Picked this up in Idaho to try another Saison style, as I love Hennepin by Ommegang.
Pour is a golden color and a decent white head.
Smell is slight citrus with almost no hint of any alcohol.
Noticable carbonation. Crisp, mild and goes down easy with no aftertaste.l
Great drinkability, would be great in the summertime!
Recommended.

A- Had a peachy - amber opaque color to it. Was very fizzy when poured and developed a thick white head.

S- A little difficult to find the words for the aromas here. Definitely something that reminds me or green apples and maybe a little grapefruitiness. There is also a slight malt smell with some spices in the background.

T- Starts off a bit biscuity and sour. Some citrus flavors and yeast funkiness kick in mid way through.

M- Medium bodied and thick, almost chewy feeling. Medium to low carbonation.

D- Refreshing, yet I can only drink one 750ml at a time because it is a bit heavy feeling.

A failry clean, smell of skunk hints before i finished the pour. Very yellow, almost neon red bull. Very white head, nice lace that lingers on the suface after it receeds

S wow. green bottle did its thing. nice spice/floral aromas with hoppiness

T bitter hop up front, very pleasant. skunk at the end, but adds not distracts to the beer. lots of freshness, long finish

M coating, hits the sides of the tounge for flavor

D stylistically very nice. a cleaner saison with skunky flare, but very very enjoyable and continued to grow on me

Appearance: clear golden body with a solid white head.

Smell: initially you get that funky barnyard smell wich turns into a nice sweet apple with a little banana

Taste: so if you're new to saisons I would try this out. It sets the bar on what a standard saison tastes like IMO. Very classic for it's style. Nothing crazy but it's done just right. Apple sourness with that typical banana clove combination.

Mouthfeel: extremely dry and carbonated. Very refreshing in The summer

Overall a must try for anybody especially those new to the style. Solid beer all around but again not spectacular out of this world level.

(Amateur Reviewer)
I find this beer to be nearly perfect, as saison is my favorite style right now. The only detractor to me, is how impossible it is to pour off the bottle without 40% to 70% head. This beer is so obviously made using champagne yeast, I believe Nitro-glycerin might be less reactive. Other than that, everything about this beer is dead on.

A - Dark gold, orange, cloudy, beautiful whipped cream head that's easy to recreate with a swirl of the glass. Makes you want a "got milk" mustache as soon as it's poured.

S - Yeast, alcohol, biscuits, grass.

T - Vanilla, apricot, hint of nutmeg, sweet cream, pineapple. Really nice, mellow blend of flavors. Good balance of spiciness and sweetness.

M - Light, but creamy feel on the middle and sides of tongue. Perfect light carbonation. Slides down like ice cream.

D - I could definitley have a couple of these, though maybe a bit too filling for more than that. I will probably finish this 750ml bottle!

I'm a new and eager student of Belgian beers and I am loving using this as my study. I don't see how this beer could dissapoint anyone!

Poured from a .375 ml champagne split bottle, cloudy, hazy yellow color in my glass with a thick foamy head, smells of citrus, slight astringance, a sour odor,mmm i cant wait to taste. Wow, this is some good stuff, a lightly sweet and wonderfully sour flavor, this beer is not afraid to be what it is. I love the farmhouse ale style and Saison Dupont is at the top of my list. A wonderfully refreshing beer, the .375 ml is not quite enough of this stuff for me, but i wouldnt drink it all night. A crusty baguette, and some ripe cheeses, sitting under an awning at a nice cafe sipping on some Saison Dupont, now thats a heavanly scenario!!
