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.

2014 bottle.

A: Pours a hazy gold. Enormous and effervescent off-white head. Top notch head retention, huge island of foam and almost continuous walls of lacing. Almost perfect.

S: Nice bright citrus with some pears and apples. White pepper and some bready malt. A little floral aspect to it too.

T: Oh yeah, definitely floral up front, you can really get that challenger hop aspect here. Floral with white pepper and light citrus. Very light pears too. Lots more flowers in the middle, leading into a really grainy sort of finish. Light bitterness with drying white pepper, flowers and a hint of citrus in the aftertaste. You get quick little bursts of sweet orange here and there too. Quite nice.

M: Medium bodied, dry and lightly bitter. Aftertaste almost a touch chalky.

O: I wasn't a huge fan of the regular saison dupont but this was quite nice. Lightly bitter, lightly dry and lots of flowers and citrus. Makes for a nice crisp and easy drinking saison with some surprisingly bold flavors at the same time.
