Dupont’s Avec Les Bons Voeux de la Brasserie III saison of 9.5%ABV is a classic saison to be reckoned with. Traditional in its saison flavor profile, this holiday special release saison is not the standard, nor classically boring. Its flavors are punched up and exceedingly hoppy, barnyard hay and chamomile flavors, sweet apple skin, bitter orange rind, cooling cardamom, yeasty warm spices, and some deep honey sweetness exude from this high ABV Belgian delight. This is one of the better Belgian saisons I have tried, maybe the best Belgian saison. Different than the Spanish Ovila, and Anchorage Love Buzz American counterpart, this saison holds its own regional flavor significance.
