look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

P: A shiny copper orange with a vivacious tornado spinning in the middle of the glass. Topped with a creamy layer of French vanilla colored head that hangs out for a while. Delicate clingy lacing cascaded along the edges.

S: Green tea tannins, lemongrass, slight skunk aroma, peppery spice, Belgian yeast and burnt sugar. Phenolic presence with subtle bubble gum, cherry syrup and fruit rollups.

T/M: Herbal infused light fruit cup syrup. Spiced rum soaked apples, flower petals, fresh grass, lime, yellow pear and hard cherry candy. A sugar dosed saison similarity. Moderate body that finishes dry and somewhat chalky. Lingering spiced alcohol.

O: An interesting brew for sure. Complex and well blended. I have to say the tornado effect was the coolest thing I have ever since pouring a beer. I love the chance to try ancient interpretations of past beers. This was a real treat. Proost!!

If I recall what I was told, this is one of those: "Oh we found a recipe at an archaelogical site somewhere."

Pours a clouded orange gold. Nice off white head. Citrus nose. Flavor is smooth and citrusy. Did I say smooth? Hopefully I did. Lasting flavor. Yet again, you see the skill of Dupont through this beer. Nicely done.

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

Pours with a light and fluffy white head that is about 2 fingers high in a tulip shaped glass. The head lasts for about 2 minutes then fades to a lace topping the ale with coarser lacing around the edge.  The color is a hazy straw and carbonation effervescence is visble. 

The smell is strongly funked with fruit notes of lemon and cantaloupe. The funk is like a damp barn and there is a bit of skunky edge, but a bit more herbal and earthy. 

The taste is masked by some really explosive effervescence.  It starts with some pale sweet grains and fruity esters.   There elements of herbs, coriander, and Belgian yeasts.  It ends bready and dry. 

The mouthfeel is intense like a champagne. A little thin, alcohol barely noticeable, and nice pleasant aftertaste.

750ml bottle received via Growling at the Moon from jmarsh123. Corked and caged. Thanks Jeremy!

Beer tried to follow the cork out, but I was too quick for it, haha! Poured into a DFH snifter with a 2" eggshell head, over the completely cloudy golden amber brew. Frothy head lasts forever, with plentiful chunky lace. Aroma is tart and yeasty.

Taste begins lightly sweet, with spices and tart interplay in the center, and a lightly earthy but crisp and clean close. A bit of honey sweetness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is soft but lightly prickly over the tongue, and drinkability is good. Easily the best gruit I've had.

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

Beer is golden and slightly cloudy. Moderately-sized white head.

Green grape and other light fruit in the nose. Lemon. Belgian yeast. Slightly herbal. Some spices. Quite a bright scent. Nice.

Yeast, light fruit and spices are all readily present on drinking the beer. Green grape. banana, lemon, white pepper and coriander. On the sweet side, with the sweetness particularly notable in the finish. Grassy and bready.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Sweetness dries the mouth a bit, Smooth.

Overall, good. I don't have much experience with gruit, but this doesn't strike me as wildly different from the saisons Dupont makes.

On tap at Bier:Thirty in Boise.

A- Golden straw color, little head with no lacing.

S- all Belgian esters and floral nose smells good, not very strong odor.

T- similar to the nose. Belgian yeast, cloves, banana, slight peppery flavor. Malt is fairly heavily represented, as expected with the lack of hops from the style.

M- syrupy, somewhat heavy bodied given the appearance. Carbonation is pretty strong as well.

O- good, unusual in a good way. I haven't had many Gruits, I'd try again, though not super often.

Coming in a 750ml green champagne bottle, corked and caged. BB 07/2006 and the cork marks "2.004", supposedly the bottling year? Served lightly chilled in a broad-rimmed goblet.

