Saison Dupont Belgian Farmhouse Ale - dry hopping
2014 edition- English Challenger Hops
Given as a present a few months ago. From fridge to chalice glass...after carefully and slowly opening the cage and cork. - It's all part of the drama.
Update note: It looks like there are other posts for this brew but from other years. There is subtle variety in the hops used each release and may make the comparisons a bit off.

A - Golden Honey tone with a two-finger thick frosty head - beautiful lacing.
Lots of seemingly endless carbonation. Some thickness. Looks nice when light shines into it.

S - Sweet aroma like being in a garden in late spring. Citrus, honey, slight butterscotch, and I'm not sure what else - quite complex, but very earthy... some yeasty scent as well.

T - After a few minutes the head retention minimized to a 1/4 inch frost with one large chuck bit of foam - like a iceberg sitting in the middle. Citrus notes - orange, grapefruit and other un-named flavors, though a bit less than the nose anticipates.

M - The first few tastes there was a nice fullness (due mainly to the head) that dissipated with a bit of zesty carbonation. Very mild tartness and surprisingly dry finish.
Quite thin were the tastes towards the middle of the glass, but fullness returned at the last few quafs mainly due to the remaining head. Carbonation is quite persistent. Leave on tongue and feel the fizzle.

O- 2014 was a good year for this Saison. I'll need to try their regular offering sometime soon. The apperance in the chalice was classic. The floral and citrus nose was enticing. Very light. Very drinkable. And at 6.5 ABV very sociable. High marks. Definite buy.

It pours a hazy yellow, slightly orange colour with a white dense head. A combination of grass, hay, barnyard and herbal accents compose the taste. These reappear in the taste, but with a sharp bitterness. Unfortunately, the taste vaishes rapidly, but there is a light taste of apple that lingers around. Very good beer, but would have loved it if the taste didn't diasappear so quickly.

I removed the cork very carefully from a 48 deg bottle that had been sitting calm for 3 weeks. It volcanoed out after about 5 seconds and sat in my sink continuing to foam up and out of the bottle for 30 minutes. I hope yours goes better.

On tap at the Bier Stein the other day. The beer menu that this relies on challenger hops.


The beer pour a solid gold color with very good head retention and lacing. On the nose, you get some noticeable honey, light clove and dry citrus. The flavor profile is more of the same, but it's incredible how much flavor this beer delivers on a light, dry, lightly bitter frame. Drinkability is exceptional... but for the hefty price tag, I could happily drink this all night long.

The words DuPont an saison are pretty much synonymous. When I think saison, I think Dupont This is another example why. Great stuff.
