Saison Dupont, or should I say “Saison DuSkunk?”
Why oh why do any breweries ever… EVER use green bottles? I don’t get it. Green bottles don’t keep out enough of the UV light that skunks beer – unlike brown bottles that do an ok job under most circumstances.
I’d heard about how Saison Dupont is an exemplar of the saison style so I picked up a bottle to give it a whirl.
Pure skunk. Gross. I have a hard time picking out a lot of flaws in beer, but skunk isn’t one of them.
Ditch the green bottles. Worthless. Never buying beer in a green bottle again if I can help it. Especially not imported beer like this. A trip across the Atlantic is too long a journey without proper protection.
