Let me start by saying, this is not one of my preferred styles to drink. I had heard much about it, found a bottle and now wish I hadn't. Poured a slightly cloudy, golden orange with a big, foamy head that dissipated quickly. Aroma was barnyard hay, bready with some fruity esters and a dose of "funk." Taste was bready with an estery flavor of banana and a touch of sweetness with farmhouse funk.

Every time I drink this beer I realize it is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. The rocky head. The fruit, yeast, and light funk in the nose. The fruit sweetness and yeasty funk in the taste. The sharp carbonation and smooth finish. This is the absolute benchmark for saison, and it is what I measure every other saison I taste against. Outstanding, desert-island quality beer.

Cerveza de un color arananjado con una gran cabeza espumosa. Aroma a levadura, cilantro y naranja. En boca es cremosa, de cuerpo medio, con un sabor dulce muy agradable.

Cloudy murky orange color . Medium body with plenty of effervescent carbonation .
Aroma is a really nice mix of yeast,malt, doughy bread, earthy, wood, a small amount of citrus peel .
Taste follows the nose but with a slightly sharp, dry, bitterness that lingers. All the flavors are there but not screaming loud, just sort if mellow and blended with each other well.
It's not sweet really at all and more of a bitter bite than the aroma hinted at. Paired it with baked apples and it was a perfect match

Probably the finest saison I've had. It's refined and we'll rounded. Most of the attempts at reproducing this are either too sweet or too yeasty.

11.2oz bottle with a code of L16399A 11:50:35 (opened 1-6-18)
Huge 2"+ rocky head with amazing retention....settles in at 1/4" for the duration. Gold, peach opaque with a good rush of visible carbonation. Some sediment clinging to the sides of the glass. Thick lacing.
Deep, fruity, spicy nose. Apples, baked apples, apricot...layers of fruit. Yeast aromas are apparent. Fruit, dried fruit. Just a hint of Brett funk shows.
Fruit followed by spice followed by a hoppy hit that's herbal. Medicinal/phenolic quality that's in small measure and only adds to the complexity.
Medium to full body with full carbonation. Dry finish full of fruit. High drinkability.
Really, really good - will keep this one on a short list. I'd like to understand their coding to understand the beer better.

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.
