Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a lightly hazy, medium golden amber with nice active carbonation on the sides of the glass and a big three finger white head that keeps building for a long time after pouring. Looks nice. Aroma of grainy malt, saison yeast, pear, hints of light stone fruit, pepper and a little grassy hops. Flavor is grainy malt, saison yeast with a little Bretty character, apple, pear, lemon rind; dries out into a bitter and peppery finish with a hint of grassy hops. Medium bodied with peppery active carbonation. I look forward to this release every year, as well as Dupont's regular saisons. Like last year, the hops seem to add mostly bitterness without much noticeable herbal flavors, although there is a little dry grass. The lack of the hop flavors leaves the finish a little astringent, but this saison has such great character anyway that it is a minor quibble. I like their saisons and I like hops. This is works out well.

4.23/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a foggy orange with high, thick foam and some sediment.

Smell is yeasty and peppery, with notes of green apples, some malt and floral hops.

Taste is very fruity and a bit yeasty. Hints of peppery rye, very clean and refreshing. Nice, balanced, floral bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation.

Overall, an excellent saison, and a bit different from regular Dupont.
