Poured into a tulip.

The archetype of the style. Beautiful beer! Funky flavors and aroma are present along with some spice flavors. Subdued phenols are present, but nothing over the top.

A- Funky nose when you pop the top on this one. Smells like old leather and funky Brett. Mild spicy smells from the yeast.

A- Beautiful light to medium golden color. Thick white head that lasts for a long time.

F- Funky flavors come out immediately. Gentle phenolic flavors and mild spicy flavors. The malt takes a backseat on this one.

M- High carbonation. light without being thin. Crisp and cleansing on the palate.

O- Love it. The classic saison and for a reason. Easy to put away, but complex enough to make you think about the flavors.

A - golden hue, lightly hazy, with a nice amount of fluffy white head.

S - on the nose I get citrus, and a little farmhouse funk.

T - citrus, hay, a little grass, and funk with citrus.

M - smooth, yet there is enough substance to it to make it a little chewy.

O - one of the better saisons I've had. I highly recommend trying this if you have not already.

750ml green bottle was skunked. While most will hang this on the retailer, Specs in this case, there's absolutely no excuse for brewers to use green glass!!

Naturally, the appearance wasn't affected by the light exposure, but everything else was. Upon first opening, I could tell the beer was bad. There are hints that there was something good in there at one point, but not any more. I finished a half pint and dumped the rest.

Never again!!

Poured this bottle against my Spring Hopper Saison as comparison.

A: Golden straw hue with excellent clarity. Active carbonation bubbles lifting to the fluffy white head. Pours very carbonated. Homebrew shares golden straw hue but clarity is hazy with fairly active carbonation. Dupont wins on giant foam head.

S: Dank and skunky per wife's comments. A little yeast and grassy / earthy notes. Homebrew is more robust / complex. Homebrew has more apparent notes of cloves and yeast breadiness to aroma. *I have no sense of smell.

T: That dank / funky aroma carries over nicely to flavors. Citrus, herbal, grassy, slight breadiness, and complimented very well by light hop bitterness notes sprinkled throughout. Sessionable as alcohol is hidden very well. Similar to smell - Homebrew is slightly more robust / filling with a more "homebrew" flavor. Yeast / breadiness flavors are also more apparent. Dupont finishes much dryer, lighter, and slightly more sessionable.

O: Dupont is the benchmark of a historical and inspiring beer. Great for the seasoned beer nerd or rookie just wanting something drinkable. Sessionable, well balanced, and just enough complexity to make it interesting & fun. Dupont is a legend but I think Spring Hopper Saison held up well and gives inspiration for the future!
