I can't believe I've waited this long to try this beer...

Beautiful pour with a frothy persistent white head that never leaves the glass... Lots of evident carbonation present... One beautiful beer...

Very vibrant earthy smell present... slightly citrusy in nature with an earthy funkiness in the background... Amazing aromas... Lots of yeastiness present as well... Just smells like a great hot weather ale...

Uber refreshing flavors of barnyard funk, lemon zest, a little hay, some yeast, a touch of booze... It hits the spot on a 100 degree day here in West TN... I only have one bottle which is probably a good thing... This is so delicious and refreshing I could get carried away with this... It's the perfect saison... Probably the best example I've ever had...

I loved this beer all the way around... A classic and one I won't pass up again...

A - Huge head with light yellow body and lots of carbonation

s - smells like a heff. with lots of floral and bannana scents and straw

t - Excellent Belgian yeast flavors with moderate crisp dry finish and complexity throught the taste. Some sweetness but not too sweet like some other Belgian ales.

M - a tad watery but still very nice

O - A really nice refreshing beer. Good session beer as well. Very enjoyable and will seek out again.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a good amount of skunkyness in it, with some wheat and grain notes mixed in. The flavor is unfortunately the same. This is yet another skunked Saison Dupont. This is the third separate bottle I have purchased in an attempt to rate this beer fairly, but after wasting $25+ on skunked beers, I have come to the conclusion that if the brewer is dumb enough to put a beer in a green bottle, they deserve a horrible rating if the beer is skunked. Other than the skunked notes, there is a little citrus and spice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, a gross, yet I can’t say unexpected, beer. Shame on me for buying bottles three times.
