Pours a beautiful cloudy straw color into my tulip Tons of puffy white head forms with an easy pour and shows no sign of going anywhere.
Smells of citrus, mostly lemon. The classic saison yeast smell is there too with a bit of a funky edge to it. Very pleasant smelling beer. Taste follows the nose. Plenty of citrus and even more yeast flavor. A nice hop bitterness as it goes down.
A saison should finish dry, and this one does. Flavor coats the palate for quite a while despite the dry finish. Despite the lighter flavor of this style the 7.5 abv is very well hidden. Very drinkable, highly flavorful saison from Dupont.

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.
