Cloudy gold with a thick white head. Aromas of lemongrass and gentle grainy malt with a dash of earth and yeast. Tastes like gritty barley and wheat with a mild spicy earthiness that goes well with its soft malty mouth feel. Mild earthy and fruity finish with another dash of yeast.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into three Saison Dupont glasses.

Golden amber and seemingly clear, Dupont pours with an "off-the-hook" Belgian head that took forever to settle and left killer lacing on the glasses. Perfect looks. Upon closer inspection, very fine yeast is seen suspended in the liquid.

The aroma is dominated by hops - herbal notes (Euro hops), spices, and a little funk. Lemony notes upon warmth.

Not nearly as complex as Fantôme in taste, the hops overwhelm this one. Malt-yeast complexity wavers; although some fruity esters, and citrus character that's not from the hops, are felt upon warmth.

Finishes real dry and is always crisp with high carbonation... nice! Very drinkable with moderate alcohol, I quite like this one although I would take Fantôme over it. Any day.

A very light straw colored brew with a massive, never-dying white head on top. The glass is covered in sticky sheets of lace as you go through it. Yeasty aroma with citrus hints and fruity sweetness. It also has some pale malts in there.

A very crisp brew for the summer. Citrus notes make it refreshing, and the tingly carbonation is great, but it is at times overpowering. The flavor is not at all that impressive. It has a nice pale grainy character with lots of yeast flavor. The mouthfeel and drinkability are the real winners in this brew.

750 ml bottle dated 2007 poured in to a goblet.

hazy, clear golden with a thick white head.

Smell is sweet funk. Some pepper and citrus.

Taste is slightly sour and spicy while still a little funky.

Great tasting, drinking beer that is a complete classic.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with huge fluffy white head. Retention is very decent, some sticky lacing left behind.

Very earthy aroma with a decent amount of spice to it. Cloves smell is slightly dominate up front along with a bit of pepper. A somewhat earthy or grassy aroma sits just behind that.

Taste starts with a good amount of maltiness up front which is soon followed by a very grassy hop flavor. Slight lemon zest flavor but the fruit stops there. Much less fruit flavor than anticipated. Very balanced with the malt and hops seemingly tied together with the spiciness.

Very crisp and dry. Light bodied with very lively carbonation.

Tremendously drinkable. Terrific beer for a warm summer day, flavors would also work very well during the crisp fall weather. Very enjoyable.

Pours the color of hay with a masssive white crown on top. It just came off the truck today, so I don't know if that has anything to do with the Everest of foam or not. Some sulfur going on in the nose, which lightly detracts from the abundance of earth and barnyard packed within the walls of my glass. Crisp and clean, very lively on the palate. The egginess dies down shortly but never quite goes away, not that this is a bad thing in this particular beer. I'm lovin' it. Ba da ba ba ba m*the^fu@#$r. Rustic farmhouse flavors to the max; finishing with a note of zesty lemon and peppery hop spice.

Sheer elegance. Try to make sure and get a fresh one, or at least one from the back of the shelf as far away from light as possible, I think it can skunk a little.
