Poured into a Perfect Pint glass. Thanks for sharing, Alan.

A: Golden, opaque with a white one finger head that dissipates down to foam. Thick lacing.

S: Citrus (oranges and lemons), pine hops.

T: Smooth, semi-sweet. Summery. Oranges lead the citrus attack with light pepper in the background. A low bitter finish.

M: Light to medium with low carbonation.

O: A tamed-down version of the regular Saison Dupont. For the price ($31 for the growler), it wasn't just spectacular like I was expecting. Just OK.

750 ml bottle, 2014, poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden color with a four finger white head.

S- Floral hops, some citrus, lemon, light fruits, slightly funky yeast, some bready malts, touch of peppercorns.

T- Citrus and floral hops combined with hints of lemons and a nice sweet bready malt backbone, finish is better, earthy, hints of pepper, slightly funky. Very nice balance between the Saison flavors and the hops.

S- Smooth crisp, dry medium body.

O- A great beer, very happy I was able to find this. As a fan of both Saisons and hoppy beers, I love what it is going on with this beer. This is a most try for anyone likes Saisons and IPAs.

Appearance: The beer features a slightly cloudy, pale gold body topped with a fluffy white head. The head sticks around for a respectable amount of time, and as it drops it leaves sheets of uniform white lacing.

Smell: A hefty dose of lemony citrus gives me a bit of a surprise, but I realized that I wasn’t paying attention to the label and the fact that this year’s dry hopping addition is challenger hops. The nose is filled out with white pepper and what I would call a traditional saison yeast scent.

Taste: It is certainly more hop forward than the traditional Saison Dupont, and I am now regretting not having purchased one of those so I could engage in a head-to-head comparison. The citrus continues to make things interesting, the white pepper sticks around and is joined by coriander, and a slight funk shows up. It’s not full-on funk, more like a hint of grass and earth. It finishes fairly bitter but clean.

Mouthfeel: This one is relatively highly carbonated and, despite the big hop profile, feels quite light in the mouth.

Drinkability: Quite high, and perfect for a summer day.
