4.18/5  rDev +7.5%
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

3.98/5  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

3.38/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Purchased 250 ml bottle from LCBO for $2.95 CDN. Was intrigued by this as it was something i haven't seen before in these parts so figured it may be worth a try. Served cool into an oversized wine glass.

Appearance- Hazy golden color with many hues of dark orange. Nice 1/2 finger of white head came and went quickly but left a decent soapy residue on top of the glass. Some effervescent bubbles are present and maybe even tiny yeast particles are also in there.Some lacing once the beer is partially consumed.

Smell - Boozy with honey maybe melon and a undercurrent of clean sanitary smells. The last is a little strange but doesn't completely wreck this as it somehow works with the booziness and the sweetness of honey and melon. Also a bit of a smokiness to my nose which may actually be than cleanness I smelled on the first whiff. Anyway there's a lot going on and it smells different but quite appealing.

Edit - after having the taste I figured the cleanness smokiness smelled a lot like minty mouthwash.

Taste - Starts fairly sweet with the honey flavors and seems very light and floral tasting on the tongue. then the alcohol kicks in and it becomes a little more like minty mouthwash. Also finishes with a bit of heat which is probably alcohol induced. Although as it warms the mouthwash resemblance slowly disappears.

Mouthfeel - Fairly rich and decadent while at the same time remaining light on its feet. Slightly dry finish, but nothing out of the norm.

Overall - While crafted and certainly different, but didn't like the seemingly mint flavors in the beer and the heat afterwards was not really to my liking. The one thing it didn't to that i had hoped it would is that the beer was not terribly refreshing. Any while certain beers styles do that more than others, at the end of the day it's just something I wouldn't buy again.
