4.48/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: (5.0)
- Wonderful cloudy yellow brew with a hint of zesty orange. Big fluffy fingers of white head which slowly settled to a light thin layer over the brew with a thick half-inch ring of lace which is hanging on to the glass.

Smell: (4.5)
- Oh damn this smells good. Herbal grassy floral and zesty hops.. lovely herbal quality, a light skunky hop which is a good skunky, lemon zest, light citrus fruits, sugars, bready grain, biscuit. Right when I cracked the bottle I was in bliss.

Taste: (4.5)
- Bready sweet malt backing, light brown sugars, Belgian candy sugars melded with a great zingy citrus flare while noticeably playing well with great herbs, grassy and zesty peppery hops... light clove and banana from the yeast, and just an overall zesty fruity touch. Solid and fantastic.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- Little syrupy, drying, and cloying... also chewy to a point. This is a well carbonated if not over-carbonated brew which is medium bodied. Overall a nice zingy tingle which makes the mouth water.

Overall: (4.5)
- This is one hell of a solid beer. Fantastic really. Everything seems to be balanced so well, and the 8% ABV is dangerously well hidden. One could crack this on a summer day and want it as a session brew, one with full flavor. One of my new found favorites from this brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I figured this was a saison since Dupont made it, but Ancient Herbed Ale sounds nice too. Poured into a tulip.

4.0 A: Deeply hazed brown-tinted orange color. Three fingers of foamy white head. Retention is very good and a good sized ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Herbalness abounds in the earthiest of ways. Hay and something like honey. The herbal assault is lead by jasmine and lemongrass, which may or may not even be in here. Wild apple and rotting wood funkiness. Some peppery spiciness from the yeast and maybe a touch of banana fruitiness.

4.0 T: Banana comes to the forefront in the taste. Herbal and funky. Apple orchard, light woodiness, wet hay and grass, lemongrass, jasmine, sage. Moderate bitterness that has to come partially from the herbs. Peppery yeastiness. Bits of honey, some breadiness, lightly phenolic.

3.5 M: Light to ligher medium body. Carbonation is moderately spritzy to the point of almost being biting. Moderately creamy for the body.

4.0 D: Overall, quite enjoyable. I haven't had a lot of this style, so it's tough to judge how it compares to competitors, but I'll have no problem finishing off this 750.

On-tap at Hopleaf. Served in a tulip glass.

A - A finger-plus of white foam settles to a wispy partial cap and thick collar, leaving some mild lacing. Transparent golden blonde body.

S - Massive banana aroma! Some phenolic Belgian yeast, cloves, mild toasted grains, and surprisingly sweet for a Dupont offering. The gruit herbs and spices are fairly well-integrated, although there's a slight vomit aroma that's a bit distracting.

T - I like the taste better, as it has less of the strange herb character and phenolic yeast, and more peppery, estery flavors mixed with banana, and sugar sweetness. Alcohol is quite well-hidden.

M - Medium body, smooth texture, moderate-to-low carbonation, and a lightly sticky finish. No alcohol warmth, even at 8%.

D - Interesting beer, and not entirely what I was expecting from a Belgian gruit. The banana/clove como had me thinking weizenbock more than anything. Other than the mild puke note in the aroma this was pretty enjoyable stuff. Certainly in the upper echelon of the style for me.

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.

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: On the orange side of yellow. Reminds me of a dark pilsner. Slightly hazy. Tons of little bubbles streaming to the top, creating a one-finger coarse head that lingers.
S: Wheat, honey, spice, a hint of light hops.
T: Heavily spiced, especially cardamom. A bit of grain and honey. Then it turns bitter, but not in a good hops way, more of a I just ate pure cocoa powder way.
M: Medium-bodied and smooth.
O: I tried to be objective & I'm sure there are many who would like this, but it was not for me & I could only finish half a glass.

Labeled 'Cervesia'

A - A slightly cloudy straw coloured brew, effervescent with a thick creamy pure white head that calms to a film that remains to the finish. Sticky drools of lacing smatter the glass.

S - Very belgian aroma of wild yeast, bread, spices and grains.

T - Follows the nose entirely. Delicious and the 8% abv is hidden excellently.

M - Creamy full body yet with a medium level of carbonation and zing.

