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

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) bottle into a custom pint; coded L17484A (late ?2017).
A: Pours a very hazy, dark golden, essentially aged bronze color with a two finger, fluffy, off white head with very strong retention and foamy lacing.
S: Grassy and especially grainy aromas initially with banana, apple, and clover emergent.
T: Semisweet. Apple and grainy flavors mix with spice (cloves and pepper) and earthy notes. Moderate to strong white pepper bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with strong, persistent carbonation. Creamy with lingering bitterness, but fairly crisp finishing.
O: Very drinkable and refreshing. Could see having this on the beach.

Pours a clear golden coloration with a medium, creamy head and visible carbonation. Smells of fruity and peppery yeast esters with a hint of sweet malt and hay coming through as well. Taste follows the nose, being heavily dominated by fruity/spicy yeast esters of mildly tart green apple/pear and pepper/clove, with some doughy, lightly sweet malt and a hint of hay coming through as well. Finishes with a very light bitterness and some tart green apple notes lingering in the aftertaste. Effervescent mouthfeel with a light/medium body and lively carbonation. This is not that complex, but very well-balanced and refreshing. Very nice balance of sweet, fruity and spicy notes, even though everything about this is pretty mild, but in a good way, creating a mellow, easy-drinking Saison for the summer time.

Poured from bottle
Look: Dark golden body, off white head that is super fluffy. Cloudy. Sediment/yeast present.
Smell: Straw, apple, funky yeasty phenols, old barn. Like a saison ought to smell.
Taste: Much like the smell. Yeast forward, straw, apple, pear. Horse blanket/barn. Offset by some residual sweetness.
Feel: Creamy head. Dry. Smooth carbonation. Some lingering bitterness.
Overall: Quite drinkable. A good summer-y beer, well, actually anytime beer.

11.2 oz brown bottle

Saison Dupont poured out of a 11.2 oz bottle a cloudy light golden color that formed a white 'rocky' 2-finger head that held well. The nose was fresh, of lemons, yeast, light spices and sugary. The taste is just like the smell with the flavor of light fruit (pear, peach, apple) also noted. Saison Dupont is lighter in body with a generous carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall, the Ale is very drinkable and a classic example of the Belgian Saison style.
