luttonm (7226) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Quite tall, full white foam head on a body that is moderately cloudy after incorporating the yeast. Full bready orange. Nose of earthy hops and ester, with some full warm malts. Spritely sip, bright carbonation, with a balanced and smooth full Dupont saison body. Minty hop and esters, pine needle overtones. Hints of resin. There is nice complexity if you are looking for it, but it is also just a delicious, easy drinker. A treat.

Desverger (14695) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 2, 2018
[email protected], Copenhagen (01/04/2018) - gold yellow coloured pour with a white head. Fruity and floral grassy hoppy, some barnyard yeast, zesty citrus lemon notes, light palate, dry finish.

danlo (3552) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2018
375ml bottle at ORB Belgium Beer Festival 2018. Hazy golden colour, white foam head leaving lacing and fruity banana & yeasty aroma. Taste is grainy, fruity and yeasty with clove notes and spicy citric earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy hop bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

malrubius (3216) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 25, 2018
Bottle from CBC Belmont. Hazy burnt orange with fluffy dense rocky head and lace. Spicy floral peppery aroma with hints of vanilla. Medium vanilla apricot sweetness, a little more bready than usual, I think because I dumped the yeast in, with light peppery earthy bitterness. Lacks the slight (not unpleasant) skunkiness I usually get from saaz. Light soft body, lower carbo than the others, maybe because of the yeast I dumped in. Anyhow. TOTALLY FUCKING EXCELLENT.

ClarkVV (7294) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2018
750mL bottle drunk 11/12/17.
Typical pillowy-white, well-retained head via mountains of carbonation, topping a brass-golden, well-carbonated, clear body, sediment left behind.
First few sniffs are pleasingly floral, with spicy herbs as well and strong honey-drenched pils malt to back. Zesty and a touch earthy, it, much to my dismay, grows tacky and quite bitter/slightly resinous with more warming, while the malts continue to surge forth and I daresay it almost comes of saccharine-like.
The flavor never even has a brief period of enjoyment, as there is cotton candy, lemon detergent (light) and white table sugar galore. Messy esters, messy malts and vaguely bitter hops in the background that even the brisk carbonation can't dispel. Completely falls apart with warming/breathing, not that there was much to begin with. What the fuck, Dupont....Why can they not seem to string together two good years. It's always a rotation of good and bad....

DraftDodger (1959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2018
Copenhagen 13/3 2018. 37,5 cl bottle from Ølhandleren in Hørning. The usual yellow Dupont label. Pours hazy golden yellow with humongous bubbly, white head. Settles as 2,5 cm thick blanket of thick, fluffy foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is intense and sour. Citrus, unripe goose berries, lightly metallic. Hints of humid basement. Medium carbonation - yet prickly. Slightly thick texture. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong and dry sour bitterness. Aftertaste is sour and dry and slightly acidic. As a Saison should be. Sour, dry and prickly.
