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.

330 ml bottle served cool, not cold. Pours a beautiful clear golden copper with a thick white billowy head. Aroma of grain, lemon and touch of pear. Flavor has notes of grain, lemon/citrus, white wine, champagne, apple, yeast and a backdrop of caramel toastiness. Pleasant sweetness with tart fruityness and a solid amount of hop bitterness. Has a fruity, slightly bitter and dry finish. Medium bodied with a very smooth, creamy texture and the perfect amount of spritzy carbonation. Great lacing and head retention. Excellent.

skortila (4436) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2005
Aroma of malts, citrus, yeast and spices (some pepper). Cloudy, yellow coloured with a nice, firm, white head. Yeast dust clearly visible. Taste is sweet, quite bitter. Spicy (perhaps even herbal), some citrus, yeast and malts. Some buttery notes. Decent balance and complexity. Dry finish. Pleasant Dupont brew.

Spice with clove and ripe fruit, some bitter medicine flavor in the finish, but otherwise a great saison.

A cloudy golden color with a huge white head. Malty with a citrus overtone. Dry and crisp, more malty lean. There are spicy flavors in there, but deep down and just enough to make it a complex flavor. Very nice.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
330 ml bottle; pours a hazy orange with a firm white head. In this case I like the beer to be hazy, as it fits my idea of how farmhouse ales should look like. Aromas of oranges, lemons and Goldings hops. Very spicy. On the palate it is bittersweet with lots of spicy character. At the end the dryness takes over and it finishes off with an impressive snap from the bittering hops. A superb beer that is also something as rare as a great belgian session beer.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. My first Saison, and I’m impressed. Yellow side of gold, persistanthead. Funky fruity aroma (lychee, gooseberry). Good medium mouthfeel, spritzy. Good hoppy finish. Not too sweet or spicy. Very refreshing.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Bouteille-A le malheur d’être dans une bouteille verte, forte arôme et goût de fruit, forte carbonation, doré et colet abondant. Je n’ai pas vraiment aimé.--Bottle- A pity: comes with a green bottle! Strong fruity aroma and taste, strong carbonation, golden appearance and generous head. Didn’t like at all.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Pale golden color with a big head. First taste is somewhat overwhelming with the large carbanation but then the crisp complex flavor comes through. Some spices with just a hint of fruit give it a dry crisp finish. Impressive.

Bottle, thanks to ernest for sharing this wonderful brew. Pours hazy and cloudy yellow with a huge rocky white head with spotty thick lacing. Musty oak and yeast (farm) aromas and clove banana fruity lemon hop notes. Fizzy lively carbonation hoppy sour malt and yeast flavor with notes of banana and clove. Fizzy and light bodied dry palate.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
Peachy orange, with an incredible pearly white meringue that frothed off like a bubble bath. Fantastic! Smell is Saison 101: Corky, musky and yeasty, it smells like sourdough bread, shredded wheat, a crapload of spices and just enough booze to bring it all together. Good carbonation and grainy, wheaty mouthfeel, the aftertaste is very yeasty, like dipping a freshly baked baguette in a little white wine and a zest of orange.
