Lovely foamy crown. Brilliant golden color. Highly aromatic. Tangy and sour and really lively in the mouth. Foams like crazy on the pour. Effervescent. Anyway now I know what all the Saison Dupont hype is about.

Nice appearance, of a golden ocher color and a nice bubbling whitey foam.
Really spicy one. Sweet banana and cloves in the smell, with a lot of earthly tones.
In the mouth is even more earthly and is possible to feel a nice bitterness from the moment taste it till way after you swallow it.
Great feel, somewhat effervescent in the mouth.

Ideal Saison. When I think: "man, I could go for a saison on this hot day." This is what I am hoping for.
Giant sudsy head, very strong smell of citrus, particularly lemon, traces of herby spices.
Taste is the same but with a rich oat/wheat taste as well, and a slight funkiness followed immediately by a dry, crisp finish.
It is light and refreshing yet so complex.
A hefty amount of carbonation which is very appreciated.
My only complaint would be the body, I actually wish it was a little thinner.
Best light beer I've ever had.

Wild yeasts, barnyard earthiness. With a distinct non-hop bitter aftertaste.

Hazy and orange colour with a billowing head sporting some pretty great retention.

Nose is kind of vegetal, with a good amount of grassy citrus, and slightly funky -- kind of like stale weed but more citrusy. A decent amount of peppery phenols are present as well.

Taste is vegetal and earthy, with lemony citrus sweetness and pepper. Crisp and sweet malts play an earthy background to notes of citrus, herbs, and pepper.

Mouth feel very smooth upfront, with a very earthy (slightly mineral) and very dry finish. Just a little funk present throughout the end.

Overall not my favorite saison but a great and classic example of the style; definitely unique.
