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

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.

750 ml bottle dated April 2016 into pint glass. Let me preface this by admitting that a) I don't particularly like Belgian beers, and b) I found this in the fridge at the beach house and am drinking it because I respect beer. Even Belgian beer. The bottled date is somewhat off-putting, but my expectations are low, so.....
Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber color with a coarse but surprisingly persistent off-white head. Initial impression is yeasty and sweet, with a slight banana overlay, strong fruits, and herbal notes. Mouthfeel was fairly light and refreshing; carbonation was fairly high. Finish was dry and clean.
Well. A pleasant surprise. Despite all odds - including the bottling date and my prejudicial opinions - this was pretty damn good!
Perhaps this is yet another turning pint for me: I drank PBR exclusively for almost 40 years, then discovered IPAs. Then stouts. Then NEIPAs. Maybe now I've expanded my horizons to include Belgians.
