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.

seemed like belgian’s version of a rolling rock. almost a natural skunk aroma, with tiny citrus flavors and light beer written all over it. not bad by any means, but mostly reminded me of a rolling rock mixed with a westy. was my 1st saison, and definitly not my last, as i would like to see where this style goes in terms of taste. very strange overall, but not bad.

Hazy golden with a great thick head. I really enjoyed this beer. Crisp and spicey. Don’t think I have ever had a saison, but if this seems like it is a great example.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 22, 2004
In the 0.375L bottle. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a monster head that jumps out of the glass and attacks you. First aroma was of ye olde skunk, but this ol’ boy just doesn’t give into the photo-destructive power of the sun that easily. A yeasty pilsner aroma that reminds me of a fresh german beer on the platz. But wait! There’s more. So much more. There’s a musty wildflowers caught in the path of the scythe aroma as well. Citrus flavor, banana flavor, coriander? I swear there might be butterscotch in there somewhere! Sweet middle big body mouthfeel. Finish is a pretty strong bitter. A much more beery Belgian than you usually encounter.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours gold with a good amount of cloudy haze. Lots of sediment. Lacey white head. Deep musty yeast, honey, sweet grassy aroma. Herbal hop florals with a trace of alcohol. Some lime bitter. Malts are thick with honey sweetness. Some dough flavours and bread crust. Somewhat like a tripel. Nice.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2004
Honey colored with a foamy but quickly disapating head. Complex tart, musky scents. A delicious sweet & sour flavor, fruit and candi sugar up front with a tart bite in the middle. Lip smackingly wonderful. This is my first Saison, you can bet I will be looking for more!

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Orange gold color, very cloudy. Large white foamy head. Aroma is musty, barnyard and funky. A medium bodied saison. Malts are fruity, funky and musty. Old leather cobwebs and a funky floral flavor abound. Smooth taste. A touch of hop spiciness at the finish, Most definitely a saison. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly spicy.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Beautiful bottle pours forth a beautiful brew: hazy orange body, with streams of carbonation, suspended solids, and a giant creamy white head. Aroma is crisp, sweet, fruity and floral with a substantial skunkiness. Wonderful spicy, floral flavor with strong sweetness from the malts balanced beautifully by grassy/citrusy notes from the hops, trailing off to a delicate finish of sweet perfume. My first saison, and a truly wonderful beer.

bb (6739) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle. Hazy golden beer with a huge white head. Slightly skunked aroma - damn green bottles - but you also get spice, a fresh citrusy aroma, yeast. Citrus, pepper, old hop, yeast, and bready flavors. Lively carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Murky yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is surprisingly faint, just hints of fruit and yeast. First sips are slightly sweet, but ends very dry. Rather light bodied; full of citrus flavors and doughy yeast.
