Fresher than my baby mama's V Secrets out of the Kenmore Elite, Raul is feeling this one. Imagine being dirty and then taking a shower; yeah, now you are clean. Now, imagine taking a shower after already taking a shower, I mean, now we are talking cleaner than clean! And that's what Saison Dupont is: it's Nina Agdal, sprinkling a bit of spice on a pear.

Wooo! Just thinking about it Raul needs to take a shower!

Hazy light golden colored with an inch thick dense off white head of foam. Brussels lacing. Vibrant carbonation. Aroma is of saison yeast with peppery spicy notes. Slight hints of pear. The mouth is moderately carbonated and crisp. The flavor is of pale malt and gentle spice notes from the saison yeast. The overall impression is lots of flavor from something so subtle and smooth.

Golden with massive head and typical belgian lacing. Effervescent

Smells of fruit, spiciness but more like peppercorn probably more from the yeast than the hops which give a slight floral noble hop aroma. Very subtle sour/acidity.

Tastes fruity and spicy strong flavor throughout. Hops are there once again with classic noble hop flavors floral, spicy, clean. The first sip is extremely refreshing and relaxing. The mouthfeel is light to medium with champagne like carbonation early and it mellows out and becomes quite smooth.

What else can be said? Saison Dupont is a benchmark saison brewed to perfection. I love this beer perfect if you've never tried a saison and perfect for a hot summer day. Cheers!

A - pours a hazy pale amber colour, one inch bubbly white head, average lacing, mostly lasting head (always about a half centimetre covering the beer), big bubbles constantly rising

S - belgian yeast, champagne, spicy and floral scents, bready malt, bubble gum, slight banana and clove, orange, light coriander, light alcohol, amazing scent

T - Lemony citrus, yeasty, spicy, very fruity, bubblegum, orange, some apple, pear, some banana, earthy finish

M - Light to medium mouthfeel, high carbonation, round and astringent up front, average dry finish with tongue coating maltiness lingering, not too fizzy but sharp tasting

O - my first Saison and although i have nothing else to base it on, I loved it! will definitely be looking into some other ones to try. i loved the fruitiness of this one and there seemed to be a very bubblegum smell and taste which was pleasant. anything belgian screams my name
