KansaiBeerLvrs (4810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 --------&# Aug 2014------- DuPont Dry Hopping 2014: On tap at Bakujun, 1296 yen for 284ml. Served in the appropriate glassware and I am pretty sure this is the only place in town that does that... A completely opaque honey gold with a good cm of creamy off-white foam that lingers. Great aroma of saison spice + funk, sweet bread & light citrus. Nice light refreshing body - creamy with an energizing carbonation. This is simply delicious: spice, funk, some Brett, light citrus, wheat a touch of cloves in the finish. Really nice stuff, I made the right call ordering this. -------old rating Jan 2013------- generous people at Craft Beer Base shared this with me! It is quite possibly my first saison. A cloudy beer with good lacing and an inch head of foam. It started off a bit acidic and spicy, pretty good maybe a 3.25 but after warming up some sweet fruity notes started to come through and helped push up it’s score. Be sure to serve at the right temperature!

On tap @ Animal. Golden colour with a white head, medium lasting and nice lacing. Aroma has belgium yeast notes, fruity and citrus. Flavor is slightly alcoholic, yeasty, fresh. Dry final, bittery with a good duration. Carbonation and body are medium.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 22, 2012
Dry-hopping does not add that much to an already mostly perfect saison. Aroma has a nice hop flourish along with the typical yeasty saison smell. Otherwise this is good, but perhaps not any kind of genre-hopper that the name suggests.

dmac (5828) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured a very hazy thick orange/amber body with a thick foamy bright white head. Aroma was fruity with notes of apple cider, acidity, white wine vinegar and some bread. Medium/full body with average to strong carbonation a creamy finish and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is similar to the aroma with notes of green apple, Belgian yeast, wet bread crusts and some white wine. Meh not loving this one.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Hazed golden beer with a tall white head. A really strong apple sweetness to the nose. Lots of floral and spicy hops, a sweet maltiness, some yeast, and a touch of pepper. A bit fruitier than the normal Dupont. The flavor has a nice white pepper note, sweet malt, and yeast. Quite fruity from both the esters and the hops. A good floral note, some citrus peel, and tons of apple.
