Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. 2014 edition with the Challenger hop.

Appearance: Pours a hazy straw golden orange with a lot of bubbles. Huge white head that takes up most of the glass and slowly recedes. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty, spicy, and fruity Belgian aroma with good hints of barnyard funk and fruit. Belgian yeast with hints of farmhouse funk, peppers, and clove. Bready malt hints of wheat, straw, hay, grains, biscuit, and cracker. Good hints of citrus with some lemon zest, mango, and orange along with other dried fruit hints of pear, banana, and green apple. Sweet hints of Belgian candied sugar. Earthy and floral hop presence with good hints of grass. A very good Saison aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma previews, a nicely fruity, yeasty, and spicy Belgian taste with big notes of funk and fruit esters. Upfront Belgian yeast with notes of farmhouse funk, clove, and white and black peppers. Bready malt with good notes of wheat, grains, straw, hay, biscuit, and crackers. Good taste of citrus fruit with notes of lemon, orange, mango, and grapefruit. Classic Belgian fruit notes of banana, pear, and green apple. Sweet notes of candied sugar. Backing presence of floral and earthy hops with grassy hop notes. A really good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Nicely juicy, spicy, and drying on the finish.

Overall: A very good twist on a great Belgian Saison. The extra dry hopping adds some nice citrus fruit and floral notes.

A: In a 12-oz goblet, this was a straw-colored beer, quite cloudy, with a substantial head for the glass size.
S: Very nice aroma, with a lot of floral hop notes, and a yeasty spiciness.
T: Pure Dupont, the brewery that introduced me to saisons: bitterness up front is moderately high, with loads of floral, earthy hop flavor. Lots of clovey yeast notes, and a well-rounded light fruitiness. Finish is dry with lingering spiciness.
M: Lots of carbonation, very spritzy mouthfeel.

Very top notch beer!

Poured into a Perfect Pint glass. Thanks for sharing, Alan.

A: Golden, opaque with a white one finger head that dissipates down to foam. Thick lacing.

S: Citrus (oranges and lemons), pine hops.

T: Smooth, semi-sweet. Summery. Oranges lead the citrus attack with light pepper in the background. A low bitter finish.

M: Light to medium with low carbonation.

O: A tamed-down version of the regular Saison Dupont. For the price ($31 for the growler), it wasn't just spectacular like I was expecting. Just OK.
