Definitely one of my top 10 brews, especially lately. Saison Dupont is, in my opinion, the standard by which other saisons should be judged.

The beer pours out a beautiful slightly cloudy golden yellow tinged with apricot. The monstrous, rocky, snow white head seems to challenge the effects of time and easily lasts until the very last sip, leaving hefty clumps of foam sticking to the sides of the glass.

This sample might have been a bit to cool initially but some warming allowed the yeastiness and peppery spiciness to express themselves through a veil of earthy hop resins. Very enticing. I take my first sip.

A fine bead ushers in this medium bodied but firmly textured and drying beer. Up front, notes of malt and peppery mint saunter by and are followed by hints of pears and bananas. Quickly they are dominated by a solid earthy and leafy bitterness that reminds one of autum (that's why I seem to enjoy this so much at this time of year). A long and elegant aftertaste lingers 'til the next sip and you discover what a superb beer this is all over again.

Thank god the SAQ still has some bottles of this on their shelves. At $6 a magnum, it's probably the best beer deal going these days, and with the SAQ strike going on now I better enjoy this one fully... it might be awhile before I get another bottle.

Even a deliberately delicate pour on this fresh bottle of hazy gold brew leads to a vigorous bright white head, taking several moments to settle into a manageable frothy cap that endured the entire session and produced intensive lacing waning to some lingering patches as the glass wares down. An herbal spicy aroma leads to a pleasantly moderate mix of malt and hops, sweet at first with a touch of sour citrus and mild bitterness finishing the flavor. Not terribly strong nor tremendously interesting, yet absolutely delicious all the same! Quite well suited for its intended purpose, a hot summer's day.
