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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2324) - California, USA - JUL 21, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 I first had this in 2005 and my rating hasn’t changed. Massive, pillowy head with great lace/retention. Yeasty aroma - there’s so much going on with it and each bottle is a journey within itself. Grass, straw, honey, a touch of lighter fruit. Medium to light body, DRY finish, and very drinkable. What this beer accomplishes so well is that at first glance it’s simple and straightforward, BUT there’s so much hidden beneath the surface.

Glass @ the Horse Brass. Poured a beautiful yellow straw color with a thick and creamy white head. Smelled of orange, coriander, and cloves, with a cool funky "cellar" smell. Tasted absolutly delicious. Good hints of peppery spice and orange citrus. A true master of the Saison style.

Pop goes the cork and we’re off. Hazy pale orange in color with a super rocky head that just keeps growing. Should have used a trappist glass instead of the tulip, but let’s get on with this... Delectable aroma with spicy pepper, clovers, orange rinds, grapefruit juice, coriander and burlap sacks. Flavor refreshingly steals my heart. Paling, sour and refreshing quaff. Orange crème, lemon herbed butter and pepper complete the textbook execution of what a saison is meant to be. Subtly abrasive on the palate while spiced and crisp. Hard water and other farmhouse elements are all in agreement. Crisp, clean and sour finish. Absolutely lovely.

250ml brown bottle. Deep gold, held a nice tight 1cm white head. Lots of floating particles. Spicy and yeasty aroma. Medium body. Malty with some yeast flavour. Moderate hops in the finish.

(Bottle 75 cl) Dupont is usually a guarantee for a top quality product, and this is no exception. Very yellow golden with an almost non-existent head - but the beer is far from flat. Nice fruity head with some citrus in there. Starts citrusy and fresh with a fine, malty body but then you get the very pronounced bitterness in the palate. Hops add balance and harmony to this well composed beer. 190699

250 mL bottle from LCBO. Hazy but brilliant golden colour with a massive pillowy head. Very active body with lots of floaties bouncing around. Aroma is wonderful - yeasty & musty with notes of pepper and apricot. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Flavour is simple, yet complex at the same time, if that makes any sense. I guess I just mean that there are a lot of flavours in there - yeast, hay, papper, apple, citrus - but none of them are overwhelming or confusing on the pallette. A really good, satisfying, refreshing beer - goes down great on a warm summer day or evening, and should also hold up in cooler weather. I’d better stock up while it’s still available here...

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 A clouded honey colored ale with a monstrous billowy cap. lively with soft carbonation, lots of little yeast "floaters" in this drink. Wonderful aroma of spice, mustiness and some sweet fruits. Chewy-musty malts mingle with pear-apricot some berry tastes, attenuated hop citrus and spices..finish is strange: long but dry with lots of berry tastes...a nice saison for summer sipping...mind you, the 250cl bottle is a tease and you need 3 to make a decadent, relaxing, sunset patio experience on a warm summer evening.

Bottle: Dry, fruity and musty, this brew is a nice, refreashing treat. Not overly complex, with some notes of hay, pepper, and apple; spritzy carbonation and snappy tartness. I’m not a huge fan of saisons, but I’m glad I tried this one.