A: slightly hazy, dark orangey golden or honeyish hue; the white beer head forms slowly, but retains its tight, cottony-foamy texture brilliantly; carbonation is quite lively, full of tiny bubbles~~
S: interesting combo. of sweet pilsner+caramel malts and tart fruity edges of apricot+lemon+green apple; the funky farmhouse yeastiness typical of Saison is quite understated here, but still makes a healthy contribution to the overall balance; a lovely flow of spices (white pepper etc.) as in lots of Belgian pale ales sustains with dried-grassy hops at the back (a bit like Saaz). Pleasant, but not terribly complex.
T: creamy-textured, semi-sour sweet and caramely maltiness, lemony+apple-ish fruitiness, and compelling dryish/woody, coriander-spicy, and slightly damp yeastiness all intertwine beautifully... the palate becomes drier at the back, where a residual taste of hops, a mild wheatish sweet aftertaste, and a little lemon-grass aroma sustains, before the quiet undercurrent of warming alc. creeps down the throat and rounds off the palate with a satisfying, rounded finishing feel.
M&D: creamy-soft on the mouthfeel, it seems the carbonation in the bottle-conditioning process really has transformed to be really subtle and soft, and makes this beer smoother than it would've been. The overall balance manifests itself in the ratio b/w hops, spices, and malts on the palate, but the down-side of this is lacking more complexity or an exciting theme for it to stand out. That said, I like this balanced beer, be it a Saison, Belgian Pale Ale, or something of a cross in between... a session one for me.

750ml served in a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange with 3 fingers of white head that has excellent retention. The head forms a nice cap and collar and never dissolves.

S - Ground dried grain, very earthy grassiness, black and green pepper corns, cloves, apples, peaches, apricots, and banana esters. Soured cantaloupe really comes out on the second pour.

T - More herbal than the nose, very spicy, concentrated floral flavors, it's hard to pick out what spices you're tasting. Good dose of melon and stone fruit, especially apricots mesh with a heavy malty base while herbal bitterness balances out and keeps things semi dry.

M - Aggressive stingy carbonation at first but mellows out and turns creamy. Heavier body but the carbonation helps lighten it up.

Not a common style of beer but this is one of the best I've had. Awesome yeast and a hefty malt base. The herbs and spices work very well and aren't overdone. It's a challenge to pick out what you're tasting. This would go great with smoked meats.
A well crafted beer. Worth seeking out if you're into interested in the style.

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

Pours out a really clear yellow with lots and lots of bubbles that continue eminating from the bottom of the glass. Nice lacing here also.
Elmers glue at first then as it warms the belgian spices come through. Very peppery and sharp to the nose. That belgian yeast is really strong here. Not a lot of fruit smells though.
Taste is sweet and fruity like pears or dates. Then the belgian yeast shines through and the lemon pledge follows right behind.
Mouthfeel is nothing but CLEAN. Wonderfull effervescence and non-stickyness in a thirst quenching light belgian concoction.
Overall this is a really clean and refreshing drink. At 12.95 a bottle I will be getting this again.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

This may be the first label I've ever seen with not only an historical anecdote, but a footnoted one! Nice... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy straw topped by over a finger off slightly dirty white foam. The nose comprises flowers, honey, cream cheese, ginger, light clove, nutmeg, peach, wheat, light cardamom, light lemon zest, and the slightest kiss of mild Belgian funk. The taste hols notes of honey, ginger, cardamom, light orange zest, flowers, clove, white grapes, banana, light watermelon, nutmeg, light maple syrup, and cracked wheat. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a grainy feel. Overall, this thing seems all over the place, but somehow comes back to one central pivot-point: a sort of saison-gruit, combining the best characteristics of both styles. A very pleasant experience, indeed.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage on the cork. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, coriander, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, wheat, bread, grass, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast esters with herbs and a fair amount of malt balance; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, coriander, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, wheat, bread, grass, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, coriander, pepper, herbal, floral, wheat, bread, grass, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with herbal flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent herb/spiced saison. All around great balance and complexity of yeast esters and herbs/spices with a moderate malt balance; and very smooth to sip on for 8%. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet tulip. Corked marked 2.011

A: Translucent dark straw color with a large beige head. Carbonation is prevalent streaming up the sides of the glass.

S: Light skunkyness combined with fruity Belgian yeast characteristics.

