4.55/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750ml bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a fingers worth of fluffy white foam on top that takes a while to settle.

Smell: Heavy yeast/funk at the beginning followed by some hay/grass and tart sour fruit.

Taste: Belgian yeast with some nice funkiness. Tart sour apple with a semi-dry grassy hay aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp and really refreshing.

Drinkability: An often overlooked Saison by me, but for the price and everyday availability, this is a real gem. This beer goes down great on a hot day such as today or even a cold winter evening.

4.33/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A fluff white head, specks of beige from yeast particles, golden yellow body with cloudiness and carbonation.

A fruity estery aroma from the apple trees or grape vines...surprisingly boozy and filled with a sour yeasty quality.

The flavor is high esters, high apple, really reliant on the yeast. Sour but not too much so, a touch astringent and very bitter on the back end, possibly from the pucker of the yeast. While not sounding delicious, the parts come together for an awesome ride.

High carbonation, Saison, blah blah. Like it should be, I guess.

Fairly tasty and pretty boisterous. I have had some tame Saisons, I think beer companies that produce the style are afraid to produce them true to form...Dupont is unafraid.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

My favorite beer of all time. The standard benchmark for the Saison style. Highly recommended.

Pours lemony-yellow with a huge rocky, three finger massive head, leaving lacing all over the glass. Very inviting. Aroma is grassy/hoppy. Flavor is dry/herbal-hoppy/spicy with a very dry finish. Spicy notes in the aftertaste and a slight alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing, easy to drink. Agian, my favorite beer, all around.

Very nice, although I thought the Foret was a little better. This one is more delicate, and a bit more subtle. Nonetheless, this is a wonderful beer (and goes great with food). Nice foamy head, which continues to coat the beer and glass all the way to the finish. Great balance, perfect with appetizers.

4.03/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

The appearance of this one is a hazy gold. The head is one finger with a white color. Light lacing on the sides, medium alcoholic legs.

I can smell Belgian yeast funk, lemon peel, wheat grass. Smells are very medium to an effect where they blend very well and are not over powering.

The taste is a Belgian yeast paired many citrus flavors, like orange peel and an earthy lemon grass taste as well.

The beer is easily drinkable. I drank my bottle fairly fast. I am glad I picked up a bottle and will do so again in the future.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Purchased a bottle at Downtown Wine and Spirits in Somerville

A: Pours with a vigourous white head, which drops to about a half inch. Pale light gold color. Visibly effervescent. Belgian lace.

S: Spicy peppery phenols predominate. Citrusy fruity esters up front as well. Underscored by a hoppy background.

T: Spicy throughout. Orange citrus esters very subdued. Slightly hoppy. Dry finish with a bitter slightly spice aftertaste.

MF: Light body. Very effervescent. Astringent.

D: Nice tart thirst quenching saison. Very drinkable. Let warm for a better taste.

From the bottle into a snifter

A: golden hazy, with a good two to three finger head. Good retention.

S: grassy, earthy and musty. Some mild yeast aroma.

T: tart and citrusy.

M: medium carbonation with good feel. Dry finish.

O: my first true Belgian Saison, I have to say I appreciate this beer quite a bit. I found the taste and mouth feel to be more "natural" than the other saisons I have had. The finish was very nice and all in all this is a very impressive beer.
