look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I had this on tap at Zax Pints and Plates.

Served in a 10oz. snifter.

Appearance - It is a hazy honey gold color. There was no head at all when it was served to me, only a thin halo around the perimeter of the glass.

Smell - The smell is fairly interesting. It is very peppery, with tinges of other spices, perhaps clove or coriander. There are notes of lighter colored fruit as well - lemon, apple, apricot, pear... There is also that note of Belgian yeast, really funky, really earthy. It smells more like a Hennepin than a Fantome. Like a typical saison, just more peppery.

Taste - The taste is very similar to the scent. It is tastes like a typical saison with more pepper and honey added. It is yeasty, funky, fruity, and spicy - lots of pepper, clove and/or coriander. It has quite a bitter ending in the finish, it is pretty heavily hopped for a saison. I really enjoy the hop aspect in this one.

Mouthfeel - It is light/medium bodied. It is very crisp, there is a lot of carbonation in the mouthfeel. The crispness helps to cut through the peppery flavor.

Drinkability - It isn't too bad. I enjoyed drinking this one, it was really hoppy for a saison. This beer didn't wow me, really. I think I enjoyed the original to this one, and I would much rather have a Fantome if I am going to have a saison. I would like to find this in bottles to try to compare it to the draught version.

On tap at the Flying Saucer Addison.

Crystal clear golden ale. Light head with little to no lacing. Slighty fruity smell. Couldn't put my finger on the fruit, but assuming the yeast plays a bigger part here. Alcohol was very faint and well disguised. Had a very different taste on the front of the tongue, lots of carbonation bubbling there with alcohol lightly peeking away. The back of the month is where this beer belongs, very warm and inviting. I'd compare it to a Golden Monkey but crisper.
I could drink two to three of these and it would put me where I need to be.

This beer was tasted at the Brick Store Pub.

This beer was poured into a .25L becker glass. The body was hazy straw with a creamy head that laced nicely and left a nice film over the beer. The smell was sweet pilsner and wheat malts with characteristic saison yeast spiciness and a welcome hop aroma. The taste exhibited much of the same qualities with a sweet malt presence up front but the strength of this one and the alcohol associated with it, seems to amplify the malt characteristic and subdue the spiciness from the yeast. The spices and the hops are still present, but they are restrained a bit due to the strength of this beer. The mouthfeel is light enough, however, which is impressive due to the strength. Overall, a great beer, but for me, I find the regular saison or even a Hennepin to be much more enjoyable.

Served in a tulip glass at Hopleaf 1/4/08. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Served a hazy, golden-straw color. No head, no lace, and very still.

S: Mildly fruity, light spice, and a whiff of alcohol.

T: Nice flavors of dirty fruit, and some minor tangyness. Light helping of barnyard funk along with an emerging appearance of alcohol.

M: At the same time, creamy and peppery. Nice.

D: Pretty good. I found the alcohol to be a little intrusive.

Had this on tap at falling rock

Poured amber/orange with 1 pinkie of cream colored head. Very good lacing & above average head retention

S: Apricots, appleskins & a bit of white pepper

T: Caramel & fruityness up front. Crisp apples & plums with a bit of pepper in the middle. Finished with a whisper of funk, more apples & hint of booze

MF: Medium-bodied, slick with moderate carbonation, helps pull the flavors through

Drank really easy for the style & alcohol, I wonder how the bottled version is?? Pretty good from the looks of the reviews I'm seeing. One of the better saisons I've had

Cloudy, solid gold color. Thin white head disappears almost immediately.

Aroma of spices, pepper, bubblegum, and some banana. A bit of yeasty notes as well.

A little tart, yeasty and spicy. Some bubblegum and earthy bitterness.

Full body, low carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden. Still, maybe too big for me, for this particular style. Reminded me of a wheat wine, with spices.

This is just an Amazing Ale from DuPont. Its everything you would expect from a Super Saison and more.
Cloudy pale yellow with a huge billowing head and text book definition lacing.

Aroma is musty spice and lemon with hints of clove and just baked sweet rolls with white icing.
Flavor is an intense blend of subtle not-too-sweet malt and spicy hop. Mild grapefruit, almonds and wet hay mix with soft honey sweet malt that explodes in your mouth with the bursting carb bubbles.
Finish is long and warm, light bready malt and a peppery hop bite.
Excellent balance and drinkability that belies its high ABV.

Refreshing yet full of complex, evolving flavors that goes great with any lighter dish or seafood - but just fine all by itself.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin's, served into a mini Chimay goblet.

