I have had this both on tap and in bottles. In bottles the natural carbonation stands out more and the tap version tends to be served too cold. Releasing the cork frees wisps of fruit, bread, light apricot, funky yeast and earthy aromas. It pours hazy gold with a very slight orange tint under a 1” milky white, finely bubbled foam cap that persists and leaves rich lace. This has a rich malty, bready backbone lightly sweetened with caramel providing an excellent base for yeast driven fruit - apricot, orange blended with a dash of yeasty funk as it crosses the tongue. Light earthy hops provide balance on the finish and lead to long, lingering fruit flavors. This has a creamy texture with a medium to medium full body and above average carbonation. This comes in a brown bottle so it has less chance of getting skunky than Saison Dupont and some of their other green bottled beer.

On tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA. Great find. Attractively transparent. One finger sticky head. Smell is tepid, very similar to regular Dupont. Taste is the redeeming quality, much more depth and room to explore. Hay and farmhouse flavors galore. Noticeable booze on the finish justified the price tag. Carbonation works in concert with the flavor profile. Tasty rarity.

750 mL bottle. Golden amber in color, cloudy, with a massive, pillowy white head that lasts for eternity and sticks to the side of the glass. Simply stunning. Aroma jumps right out of the glass and slaps you in the face with a big dose of complexity. Big, perfumy hops got my attention initially, followed by barnyard funk and skunk, mild fruits like peach and pear, orange citrus, and some light peppery spice. Flavor has the textbook Saison fruit/spice combo with the alcohol coming through ever so slightly. A big wave of earthy, perfumy hops as well. Bone dry in the finish but so smooth that it keeps you coming back for more and more. Medium bodied and very easy to drink, especially given the high ABV.

I saved this bottle for New Year's Eve, but everyone I was with had switched to drinking wine and I ended up polishing the whole thing off myself. Nothing but praise for this beer. I might even be underrating it but I'd like to have it again before giving it even higher marks. Outstanding beer, highly recommended.
