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.

pours with moderate head. slightly opaque in the beignning, becomes more so at the bottom of the bottle with yeast sediment. this does not take away from the taste, begins crisp but warms to more fruit flavors, also malty and rich. almost a spicy smooth aftertaste.

750 ML Bottle: Lasting fluffy white head w/ a cloudy light amber body & lots of tiny bubbles. Lots of aromas too! Bready malt, doughy, pepper, yeast. Earthy and herbal hop w/ a musty woody aroma. Hints of pear a little plasticy phenolic as well. Balanced to bitter, spicy clovey yeast, grassy herbal hop flavor from mid palate to aftertaste; some toasty malt, hints of caramel and some green apple fruitiness in the aftertaste. There is a bit of sweetness up front. Finish is dry and has a grassy hop aftertaste. Highly carbonated, dry resiny, astringent m/f, lighter body and a light alcohol in the finish of the mouth. Label says itís refreshing, but I donít see it as that. Nice complexities in the nose, but they donít quite pan out into the flavor. A little too bitter for my palate.

Aroma is honey, caramel, apple, and wheat. Body is a foggy deep gold color, with a nice very frothy big white head. Taste is sour and perfume filled, taste is slightly soapy with lemon zest.

First saison. I had no idea what to expect at all. Would this be like a lambic or a pilsner (Iíve heard both comparisons)? To me it was like a Belgian dubbel with some of the "barnyard" character Iíve heard about, along with herbs/spices. It makes me desperately want to try more crazy Belgians.

This beer had a bitter fruit taste which I kind of dug. A citrus quality. The pour is light and kind of looks like gratefruit juice. It goes down very easily. This is the only beer I have had of this style so far. Not bad at all. Didnít knock my socks off.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Pours a hazy yellow color with a thick, frothy, white head. Amazing aroma of hops, spices, hay, flowers, barnyardt with fruity esters. The flavor is the same with an amazing blend of hops, barnyard, flowers, hay citrus and spices with a bitter finish. The body is full with a very smooth, pillowy, creamy texture and moderate to lively carbonation. Every Saison lover has to try this classic, simply amazing.

seemed like belgianís version of a rolling rock. almost a natural skunk aroma, with tiny citrus flavors and light beer written all over it. not bad by any means, but mostly reminded me of a rolling rock mixed with a westy. was my 1st saison, and definitly not my last, as i would like to see where this style goes in terms of taste. very strange overall, but not bad.

Hazy golden with a great thick head. I really enjoyed this beer. Crisp and spicey. Donít think I have ever had a saison, but if this seems like it is a great example.