T: Tastes mostly light a light belgian ale. Nothing wrong with that, but I am having a hard time detecting the additional spices. A slight bit of acidity in the finish.

M: Highly carbonated, seems to go well with the style.

O: A highly drinkable Belgian golden style ale

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750mL caged-and-corked bottle into my Drie De Fonteinen tumbler.

Clear aureolin liquid with a fist of off-white soft peaks climbing the glass. Thick, clingy, soapy lacing. Superior retention.

Soft estery/yeasty aromatics with baked banana, vanilla, and a low but lasting floral element.

Sweet palate entry with a pleasing pure malt flavor. Very light bitter-tartness offsets the sugars, while that floral note returns in the finish. Barely discernible herbal notes, hard to believe there are a dozen unusual ingredients spicing things up as their contribution is so subtle.

Medium-bodied, zesty yet creamy, and strangely refreshing. Alcohol is well hidden.

Having not had many (any?) gruits until now, this is difficult for me to rate to style, but it is a well crafted ale, and strikes one as experimental yet conservative all at once. A good beer in the lead-up to Valentine's Day.

A: A cloudy golden pour with a nice bubbly white head. Lacing is good and so is the retention.

S: Pepper, herbs and orange. Honey. A little grass. Sometimes get an odd little whiff of something funky.

T: Very interesting. Honey and oranges for sure. Lots of peppery spices that I can't quite identify accurately. Some herbal notes (including grass) but doesn't seem to be from herbal hops. Very interesting, wish I knew what was in this so I could identify the tastes better.

M: Surprisingly light despite the ABV, otherwise quite smooth with just a tingle from the spices. Almost no bitterness at all.

O: Very unusual beer, I'm honestly still not sure what to think. It tastes kinda like a saison with an overload of herbs and spices but minimal hops. It's quite delicious though, that's all I know!

750ml corked and caged bottle served at 48 degrees in my ST tulip. Pours a translucent orange-gold with a rocky, three inch bright white head. Head gradually recedes into a solid quarter inch cap leaving textured clumps of lacing in its wake. Copious tiny bubbles are present effervescing in solution. Nose is earthy/herbal with a trace of skunk, followed by a light floral character and a suggestion of spice towards the finish. Taste is bright and citrusy at the start. The middle expresses a pleasant, light, toasted malt character that quick yields to a light, spicy character that ties the flavor profile together - coriander, citrus rind and perhaps a trace of candi sugar. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a carbonation that is quite prickly without being overly gassy. There's a residual tingle and a slight astringency that lingers across the palette between quaffs. Another exceptional beer from Brasserie Dupont. Definitely a bit cleaner than a traditional farmhouse; however, not at all what I tend to expect from an Herbed/Spiced beer. A bright and complex beer that is pleasantly quaffable with a well-hidden abv. Well worth your time if the opportunity presents.

Hazy blonde-orange colour, 1.5 fingers of white head with som elace as well. Smell is yeasty with a lot of spices in there as well, fruity with lots of banana and apple, light alcohol present, mild funk with lemon and citrus notes also. Taste is yeasty up front with a bit of a tangy funk to it as well, fruity citrus, lemon, green apple, spicy and dry at first before a moderately sweet finish, floral and earthy mid palate to finish. Medium high carbonation, medium creamy body. I really enjoyed this, just a pleasure to drink and nicely aromatic as well as flavourful, prefered this to the saison.

Bottle picked up at Whole Foods P Street in DC a few months back. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a semi-hazed very light golden color with a nice white head that fades somewhat quickly into a thin cap throughout. The nose brings forward some wheat and a bit of light spice. Slight clove character. Flavor has a good dosing of wheat and grain plus moderate spice. Smooth and slightly chewy with moderate carbonation. Dry, fairly-bitter finish. Quite nice.

A: cloudy, off-white/amber color, dense creamy head
S: full nose, earthy, spicy, yeasty, traditional saison
T; saison style with strong malt backbone and noticeable EtOH, heavier, richer saison with touch of cloyingness in finish
M: good and highly drinkable, but not as balanced and thirst quenching as other Dupont Saisons

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a hazy goldenrod with a full soft white head. Good retention and lace.

