4.18/5  rDev +7.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

250ml bottle, poured into a John Courage half pint stem glass

Pours with a rich deep cloudy amber body, some lemony highlights throughout. Half inch thick tight, dense white head with great retention. Massive amounts of thick cloudy lacing all up and down the glass

Smell, rich and spicy on the nose. Lots of aromatic floral notes, lots of purple violets, lavender and rose water. Sweet acidic sherbet plus an estery tinge of shop bought boiled sweets. Some more light citrus and a little bit of pepperiness, backed up by a sweet yet dry malt profile in the background

Taste, crisp and sharp yeast initially. The dryness is followed by a huge whack of almost choking dried flowers, perfume and freshly cut grass. Sweet esters along with fizzy sugary sweets, slightly peppery hops also rear their head for a brief while. Some slight candied sugar on the finish along with a slight clove bitterness

A deep and interesting saison. Another intriguing beer from the Dupont brewery. Thanks to Bierschenker for this fine beer, you are owed something great for this

3.59/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, honey, and white grape juice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, chalk, spice, earth, honey, and white grape juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with flavors that are more earthy than the smell indicates to me.

3.51/5  rDev -10%
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 +2.1%
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 +3.3%
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
