Saison Dupont

Saison Dupont

Ratebeer 3.81 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-
Taste +4

Yum, wonderfully dry with lemon, tangerines and yeast. The mouthfeel is dry and creamy, if that is possible. Aromas of lemon and skunk cabbage (the nice herbal kind) fill the room. Don't forget about the earthiness and grainy bits.
Aftertaste +2

The finish is long and dry with a slight tartness. It reminds me of an under-sweetened lemon meringue.

Alcohol Content +1 6.5%

All this and booze too..Woot

Value +1

I have yet to try a saison that I have not liked.

Ingame Enhancement +1

L4D2 is still fresh and confusing. Another good night with the CDN clan and Meterman. The alcohol content lowers the twitching reflex.

Overall 9/10

Wonderfully tart, dry, earthy with citrus bonus points. I find it hard to keep my glass away from my face.
