Poured into a tulip glass
Appearance- pours a hazy golden orange color, with a large fluffy white head. Good retention and lace.
Smell- Caramel and honey dominate. Slight citrus and bit earthy, light pepper.
Taste- Doughy bready caramel and honey again, are completely dominating the palate. WTF? This is supposed to be a saison. Very slight citrus, pepper, and a little barnyard I guess. But next to no funk to this.
Mouthfeel- Lighter body, yet a bit sticky. High carbonation.
Overall- Saison Dupont is awesome, and this one was well, not so much. I wouldn't really call this dry, crisp, or refreshing. Saison is my favorite style, this one was not for me, at all.

750ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. From yesterday.
A: Pours a hazy gold color. The head is two fingers high and white in shade. I'm incredibly amazed by how creamy and well retaining its texture is, and also by how much lacing it leaves behind. There are also a noticeable amount of yeast particles near the bottom of the glass.
S: Aye, it's a bit skunky. Thankfully it doesn't obscure the other notes. I'm also getting noble hops, candied sugar, and spice. Shame about the skunk, but it doesn't fully ruin the nose.
T: MUCH better. It starts with a fantastic fruit notes - citrus, pineapple, peach, you name it. Spiciness enters the finish, bringing almost a sesame seed character. I'm also getting herbal and black pepper touches. It's just deep enough, yet still fantastically effortless and unique - and at the end of the day, that's what a saison should be.
M: I like how creamy, soft, and full it is. Yet, it's still bone dry, with medium carbonation. I love how it's both rich feeling AND refreshing all at the same time.
O: Oh yeah, this is the shit. The skunky nose isn't so offputting as to ruin this, and every other aspect is at least excellent. It's so drinkable, yet so rich and so flavorful. I need more of this in my life.
