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.

Lately I have been going a little crazy on this style, trying every one that I can get my mitts on. This one pours a murky golden color similar to the look of an orange creamsickle. Heading is small, white, and leaves a white ring around the glass. Aroma is surprisingly like a creamsickle as well, with lots of cream, milk, orange, lemon, and even a bit of pie crust. Taste starts off incredibly creamy, with tons of vanilla and milk. It then becomes more citrusy, with light tropical fruits such as orange, mango and pineapple especially. Body of this one is in the middle, and the alcohol is virtually nonexistent in the flavor. You can definitely feel it after a glass or two, but everywhere else it is downright ghostly. After drinking a full champaign bottle to myself, I am kicking myself for not purchasing another bottle aka this stuff is damn drinkable. I drove to Julios today to pick up a few bottles of Alesmith IPA, expecting to be blown away by that beer. Instead, I came home with one of these and have found one of the best beers I have ever tasted. My first perfect score for a beer, and a well deserved one. I have to imagine that Hennepin is somewhat modeled after this beer, as the two seem very similar in their sweet/sour profiles. Fucking exquisite beer that I cannot wait to taste again. Cheers

I finally procured a couple of 750ml bottles at my neighborhood Whole Foods, in early December. Carbonation and lacing were superb, with some of the yeast sediment settling on top of the head. This ale is very drinkable, the fruity spice overtones explode in your mouth before swallowing. My only gripe with this fantastic beer is the green bottle; I believe it would have a much longer shelf life and be less prone to turning if bottled in brown glass.
