Poured into a tulip.

The archetype of the style. Beautiful beer! Funky flavors and aroma are present along with some spice flavors. Subdued phenols are present, but nothing over the top.

A- Funky nose when you pop the top on this one. Smells like old leather and funky Brett. Mild spicy smells from the yeast.

A- Beautiful light to medium golden color. Thick white head that lasts for a long time.

F- Funky flavors come out immediately. Gentle phenolic flavors and mild spicy flavors. The malt takes a backseat on this one.

M- High carbonation. light without being thin. Crisp and cleansing on the palate.

O- Love it. The classic saison and for a reason. Easy to put away, but complex enough to make you think about the flavors.

Pours a amber-straw with insanely animated, quick carbonation-- tiny bubbles. Yeast can be seen bouncing off the chamagney bubble-columns. Awesome 2" fluffy head forms, white with the slightest pinkness. Luscious. Lacing is medium-low and clumpy, unlike the alcohol/ sugar twirls and lines of a high-ABV sipper. This nice head persists and stays above 1/4" in size for the entire drink.

Smells like "farmhouse character"... straw and grass, with sweet light fruits- apple and pear, particularly, with a slight hoppy grapefruit quality.

Taste is the same, very nuanced, subtle, and yeast-forward with a funky and barely bitter leave. The mouthfeel is perfect for this-- pillowy, lightweight, bubbly as hell but soft: completely devoid of the soda pop or champagne carbonation "bite," despite a comparable amount of bubbles. Big sips come very nicely through the head.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a cloudy light golden yellow with some particulates floating around. A big rocky, pearl white head has good retention and leaves some scattered lacing. It appears very lively with a moderate amount of carbonation.

S: Belgian yeast and belgian sugars are very prominent. A grassy, earthy, and some light fruits (apples and pears) round out the aroma.

T: The taste is similar to the aroma with the grassy and earthy attributes making a bigger appearance. The same fruit of apples and pears are present as is the belgian yeast.

M: This has a very refreshing feel to it. It is medium bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. It has a crisp finish, leaving the palate cleansed.

O: This is one of my favorite saisons I have yet to try. It is very refreshing, has a great aroma and taste. Very solid all around.

Pours a golden color w/ tornado carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. Massive off white head with great lacing on my tulip. The nose has a very mild lemon, earthy vibe to it. Yeast in there as well. Taste is the same profile w/ light fruit, yeast, and malt out front. Feel is very smooth, it seems a little undercarbonated to me- but it's not bad. Overall a good brew- Wish it didn't come in a green bottle. Cheers.

Saison Dupont from notes

A- Slight hazy yellow pour. Booming four finger soapy white head that won't go away. Lacing is good.

S- Lemon and yeast are upfront with a slight dill/herbal backing. Slight orange zest makes this smell a little sweeter than others I've come across.

T- Lemon and yeast again dominating the taste. Bready touches make this less herbal than the nose leads you to think. Sweet; very subtle, just enough to cut the tartness that you would normally get in these. Little to no aftertaste lingering.

M- Medium to light bodied, mild carbonation cleanses the palate.

O- Very good saison, probably most traditional one I've had.
