle vanilla and peaches, herbs. Taste is full bitter with light sourness and an astringent clean finish. Drier than the normal dupont and the bitterness of the hop takes away from the balance. Still, fun idea and nice to try.

Pinball (12739) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2018
bottle. aroma is bitter saison yeasty, herbal, flowery, delicate but nice. flavor is sweet flowery, with notes of fruits, notes of hay,yeasty spices and herbs, dry saison, slightly sweet but not the bad kind of sweet, sweetness appears almost flowery or flower nectar like. a baseline bretty or saison yeasty dryness throughout keeps it very quenching. the hops delicately add some more bitter crispness to the beer, but the saison is the driver. Really nice flavor, very belgian, great saison, the hops does not ruin anything.

KraftowyJakup (552) - POLAND - DEC 8, 2017
Butelka. Korek głośno huknął, piana bardzo obfita, barwa złota, "świeża". Jest tu sporo siana, aż funkowo, takie ostre, wytrawne fenole, pieprz, delikatne nuty kwiatowe i trochę ziemi. W smaku średnio wysycone, spodziewałem się większego, kwiatowo-ziołowe, wytrawne, lekko kwaskowe, rześkie, stylowe, są fenole, jest ziołowo-trawiasta goryczka z dosłownie muśnięciem skunksa, jak na zieloną butelkę, i tak jest świetnie. Po ogrzaniu dochodzą brzoskwiniowe estry. Fajna, nieprzesadnie chmielowa, nowoczesna interpretacja tradycyjnego podejścia do stylu.

abemorsten (3715) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
375 ml flaske på RBHD-samling, Lura, okt.2017. Matt gyllen kropp med fingertykt tett hvitt skum. Litt syrlig friskt urtepreg i nesa med forsiktige krydder- og bærtoner. Ganske innbydende aroma. Krydret søt smak med passelig lett jordaktig bitterhet. På tross av smaken er munnfølelsen ganske tørr. Fin fylde og litt snerpete.

Holmen1 (6970) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
Flaske, delt på RBHD-samling hos Odd Gunnar, okt-17: lett uklar lys gylden med flott skum som varer. Nydelig humleprofil med krydder, urter, jordaktige toner og godt modne bær i en flott maltkropp. Superbalansert. Tørr, lekker og krydret bitterhet i avslutningen. En raffinert saison. Må ha en flaske av denne!

Holmen2 (4487) - NORWAY - OCT 29, 2017
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Gunnar´s 29.10.17. Hazy pale golden. Foamy, dense and persistent white head. Aroma of fresh grass, lemon zest and hints of green banana and coriander. Similar, and very fine, taste. Appropriately lively carbonation. Quite dry. Fine and fresh hop bitterness is lingering on.