Beautiful murky straw color with a nice white head. I've had this beer in the bottle too, and it does not disappoint served in either form.

Lots of things going on. You've got a good amount of fresh straw/grass flavor. Some nice toffee. Hints of spicing with coriander and the like. Maybe a tiny bit of citrus. Wonderful, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Rich tasting. Tastes both thick, yet delicate. Absolutely not cloying. Finish just leaves you begging for another sip. Drinkable? Oh yes - a beer this interesting and so well done is extremely drinkable.

Excellent, excellent saison. And a very unique take on the style. It really is a Winter saison, with more body, stronger flavors and the like. If you haven't had it, go and pick some up. Recommended.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a warm apricot colored body with a nice hazy to it and a creamy thick white head on top. The head last for a long while and forms rings on the glass after each sip.

S- The smell is a soft note of perfume and spicy hops blended together with a black pepper note in the background. As the beer warms there is a very soft note of dry light fruit that comes through the pale malt nose. There is a hint of damp basement or root cellar without the earthiness and a dry honey note aswell.

T- This beer has a spicy hop flavor with a bitterness that is not distinctly from the hops. The flavor of very soft malt with a cotton candy hint also has notes of pears and apricots in the background. The finish has a nice bitterness followed by a slight sweetness that lingers on the tongue.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a creaminess from the head and a tight little fizz in the finish that lightens the beer a bit.

D- The subtle complexities of the malt give way to a nice bitterness that has some good but smooth depth aswell. Very nice complexity and blend of flavors.

Poured from tap into a bulb, this is a hazy golden-straw in color, with a full two-fingered white head of medium duration. Neither quite clear nor genuinely opaque, but slightly hazy due to the chill factor and the suspended yeast. Lacing is evident and clings persistently throughout. Massive, bold nose is quite amazing: pale malts start the show and are quickly overrun by notes of clove, white pepper, and alcohol. Yeast? Yes, there's yeast in the nose too, chewy and bready. Very little apparent bitterness on the nose, but neither is there a sweet, bland maltiness. First sip is a real shocker, a mellow "come hither" malt quality gently coaxes you into a position of unsuspecting submission, next thing you know there's a wave of intense fruit notes: pineapple, cherry, pear, and marzipan, alongside a swelling, hot booziness. Somewhat tropical: throw an umbrella,some cube, and a dash of rum in thisand it would make for an interesting Tiki drink! As it warms there's more evidence of an underlying hop bitterness, with some aromatic and floral notes (pineapple, hibiscus) but they are nigh-well overpowered by the substantial malt backbone and warming alcohol. Moderately full-bodied, with a piquant, zesty sweet/sour pucker on the tongue. Mild grainyness to the malt is perceptible, but is largely masked by the hot alcohol. Well-balanced despite its strength, and should readily appeal to fans of the Belgian Golden and Tripel styles. A very substantial offering, it may also be quite a challenge for some, and is definitely not a beer to take lightly.

On-draft - served in snifter-type glassware.

Appearance: A bit hazy with a thick white head with strength. Color is a bit like orange lemonade. Very inviting.

Smell: Very similar to a citrusy wheat beer with a very malty character. Definitely bready.

Taste: Sweet malt up front, not much in the middle and a peppery hop flavor in the end. Very smooth and clean. This brew hides the ABV very well.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied as expected. Good carbonation and the complexity of flavors feels good.

Drinkability: Quite drinkable for the style, maybe a bit above average overall. Might be hindered a bit by the peppery finish, but I like that.

T- med strong hops with definite citrus/grassy flavor, mellows out quickly. Alcohol well hidden
M- Nice carbonation and medium bodied.

Good, hazy, saison looks. Like a pale yellow honey sun look. maybe the nectar of the Belgian Gods??? Couldn't see any bubbles. Light lacing and small head, but good film throughout. One of the sweetest smelling, yet authentic saison's Ever. Lots of very sophisticated candy smells along with the pale malts and light sytgian hops. Smooth mouthfeel that just begs to be paired with some unique Belgian food like Monkfish. In a creamy garlic sauce with some shallots.

On tap at Monk's in Philly.

Appearance: a hazy yellowish orange color with a thick 2"+ head that stuck around a while. Nice lace paints the glass during the session.

Smell: overall muskiness with very noticeable grass, lemon, and grapefruit.

Taste: a nice barnyard special here as grapefruit, pepper, yeast, grass, and a mild bitterness are wrapped in a super dry musky malt goodness. Spiciness abounds. Alcohol level is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp and very dry from start to finish. The dry spiciness and musky tones lingers long into the aftertaste.

