Considered to be the little brother of Saison Dupont, Biologique is a lower ABV easy drinking saison that as has been remarked: a good entry into saisons overall. The big question is - will it be nearly as good (as it couldn't be better than the original Dupont) or a pass compared to its bigger brother?

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a St Feuillien chalice.

A: Presents with a lively hazy sunburst body and a solid chalk white head. A perfect example of a Belgian blond or any saison.

S: Much like the original Saison Dupont with its "Sweet scented cider apples, barnyard straw, musky yeast and an earthy hop notes", the aroma is rustic and inviting. The only difference one could opine between the two is a bubblegum Ester within the Biologique giving it a Weizen slant but otherwise they are close to identical.

T: Starts with a slight sweetness, that bubblegum Ester noted and becomes more a glass of Pinot gris than a beer exhibiting quite vinous characters, an acidic crisp, refreshing taste with some pepper for good measure. The finish is more dry than bitter.

M: Very excitable fizz makes it an overly gassy beer, with a medium body to give it fullness.

D: Overall a delightful refreshing brew quite reminiscent of a dry white wine that has enough complexity to make it interesting and drinkable. Whether or not you find it as good our better than the original Dupont is a subjective matter of taste, personally I prefer the original because it is truer to the nature of a saison, being the epitome of a farmhouse ale whereas this beer is more like a wine. In any case it was an enjoyable drop.

Food match: This would pair well with light seafood, fish or as a vegetarian option; sautéed asparagus with wild mushroom, potato Lyonnaise and a drizzle of garlic infused olive oil.

I got this at a very good price so... it wasn't that interesting to begin with.

Looks like a well made IPA. Nice creamy head, voluptuously around the Teku glass edge.

I guess i'm looking at it after some time. I have to stay away from the smell. Keeping it far away and looking at it, makes this a real joy. It smells of rotten malt, old fruits and socks.

After the smell routine, taking the first sip was hard. Fortunately, the taste is refreshing. Grapes and grapefruit present. Fuzzy feel. Nice one.

Lemons in the aftertaste.

Doesn't look or smell like a wit beer but tastes like one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Hazy pale golden colour with a big, rocky white head. Great head retention.

Nice citrus and fruit aroma. Some hop character and citrus. A little light on. A touch peppery. Nice.

Light sweet malt and spice. Lots of citrussy fruit and a touch of bitterness. Bits of stone fruit. Complex and delicious.

Medium-light body with high carbonation. Nice.

A really solid saison. Lovely spice and fruit. Lightly malty and interestingly honeyed.

Bottle from Harvest Wines.

A - Pours cloudy light golden with a frothy three finger white head. Good carbonation coming up. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Sweet spice combined with Belgian yeast and fruity esters with some bubblegum.

T - Sweet spice again with some spicy hops as well. Fruity esters come through again but the spicy hop/spice notes really come through the most.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body and a dry finish with some lingering spiciness.

O/D - Once again Saison Dupont comes through as a solid saison, but too heavily spiced for my full enjoyment. Pleasant though it was, I don't see the need to have a version of the same beer with lower alcohol and organic. Probably wouldn't get it again.

A: Hazy, light amber almost blond colour, decent creamy head

S: apple and pear, pretty sweet, some banana, very fruity, still get the yeast though

T: More spices, cloves; a more bitter touch, the banana is still there in the background (not really my thing though)

M: thin but creamy, carbonation okay, alcohol has a medicinal thing about it

O: Not really my thing but overall not bad
