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

75cl bottle best before 01/2016.

A: Hazy golden orange-colored brew with a two finger white head that settles slowly. Leaves good yet irregular lacing.

S: Starts with a big wave of peppery yeast and lightly toasted malt. Very faint herbal hop presence combines with a nice citrus character to add some depth.

T/M: Well-balanced with a bit of a bitter finish. Solid medium body and a vibrant, almost effervescent carbonation. Still crisp and refreshing despite its size, this beer hides the alcohol very well. Touch of lemony tartness.

O: Accidentally chilled this one too much and had to wait a few minutes before I could really start appreciating the taste and aroma. Achieves a good balance between heft and delicacy. I'd definitely pick this up again, though I'd probably save it for a milder day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

ST: 750ml poured into a snifter. Bottle lists ABV but does not list DBD. 2011 vintage.

A: Cloudy golden orange with a huge finger length white fluff head. It has great retention and lives a thick ring of lacing.

S: Piney hops, earth, sour fruit, stone, funky yeast. citrus.

T: Sour fruit, orange, spice, funky yeast, bread, and lemon.

M: Medium and dry

O: Lots of nice sunny fruit joins with stone, earth, and a nice spicy finish. This beer has some alcohol warmth, but the alcohol is well blended. A very enjoyable beer to sip, but it is a bit heavy despite the carbonation zing.

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

the 2011 vintage, poured from a 750 ml into a tulip.

A: poured a beautiful bright golden yellow, that was very hazy. Had a very high pitched pop of the cork and the poor had tremendous head. Literally had 4+ finger head. A lovely fluffy white pillow.

S: A nice funky aroma with mild sour fruit aromas. Definitely a step up from the regular saison dupont.

T: its nice and citrusy with a bit of funk in the after taste. its got a little bite of hop in it too.

M: Nice and sparkly like a champagne, a tad sour in a good way. no way can I taste the 9.5% abv. But it leaves a little warming afterwards.

O: Definitely a kickass saison. I know some people don't like the "skunky" aromas, but once you sip it, its nothing of the sort. Can't wait to try another one in a few months.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Fills the glass with a clear golden yellow body and crowned with a huge rocky and dense sticky white head.

Aroma hits you with a dose of yeasty funk right off the bat. Slightly fruity and a bit grainy as well. However, a bit of skunky aroma adds some light-struck suspicion. A brown bottle sure would be nice but I'm able to enjoy it nonetheless.

A bit tart with a healthy dose of musty funk upfront greet the palate. Fruity with some apple and grape notes alongside a nice biscuity malt body.

Mouthfeel is bubbly and effervescent with a nice crisp finish. Overall, a tasty saison but the slight hint of skunk throws it off just a bit. Still however, happy to enjoy as I ring in the new year.
