look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle.

A: Clear orange body with an inch of dense eggshell head. Great retention, ok lace.

S: Super fresh, aromatic mix of hops and yeast. Grassy, leafy, and lightly fruity hops get top billing, with some spicy phenols and faint breadiness. Amazing.

T: Spicy up front, mainly from the hops, followed by a distinct almond flavor that's fascinating. Herbal, resinous hops on the cleanly bitter finish. Delicious.

M: Super frothy, creamy in the end. Great.

O: I love the original, largely for its hoppy component, so this is even more amazing. Just like Duvel Tripel Hop is a step up from an already wonderful beer, so too Cuvee Dry Hopping provides a major improvement. Get some.

Cheers!

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 2013-vintage 750 mL bottle into a Westbrook pint glass.

A: Light orangish copper, quite haze. Big fluffy white head atop medium levels of visible carbonation.

S: Light malt, yeasty, light apple and citrus fruitiness, and hints of barnyard grasses.

T: Light malt, tangy barnyard, some horse blanket, earthy yeasty fruit esters, with floral hops that remind me of dandelion greens with moderate bitterness. Finishes fairly dry.

M: Light to medium body, good carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: Not bad but honestly nothing exciting. The sweet yeast esters are a challenging counterpoint to the funk and hop bitterness. Glad to have tried it but not something I'd go back for.

Part of a flight at the Brass Tap in Gainesville. Light yellow pour with fluffy white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pears and funky yeast, a good bit of grassiness. Flavor is funk, dust, hops, pears, apples. Easy drinking, somewhat effervescent, and light mouthfeel with a dry finish. A very nice beer.

On tap at Pizza Paradiso in Georgetown. Color is a hazy mid-amber in the nonic. Dry yet fruity. A warm Hefeweizen sweetness sneaks in. The Belgian yeastiness provides a rich chaos of murky, mineral flavors and ends on a dry austere note. Not so much aroma, just hint of yeasty funk.

Comparing this to the regular Saison Dupont, the hops here add just a little bitterness in the aftertaste, but not much more than the regular version. A more subtle and nice use of what are reported to be Triskel hops from the masters.

2013 vintage. Dry-hopped with the Triskel hop.

Beer is cloudy golden with a large snow-white head. Good retention.

Nose contains yeast as the dominant smell, but also lemon, light fruits and floral notes. Spicy and peppery. Very good.

A stronger hop bitterness in comparison to the regular Saison Dupont is immediately apparent. Then are the classic flavours: yeast, pepper, spice, bread and light fruits. Finishes dry. Really good.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. Dry.

Overall, great. The dry-hopping provides a bit more depth and complexity to a classic. Really tasty stuff.
