4.8/5  rDev +23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

In a Duvel glass at 50 degrees F. 2001 date on the cork. Pours a nice hazy golden orange sunset like color with an creamy off-white head that starts big then quickly recedes to a thin layer. No lacing here.

Great mix of smells with coriander, lavender, licorice, general florals (but not too sweet) and those chalky wafer candies whose name escapes me. Very inviting. No hoppy aroma detected here.

Refreshing taste for sure with a great mouthfeel! Hits with a mouthwatering burst of some mellow citrus-like character along with a sweetness that shifts into a nice spice bite. Very nice taste here that begs for roasted chicken. As it warms slightly it takes on a slight spiced apple cider aftertaste. Yum!

Mouthfeel is a slickness with a creamy carbonation that is in support to keep it cleansing. A truly impressive carbonation injection that has bubbles so tiny it is almost like a nito-tap texture. A slight drying at the end leaves my palate clean.

Drinkability is high due to the wonderful combination of smells, flavors, and textures. Superb!

I didn't think I was going to like this beer as much as I did. B. Dupont's other organic beer was good, but not impressive. This one wowed me!

This brewery produces truly impressive beers!

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
