The thread about brown glassware and skunking reminded me of this question I wanted to ask. Saison Dupont is one of my all-time favorite beers. It's largely responsible for getting me to start exploring beers outside of the Pacific Northwest craft beers I'd been drinking almost exclusively for the previous 20-odd years. I know that in some places, Saison Dupont is packaged in brown bottles. But out here it only comes in green bottles—both 750mL and smaller ones, probably 330mL. The bottles I buy are always refrigerated and kept away from UV light, but they are in green bottles. Anyway. Sometimes when I open a Saison Dupont I definitely catch a strong whiff of skunk smell. It smells exactly like when you're driving through a rural area and encounter a patch of air where a skunk has either been run over or otherwise emitted its skunky foulness. But after 30 seconds or so after opening the bottle and pouring a glass, the smell is gone and the beer tastes just as fresh and wonderful as ever. So I guess what I'm trying to figure out is, is this beer technically skunked? Is there a middle zone where the air in the headspace can get skunky (and thus the aroma upon opening), but the taste of the beer remains unaffected? Or could it be that I just don't mind or particularly notice skunkiness in the taste of a beer that others would find objectionable? This is something I've been wondering about for a while, thanks. Cheers!
