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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Pours a bright pale yellow w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Long hangtime keeps me waiting. Residual lacing is mountainous and very sticky. A very aromatic brew w/ scents of flowery citrus rind, a little banana spice, and beer. I can smell it three feet away as I wait for my first sip. Light nectar w/ soft residual effers. Gives off a texture of soft cotton. This is a crisp and refreshing brew w/ heavy citrus flavors from the rind component. Theres an instantneous bittering caused by a persistant peachpit factor. This brew is totally dry w/ delicate complexities of lemon rind, perfume, crisp malts, and a hint of vanilla. Theres an earthy spiciness that is very enjoyable. The finish has a slight tartness w/ a serious bittering unit. Overall: A complex brew w/ elegant flavors. Crisp and very refreshing w/ big citrus rind bitters.

GRM (3305) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2006
Bottle, 750 ml, expiry date: 02/2007; eye: yellow with orangey reflections, off-white head that persists due to high level of effervescence (almost as much as champagne); nose: yeast, citrusy, sourness that almost dominates; mouth: fizzy on the tongue, sourness, long dry finale; overall: really good beer but not one that I would diry in great quantity

LearninBeer (421) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2006
The aroma was great, kinda grain smell. The head was creamy, white and had good lacing. The body was cloudy and amber-orange in color. The initial flavor was sweet and finished sweet with an almost spicy feeling later.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2006
Pours a cloudy orange gold color with a fluffy near-white head. Looks a lot like a belgian white actually. Smells and tastes a lot like a belgian white too... hmmm... Not at all what I was expecting...

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 In the bottle. A fossil like white head with decent retention. It’s not my first so a bit of the wonder is gone. But is still a bit of light in the midst of winter. It has the obvious cloudy yellow with the quick carbonation of a champagne. The greatness is not in the aroma here but in the taste. The start is bitter and crisp with great citrus notes. But as you get nearer to the bottom and as it warms it really unfolds and smooths out. It may be a bit too dry for some but the balance of spice and citrus really rewards especially in the end. I find that it is better to let the bottle warm to bring out the true nature. The six and a half ABV won’t cripple, so you you can easily have another. Cheers.

pivnizub (9308) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle: Hazy; orangey coloured, medium-sized creamy, firm head, stable; strong fruity nose (citrus, orange, orange peel), herbal hops; in the beginning slightly sweetish fruity-bitter flavour, becoming quickly drier towards the herbal-fruity finish, lingering herbal-bitter aftertaste. A very complex, warming, well rounded Saison. Delicious !
