Bottle shared in the car in Belgium - March 2013. Pours clear, light yellow with a mild, white cream head. Lots of doughy malts in the nose, white bread, biscuits. Light sweet flavor with crispy straw, dry biscuits, hay, dry dough. Light bodied with average carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Clean finish with light bitter hay, crunchy straw, further doughy biscuits. Lovely.

Saison brewery Dupont became so important because it remained true to its heritage and varied upon one of the old brewing traditions which remained alive in Belgium - the main thing which makes Belgium such an interesting beer country - but their old-fashioned approach is equally applicable to this unpasteurized ’pils’, of which many more existed some decades ago. It has a moussy, cream white, stable head and a deep golden blond colour, just a tad darker than usual, with a light haze of dusty yeast. The aroma is a genuine, pleasantly bready malt sweetness with honeyish touch and delicately flowery hops; rounded palate with honeyish malt sweetishness, soft with mild carbo and a long but gentle, herbal hop bitterishness and agreeable dryness. I agree with the people here stating that Belgium hardly has any good lagers, but if it has, this is one of them.

A little bit hazy; pale straw yellow. Nice malt aroma, some malt sweetness, a touch of hop aroma. Fairly clean flavor, malt forward, a touch sweet. Modest bitterness. Very easy drinking beer. I think that it’s 6% ABV, not 5%.
