Beer of the Week: Saison Dupont Cuvée Dry Hopping (2014)

IMG_2091

Saison Dupont Cuvée Dry Hopping (2014) (6.5% alcohol): This Saison/Farmhouse Ale brewed by Brasserie Dupont in Tourpes, Belgium is a classic saison that pours a murky pale honey gold with a thick white head. The complex aroma features notes of grass, yeast, malt, floral, and sweet fruit with some spicy undertones.  The overall flavor is a bit milder;  tangy wheat flavors commingle with hoppy bitterness. Some subtle fruitiness and a bit of citrus break through toward the end. The flavors and aromas came together to create a thoroughly enjoyable drinking experience. I was extremely hot and thirsty after several hours of walking and this beer did the trick! I would gladly drink Saison Dupont again!

**This beer was ordered on tap at Monks Café in Philadelphia – a must visit if you are in the city of brotherly love! Read about my experience here.
