11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A-The bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a slight golden shimmer. The head was a full three fingers of creamy, thick off-white foam. Strong carbonation keeps the head alive for quite a while.
S-The small is mostly yeast and funk. There is touch of spice, some lemon, and other citrus notes in there. Not overly doughy or sweet. I thought the smell was a real highlight.
T-Mostly follows the smell. You get a yeasty, funky biscuit flavor, but the brew is not doughy like some yeasty (Belgian, especially) beers. There is a nice light undertone of spice, and a hint of lemon and other light fruits. I barely noticed the alcohol (unlike, for example, Tank 7, which I also enjoy).
M-The carbonation is very noticeable...big, chewy bubbles, but the beer is not heavy or oily. Definitely a summer drinker.
O-A nice archetype of a saison, which is one of my favorite styles of beer. The Dupont is drinkable, but complex enough to hold your interest.
