Pours golden with a strong haze. Frothy head which leaves multiple chunky rings of lace on the glass.

Clean, creamy, with light sugar and tartness. Attractively mild aroma.

Refreshing and spritzy are the first words which come to mind when tatting this beer. While lightly tart, there's enough sweet, like candy sugar, to balance this. The body is thin but the cream notes bring balance. Lots of carbonation. "Easy to drink, refreshing" makes this sound like a lawnmower beer. It's that and so much more flavorful than 99+% of the beers available.

2013 Cuvée. Poured into a tulip it presented a hazy golden color with thick white head with moderate retention and some slight lacing. The aroma of yeast was quite dominant and as the beer warmed while in th glass I detected slight herbal/earthy aromas along with must and possibly grass. It had a moderate/high level of carbonation and felt very lively and light on my tongue and had a crisp, clean and dry finish.

pours a cloudy orange pale colour. Hints of barnyard funk under fruity and earthy yeast flavour. Love the flowery, spicy hops that linger and meld impeccably with the malts

Cuvée 2015. Less peppery than a classical saison but still is. I can taste the characteristic notes of Sorachi ace. It's vert fruity and hoppy for a saison but I like it. The smell Is not si good at first but it gets better

Big white head sits above an over carbonated pale yellowish colored beer with a big aroma of banana, cloves, and a bit of freshly crushed black pepper. The taste lacks the big bite of the aroma although it does bring a bit of that through in the taste of this Saison with a light clove taste probably coming through the most. A light nicely dryish aftertaste finishes off this offering from Brasserie DuPont.

Smells like cider, but brute cider not sweet cider. So you get the musky smell too, probably from the yeast. But there's also a harsher smell that quickly reminds you of lesser beers like Kronenbourg and Heineken... Not good at all. Luckily, it's not in the taste. The taste is earthy, herbal, floral, drywith a faint backbone of apple. The carbonation is quite high, which leads to a very thick foam, like champagne. I like the taste but the smells really throws me off.

Pours a hazy straw orange with massive amounts of foam. Gots some lacing left behind.

The nose. ...hopped up but that Farmhouse smell is there in abundance. Spicy with horse blanket.

Hoppy Saison taste but I fear the horse blanket taste got rubbed out, for the most part. Except in the finish where it combines with some Belgian yeast and spices.

Medium body with medium carbonation.

I do prefer the regular Saison Dupont but this is enjoyable.
