look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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

2006 Bottling

Dupont's organic saison, Foret poured a glowing hazy golden into my tulip. A big 3 finger dense white head formed on the pour that slowly receded to no less than a half finger cap. As the head receded it left chunky lacing that eventually slid back into the body leaving some patchy spots behind.

As I take my first whiff I get a nose full of tart green apples. There's a candi sugar like sweetness in the aroma but I don't believe any candi sugar was added. Mild barnyard funkiness shows itself toward the backend. Mild grassiness as well. Very nice.

Flavor is like a big slice of tart green apple upfront followed by a quick sweetness reminiscent of bubblegum. The tart apple makes my mouth water uncontrollably. Then the sweetness calms my tastebuds until the barnyard sourness and drying kicks in. Very tasty saison.

Body is a liitle more robust than other saisons. Partially because of the higher alcohol content. It's still on the light side of medium. The generous carbonation tickles the tongue.

I could without a doubt sip the day away with this saison. Very tasty and flavorful.

Another outstanding saison from Dupont. Wasn't sure if I was going to be too crazy about an organically produced saison. After drinking this more than satisfies my thirst for a quality saison.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the tap into a small pint glass

A: Nice dark gold color with lots of carbonation inside. Somewhat hazy. One finger white head.

S: Subtle with some citrus notes and honey standing out. Very light.

T: Fresh and lightly spicey. Light fruits and just a hint of yeast underneath. A refreshing, nice summer beer.

Pleasant enough but very subtle. hoping for more of that fresh saison character. This was just ok.

Serving type: on-tap
