My ratings say it all. This is THE quintessential saison by which all other saisons are judged. Under style guidelines for saison....it should simply read "go drink a saison dupont".

A- Beautiful cloudy straw gold color with a massive soapy/frothy head!

S- Truly the pinnacle of this beer. Zesty citrus fruit esters with some grassy malts that blend together with a funky belgian yeasty smell that leaves you with something you just cant put your finger on, but you know you love it!

T- Just like it smells. Zesty citrus with a hearty pilsner malt backbone that blends together just right.

M- Second best part of this beer. Lots of carbonation but also a dry zest in this finish leaving your palate with a lingering "can't put your finger on it" taste that just makes you want to have more.

Overall- This is the most classic saison you can have as far as flavor and smell. Although it is high in alcohol for a "traditional" saison like was made in olden farming days of Belgium. But, nonetheless it is everything a saison was meant to be, which is: Thirst quenching, easy to drink, and extremely tasty. Truly one of the best beers out of belgium.

Pored from a 375ml bottle into a Riedel Stemmed Tulip whilst watching the Soccer World Cup.
This is an awesome ale.
It poured a cloudy golden colour with a two finger head.
Initially it smelled herbaceous which I guess is a good thing for a farmhouse ale.
The first taste revealed the high yeast and almost 'strong ale' characteristics.
As the beer warmed in the glass it started to open up in complexity. I could detect citrus hints of grapefruit and honey on the mid pallet and some pepper on the back pallet.
The beer had a creamy mouth feel with a dry finish.
I can see why this beer in one of the bench mark saisons. I am glad I had the opportunity to drink it. If you like this style then you need to put it on your must drink list.

This was good. Dry and herbal and somewhat spicy. Straw colored, visible floaters, slightly hazy. White head with persistent lace. Hops were a nice backdrop to some fruitiness and malt. Very clean and crisp. Somewhat of an apple cider crispness in the taste and slight apple in the nose. Pretty drinkable, alcohol pretty well hidden. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall this was good and interesting.
