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.

This was very nice. Poured a cloudy orange with off white fizzy head. Lacing was good. Citrus and grass and yeasty nose. Taste had banana and grape and spice, pepper? The malt was hidden really. Very good Saison.

Saison Dupont Greens Buford Highway Atlanta, GA Wonderful Saison. Spicy with earthy tones, some malt aroma. Starts estery and spicy and finishes smooth and yeasty. Well worth the price, I love this beer. Bottle was stored on its side (I could see the yeast sediment), why oh why :)

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours cloudy orange like a good block of cheddar, with a thick, ivory head. Aroma is yeast and citrus, with a hint of malt. The mouthfeel is between thick and thin. First taste presents several spices, notably nutmeg and ginger. The finish is yeasty, with a cameo by the malt. A nice saison that is worth the price.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2005
Spicy peppery hints in mildly sweet estery fruitiness. Yeasty and barnyard bitter with astringency and notes of peach. Golden amber, slight haze, with creamy-rocky meringue off-white lacing head. Medium to thin body with mild-medium carbonation. Starts fruity and spicy, with beautiful round estery notes and yeastiness. Finish is sweet with strong bitterness and floral notes. Chalky and papery after. Nice saison, and seemed to have traveled well.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
A wonderful beer of great finesse and amazing depth. Nice conditioning with good release of gases. tart citric and grassy notes with a nice spice follow on. Mild plantain and grape with a very earthy quality. coriander, white pepper, nutmeg, basil,tobacco, and hop notes. Very refreshing tart finish with a nice bitter hop note.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2005
Poured golden and effervescent with a tall fizzy white head. First pour was clear, but became cloudier as the bottle emptied. Pungent aroma of spice and grass, similar to a pilsener. Distinctive taste that follows from the aroma, though not quite as sharp, with undertones of apple. Very dry finish. Refreshing and complex.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2005
Aroma was of a barnyard alright. Reminded me when I spent those hot humid summer hours in the baling hay. Flavor was bitter and that didn’t do much for my taste buds. Dry finish. Cloudy yellow body with big white head. Left a lot of lacing on the glass.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
(on bottle) Strong smell of nailpolish at first sniff, not nice. The acetone continued, but there where also hay in there. A round, still paintlike, taste, with hints of malt. Date was OK, but the oxidaded hops, made it kind of "old beer" A not very complex taste range, makes it a flat impression. Small, sourish finish.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 Tap, Maproom. Decent enough, reminiscent of a nice light wheat with some fruity character. Not too much to say about this one.