O - Really nice beer this. Interesting and sessionable, a rare double.

Every year we get a list of "Holiday Beer Offerings" and I peruse through them like a kid picking out his Christmas list. One that really caught my eye this year was the Posca Rustica, brewed at Brasserie Dupont. The Saison Dupont has been one of my favorite brews for a couple years now, and I'm very curious about this brew I've never heard of.

Described as a Herbed/Spiced Beer on beerAdvocate, I'm not really sure what to expect. But of all the beers on the Holiday offering list, this is one of the few with a very good review/score on Advocate. So, we bought a case, and we'll just have to crack a bottle to see what we've got.

First off, the backside of the label tells this lengthy story about how the Posca Rustica came to be. I tried to read it all it one sitting, but had to come back to it in the morning. In any case, they weave a tale of a spiced version of a saison ale that was fed to the Roman soldiers while stationed in modern-day Belgium.

Posca Rustica pours out a darker amber color than the standard Saison. There's a significant rusty shade to the amber color, with a nice white fluffy foam on top. The foam is thick and long-lasting, leaving a nice amount of lacing behind. The aromas are a beautiful melting pot of bready, yeasty-ness, but much less funky than a typical saison. The herbal components are evident, but not intense.

The herbal aromas follow through on the palate, which is really cool. In body, it's fairly light like the saison, but it's got a much creamier, velvety mouth-feel. It's got this added layer of complexity that is as much about texture as it is flavor. Right about now, I'm wishing I had ordered more than just this one case.

This is a really cool little beer, and I'm already a big fan.

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.

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.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark golden yellow in color. It poured with a small patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass; these never completely faded away.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of herbs and spices in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of herbs and spices.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a hint of dryness in the finish.
O: The beer is very easy to drink considering all of the herbs and spices in the taste.

Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a light peach, yellow tint with a very full white sponge head.

S: Smells spicy with nutmeg, cumin, white pepper, clove and some faint fruity apricot, citrus and fig.

T/M: Has a high amount of carbonation and feels very thin and metallic on the tongue. Belgian yeast is prominent up front along with some plum, apricot, fig, cinnamon, clove, and banana. It feels extremely dry and very champagne like.

A good, fizzy Belgian, but there are definitely better options out there.

Pours a hazed, dulled orange gold, good cap of white soapy froth, decent retention. Scent contains good floral and sweet honey notes, a splash of tangy yogurt, musty grain, light presence of pear and melon. Taste follows scent, quite complex and hard to pick out so many of the unique flavors. Medium bodied, lightly creamy but grainy, dry finish. Unique brew which falls squarely between subtle and aggressive in most of its flavor components, very nice blend.

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.

750mL bottle split with nicoco. Poured into Weyerbacher tulips.

A: Poured with about 1/4" of white head. Nicoco says it's "look kinda like dehydrated piss yellow." Fair enough, I can agree with that. It's hazy. Head doesn't have too much retention, lacing fades quickly.

S: Banana, clove, lemongrass, maybe some pilsner malt and a hint of thyme.

T: Grainy, almost like a saison, but with some banana and honey overtones.

M: Very effervescent. The carbonation almost mimics a cold kombucha tea or champange. Light bodied, yet sticky. Very enjoyable.

O: Hard to compare this to anything as it's in a pretty unique style. Overall, I probably wouldn't seek out more gruits, however, this seems like it's most likely a fine example of one.

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: 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!

A - hazy shimmering gold full of tiny streaming bubble topped with a four finger head of fine foam.
S - grassy, tart, and yeasty like a Saison but with some undefined(to me) spice character.
T - heavy sweet grass notes up front with a distinct citrus tart and bitter middle. Leaves a long lasting residual mild peppery light sweet tart bitter combination that is quite enjoyable.
M - ticklish crispy carbonation with a medium body and slightly dry finish.
D - fantastically drinkable if you like Saisons or derivatives of Saisons.
It goes pretty quick and if your not careful you'll certainly miss something. Very interesting, thirst quenching, and just all around plain good.

A nice historic take on the saison style

Presentation: 750 ml corked and caged green glass bottle. Brown and burgundy label resembling embroidery with golden touches, name and Roman looking coin symbol in the front seem to have been introduced for the US import (Cervesia turns into Posca Rustica on this side of the Atlantic), back label offers a good paragraph on the general characteristics of the brew, and in particular the historic background. Displays date of bottling (2011) on the trunk of the cork, and 8% Alc. by Vol. Poured into a tulip glass.

