Jumping right back into the Saisons with one of the most well-known examples of the style in Saison Dupont. 750 mL bottle poured into a tulip glass. Light golden color with a fizzy head that forms quickly and dissipates almost as fast. I get a lot of sour tartness in the nose, with a white grape funkiness going on along with some slight skunkiness. This one has been in my fridge since purchase, but I get this earthy basement smell out of it. First taste takes me by surprise, but in a good way. Mouthfeel is nice and dry, with a good, almost sour bitterness. Taste is light and lemony, with some earthy hops giving it a nice musky feel. Towards the end of the drink I get this pepper sweet - almost green pepper - note. This thing would be great on a warm summer day. It's not sweet like other saisons can be, and the bone dry finish literally makes the mouth water. Overall a very nice saison and one I won't be afraid to reach for in the future.
