DuPont Cuvée Dry Hopping 2013
Hazy golden, crisp yet robust in appearance with the expected high head of soapy white foam.
Immediate hay, some funk, malts. Nice but not strong.
This drinks well. First sip is an unusual dip into the barnyard, spices are in there in a peppery way, and then a bittersweet mouthful of the unusual hops involved with this brew; nice combo of the English and French variety used (detailed as per the label). There's also the bubblegum taste aspect i enjoy that appears in certain belgium styles. If anything there seems a dimension missing in the taste, but one which only prevents this beer from being both complex and delicious, as opposed to delicious, which it is.
Feels incredibly smooth, creamy, and of medium carbonation. Highly drinkable off the bat. A sharp finishing taste.

Still, a very much yeasty beer in aroma. Subtle hop aroma pops through here and there giving a floral aroma to thee nose. These mingle nicely with the spicy yeasty notes, clove and cotton candy sweetness.
The body is quite pretty with a golden color and a tall frothy white head. Well attentuated, sparkling bubbles stream race to meet the foamy cap. Lots of lacing ring the glass.
The taste pretty dry with a subtle sweetness to counter just a bit. IT's spicy and malty with just a tad bit of fruit at the finish.
The light malt flavor compliments the spicy yeast. You can hint at some very light citrus flavors at the finish.
This well attenuated beer has an effervescent feel on the palate. The beer drinks dry all the way through.
Very very drinkable and refreshing with the only real difference being a more complex hop profile from dry hopping.
An excellent beer.

Appearance: Pours with a characteristically Belgian head; the liquid is a very hazy goldenrod color; thick strands of lace line the tulip

Smell: Doughy malt with a hint of banana; coriander, cumin and white pepper; hard to discern the hops in the aroma

Taste: Doughy, up front, with the mid-palate bringing coriander, cumin and white pepper, along with that hint of banana; the hops don't really add much, with just a hint of white grapefruit and lychee in the otherwise dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Maybe these hops are fading as the year drags on, but I am finding that they don't add much to please my palate; I think I greatly prefer the original version which is one of my favorite Saisons
