Ooooh dangerous--this one is.

Pours a fabulous gold with a luscious head of beautiful living froth. No lace. Smell is of a well-made Belgian--clearly floral and gentle but potent behind the scenes. The taste doesnt let down either, I can clearly see why this is regarded so highly. Smell has that pungent I am stronger than I taste character. Very nice. Mouthfeel is as smooth as can be for a beer of this complexity. While I might not fully trust my fellow BAs as a rule on food, I can definitely trust them on beers. Good scoring guys/girls. I can only second that emotion

Poured a hazy gold color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Earthy aroma, with some citrus and yeast as well. Spicy coriander, orange peel, yeast, and alcohol noticeable in the taste. Mouthfeel was slightly carbonated. I think I like McKenzie's better.

1998 Vintage!!!
When I first poured the bottle it was a strw yellow with a teeny tiny bubbeled froathy white head, and a bazillion bubbles climbing the walls of my glass. When I finally got the rest into my glass, I got all the yeast. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing. It has the horsey Belgian smell, with some Granny Smith apples thrown in for good measure. The taste is great. Pepper and apples and doughy yeast goodness. The after taste has a light lingering alcohol thing going on that works well. I would drink this everyday if I weren't buzzing so hard now!!!

2004 edition.

Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a big foamy head that holds well and leaves a moderate amount of lace in my chalice.

Smell is incredible. It's got a yeasty funk in it, to be sure, but there are way too many fruits to count in there: crisp apple and pear, some peachiness, hints of lemon, orange, and tangerine to go with a light coriander and honey smell. Quite good.

Flavor is quite fruity with the citrus coming to the fore....lots of lemon and orange, but also good doses of apple, yeast, pear, and a sharp tartness that really makes things dance on the tongue. The alcohol is well hidden, but kind of peaks out as it warms through the dry finish.

The mouthfeel is incredibly light and just perfect....it feels like my tongue is doing a little dance with the beer. Combined with the fruity tartness of the flavor, this is quite an effect.

If this is 9.5%, it's the most drinkable beer I've ever had. The alcohol barely, and I mean barely, comes through in the finish. It's incredible.

Overall: Quite a nice saison. Just exquisitely crafted and extremely delicate for its heft. I'm really glad I found this one.

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.

Pours a very strong straw color, almost a light orange, with a 4 finger head that falls very slowly. The nose is just divine. Lots of lemony citrusyness, a light tart character and a blast of spicey and a very light barnyard character. I like it a lot. The flavor is really good. Orangey lemon citrus flavors hit, but they are creamy as well. A nice blast of spiceyness from the yeasties really comes through as well. There is a slight tartness that stays on the tongue on the finish. I really like it. Very clean and refreshing...crisp as well. There is also a slight drying quality here as well. No hint at all of the alcohol. 9.5% has to be a lie. The feel is moderate to thick with a moderate carbonation. Very refreshing for a big brew. Drinkability could not be better. I'm finding this beer is disappearing rather quickly from my glass. No alcohol presence. Very good flavor and nose. All around solid beer.

Pours a golden color with a an extremely tall puffy head that has good retention and leaves lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma has lots of fruit esters. Some slight Belgian funk as well. Little bit of sweetness. Smells really good. The flavor has a lot of light fruit and a lot of spices. Little bit of funk in the flavor. Quite a bit going on here. Very tasty. The mouthfeel is light, but has some creaminess as well. The drinkability is really good for such high alcohol. It's very warming as you drink it.

I had this on tap last month at the Hop Leaf and was quite blown away with it. When I came across it in the store the next day there was only 2 bottles, which me and my friend each grabbed one. This was a corked and caged 750ml bottle with 2004 on the cork. Cloudy straw yellow body with a full head of white fluffy head. Great retention as the head rides out the session leaving thick sheets of lace coating the glass after each sip. Big fruit notes of apples, pears and other fruits come up in the nose with a light sweetness. Some peppery hops in the mix as are a few other spices. Notes of yeast and a slight funk are also present. Flavor also has a big fruit component with a variety of lighter fruits mingling with the grassy hops and black pepper. A bit biscuity, good yeast flavors and a touch of the old funk really bring this together nicely. Where is the alcohol? Fairly full mouthfeel with a very crisp feel. Bubbly on the tongue and quite refreshing. Great drinkability as well, I could drink this all day or until that sneaky 10% shows itself. Fantastic brew big ass Saison or Belgian Pale ale. Must try if you enjoy the style and come across this.

