Pours a mildly hazy, light orange color with a huge, billowing white head. Fine-bubbled and long lasting, leaving plenty of sheet lacing on the glass.
Lemony, fruity, yeasty and zesty all describe the nose of this beer well. Grassy hops smell like hallertau to me. The overall aroma is kind of like a freshly opened bag of sour patch kids candy, maybe a few SweeTarts thrown in there as well. Just a bit of the expected farmhouse funkiness. The best saison I have ever smelled.
Refreshingly tart with a light malt presence and grassy hop notes. I could almost use a bit more funk in here, but then it would not be as refreshingly delicious as it is right now. Tastes a bit like chewing on a fresh hibiscus spring flower. Terrific beer, A+ all the way. I have bought more than a few Saison DuPonts over the years, and it seems to be a pretty fragile beer, as some off-flavors can make an appearance in some bottles. Why do they continue to use these green bottles?! But there is nothing quite so good as a perfect bottle of this liquid nectar. Nearly the perfect beer.
