A – Yellow with some gold. Had a large head which took some time to settle
S-First aroma was the sour, little funky. Citrus/lemon aroma with spice and a hint of oak.
T-Similar to the smell. Sour/tart, with the hint of lemon. Soft finish
M- nice carbonation. Very light feel.
O – Wonderful, all around. Great for a hot afternoon on the porch. I will certainly drink this again

Overwhelming head. Starts with a 10 to 1 ratio of foam to liquid. As it settles, some flashes of lace remain on the glass. Lumpy. The liquid is hazy with a green tinge to the straw color. Large chunks of lace after each sip.

Earthy and sour, like a touch of lemon. Here's something unusual--I smell cooked meat (pork?). Don't know why...

Strong barnyard flavor. Quite sour, which remains long after the swallow. Relatively thin bodied, highly carbonated. There's a bit of light pepper on the edge. There's also a touch of chalk, thyme and hop bitterness. Complex.

Posted from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Slightly hazy with a thick white head and nice champagne-like stream of bubbles. Pear and cloves in the aroma with some slight sulphur notes. Tastes of pepper and light apple notes with a slight almost soapiness from the hops. Finishes bone dry and crisp with some bite from the carbonation.

Overall a very solid saison. Easy to drink a few of these.

Won't really add much to this many reviews.

Fabulous pour, blast of a head fills a Duvel tulip.

Aromas as soon as the cap is lifted all The Right Stuff, yeast, lemon, a bit of cloves, a bit of funk and bit of sour.

Magnificently zesty as it goes down without being too sour. Carbonation dances on tongue.

Great beer for start of summer.

11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A-The bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a slight golden shimmer. The head was a full three fingers of creamy, thick off-white foam. Strong carbonation keeps the head alive for quite a while.

S-The small is mostly yeast and funk. There is touch of spice, some lemon, and other citrus notes in there. Not overly doughy or sweet. I thought the smell was a real highlight.

T-Mostly follows the smell. You get a yeasty, funky biscuit flavor, but the brew is not doughy like some yeasty (Belgian, especially) beers. There is a nice light undertone of spice, and a hint of lemon and other light fruits. I barely noticed the alcohol (unlike, for example, Tank 7, which I also enjoy).

M-The carbonation is very noticeable...big, chewy bubbles, but the beer is not heavy or oily. Definitely a summer drinker.

O-A nice archetype of a saison, which is one of my favorite styles of beer. The Dupont is drinkable, but complex enough to hold your interest.

Poured from 11oz. Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a very agressive 3 finger head. Head lingers with good lacing on dissipation.

Smell is bread, lemon, and berries.

Taste is hefe yeast, with subdued bananas and clove. Tart with a slight alcohol after taste.

Mouthfeel is very light and very bubbly.

Overall a good Saison, but not a killer.
