5/5 rDev +19.3%
Saison Dupont is standard of the style and a classic. All beer people should taste this at least once.
It pours a nice light yellow with a perfect white head (laces nicely in a glass). PLenty of big citrusy dry notes in the nose, then you take that first sip - Wow! Super yeasty, crisp and dry flavor and a nice finish. A world-class super-beer.

Scores upped to all 5's. Just a flawless, world-class beer. The standard bearer of the style. Possibly my number one desert island beer. Just untouchable stuff.
2003-dated 750ml bottle
Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a massive, pure white, meringue-like head that explodes every time new liquid is introduced to the glass. Cobweb-like lacing. The aroma is grassy and earthy, with honey, peppery spiciness, phenolics, musty yeast, oranges and apricots, and flour-like malt. The flavor begins phenolic, with some white pepper spiciness. Midway, the other flavors foretold in the aroma appear: honey, musty and funky yeast, citrus (orange peel and lemon zest), and bready malt. All of these ride atop a rustic, earthy backbone. Hints of leather, iron, and hops towards the end. The finish is extremely dry and completely washes the palate clean. Crisp and clean in body, with a fairly light mouthfeel and huge acidic undercurrent. This fresh bottle is a bit young and rough compared to some of the older bottles of this Ive had. Still one of the best examples of the saison style a classic brew.
