4.95/5  rDev +27.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - Typical Dupont loud, violent cork-pop, a very good sign! Poured into an Ommegang goblet. Radiant unfiltered cloudy gold, loads of head, excellent retention. Looks the way a saison should look, but not quite the lacing I expect. 2006 on the cork, so this has a *little* age on it.

S - Big time nose we have here. I do sense the sweet honey immediately, over a bit of leathery, wet earth farmhouse aroma. Peppery. Some fruity esters I am struggling to identify. There's a lot there, and it just beckons a taste.

T - Absolutely superb, everything the aroma offers and more. Peppery and hoppy enough to cut through spicy food, indeed I am having this with a pork chipotle pepper burrito. A little yeasty funk, and a verdant, luxurious essence of honey, though this honey contributes only trace amounts of sweetness, as this is a dry beer through and through like other offerings from Dupont. The honey. Aftertaste is long on lemon-y hop, yeast, and all that beautiful wild mountain honey. Damn, this is a superb beer.

F - Weighs on the palate with a minimalist touch. Prickly carbonation cleanses the palate in a hurry and gets you primed for the next sip. Don't see how the mouthfeel could get much better.

D - Like Foret, Avec Les Bons Voeux, and regular Saison Dupont, this is a masterpiece, and is about as drinkable as it gets. Will pair extremely, extremely well with just about any food. We have a winner here. I could have easily given this straight 5s, but I had to knock a half-point off for the relative lack of lacing in the appearance. Virtually flawless by my reckoning. The contents of the 750 ml bottle have just about disappeared, and that makes me sad. Another underrated saison - I don't see how this is not an A++ beer. Could easily be my favorite beer, period.

3.51/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours golden but slightly hazy. This white head with minimal lacing.

Definitely alcohol forwards with hints of citrus. Earthy and musty.

Bready, malty and grassy. Initially a bit bitter/tart followed by honey sweetness. The alcohol is only present in the finish.

Slightly heavy and a bit syrupy. Nice acidity paired well with the carbonation.

Definitely an interesting brew although I'm not sure I would rush out to try it again.

3.98/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Glowing hazy golden body topped with a massive creamy white head. Tons of lacing persists on the glass.

S: Potent clove and peppery phenolics. Borderline medicinal in a positive way. A bit of overripe banana.

T: Sweet honey, more yeasty clove, and floral hops. Slight citrus with a moderately bitter finish.

M: Airy mouthfeel with spritzy carbonation. Dry finish.

O: Easy drinking and refreshing. No trace of the ABV. Very balanced but not exceptional in any aspect. Still glad I grabbed this one.

4.03/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750ml into a New Belgium Goblet at about 45F.

Very nice and super earthy "organic" saison from the masters of the style. Lovely glowing orange with a very creamy and resilient head. Plenty of biscuity malt , honey sweetness, citrus esters and barnyard phunk on the nose. Taste is similar: grassy / herbal hops, balanced by tangerine / nectarine citrus, light dry maltiness and a very earthy , organic Brett funk. The honey serves as kind of an integrator to round it all out and tie it together. Probably a little bit heavier bodied and less peppery of a finish than a classic Dupont Saison, but very nice. 8% is undetectable and you could easily get in trouble with this one. I could session the hell out of this beer.

Another Belgian Classique.

4.0 / 5.0
