On tap at Monk's, Philly, PA.

I'm really not a fan of Dupont at all, but I panicked and ordered this one up, seeing nothing else that really grabbed my attention that particular afternoon. Golden-yellow color, pretty much clear, with a small white head on top that displayed good retention and lacing. In the aroma, lots of dry herbs and some barnyard funk. Lots of spice in the taste, coriander, rosemary, oregano, earthy funk, stale grains, manure, solventy booze. Just wasn't digging it. Pretty much like any other Dupont saison I've had, with an upped spice profile. Medium body, mostly dry mouthfeel, but overall uncomfortable, and really hard to drink. I like saisons a lot, but this one was not good.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lemon yellow and cloudy with lots of yeast particles floating within. Soda like carbonation, highly carbonated. It sports a 5 finger white head with a lemony tinge and small and large bubbles. Random chunky lacing.

S: Funky Belgian yeasts reminiscent of Saison Dupont, lemon rind, herbs like sage, snow, white sugar, slight cabbage or skunk, bitterness, light floral, candied lemon.

T: Lemon candy, lemon rind, medium sweetness, a hit of white lemon pith and rind in the taste of bitterness, bitter herbs, I believe there is brettanomycies in this. I tasted it in the Bruery’s and Boulevard’s brews only they tend to oversweeten those brews in my opinion. This is much dryer and pleasant as well as original. Light sourness. The alcohol is well covered. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium thick, slighty gelatinous and syrupy, medium low carbonation. Dry finish.

O: An amazing classic that I can see has set a standard for high octane saisons. Much prefer it to the others I’ve tried. Drank at Turkey Creek with my father in law June 29, 2014.
