Aged in suboptimal conditions for 2 years, Utter sublimation, with a sweet maltiness that was unexpected of a beer of this gravity, compounded by a complexity from the yeast that is enchanting. Excellence. Solstice1222 (11) - Pine Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Another one of my Top 3. Saison Dupont is the best Farmhouse Ale around. I have tried a few in the past and this is by far the best. It’s a stranded on a desert island beer along with Piraat. Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Aroma: fantasically good, reminds me of Duvel, spicy yeast and spices, cloves, coriander, green banana, candisugar, rich but light malt. Some alcohol.estoves2 (98) - SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Appearance: slightly cloudy, nice. Etxotic golden orange, green rind. White, fluffy head.
Flavour: initially sweet, corn sugar, malty, EXTREMELY well balanced, some bitterness, spicy, wheat, some sourishness, almost milky...
Palate: soft, really good, certain sting but above all thick and silky.
Bottle. Cloudy yellow body with large foam/fizzy head that last pretty long. Aroma is sourish and hefeweizenlike. Flavor is spicy,smokey and banana. Finish is hoppy. A spicy hopy aftertaste, clovelike. Palate is thin and has som dryness. A refriishing beer. derst27 (35) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Thick, frothy head lead by a smooth citrus aroma. A muddy gold color masks an orangy body of flavor. The aftertaste is dry and clean and not overly strong or fruity. Solid lacing and overall a terrific beer.

Small bottle. Pours hazy orange, with a thin tan head. Aroma is all earth; hops, yeast, and spices. Flavor follows suit with pepper, yeast, hops, citrus and earth. Fairly strong carbonation. A benchmark for the style. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2007

Bottle. A vey nice saison beer. Malt and herbs. Can drink it on bottle as well from draft. yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2007
Bright gold with a creamy white head. Sweet malt on the nose, at first, then grassy herbal notes, followed by a spicy phenolic aspect. Fantastic balance in the mouth - strong herbal hop bitterness, surprisingly weighty malt profile and a slightly spicy yeast character. Very polished, very herbal. Not as funky or raw as I was expecting.