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.

One of my favorites and oh so hard to get!

I brought back this 2003 bottling from Belgium. It was one of the three beers I was determined to find when over there.

Poured into a Duvel tulip it shows a hazed golden orange color with a BIG foamy yellow-tinged white head that laces the glass rather nicely.

Smell is complex with may esters and phenols. I get spices and cloves, banana and minty lime, lemon cream and pepper, dark caramel and figs. Wow! More like a tripel with a pepper spice kick than a Strong Pale Ale.

Taste is Dupont product for sure. I get that green hoppy skunk bite (in a pleasant way) with honeyed bananas, white pepper, figs, and who knows what light spices (even though the bottle says there are none in it - must be the yeast). Truly amazing.

Mouthfeel is the best bar none. It is so creamy that it almost feels more like a mousse than liquid.

Extraordinarily drinkable until I fall on the floor from too many!

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.

The beer disembarks the 750ml cork and caged green bottle a shining gold with a prodigious creamy bright white head that lingers for quite sometime, and the lace forms a thick and clinging blanket upon the glass. Nose has a tangy spiciness, over ripe fruit, seemed to be a mix of bananas and pineapples, crisp and clean, hints of clove also noticed, maybe even a bit of fusel alcohol, a complex one at any rate, start is sweet and the grain profile noticeable, the top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is caustic, hops are pleasantly spicy, vinous, devastatingly dry and the aftertaste welds itself to your palate, and the 9.5 percent ABV warmed my tummy noticeably, a great beer for a Sunday afternoon.

750ml bottle obtained via trade with bigbeerdrinka. Thanks for the opportunity... Corked and caged presentation, 2004 vintage according to the cork.

Poured into a Rapscallion glass, formed a 2+" eggshell head over the effervescent golden brew. Head keeps growing and growing, due to rejuvenation from all the bubbles. Finally settles down with about an inch of marshmallowy foam, with stunning lace coating the glass. The lace actually looks like real lace with alternating patterns of the foamy remnants. Aroma is lightly spicy with sweet maltiness. Taste is wow, creamy sweetness followed by shots of spicing, with a crisp, dry close. Mouthfeel and drinkability are both excellent. A great saison, even better than i was expecting.

Bottle: Poured a hay blonde looking beer with a huge white foamy head with great retention. Aroma is dominated by the floral yeast with some good strong malt also present. Yeast is very noticeable as you start sipping this beer and malt mix with spices also become more apparent as you drink. Funky aspect is quite present thought not as much as the Veille Saison Dupont. Still very enjoyable and alcohol is not detectable.

You absolutely know you have poured a quality beer when you find yourself forming the massive downy head into recreations of classic Greek sculpture with your tongue. Lose yourself for awhile in fascinating aromas of lavender, citrus orchards in full bloom, honey drizzled crepes and 12th century stone structures. This is the reason we drink, for playful contrasts of sweet mercurial grain and fields of bitter, bracing grass and lively alcohol with no heat. This is the reason we drink, for heady experience.

What magic has touched this liquid to make it so near perfect? Is this proof that the artisan's hand is more powerful than the chemist's figuring, the devotion to time and place more potent than industrial consistency?

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.

This was on tap to day at Red Bones. The color was hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma has candy notes along with a combination of citrus and pear. A white sheet of lace was prevalent down the side of the glass. The taste has a nice tartness. More of the pear and citrus. A lot more candy sweetness. This to me was a cross between a Saison, and a Belgian Trippel. It had good characters of both. A mild alcohol warming and hop bite. Slick mouth feel. Very drinkable.

I was surprised to find this on tap at Pix last night. I was further that the glass that was brought to me when I ordered was massive and full. There must have been a full 20 oz worth of Belgian goodness. But the waitress apologized for serving in the wrong glass, which was really ok with me. The beer looked quite attractive in the Duvel chalice. Murky golden with a tufted halo of brownish curling foam.

