3.59/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Draft, served in a snifter.

Appearance: The one finger head stays around for a while and leaves some great lacing that covers the entire glass. It's a bright gold color.

Smell: It's not that aromatic. There's a slight floral hop aroma and a hint of cloves but that's pretty much it.

Taste: Slightly bitter, with some floral, hoppy notes, coriander, pepper and little bit of a sour note at the end.

Mouthfeel: It's dry, smooth and light bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall: The hoppiness is not that present but it makes up for it with everything else. A very well made beer.

Pours a mostly clear golden coloration with a medium, frothy head and visible coloration. Smell is quite hoppy, with notes of peach and lime peel, but some estry yeast notes coming through as well. Taste is a great balance of hoppy citrus/stone fruit notes: tangerine, lime peel, peach and estery yeast notes of tart green apple and clove, with some light malts, grass and hay coming through as well. Finishes semi-dry, with a light bitterness and estery yeast notes lingering in the aftertaste. Effervescent mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/lively carbonation. This is basically a hoppier, dryer version of Saison Dupont that still maintains those fruity/spicy estery yeast notes as well though, although it's also a little less tart. Very nicely balanced, great Saison if you prefer something a little more on the hoppy side.

Great drink to have with spicy foods or just food in general. Have bought three bombers of it this year and have been very pleased with them all.

Murky gold with ample white head. Yeasty citrus smell with pleasant sweet/hoppy finish. Yeasty sweet beginning to the taste, with a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel gives a middle-bodied beer with ample but not overpowering carbonation, and a slight coating of the mouth afterward. Overall, a good, balanced beer. I would enjoy 2 or 3 in a sitting without thinking twice about it!

Saison Dupont Cuvée Dry Hopping 2017 (Styrian Eureka). 750 mL bottle.

Pours a hazy deep gold color with a massive, rocky, white head. Great retention, as a mountain of foam sits on top of the beer throughout a good portion of its life. Beautiful stuff.

Peppery spice aroma with no shortage of fruity hops. Difficult to pick out a specific type of fruit, but most closely resembles citrus or lemon. Tasty combination of fruit and spice in the flavor as well. Medium-light bodied and ridiculously easy to drink, yet it never feels thin or watery at all. Very dry finish, inviting you back for more and more.

Overall, there's not a huge difference between this and the standard Saison Dupont; which means it's an amazing beer! Complex enough to keep you interested in it from start to finish, with a lightness to it that quenches your thirst. Outstanding.

This review is for the 2017 batch which was hopped with Styrian Eureka.

Pours a hazy golden. Some spicy clovey esters on the nose. This carries through in flavor too. There's an underlying herbal heathery character that lends some balances and makes this a very interesting beer. This beer would've been perfect if the weather was 5 degrees warmer, but nonetheless, this is what you expect from Dupont. An excellent saison.

On tap. It pours a fairly dark burnt orange with a medium head. The nose is not too hoppy but a balanced combination of yeasty notes and some piney hoppiness. The taste is fairly bitter for a saison but not in an unpleasant way. Smooth mouthfeel with little carbonation.
