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.

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.
