Saison Dry Hopping was first brewed in 2010. In line with the Dupont tradition, this is a top-fermented blond beer, refermented in the bottle. The special feature of this beer, which is produced in limited quantities, is that the hops used for the “dry hopping”1 are different every year. This year, three distinctive hop varieties were selected. For the dry hopping, brews were made from the “Styrian Eureka” variety, grown in Slovenia. The result is a coppery, blond beer, dry and refreshing with sustained bitterness. The use of Styrian Eureka in Dry Hopping intensifies the fruity notes (mainly white fruits and citrus - mainly grapefruit) and gives the beer a perfume of fresh hops. Our selection of yeasts gives the beer very specific aromas and flavours. The genuine bottle refermentation, which may be extended by a long period in your cellar, produces a complex and highly aromatic beer.
