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.

Bottle. Light, fluffy white head that pours a golden haze with lots of unfiltered particles. Sweet citrocy aroma with nice carbonation and citrous body. Similar to Duvel, but lacks something.

I think I got a slightly skunky one. After the skunkiness seemed to go away, very spicy, similar to a belgian white. Taste has banana, maltiness on the finish, tastes similar to all the other witbiers Iíve had. I had this before on tap and it was very good, but this is kind of unimpressive from the bomber.

Pours a hazy yellowish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, hint of citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. Not for me.

Quite similar to a Belgian blonde - easy-drinking and smooth. Lively carbonation, splendid finish leaving a pleasnat bitter taste.

Bottle. I would equate this to a homebrewing experiment gone bad. A huge disappointment.Pours with a hazy straw color and a medium head. The aroma is ok, mustiness, yeast and hops. The flavor however is terrible. Essentially watery with an unpleasant bitter note at the end, that lasts. Pretty bad. The upside was that it was a 375ml bottle, I doubt that I could have finshed a large one.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2011 Bottled. 33cl. Sparkling, orange and hazy, with a nice stable, off-white head. The aroma has a sourness in the aroma with some yeastiness and a medicine-like note. Light citric and bitter with mould and spicyness coming through. Mild bitter finish with some alcohol. Has some metallic and medicine notes too. Not sure I like that too much.

Bottle, 33cl. It pours a slightly cloudy, unclear body, golden in color and with a two-finger white head leaving lacings. Some butterscotch on the nose, quite a lot actually, and fruity, hoppy aromas too. Slightly spiced. Some yeast notes? Itís dry and medium bodied, well carbonated. Buttery maltyness followed by hoppy bitterness, pine cone hints, medicine, yeast and green apples. Doughy, yeasty finish with a lovely bitterness and fruits and some pale malts. Overall, I donít care too much of the aroma, itís too buttery, but then I taste it, and after the first swallow it gets quite lovely. A strange beer I might never fully understand. Would like to have it readily available though. 110121

12oz bottle from table and vine. My friendís buddy in Boston works for a wine store. I asked him if they sell beer also and he knew a little about beer. He told me to grab one of these. It poured into a tulip half beer and half head. Smells like sweet lemon. First sip (chilled) tastes like lemon and musty funk. This is a nice citrus peppery dry beer as it warms. This is so easy to drink that I think that I might get some friends to try it. The only other saison I have had was the fantome.... that was a nice beer too.

12oz bottle from Belgium. Poured fairly clear, with a good head and lots of carbonation. Light clean taste with a small amount of citrus and not too much bitterness. If it was easily obtainable here in Utah, this would be my regualr summer beer.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2006
Champagne like dryness and very lively carbonation. Tart and bitter, almost like a club soda or mildly salty flavor. Some citrus like lemon pith. Not as fruity as I would have expected. really is a good beer to drink on a hot day or maybe with picnic food. Cloudy, opaque golden yellow. Want to try it again.

Yellow-gold unfiltered hazy, big froathy head. Very lively carbonation. Itís a warm day here, so I thought it would be a good time to try a Belgium Saison. Hay, citrusy aroma, fruity, and a bit of that green bottle scent, only at first. A very dry hoppiness and has a mild limey sourness. A salty dryness lingers. This is moderatly complex and refreshing. This beer is better than I probably make it sound.
