Little brother to Saison Dupont in ABV and also intensity of flavour, but still a good solid effort. All barnyard and fuk on nose, but taste somewhat more straighforward, albeit still very earthy.

Golden crystal clear color with a huge thick mushroom head with excellent retention and leaving good laces. It was a surprise given it says it is not filtered (at the end it had yeast).
Aroma with notes of biscuit, lots of yeast despite of its clear appearance, herbal hops, mild cloves, banana and pineapple.
Nice Flavor with notes of lemongrass, oranges, Belgian yeast, slight tart green apple, herbal hops, coriander, white pepper, pineapple, lemon and white wine. Dry aftertaste with a mild to medium bitterness.
Medium body with good effervescent carbonation.
I found it a quite interesting Saison, one of the least cloying I ever had and still with a great complexity and deliciously spiced. Glad it does not substitute the regular Saison Dupont, you can enjoy both for different cravings; this one is more refreshing and lighter but still carries its key characteristics.

A refreshing saison with classic Belgium aromas and flavours with hints of white wine.

aroma: sweet spiced aromas with Belgium yeast, clove and a hint of tartness all coming through on the nose.

taste: clove, spice, orange, lemon, banana, bubblegum, pepper, grains and slight apple.

A nice bottle to share with someone. One of the best things about this beer is that it's organic - wish there were more organic beers out there.

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.

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.
