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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2007 Bottle. Aroma is floral and citric. Solid and opaque dark yellow color. Well carbonated. Flavor was rich and malty. Slight bitter finish. Thick body with a good creamy palate. A great summer beer. A classic saison.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 lovely dark yellow with a great head, delicious spicy aroma, although the taste is not what I was expecting. Rerate love the subtle funk, with the fairly weighty body itís just a great easy drinking characterful beer. Cheap too!

DrnkMcDermott (3003) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 Bottle, date stamped "LO6006A" Yep, a big horsey and brett smell. Cloudy yellow, with a crisp head. Actually, I think itís a nice clean taste to start. Light pilsner type malts. Still a pretty young bottle, I popped it now and was rewarded with some nice sharp hop notes. Initial smell drops out as it warms, leading to a bit of lemony zest. Rounded out with pear and dry wine. A bit too fizzy, but thoroughly enjoyable.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 16, 2006
(750 ml bottle (2005) from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/augusta/l target=blank>Louís Beverage Barn) Light and peppery, refreshing...Pours cloudy golden yellow with a big, fluffy, very rocky white head. Bubbly like champagne, esp. on first pour. Aroma is banana, clove and yeast. Mouthfeel is softly effervescent and light. Big globs of meringue-like lacing inside of glass. Flavor is light banana and citrus with light pepper overlaying and lasting into finish. Nice flavor, esp. the pepperiness.

I donít know if I got a skunded bottle or what! Aroma of skunk, citrus, wheat. Pours a a generous froathy white head and has a medium dark yellow body. Flavor is starts off with clove, wheat, malt, and has a very acidic, bitter aftertaste. WTF! I was expecting more of this highly rated brew

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Pours golden with thick, white, creamy head. Very skunky, but can detect a bit of straw and spice. Bright citrus flavor up front with significant honey flavors; finishes dry like a pils. Medium body. Quite good once you get past the skunk.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy yellow colour with a nice white head. Nice spicy nose with hints of yeast, lemon and wheat. Pretty full tasty flavour with notes of coriander, citrus, yeast and with a soft finish, ends with a very little but nice bitterness.

on tap. thick yellow beer with a decent head. Very light, lemon and tart flavors. Palate was a little rougher then i was expecting. Ok, but not a good session beer.

Cloudy pale straw colored pour with an abundant foamy white head that leaves nice lacing on glass. Nose is tart citrus like lemons. Light refreshing palate. Taste is astringent, tart and tangy with a dry finish. This is only the fifth Saison Iíve had, but itís the first one that Iíve really liked.
