COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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".

330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy gold, with an aroma of grass, straw and yeast. The flavour is similar to a Belgian blonde, but with fruity overtones and a spiciness to it. The finish is bitter and the palate just right. A supremely drinkable Saison.

Split a bottle with my wife and really enjoyed it. The smell reminded me of Brugge right away. The flavor was not a strong as I expected, but was really smooth. It finishes long and dry. I would get this again.

Periander (50) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Pours cloudy gold with a citric, yeasty and floral nose. Flavor starts moderately sweet with some citric acidity and a peppery note along with a moderate hop bitterness that stays through a long dry finish. Certainly a style to investigate further.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 9, 2007
Really impressed with this. Huge sparkling whiter-than-white head contrasts nicely with glowing orange body. Small traces of sediment. Lively nose of fruit (banana), citrus, hops and warming spices. Palate weight is quite strong and probably plays above the 6.5%. Cloves, aniseed, liquered notes, quite thick and resiny. Definately traces of a Belgian blonde in flavour. Finishes strongly with some bitter hops and a whack of aniseed. Most enjoyable. (2005 Vintage? BB 3/2008)

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Fresh, lively, yeasty and hoppy. Dull gold with a faint haze. Nose invitingly estery with banana, juicy citrus and a slightly lambic edge of wood and vinegar. Zestily fruity with a tang of orange and robustly bitter hops. Possibly some wheat and a dusting of anise-like spice. A bit wit, a bit Lambic, a bit drily spicy blond. Tasty, quenching Saison.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2007
330 ml bottle. Poured a clear pale gold with a massive, rocky head. Aroma of grass, herbs and lemon. Multiple flavours: spices, herbs, citrus, grain. Slightly sour on the tongue before a bitter, dry finish. World class.

Rictus (126) - Dothan, Alabama, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Such a funky romantic aroma. Somewhat tart in the smell too. Dark gold with a thick, full, cottony-looking head. A slight haze and lots of bubbles. Crisp dry start with a tart funky finish. A bit of a forgivable aftertaste. Slight bitterness too. The moutfeel is a bit disappointing. Alittle flat. Alittle watery. Maybe my fault. A damn good beer which my rating does not do justice.
