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.

33 cl capped bottle simply called "Saison Dupont" (bought in Norway), "Vieille Provision" is apparently used only for the corked bottle, otherwise it must be the same beer. Hazy golden beer with a large head. Lovely farmhouse aroma with spices and tobacco. Spicy and "authentic" farmbrew flavour, which unfortunately soon is overpowered by a strange medicinal bitterness on the the back of my tongue - I’m not sure how much of this bitterness comes from the hops and how much comes from dead yeast cells. This bitterness dominates the long aftertaste.

On draught at Monk’s. Man, this one falls off a cliff- starts out pleasantly tart and refreshing, and then disappears in a cloud of yeast.

Cloudy golden yellow, lovely foaming rocky head. Catty aroma quickly fades. Notable fruitiness is apparent, somewhat peachy, hint of cinnamon or nutmeg. Mint. Flavor is almost alive, with mild peach and mango fruitiness, faint coriander, doughy, caramel candy. Finishes clean and semi-dry. Unfortunately the flavor and aromas adapt unusually quickly...that is, at first the complexity is deep, then the beer becomes one-dimensional, but then if you rest it for a minute, it becomes very complex again. Hoppy bitterness becomes slightly more apparent during adaptation.

on draught at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia. Orangish pour with a nice fluffy white head. Banana, clove and coriander on the nose. Sharp flavors. Some bitterness, some coriander, nicely spicy. This is delicious. This bar is fabulous, I highly recommend to anyone who loves beer.

Just has this on tap at a local pub. Very nice. Fruity - very subtle banana and bubblegum characteristics. Mild spice. Very lively carbonation. Beautiful in the snifter. Totally refreshing and enjoyable.

Cloudy gold body with some orange hues, with a gentle head of white bubbles. Smells of wheat and lightly of clove. Taste is large and sweet like a powerful belgian white. Wheat, alcohol, strong sugars and lemon. Aftertaste is sugar and German hops.

Hazy golden body with a pillowy white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma with a touch of saison funkiness. Flavor is very enjoyable, with notes of citrus, yeast, and wheat. Dry, somewhat spicy finish.

Had with a Bloody Buddy. Gold Coloring. Big Fluffy Head to Begin, but Disapated Quickly. Fruity. Dry. Wheat/Straw... Probably Better in the Mother Country.

Pours a darkish golden color. Pretty hazy. Large foamy head that vanishes before your eyes. Aroma of stagnant air, like in an unused barn that hasn’t seen a human in a decade. The taste is pretty good. A little malty and some musty hops. There is some spice at the end. It strikes me as very similar to a Biere de Garde.
