PTN
It's a part of every pale beer made with hops and packaged in green or clear bottles and then exposed to sunlight.

If you bought one in a brown bottle, on draught or out of the case, it's not skunked. I think if it was intentional, they would skunk it at the brewery.

In Farmhouse Ales Markowski notes that in the package in the US it will probably be lightstruck and says he thinks it adds complexity. I disagree, as does the bumper of this thread, so it is nice that we have the option to purchase it in other formats than the green bottle.

I'm fairly certian that DuPont Saison is fermented with Brettanomyces. It gives it a real barnyard skunky funkyness. Kinda like funky cheese. The Omegang is a much cleaner brew.

I would expect that from descriptions of the style, mine however was a very Heineken like skunkyness.

Funk and skunk are two different things according to my tongue.

If I remember correctly, Corona's official stance is that there isn't enough hop character in their beer to skunk it due to light exposure. Kind of hilarious, no?

So they put that flavor in there on purpose?

I don't think the flagship saison has brett but I suspect some of the other dupont products do have brett.
