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!)

A: nice rocky white head beautiful lacing as expected from any saison from DuPont.

S: peppery light fruit

T: spicy, pepper, pear, fruity esters

M: light bodied and crackling dry - masterful

O: DuPont masters the saison and this further proves it. That dry spicy peppery flavor that defines a saison is all here. Their original is better but this is a nice change up.

4.04/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy goldenstraw capped by a three-fingered head that leaves several strands of lace

Smell: It took a while for the skunkiness to fade away but once it does, the aromatics blend bready and spicy tones with a stone fruit character

Taste: Bready flavors, up front, with honey and fruity tones (apple and pear) developing along with a range of spices (coriander and, to a lesser extent, cumin) and a hint of yeasty funk; in the finish, the honey offsets the dryness, creating a nice blend, along with the spices and yeasty funk

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: If only this beer wasn't packaged in a green bottle, it would be so much better; still a very good beer but it really is hindered by the skunk
