2013. The beer appears cloudy and pale yellow-orange in color. The head is white and rocky. It puffs up aggressively when the beer is poured but settles to small clumps of bubbles on the surface in a short period of time. Little to no lacing. The aroma is similar to the normal version but adds in a floral, mildly grassy hop aroma. It's not a big change, but the additional layer of flavor is welcome and adds to the overall profile of the beer. The beer is earthy with some bubblegum, sweet malt, peppery spice and a light medicinal ester touch. The hops show up with a noble-ish blend of floral, grassy, mildly citric and herbal flavors. The taste starts out with sweet, fresh grain, before a blend of grassy bitterness and earthy dryness change the direction. Lots of peppercorn spiciness, particularly in the finish. There's also a healthy dose of hop bitterness in the finish, a blend of bitter grass and citrus rind notes. Mouthfeel is prickly and light. There's some body to the beer, but it's still an easy-drinking saison, refreshing and crisp. It's fun to find a dry hopped version of a classic beer, and I appreciate that they didn't go over the top with the extra hoppiness. On the other hand, I would love to see what they could do with other hop varieties. Definitely worth trying if you like Saison Dupont or saisons, generally.

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.