Drinkability: I found this to be nicely refreshing for a dry brew. Easy drinking but the alcohol can creep up on you. Give it a try.

This beer pours a clear golden yellow color, with no head at all.

This beer has a spicy aroma. It is mild though. I can also detect some honey aroma. It has a slight citrus smell to it also. It has a slight yeasty aroma too.

This beer has a mild spicy flavor. I can taste the alcohol, but just slightly. It is very sweet. It has a honey like flavor. It has a very slight citrus flavor also.

This beer goes down smooth, leaving a spicy aftertaste. It is very low in carbonation.

I think this beer would be a decent session beer. It is high in alcohol, so that would be afactor. However, the flavor is plesent. I think I could throw back a few of these. I am happy to have had the chance to have yet another great Dupont beers.

It was a pleasure to try this beer on draught tonight at Toronado in San Francisco, California. Pale yellow in color with a large head of foam. The aroma is distinctly Dupont, subtle, fruity with hints of hay, glue and pear, lots of pear. The aroma isn’t very captivating quite honestly, but the taste, that is another story. Dry, with big, almost sour yeasty/farmhouse notes with big fruit flavors (pear, apple), caramel and this is awfully hoppy by the way. A very good beer. But this is far from being as magical as the 8% Blaugies beers and some of the Fantome beers.

On tap at Monk's Cafe in Philly.

Poured a nice hazy orange-ish color with a small, subtle white head. The beer has a nice spicy, herbal aroma and the nice abv% comes through as well, very strong but appealling aroma.

The taste is spicy and tangy but very drinkable. This is a definite favorite of mine in the farmhouse / saison style.

I had a few of these on tap at My Place in Newtown, Ct.
Nice , gold, slightly cloudy appearance. Nice head to start, but dropped pretty quickly to a small collar.
Smells like clean citrus,yeast, malt and..hay?
Flavor was great ! ...really good balance of sweet , malt, slight fruit, with a medium mouthfeel...just right... then a slightly bitter finish. Just got better as the temperature increased; amazingly good ! This is the best Saison I've had.
Very drinkable...but the ABV is pretty high.
I also tried this one from the 750 bottle...very nice , but missing most of the sweetness, with more alcohol taste coming through.
I would definitely buy another bottle, but can't wait to have it on tap again.


Update 2/10/06....just had this again on tap...this is an amazing brew!!...actually wish it was lower in ABV so I could have a few
more. Avec Les Bon... DOH !!

Without question, one of my favorite beers in all the world; and what else would you expect from the Brasserie Dupont?!?

It's hazy golden body reveals hints of gold at the base of the glass; and it's massive rocky head of off-white foam holds for seemingly forever and leaves impressive washes of lace throughout the entire glass.

The nose is straw-like and grassy, backed by spice and fruit (black pepper, crushed white grapes, a mild waft of citrus, and ground cloves/coriander).

In the mouth it lends a crisp tingle to the tongue, awakening the taste buds and helping to emphasize it's yeasty spiciness and hop bitterness.

In the flavor a pinch of tartness comes through amidst the malt, giving this beer it's exceptional character. It helps to balance the earthy, grassy malt and dry bitterness; and it accentuates the yeasty and hoppy fruitiness, and ping-pongs against the yeasty spiciness leaving it with a good deal of complexity that lends to an impressive drinkability.

Brilliant!!!! This beer works equally well as a short apertif (it is 9.5%! although the alcohol never shows) or a night cap, and it pairs well with an amazing variety of foods and events: it's a bristling contrast to garlic bread that also cuts through to cleanse the palate... it's big enough to withstand the onslaught of a ripe Stilton or Bleu cheese... it works quite well with mussels in an herbed white sauce... and it makes an amazing complement/contrast (can that be?) to spicy and sweet Pad Thai. And as for situations and event, it also works equally well at mom's Thanksgiving dinner or a welcomed Christmas nightcap, and especially as a replacement for Champagne at your New Year's toast!

On-tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena, 7/20/05 at their Christmas Beers & Interesting Winter Warmers in July Fesitval.

Appearance: Beer pours a glowing orange with a light cloudiness and a frothy, white, stiff head. The lacing on the side of the glass is very sticky and open. Excellent head retention on this beauty.

Smell: Remarkably sweet and fruity in the nose. The maltiness is rich but competes to be noticed among the strong fruity esters and white fruit flesh scents (that ominous apple/pear scent in many Belgian beers). Although the scent is there in many Belgians, this one is over the top in strength. Very nice.

