I have not had Saison Dupont for some time (past time) and thought that since November was coming in hot here in LA, it would make an excellent choice for our light fall and to compare the gold standard to other Saisons that I could find.
Easily pulled the 2018 emblazoned cork from this 12.7oz bottle. Initial taste is heavily tilted towards the barnyard funk and leathery notes. A tiny bit of crisp unsweetened pear comes through lightly. A silken mouthfeel to this vintage. A bit of wheat bread in the malt. I will have to take a look for the 2019 Avec and for any single-hops to compare.
