COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Saison Dupont is a classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is a beautifully balanced, complex beer that has a refreshing fruitiness and long, dry finish. It is bottled unfiltered so it may be cloudy or have a slight sediment but this is normal and perfectly natural.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

Bijl (90) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Goudgele Saison, troebel met een ferme witte schuimkraag. Schuim blijft lang aanwezig. Mooie koolzuurpareling houden het schuim lang aanwezig. In de Aroma citrus, fruitig, zoete mouten, hooi en gras, Belgische gist en ietsje kruidig. Smaak is Moutig en tarweachtig, subtiele gisttone van Bubblegum en Banaan, iets bloemig en aarde achtig. Kruidig/peper, ietsje wrang en droog. In de afdronke lekker bitter gehopt. Veel koolzuur geeft een actief gevoel in de mond, body is medium, mondgevoel is zacht en iets romig. Lekker fris en zomers...... Prachtig dat alle diverse smaken en geuren zo mooi in balans zijn! Een aanrader!

LazyPyro (364) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
33cl bottle. Cloudy pale orange colour, thick white head, fair amount of fine sediment. Aroma is citrus, yeast, spices, sweet malt and hops. Slightly sweetish flavour with malt, mellows out with the acidic fruity citrus flavours, spices and yeast, with a dry hoppy finish. Really well balanced beer, very refreshing.

Moebbels (661) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2016
An otherwise clear body that is clouded by large yeast particles. The white, fluffy head settles quickly. Nose has some acidic fruity notes, mild yeast esters, spices and herbs. Taste is very dry with a lingering tart finish that eventually transforms to bitterness. Very high carbonation and light palate. A good, well rounded saison that could have a more funky yeast aroma.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016: Saison magistrale. Un esempio perfetto dello stile. Al naso aromi di pepe e mela. La birra ha un colore molto pallido con schiuma bianca e leggera torbidità. In bocca, fin da subito, prevale l’amaro con una punta di dolcezza che si attenua via via. Finale lungo, sempre equilibrato. La birra è secca e la carbonatazione rendendo la birra fresca ed estremamente piacevole.

nosajhongkong (5) - HONG KONG - MAY 10, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 0,75L bottle from Frites at Wanchai, Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a bright golden and hazy colour. The white head is extremely rich and frothy with very lively carbonation. Probably one of the best head out there. Aroma: Herbal freshness with earthy and yeasty hop aromas, followed by hints of citric and peppery smell. Taste: The taste is moderately tart, moderately sour with herba and grassy bitterness. Palate: Medium body with long-lasting dry finish. Delicate mouthfeel with lively and fizzy carbonation. Saison Dupont is a splendid beer! As a newbie, it introduces what a classic Belgian farmhouse saison tastes and smells like. It also gets me into tasting and enjoying different styles of beer. I am definitely recommending this to my friends and am looking forward to having more of this, especially in a hot and humid summer. Overall, the refreshing sour and bitter taste combine with the delicate aroma and appearance have made this beer as a sensational masterpiece.

Tognetta (650) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 5, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 Alaranjada de média turbidez, espuma branca abundante, carbonatada, de longa persistência. Aroma de lúpulo tipo belga, alaranjado, fermento aparente, adocicada. Paladar de leve/médio dulçor, leve acidez. Corpo leve, alta carbonatação. Final mantém o fermento e cítrico iniciais, tempero fica aparente, muitíssimo bem equilibrada, uma jóia belga !

MartyW (46) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2016
Hazy golden/orange color with a huge, soapy, thick, white head. Aroma is light cheesy with earthy notes as well as different spices. Taste has lots of spices, a lot of yeast, light fruit, malt, earthy and grassy. Quite sweet, light bitter with a dry citric finish. A good saison, but for me only as something to have every once in a while (maybe even years in between)
