2012 vintage...

A: Pours a light cloudy lemon straw with one and a half fingers of pure white head. The foam takes a bit to settle, and there is some decent lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is funk, light citrus, slightly salty, and little peppery. I get some barnyard funk, stinky feet, and quality cheese out of it as well.

T: It starts out sweet with some citrus tartness. The get a big kick of barnyard funk in the middle where it gets a thin veil of pepper bite. The finish is bitter and a bit stinging.

M: Light bodied beer. Sweet and watery to start, but the yeast drives to the end, where it's bitter and ultimately, a bit dry.

O: This is a decent beer, but I have had many other Saisons that I enjoy much more. I don't think I'll be returning to this beer in the future.

My ratings say it all. This is THE quintessential saison by which all other saisons are judged. Under style guidelines for saison....it should simply read "go drink a saison dupont".

A- Beautiful cloudy straw gold color with a massive soapy/frothy head!

S- Truly the pinnacle of this beer. Zesty citrus fruit esters with some grassy malts that blend together with a funky belgian yeasty smell that leaves you with something you just cant put your finger on, but you know you love it!

T- Just like it smells. Zesty citrus with a hearty pilsner malt backbone that blends together just right.

M- Second best part of this beer. Lots of carbonation but also a dry zest in this finish leaving your palate with a lingering "can't put your finger on it" taste that just makes you want to have more.

Overall- This is the most classic saison you can have as far as flavor and smell. Although it is high in alcohol for a "traditional" saison like was made in olden farming days of Belgium. But, nonetheless it is everything a saison was meant to be, which is: Thirst quenching, easy to drink, and extremely tasty. Truly one of the best beers out of belgium.
