awesome stuff, an organic version of the famous dupont saison. hazy goldenrod colored beer with a brassy glimmer and an inch and a half of frothing white head. i smell the sugar in this immediately, candy sugar in its rawest form, not all the way fermented out, but not too sweet either, a lot like a tripel on the nose, but the yeast is far more interesting. classic belgian saison strain gives the farmhouse profile without ever getting into the funky or weird zone. i highly appreciate the malt depth on this, its sturdy wheat, with some body, and again with a touch of residual sugar. a well refined yet very rustic ale, id love to culture some of this yeast for a brew of my own. great effervescence in the feel even though though the body is heavier than a lot of american examples of the style. yeast and sugar dual in the finish, this may change over time as we know these two ingredients are not stable together. great beer, especially for the price, props for being organic. even though its supposed to be the same, this is appreciably different (and superior) from the regular saison dupont.

General: I got this bottle from a friend who is also into craft beer. This was allowed to breath and warm up for a couple of minutes before pouring into my Ballast Point tulip glass.

Appearance: very light color IMHO for a saison, it's a very light gold color, almost a yellow. the head is white and light and frothy. Lots of little tiny bubbles that seem to last for a good few minutes. Really good lacing as this one is enjoyed too. The color just seems too light to me, give me a little more color with a saison!

Aroma: The aroma is crazy on this, when I was pouring I could smell this beer without even leaning in towards it. Lots of nice little spices with this beer. I get a lot of the typical belgian yeast phenols including light clove, a touch of banana and what I think is coriander. There is a slight bubblegum aroma to this also. This is a really enjoyable aroma, no peppery spice like some saisons, I'm a fan.

Mouthfeel: This has a nice mouthfeel, it's moderate, right about in the middle of the range in general. The carbonation is high on this, each sip seems to erupt with the tiny bubbles. This is lovely.

Taste: There are a lot of very mild flavors going on with this. There is a nice balance to this beer between the bitterness and the sweetness. Typical belgian flavors going on with this just like the aroma but it actually is very delicate. I really like this one! Great flavors with this!

Overall: This is a good saison. I am a huge saison fan and this one is very well balanced and has nice aroma and flavors. The one thing that I do have to take down points for is that this is WAY to carbonated for my taste. I like to be able to move the beer around in my mouth so that I can taste it everywhere, can't do it with this beer. The carbonation is too high. It's to style still so I'm not knocking it down that much, but that's the only real flaw that I see.

Dated 2013 poured Into a tulip

Nice white lacing with big rocky head

Lemon zest, hay/grass funk, sweet pilsner malts

Similar to smell, nice fresh lemon/ lime? Barnyard.

Prickly, refreshing. Great carb

Overall, a great organic offering that represents the best of the style

A great beer from one of the world's best breweries. Nice Appearance. Perfect amount of carbonation and lacing. Lots of funk in the nose. True to the style from beginning to end. I can't think of a better organic beer. I will be revisiting this one real soon! (So many beers, so little time!)