Taste: This beer is awsome in complexity and variety of flavors. It is not a one-trick-pony for sure. The malt flavor jumps up first at the front of the beer. It then genlty glides to a set of fruity and phenolic flavors but without any kind of harsh transition. The fruits are vrey citrusy (lime, orange) and crisp and sweet (apple, pear, canteloupe). That is another great thing about this beer, the flavors are not contradictary but rather complimentary. No flavor is harsh but they are mostly bold and well matched flavors. So after the malt gives way to a fruity character, the flavor continues to develop with a whole spice rack full of spicy flavors. There is white pepper, sage, and corriander. I like the spicness. Nice but not overdone. The ending of this beer returns to its malty roots with a strong bready maltiness. That breadiness is also somewhat like a batter on tempura in that it is rich and sticky while still being light. Final flavors that I notice are a light hop bitterness at the end that is still fruit with its bitterness, some candy sugar sweetness, and a straw flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and chewy yet it still has a refreshing wateryness to it (in a good way). It's sticky yet still well carbonated and spritzy with a nice drying quality at the end.

Drinkability: All around an excellent beer. The flavors work well together and are well matched. It's smooth and complex and what a beer should do. Well done. It is just lovely on-tap.

So they say this is 10.5% - wow! The candy sugars in addition to malt make this beer a big one. Color is gorgeous - cloudy with golden color and truly brilliant. Smell is subtle but reminds me of American lager alomst with slight hops.Taste is pleasant and mild despite high alcohol and very much straight and to the point. Low carbonation but full mouthfeel that dissipates to subtle aftertaste. Could drink this beer for a very long time...until asleep.

On tap at monks:

A seasonal beer with good wishes intended...supposedly, according to the owner of the distribution company, this one clocks in at 10.5%. It's only slightly apparent, mostly dictated by the slight aroma and detection of candy sugar. Very little nose detectable - actually gave me a lager-like aroma. This may have been a result of the draft version - neglecting the bottle condition. It was poured a cloudy golden color, rather brilliant, actually. The higher alcohol does not come through in the taste - it is straight and to the point - pleasant and massive in its delivery mechanism: end of the year cheer. The low carbonation compliments the full and dissipating mouthfeel. I could drink this beer until i fall off my rocker.

I just tapped a keg of this rarity about two hours ago, and something struck me right off, a thing happened that is most uncommon: a beer took my breath away.

Looks majestic poured into a St. Bernardus goblet, lush creamy head, hazy pale orange appearance, ...angelic.

Aroma, captivating, airy, light citrus, minor sour tones, vibrant fruit, apricot, peach, lemon, gets bolder by the minute, unfolds tangy-er fruit notes, ...uplifting.
But it's in the taste where I was taken back, and I still don't know if I have language for it, but let us make a valiant effort, anyway.

Fruit floods the mouth, but the body is exceptionally light, almost ethereal...it paints a coating of delicious around the mouth that pulls away like a phantom, the echo of this gorgeous fruit flavor, plump with yeast, lingers, resonates, titillates, entices...another sip is in the offing, but it becomes a gulp, and the swallow is urgent, but the effect is the opposite, a magnificent restfulness overcomes me, a mellow rapture,... it stirs the mind and soul, and quenches thirst along the way.

Each new sip delivers a similar shock, a brand new spank to the senses, a reacquaintance with this magical feeling.

Body is light, but the flavor is powerful and pure, and the finish is long, fruity, perfectly smooth. I laugh at the 9.5% but feel it creeping in as I drain the glass.
Hey, maybe it's just the mood I'm in, but this glass of beer has an absolutely elevating effect. The strength eventually enters into the flavor like a wily snake through a grassy field....lightly spicy, too, to match the fruit...call me a sucker if you must, but I feel my soul has been cracked open, freed and sent aloft, metamorphosized, like hearing new beautiful music for the first time, have a soft spot touched and felt that shiver...

Amazing beer. Not good, not great, amazing! Utterly lovely.
A great gift from Dupont. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Took in the views during my constitutional with this one on 2/20/2005. 10.5-oz. goblet at Redbones.

Somewhat loose, Claritin head with some big bubbles on edges that stick and jab with each other. Hazy, yellow hue that looses you in its swirling. Kind of balky hop presence on nose with a candied lemon skin gargle. Very pleasant sweet spring grass on mouth with just the smallest hint of tart yeast that just echoes, and reminds me of childhood summer days and promises of future adventures. Husky wheat permeates the mouthfeel, but not overtly. Balanced; very good.
