This beautiful dirty blonde from Belgium pours a perfect tanned gold color that is cloudy and very effervescent. The head is pillowy like a cloud on a hot summer day, long Lived and thick. And the Nose is excellent - Spice and yeast floating on sweet malt and citrus highlights. The Mouthfeel is crisp and carbonated - Bubbles form in your mouth and cling to your tongue as you drink this one. The flavor is aggressive hopping for real Belgian ale that is a great surprise. The malt is not as sweet as the nose in the taste but is there in great undertones that really help set this beer apart from others. Overall this one is incredibly satisfying and enjoyable - Exceptional is the Word.

On a note - There is an element to the hops in the nose that vaguely reminds me of a new can of tennis balls????????

Appearance: Dark gold with a yeasty haze and and frothy head.

Smell: A very skunky pilsner malt fragrance, balanced with a fruity hop nuance.

Taste: Forward but smooth pilsner like character countered by a bitter, earthy hop profile. Ends with a spicy yet satisfying yeast background. Amazing for its strength!

Mouthfeel: Extremely effervescent, with a light, smooth after glow.

Drinkability: Really inviting and super refreshing, easy with an ongoing enjoyment of original Dupont fashion. Tastes of strong grain, hops and different spices bring new respects to this wonderful holiday saison.

Yikes. Drinking this from draught has I type. Never had this beer before. The standard saison from Dupont is one of my all time favorite beers and this "super" version is not disappointing. Hazy blonde with much head. Aromas of lemons, honey and faint bananas. Tastes amazing! Super saison indeed. Big citrus zest and sourdough flavours. Hoppier than I was expecting which is fine by me. Finishes slightly sweet for a saison, but is rather dry considering it's 9.5% abv. Yeah, good stuff.
