33cl bottle.

Orange-amber shade of deep golden colour, nice lasting head.

Aroma is a somewhat sudued version of the regular Dupont nose: pepper, clove, pickled green apple, yeast. More substance here than I expected for a session version.

Taste is a bit of a letdown after the heightened expectations. Not enough sweet malts and perhaps the lack of alcohol makes the flavours dimmer overall. Bitterness does stay about the same but serves to make the overall expression a bit too dry.

Nonetheless a good saison, but I do not see the point in making a less balanced, watered down version of the classic.

Pours a semi clear orange with fine foam. Less head than expected.

Smell is peppery with some yeast, cloves and green apples.

Taste is much like the nose, with some added hints of banana and a pretty hefty bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, this is sort of a less complex and more sessionable version of the Dupont.