S: Yeasty with a lot of herbs which are hard to place. Perfumy and intoxicating.

T: Estery for sure, lots of orange and lemon. Light sage like notes. Flowery, honeysuckle, but as with the nose a hard beer to describe in words, but it clearly tastes good.

M: Medium-bodied, soft carbonation, very smooth, no hint of the 8%.

O: A fun beer to delve into. This is what I expect from Dupont, exciting and thought provoking saison based beers.

A - Poured from the 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass a hazy orange colour with a few centimetres of head that hangs around for a while falling away slowly leaving thick lacing.
S - Spicy yeast phenols with a fair amount of light fruity notes such as pear, melon and sweet grapes. A hint of pale malt.
T - Powdery belgain yeast comes through but is balanced nicely by a slightly sweet pale malt quality along with the fruitiness.
M - Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.
D - The 8%ABV is deceptive. Full of flavour with nothing being over the top or out of proportion.
Something I'll be buying more of indeed.

OK. I'll admit it. I bought this beer based on the label alone. What can I say, I'm a sucker for good graphic design. "Belgian Ale Brewed with Herbs and Spices" on the label.

Poured into my Allagash footed cervois glass. Pours a clear, bright, tangerine with a huge, rocky white head that sticks around for the whole ride. Active carbonation observed.

Um, honestly the first thing I get off the nose is marijuana. There's a wine like character to the nose as well, almost like a pinot grigio.

The taste has a lot of spiciness, Belgian yeast, preserved hops? Really nice flavor and pretty unique taste. The spice dominates but not in a bad way. Really, really enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is very active and just pulls the spices off the tongue and sends it through your nose. Really, really cool.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber. Thin white head dissipated to a ring around the glass. Aroma is light fruit, melon, spices reminiscent of Belgian spicing, sweet malt. Flavor starts like a dry saison, fruit elements develop quickly, peach, apple, orange as well as honey. Light Belgian ale elements like cloves and banana also present. Finishes with a dry and aromatic herbal flavors, sage and grass. Flavor somewhat subdued in the finish, but a long lingering fruit and herbal aftertaste. Most closely resembles a fruit forward saison, but with no funky elements. Light but complex and a pleasure to drink. Light to medium bodied; this growler fill was somewhat low on carbonation.

Bottle from Chevy Chase, $11.99. I was initially going to pass on this after I'd heard mixed things about it, but after trying a sample the rep poured me yesterday, I knew I had to do this justice. By far the best gruit I've had, and I hope my review convinces you of that

A moderately hazy light orange with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great. The nose is rather marvelous. This might be classified a gruit for rather pedantic reasons, but IMO, this is in the vein of a saison. Big, spicy and herbaceous nose with a blend of white pepper, bitter, bolted basil, heather and more generally, like a meadow in springtime. For a beer that is unhopped, this does have a surprising skunky character, faint but noticeable. Honey is noticeable as well, as is a lot of straw and dough-like malt character. The alcohol is pretty well hidden IMO.

The palate is a rather beautiful blend of a yeasty phenols, yeasty spices and bouquet garni. The mid-palate brings out all the fruitiness, with a blend of ripe peaches, mango and papaya with a little bit of melon too. The spice and herb character is rather excellent. Beautifully balanced white pepper, dried flowers, flavors of bay leaf and some herbaceous bitterness. The blend of herbs coupled with the yeast does simulate a mild to medium hop character, but the single biggest aspect that gives away the fact that no hops were used is the absolute absence of hop oils and resins on the finish. Yes, there's a little bitterness to go with the yeast and the honey drizzled fruit, but the lack of the definition that hops add to the finish does slightly detract from the enjoyment. That said, when evaluated for the style, this is simply nonpareil. Medium-light in body with a rather high level of carbonation, this beer is rather excellent. Highly recommended. Not quite as good as Saison Dupont, but definitely better than Avec Les Bons Voeux IMO.
