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.

This beer reminded me an awful lot of Duvel, but niot quite as good. Poured to a highly carbonated golden yellow, with thick pilowy white head that lasted the entire beer, and left excellent lacing. Aroma was floral with hints of grass and citrus. Flavor was a very good hodge-podge of many flavors..floral, grassy, some fruit, hint of spice and yeast. Left a very good, smooth finish. Not necessarily my favorite style, but this was a damn good beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 A Mes rate: Draught at Lowlander. Dark hazy blonde with a slim but perfectly formed white head. Superb aroma. Lovely hops, vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar, light rosemary and a lick of coriander. Very noseable. Spicy, hoppy and grassy flavour. Plenty of bite. Wonderfully creamy. Very slight sweetness. Bitter hoppy finish with an ever so pleasing delicate sting. Wonderful lick of lingering malt right at the end giving it excellent balance.Crisp, dry and wonderfully clean. Stunning stuff. ***ORIGINAL RATE*** (27/8/2006) 75cl bottle form the Belgian Belly. 7/3/7/4/15

Perhaps I was just not in the mood for an estery, peppery fruity horseblanket, wild yeasty beverage at the time I tried this one, but regardless this would definitely not make the list of my favorites for this style.

BenDover (216) - Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Had a bit of a skunky odor when I popped the cork -- wished they used something other than a green bottle. Huge, thick, white foamy head -- had to wait a bit for it to settle. Somewhat bubbly, citrusy (is that a word?) and fruity, a bit weak on the hops and malt. My first Saison, so not sure how to rate it in comparison to others -- good but not great, I suppose.

DuffMan (8041) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 This is available in 4-packs now in Alberta, although the label design is different than that pictured here. Dirty golden yellow, cloudy. Huge pillowing head. Spicy yeasty aroma. Sweet fruit (like pears or white grapes) with a musty yeastiness. Very good.

Habanero (3306) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle: Pours hazy and pale golden with a white, medium sized, fizzy head, that is short lasting, but with nice lacing. Nose of yeast, coreander and grape fruit notes. Flavour of the same ingridienses and lemon, weak malt and hops too. Medium bodied. Dry pleasant finish. Crispy, enjoyable and well balanced.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle, at WBF in Raleigh. Very yeasty, in aroma. Orange, large head, hazy. Flavor is fruity, yeasty, and tasty. Spice at end. Lots of carbonation, and makes it fizzy with the spices.
