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".

Golden hazy. White creamy head. Aroma from banana and smoke... Flavor brings Coen,wheat, yeast and fruits.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a yellow with a significant amount of floating yeast. White head. Good mouthfeel and body. Spicy aroma, much like a hefeweizen. Taste is much of the same. Dry, sour notes with a hint of fruit (maybe apricot?) and some light allspice. An interesting brew.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2007
750ml bottle. Whoa. The cork popped right when I unscrewed the wire thing. That’s surprising. So beware people. Pours a pale golden color but 99% of the beer is a white head right now. The lace is ridiculous. Incredibly thick. Aroma is sweet, light fruit, yeast, cloves, vanilla, banana. Smells like a hefeweizen. Taste is smooth, lightly spicy, fruity. Very drinkable but balanced. A little more funkiness or character would be nice but this is still a nice beer.

sunevdj (3949) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2007
Brux 07. Pours a hazy amber with a small, white frothy head. Light sweetness with a strong bitterness. Light aromas of perfume, plums, honey and a hint of bubble gum. Long dry finish. Quite champagneish.

gottalottaibu (243) - charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2007
hazy golden orange with a big white head. very little lacing. more like spots hereand there. citrus in the aroma with some funky yeast. tingly nice refreshing citrusness then moves into some killer dryness. medium to full mouthfeel with a long finsh. very enjoyable refreshing saison but i do enjoy them wit a touch more musty funk.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2007
37.5 cl bottle. Strange aroma. Reminds me of the linoleum paste from years ago (that’s an honest comment; I have not thought of that stuff in decades). Something of a brown yeasty smell. Color is an orange tinged gold, with a white head that didn’t stick. Full mouthfeel. Citrus is the principal note. Definitely dry. Definitely hoppy. Stone fruit comes up after awhile. The aroma loses the weirdness. Begins to seem like a fruity pilsener. This ale changes from moment to moment. Quite an experience.

larsniclas (6695) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
Bottled. Hazy ornage. Large off-white head. Spicya and yeasty aroma with citrus-notes. Dry bitterness. Pomerance-like spicy flavour.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a large off-white head. Aroma of yeast & citrus fruits with a spicy touch. Sour with a taste of bitter grapefruits & glöggkryddor. Initially a sweaty tone which disappears after a sip or two. Medium body, average carbonation.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Aroma of yeast, barn yard, and malt. Sweet crisp tangy flavor with some honey-like character and a slightly alcoholic and dry finish.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 Hazy golden color with a big foamy head. Strong yeasty and malty aroma that is a bit musty, but brings some nice citrus and grain into the mix. Taste is nice and citrusy-grainy-yeasty - classic saison. A nice hop bite as well with a good feel from start to finish.
