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".

Bottle. A nice cloudy gold pour, with a large head. Aroma of yeast and some spice. Smoot and easy to drink; flavor of yeast, some spice and possibly some fruit.

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Draught. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is yeasty and citrusy, with a bit of fruity malt. Flavor is similar, with a slightly bitter finish and a velvety texture. Quite good.

Cork almost took out my eye, it popped off so fast! Not so surprisingly, the head was huge. A beatiful cloudy golden pour with a turbulent fluffy head that never completely disappeared. Aroma was very bready, sour, appley, yeasty; very funky overall, became more refined as it warmed, but all the more funkier. Wheaty taste at first, but herbal and sour qualities follow suit. Finishes dry and herbal, with a wonderful yeast element. Almost thin mouthfeel, but the high carbonation makes this very creamy. Aroma remains strong, directly after tasting. My last glass of this was half yeast and it was GREAT. Classic indeed. The definitive saison, and exquisite beer that Iím willing to bet nearly anyone can learn to love.

Pours cloudy pale yellow with thick, lasting head. Well-carbonated. Aroma is of green apples. Flavor is round. Body is velvety and surprising full. Very good saison.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Re-rated 27-07-07 Bottle at Waagstuck, Antwerp, Belgium, 06-10-06. Another one of my beers that after a few sips went Lozís way when she realised that she didnít fancy her Petrus. A hazy golden coloured beer that in truth was no great loss going Lozís way, didní really go to much on it anyway. Quite a good aroma, with plenty of interesting fragrances going on from fruits to spices even some yeast, taste quite refreshing with a nice bite to it and some fruitiness, but this just wasnít really my thing either so quite pleased that Loz took it and we did a swap. Cafe Le Paix 27-07-07 Had this beer again, how wrong I was first time around, it poured hazy golden with a huge white head, very clean tasting light beer wonderful flavours, nice fruitiness this has been one beer that even despite itís strength I could happily have a session on wonderful stuff 3.9 this time around

Bottle 330 ml. Big thick beige head. Slight hazy golden body. Fruity nose with hints of spices and yeast. Light sweet and fruity taste well balanced with an acidic and hoppy aftertaste. Clean and smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Hazy gold with a rich creamy head. The aromas show a spicy, fruity, fresh apple and earthy hop character. At first, itís full-bodied and fruity, then dry, with a quick and generous hop bittering on the finish. Complex, yet easy to drink with yeast and proteins constantly moving about. About what I expected.

750ml green bottle. I hate green bottles! Light yellow color with an oversized yet managable head. Just donít pour too much at once and youíre okay. Smelled a little like skunk and damp basement. Tasted like *surprise!* a belgian beer. Tastes like a summer beer and drinks like a summer beer, refreshing and mildly spicy. I thought I caught a hint of coriander at first sip. Satisfying mouthfeel, especially towards then end when I poured the yeast into my glass. Easy drinking, good for warmer weather. I had mine at about celler temperature, and that was also acceptable.

Based on activity alone This one should get perfect marks. The most amazing Things I have ever seen from a beer. Swirling bubbles and yeast. Putting Champagne to shame... and then thereís that mountain of head all frothy and white. Wow! The taste is clean with citric astrigence. Itís what I call akin to eating an orchard apple at the barn on top of a haystack. A MUST experience.