The aroma was immediately fruity. Apple cider left in the bottom of the press to long hidden in one of the horse stalls. Funky in all the right ways.

The taste was adequately malty but was really highlighted by all the various natural orchard flavors. Yeast gave it a bready base and rather bright apple sweetness. The body was mixed between sweet fullness and a somewhat thick and chunky musty malt.

All in all it was quite terrific, but the 20 oz may have been a tad too much as I couldn't bring myself to finish it. It went well with the rosemary chocolate we had as well.

Poured for me at the back bar of Monk's.

A powdery yellow liquid greets me, with a very tiny coating of bubbles, which soon fades to a transparent film. Pretty.

Smell is rock candy (candi/invert sugar, I'm sure), dried papaya, orange peel, candied clementines, and a mist of saison yeast.

Taste explodes in the mouth with deeply candied and preserved fruits -- the aformentioned orange and papaya, gritty brown pears, rotting bananas, and glorious, glorious golden malt. Just unbelieveably delicious constantly evolving as the flavors, many as they are, develop and blossom on the palate. As it gets warm, these sensations only increase.

Mouthfeel is wonderful, pillow soft, keeping the dense liquid from ever becoming too cloying. There is a delightful breeziness here.

Drinkability is very good, although as I near the end of the glass, I consider that one, and maybe two, would be an appropriate sample.

All in all, a fantastic brew fresh (and I imagine a little age on a few bottles would be delightful as well). -- a saison on steroids, an imperial saison, whatever you want to catagorize it as, I call it only one thing: Delicious.

A world-class brew.

Sampled from a 750, though the lable was different than the one pictured above. A hazy golden amber colored brew topped by a dollop of magnificent pure white head that laces beautifully. Intriguing aromas of fresh cut grass, musty hay and barnyard, lemon/lime, spicy yeast and a touch of fruity hops. Superb and complex flavors of contrasting sweet and sour. Lots of green grass, lemon, a variety of spice including coriander, pepper, ginger, orange peel, and clove. Fruitry notes of tart apple, pear, and faint banana pull me in further. Deep and complex. Refreshing and satisfying. I wish I had a bottle to myself. Thanks to Bruno for sharing this rare treat!

2004 cork date, Sampled January 2005
As I pour this beer into my glass I get an aroma that is enticingly sharp, grassy and herbal all together. The beer is a lightly hazy straw gold color, it is topped by a frothy, rocky off pale white head. Ooh, the aroma is quite nice it has aromatic notes of bergamot, fresh cut hay, wild flowers, lemon zest, vanilla, and perhaps a soft woodiness. The aroma is quite smooth and almost mellow in character, though it is quite complex and intriguing.

This beer starts out smooth but then starts to pick up a sharpness in the middle, but then finishes with a lingering malty smoothness. This beer is quite tasty, it does not have the complexity of the Saison Dupont, but it is still quite tasty and much more mellow and smooth tasting. The flavors that meld together in this beer are quite nice, I get notes of lemon, pepper, ginger, a tannic woodiness, and some sharp herbal notes. This beer has a really nice flowery, almost nectar like, quality to it that is just so smooth and satisfying. It really hides its alcohol quite well. This beer is quite tasty and is really growing on me more and more as I drink it.

In the end this is just a wonderful mix of flavors, textures and aromas. This beer is quite good, and is perhaps my second favorite (after the Saison) from this incredible brewery.

This holiday Belgian pours a light golden color with a nice thick, fluffy white head that holds for quite some time. Good amount of bubbles rising to the top. Smell is a bit strong on the yeast side with noticeable amount whole hop flowers in there. Taste is really complex and nicely balanced. There's a slightly sweet honey flavor in here and a nice little peppery kick. The spice is an additive and doesn't overtake the beer at all. The base is definitely the floral hops which really hold the whole beer together yet they're not overdone either. Nice little fruit yeast flavor in there and the finish gets slightly bitter and lingers. My only real fault with this beer is that I notice a salty flavor that hits towards the finish and the more I drink the more noticeable it gets. Other than that this was a really good holiday saison.
