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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2007 Cloudy, deep yellow pour with a great head. Aroma is unassertive but has nice cookie, bread and yeast, with slight fruit undertones. Peppery spicing and earthy hops. Flavor is very earthy, with nice spice, no alcohol presence, but plenty of thirst-quenching bite. Very drinkable.

progrock (21) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Pours a bright, light-golden hue with a massive, lingering head. Yeasty, slightly fruity nose. High carbonation. Some hop bite and peppery overtones. Crisp, slightly malty finish. Plenty of lacing. Refreshing and hoppier than expected.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2005
Huge effervescent white head on top of a light straw colored body. Just a ton of yeasty smells and flavors, you name it, you could probably convince yourself that any flavor is in there. Typical fruitiness, but a somewhat unpleasant vegetable taste really dominates the finish. If it werent for this funk, this could stand in for champagne, it has a seemingly impossible combination of an initial light sweetness in the finish, followed by a clean, dry finish. Light, fizzy body.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Clear hay-colored pour with a billowing white head. Nose is fruity, farmy, and efervescent. Body is medium with high carbonation. Flavor is spicy and contains all the mustiness and bitterness of a forgotten farmhouse. A classic that does not disappoint.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden, rich white head. Very fruity and dewy nose. Super smooth mouthfeel. Long long flavour. Detectable bitterness in finish. Herbal, dry mouthfeel - very well attenuated.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2005
375ml corked bottle. Light golden color, cloudy, with huge rocky white head. Nose is lemon, hay, citrus sourness, mild spice/dryness, and yeast. Smooth palate, not super-carbonated, with flavors of all of the above focusing on a nice balance between citrus sourness and yeasty funk. Quite tasty, great with suasage and cheese.

750ml - Thanks Pailhead - My 200th rating! Aroma is bubblegum, bananna, clove, yeast, and bread dough. Pours a cloudy yellow-brown with a huge fluffy white head leaving great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the yeast taking the lead. Some hops show up and the spice is more pronunced but not too much. Palate is sweet, crsip, and dry. THE classic saison and a wonderful brew for all your senses.

Love it..Rated top beer by Mens Journal. Hard to get where I live but once you pop you can’t stop. Banana, cloves, and maybe vanillia. Nice and floral. Light on the palate and very easy drinking beer. Nice head on the pour..Fizzy, refreshing, and overall a good one I try to keep on hand. Friends will think you are drinking something special and you are.. Way to go Belguim!!!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
12.7 oz (375 mL) green bottle purchased at Monk’s Café, Philadelphia, PA. Bottle conditioned. A Belgium farmhouse ale with ABV 6.5%. A hazy golden yellow ale having a long-lasting large white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Nice fruity ester aroma. Medium bodied that starts with a light sweet malt and fruity flavors. Finishes dry with light malt aftertaste. This is a good dry Belgium ale with nice fruity aroma. Goes very well with Monk’s mussels.

My cork says this is a 2005 and I always listen to talking corks. Bannana, musk, cloves and a touch of summer grass in the aroma. Golden yellow color with a three finger thick head you could float a penny on. Fore is sweet and creamy like banna pudding and nilla wafers. Very tongue tickling acidity. Lots of carbonation and one of the creamier heads I’ve ever seen. There is a cookie/cake/biscuit like flavor to the aftertaste that is positively addicting.
