Bottle at Tria. Cloudy gold with a very foamy head. Aroma is a little funky, with a slight skunkyness. Could be the green bottle. Taste is lemony and refreshing. Very good beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can't believe I've never actually rated this one. Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with big fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of funky farmhouse saison esters over some bready malt and light grassy hops. Taste is a bit oxidized, as most beer imported will be, but still has a lot of that goodness that makes this beer unique. The epitome of the saison style.

Porcellini (50) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 17, 2017
Color dorado, con espuma blanca y duradera. Carbonatación justa. Olor a levadura y algo parecido a especias. Poco cuerpo, pero algo aceitoso por así decirlo. El sabor es complejo, pero es similar al del champán. Final seco, no amargo. Muy curiosa y recomendable.

Fisler (607) - Bamberg, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Optisch trüb, kein Schaum, Perlung medium. In der Nase mal Wein und mal Karamell. Im Trunk ebenso schwankend. Sehr malzig herb, fast schon schokoladig. Aber irgendwie zu schwer für ein Saison. Schwer auszumachen, aber äußerst interessant.

cervmagpt (869) - PORTUGAL - SEP 6, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 25B-standard). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L16397B (BBF 11/2019). AROMA: medium citrus-like aroma with notes of oranges and lemons. medium-low malt sweetness with na almost neutral character (slightly bready). medium-low phenols (clove-like). hops not discernible. APPEARANCE: gold color and clear. medium white head with good retention. TASTE: medium citrus-like flavor like the aroma (oranges/lemons), with a soft and slightly bready-sweet malt background. medium-low phenols (clove). medium-high bitterness with a dry and bitter finish. PALATE: medium body with medium-high carbonation. OVERALL: a very nice saison with all the style characteristics.

W aromacie brzoskwinia, kwoaty i stajnia. W smaku brzoskwinia, fajna delikatna kwasność, sporo slodowości.

luttonm (6552) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. 375ml. Pours with a heavy, tall white head, and dissipates to a finger of cream. Hazed, rich orange body. Heavy bread aroma, crust and nutty steam. Full, smooth sip. Hints of smoke, bread crust, sweet grassy grain, and a peppery bitterness. Carbonation is bright and lovely. Just fantastic.

Colore dorato con cappello di schiuma persistente. Al naso i crosta di pane e luppolo Alla bocca equilibratissima grazie all’uso sapiente del lievito della casa. finale secco e piacevolmente amaro. Il prototipo della Season.

Dégustée dans un verre Maredsous,belle robe orangée cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse blanche bien persistante avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez est sur les arômes de houblons,levures agréables avec une petite pointe de miel.La bouche est à l’image du nez avec une saveur fruitée très légère et bien intégrée à l’association douceur-amertume.La finale est sèche et très désaltérante.Une blonde qui se rapproche de la Chimay blanche par son velouté très plaisant!16,5/20

appiantiqua (240) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 28, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre Maredsous. Température de début 6 à 7°. Belle robe jaune orangé surmontée d’une généreuse et persistante mousse blanche de texture très fine; carbonatation intense. Nez agréable et parfumé sur des arômes de céréales et des notes fruitées. Le goût est très plaisant et équilibré avec des saveurs houblonnées et maltées ainsi qu’une discrète touche de levure. La finale est longue et agréable sur une bonne amertume. Une belle illustration de la "Belgitude". Dupont ne se distingue pas uniquement dans Tintin !!! 16,5/20