A - Hazy pale gold color with a nice frothy head, medium retention and some lacing.

S - Spicy nose, light yeast with a sweet touch.

T - Yeasty, nice touch of spices, a bit grassy with a touch of citrus.

M - Medium-light body, medium carbonation, and a fairly smooth flow...

O - Nice quaff without much to make it too memorable.

Notes: Nicer on my palate than the standard Dupont (Sure, nothing to do with it) but while pleasing not too memorable. The spicy character is not prominent or particular (yet?) and maybe the historic touch would be a nice incentive to share with someone keen on that topic.

4.22/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It pours a very pale gold into a goblet, with a big, dense two-finger head on top. The head leaves behind nice lacing as I work my way through the glass.

Smell: An interesting mix of honey and herbs seems to be the foundation, although there are also some grainy and grassy notes that are appealing. Belgian yeasts are also present. Not invited to the party are any hops I can recognize, although there are certainly hop-like notes.

Taste: This is another interesting one. The honey flavors from the nose continue in the mouth, accompanied here by citrus (more lemons than oranges) and an almost wit-like wheatiness. There is a hint of funk, although it’s only lurking around the edges. As it warms, tart cherries sneak in. With all of this going on, it seems sort of crazy, but it all works together.

Mouthfeel: Very light and zippy in the mouth – quite refreshing.

Drinkability: High, particularly because the ABV is well-hidden. However, you’ll want to take your time with this one, because there’s a lot going on.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, dirty lemon with high carbonation producing a prodigous 3+ inch bubbly white head. Good retention. Not much lacing to speak of.
S: Herbal spice, pungent hops, floral aromatics (orange blossom?), pepper, and honey.
T: Interesting amalgam of herbal spice (quite spicy!), sweet floral and citrus notes, dry and biting hops (but well balanced by the sweetness), grainy yeast, and a lemon-honey note as well. Quite interesting and complex.
M: Light and effervescent. Pleasantly dry, sweet, and spicy with a hint of bitterness (not as much as one would expect given the hop notes in the aroma and taste...the gruit is responsible for this).
D: I always like it when you can learn something from the label on a beer (in this case the origin of Proost!). The gruit seems to lend an interesting twist to the complexity. Pleasantly refreshing and very drinkable. A wonderful saison-gruit.

I received this beer in my monthly Rare Beer of the Month Club. The bottle looks great with a natural cork and wire cage. The label has a nice historical anecdote.

This is a hot beer! I thought I was uncorking a bottle of champagne for a second. The pour is large head of wispy foam that hangs out for a few minutes and dissipates nicely. The nose is very floral with a slight twang that is not apparent in the taste. Lots of clove, honey and spices. The beer is very nearly sweet, leaning closely towards mead territory but with a more mature taste. It is not like anything I have had before. I greatly enjoyed it, but not sure how often I would drink it due to the sweetness.

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.

750ml bottle

A- Pale golden in colour. A hint of haziness but still transparent. Medium fluffy white head that sows nice retention and lacing

S- Very saison-like aroma, with a sweet malt feel that kinda remind of hay and herbal notes of wet-grass and maybe mint

T- Sweet malty character upfront, with some honey notes to it. Lively fruity on the tongue with citric flavours and a delicate hint of spiciness. More herbal (kinda reminds of menthol) and typically saison-like on the back of the palate, with a hint of bitterness that stays in the aftertaste and balances the dominating sweetness. Would never have guessed that hops are actually very low in this beer if i didn't know before

M- Very soft mouthfeel. Oily but still smooth on the palate, with a delicate hint of carbonation on the tongue. Maybe a bit too watery

O- Highly drinkable and quite refreshing, very sweet but still nicely balanced by that slightly bitter aftertaste. Very much a saison despite it's peculiar ingredients, though maybe it lacks a bit in complexity if compared to other Dupont beers

Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a super large pure white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma consists of light funky yeast with very sweet malt base. Taste is also dominated by a sweeter then expected malt base with an interesting yeast profile. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Well brewed though too sweet for my taste and not as much farmhouse notes as I had expected coming from this brewer.
