A bottle into a tulip style glass. A grabbed a small bottle of this sucka. I have not had this in years.

Saison Dupont, the pinnacle of the style, Saison gold with some light yellow twinges on the sides. A nice bubble bath of frothy suds grace the top, the clinging to the glass came in globs. A nice amount of activity rising up. Lively beer.

Smell is a nice mix of floral and grassy scents balanced out with light fruit and honeysuckle. Pale malt comes up with light bread in a toasty way. I get some melon and apple, and some more hay with warming. Straight and to the point.

The smaller darker bottle may have fared better during it's travels than the standard big green bottle, I enjoyed this more than in the past. Nice simple saison with no bells or whistles, but bif flavor. A mix of begian yeast, earthy hops, a small spice characteristic, and light fruits. As it warms these blend expertly.

Saison Dupont has a nice light body with active carb. The flavor rolls through the mouth linger a bit and dissipate, leaving a mild grassy taste afterwards. Easy to take down, with the light alcohol, easy to take down quicker. Easy drinking right here. If it was available in an affordable six pack this would be a no brainer.

On-tap, served in a tulip

A hazy golden color with a fluffy paper white cap. Recedes in crater-like fashion, clinging to the sides the whole way down.

Aroma of flowers, banana, wet hay, clove, barnyard, rotten wood, and a touch of lemon. A touch of grassyness lays low. The barnyard funk is the most prominent.

On the palate, a soft fruitiness with some funk hits you first. Wet hay and lemons leading to some spice before some melon and barnyard come in for the finish. A touch of lingering funk/hoppy bitterness.

Medium body, smooth, and lush. Dry finish with lingering funk.

This is a damn fine saison. Classic profile with an added dose of welcome funk.

12.7oz. bottle poured into a tulip

A- big smoke when it's uncorked, pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a HUGE white soapy, pillowy head. Beautiful.

S- Initially has some skunky aromas, but they dissipate. Pears, apples, belgian, spicy funk that reminds me of the way my Grandmother's basement used to smell.

T- A very well balanced pear, apple, yeasty funk, with a light bitterness on the back end. Nothing is in your face, but it all blends together nicely, and make for a complex and refreshing brew.

M- Light to medium, nice active carbonation (it's bottle conditioned after all). No metallic, or off putting tastes that translate over to the mouthfeel

O-Very nice, and very refreshing. Would make a great beer for a hot summer day.

I had this brew served in a bottle to me at the Farmhouse Restaurant at 300 Delaware Street, River Market district, KCMO. Highly recommended restaurant. Anyway, it was one of the few beers on the menu that I have not had. The barkeep and waiter we very knowledgeable about beer, which I appreciated.

Appearance - pours a clear, golden yellow color with a soapy, bubbly off white two finger head that leaves excellent lacing on the pint glass. Carbonation can be observed in the brew easily. Looks like a good Saison/Farmhouse should.

Smell - Apples with some zing, funk, floral and grapefruit notes as well. There is certainly a funky, zesty aroma. I like it.

Taste - Much like the nose. The fruits and floral tastes dominate the first parts of the brew, with the funky zest coming in at the middle and end of the drink. Barnyard and grass also make appearances on the palate.

Mouthfeel - well carbonated, light bodied, effervescent. Funk stays with you through the end of the drink. Very clean and crisp. Awesome.

Overall - I really enjoyed this brew. While it isn't quite on the level of Boulevard Saison Brett, you can't expect that out of all Saisons. This is a very good beer, highly recommended to Saison and Farmhiuse drinkers.
