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".

WAUW, what a head. Probably one of the most impressing heads I’ve . This pale beer gets top character because of the great, white head. Flavour is somewhat sweet with a little bitternes. Light body, quite refreshing and spicy/bitter finish.

TURDFERGUSON (4043) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Draught at Milltown, Carrboro NC. Poured into its own glass. This was one of the first saisons I ever had and it continues to be one of my favorites. Pour is cloudy yellow/orange with thumb-sized white head. Nose is floral and citrus hops, yeast, and spices. This beer is incredibly smooth and unoffensive. Very refreshing. A Great session brew for any occassion. ** Updated rating: Had two more of these babies on draught and just felt like I had to re-rate. This is one of the smoothest and tastiest beers I can imagine. Goes down so easy, but really tastes great with fruity, yeasty, and mild spice notes throughout. Nice use of hops as well. Had this so many times and I am just now beginning to see the light. Bring on summer and saison dupont!

Pour a hazy yellow. Serious big time head. Great head retention. Looks alot like a boddingtos poor just more yellowish. Aroma (is it me or do a green bottled beers have that skunk smell) Smelled slightly skuky and floral. Good hoppy taste. Not the best belgian I ever had but not bad at all.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2006
33 cl bottle. I used to know ’Saison Dupont’ and ’Saison Dupont Vieille Provision’ and they were apparently different beers? This rating (in Dutch) is for ’ordinary’ SD. ’Amberkleurig met een gouden schijn, tamelijk troebel. Een stevige, schuimige, wandklevende witte kraag. Neus van gist, citrusvruchten en ’frangipannekes’. Droge, vrij bittere en licht kruidige smaak met een goede toets van citrusvruchten en een uitgesproken bittere afdronk. Droog mondgevoel, stevige prikkel streelt de tong.’

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
750 ml corked bottle from the SAQ. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a massive and long lasting ffrothy white head that laces the glass very well. Aroma is coriander, malt, spices, citrus and yeast. Taste is similar to the aroma with a long bitter and spicy aftertaste and a medium to full body. Un autre excellent produit de la brasserie Dupont!

Monstrous billowy white head. Spice, clove, nutmeg and sweet aromas. Very tasty, balanced with a snappy finish.

panderson (3) - CANADA - SEP 22, 2006 does not count
pours with nice head that remains for a long time then fades to a lace. Beautiful cloudy orange and flecks of spice (?) or yeast sediment in the beer and on the head. Aroma is sweet, pumpkin, citrus, and herbal. Carbonation is strong and pop-like. Goes down nice, with a refreshing acidity. This beer’s strength is the clean hoppy aftertaste, so unexpected in an initially malty beer -- it makes you want more.

Cork says "2005" This beer poured a golden straw with a huge swarm of bubbles sustaining a frothy white head. There’s tons of action here if you want to just sit back and watch. Smells of dry spicy yeast, root beer and some earthy herbs. There’s also a prominent sweetness that cuts through, but just a little, that reminds me of corn syrup. There is also some wild flower aromas and a slight pine. This is amazingly complex and seamlessly blended. The first thing in the taste that caught my attention was a little alcohol dryness. Getting over that, there’s a musky sour oak and a spicy yeast that dominates. Again, there’s that sweet corn syrup. There’s also a sweet, woody honey. In the finish, a slight sourness steps in with a woody dryness. The mouth feel is light and creamy with a light playful carbonation. This one’s definitely a thinking beer. There’s a whole lot going on here, so take your time for sure.

From the bottle it pours a powerful white head with some lacing. The liquid is a little cloudy with a light gold color. The aroma is of wheat and yeast with a nice freshness and a hint of flowers. The taste is likewise fresh and pleasant.
