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.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Glowing orange color with a massive white head. The aroma was very peppery, with some nice dusty, earthy, sugary tones. The flavor was also very peppery, with a very dusty/musty character, other spices, old lady’s perfume, and some slightly funky leathery tones. The feel was very crisp with a bone-dry finish...my tongue was begging for some water! Nice.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2004
Hazy golden colour. Spicy, herbal hop aroma. Farmyardy flavours, finishing dry and a touch sour. Nice. Bottled at GBBF 2004.

Pailhead (4418) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle: Aroma makes me think of a hefe with more of a sour smell. Pours a slight hazy orangish-yellow with some brown sediment floating around. Large white head with good retention and nice lacing. Starts sweet, kind of goes slightly bitter and then finishes in a combination of grass and citrus. Leaves a grassy aftertaste. Rather complex with way the flavors present themselves. My first saison and I find this rather interesting.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2004
(8 Aug 04) Medium alcoholic nose with a good influence of citrus. Body is light amber and hazy with a large rocky and creamy white head that lasts well. It is sweet with a thin, oily and slick mouthfeel.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Bottle, 2.004 on cork. Very foamy thick white head on a hazy gold/orange body. Smells kinda sour and fruity. Notes of grass, lemon, CO2, apple, yeast, and corriander come out. Finish has a strong taste of dry apples. This is a very light, easy to drink beer. Very enjoyable. Would go well with a hearty meal.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
This beer pours nice and full with a descent head that lasts and a nice lace. It has a golden color and the smell is fruity and rich. It has a nice full body that possesses abundant carbonation. The taste is somewhat sour and citrus and has a bit more hops than expected; it is not sweet enough for my taste to help contrast some of the other flavors. The finish is very dry with a strong bite that stays with you.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2004
This is an outstanding Saison with a lot of caracter and and a good balance. The color is warm-orange with the typical hazyness for a Saison, and with a fine creamy froth. This beer has great aroma’s of fresh stonefruits, fine yeast, touch of orangepeal and some citrus freshness. The taste is rich and very dry. It is a lively beer with a lot of taste and with a fresh bitterness on the pallet.

Sammy (8095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2004
A lot of foam from aggressive conditioning, pouring out over table and taking several moments to calm down. Refreshing in summer, easy drink but not bold rather very grassy. Some coriander and cloves spice and apple honey.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2004
Huge head, very slightly tan. Rocky with large bubbles. A bit sweet, fruity aroma of Belgian yeast. More thin and bitter than expected, is the first impression. It’s fairly light, but flavourful. Considering how light it feels, the alcohol, modest as it may be, is well hidden. It is slightly warming though. Perhaps overly carbonated, but there is some complexity to explore here. Hints of farmyard perhaps and it feels slightly metallic. This bottle at least feels to me inferior to the Fantomes I’ve had, even if this may be truer to the style...
