Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping 2013. Got this bottle a little over a week ago. I feel I should have drank it sooner but oh well.

a - hazy golden with lots of head that eventually calms down nicely.

s - earthy, a little citrusy, floral. very nice fragrance.

t - i havent had regular Saison Dupont in some time, so it's hard for me to compare this against the original. but my cloudy memories indicate that i may like this more. tastes of straw, pepper, grass, yeast. there's a citrusy bitterness that i assume comes from the dry hopping. however, i felt there would have been a more pronounced hop flavor. perhaps this is because the hop flavors have already started to fade? very earthy finish.

m - lots of carbonation and bitterness that coats the mouth. feels very refreshing on this hot day.

o - as a huge fan of the style, i feel that Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping is better than the original, and one of the top saisons i've ever had. i was expecting more of the hop taste, but i can't very accurately remember the original. damn, looks like i'll have to go buy a bottle now! either way, top tier saison and worth a taste, especially if you have a regular dupont handy.

2014 Cuvee. 750ml bottle purchased at Shadyside Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh, PA on 7/7/14. Poured into tulip.

A - Hazy golden hue with wonderful rocky head on pour. Head dissipates slowly, lacing is superb.

S - Very mild yeast characteristics of banana and cream balanced with a light citrus/lemon note.

T - Light but full malts and a nice balance of saison funkiness complimented by vegetal hops and finishes very dry from both the high attenuation and challenger hops. The hops become more evident as the glass warms, interesting twist on a great saison.

M - Zippy carbonation lightening a full body, refreshing and satisfying as a saison should be.

O - Nice variant of a good beer. I may borrow this idea for my own house saison next year.

2014 bottle

Beautiful deep golden color; opaque. Huge amount of light to medium carbonation; lots of bubbles. Large off-white head with good retention; when it dies down a thick layer of foam remains on the surface of the beer along with some lacing on the sides of the glass.

Aroma has a citrus quality combined with a light hoppy smell. Very appealing and invites you to have a drink.

Taste starts off somewhat acidic with a citrus flavor, (think grapefruit), then the taste progresses to a smooth light hoppy flavor with a dry finish. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

Medium body, smooth carbonation that provides a very mild fizziness with a dry finish. Very nice.

Overall a very nice beer to drink slowly and savor. While this style of beer tends to not favorite of mine, I found that I really enjoyed this beer.
