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.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2005
Deep golden color with foamy white head, fully lasting and good lacing. Yeast and lightly fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, refreshing, citrus lemon and malt with a nice palate, lots of fruits in this beer. Bière de couleur doré opaque avec un bon collet blanc mousseau qui perdure jusqu’à la fin et qui colle bien au verre. Odeur de levure et légèrement fruité. Au goût, elle est fruité, rafraichissante, astringente, agrumes, citron et malt avec une bonne rondeur en bouche.

ryananderson (74) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2005
250ml bottle (only size available from the LCBO). Aroma is of pear, yeast, coriander, and hops. Huge white rocky head with some good lacing. A good portion of the head lasted to the end of the glass sitting on top of the slightly cloudy amber body. Flavour is same as the aroma but with moderate bitterness. Long dry finish makes this beer crisp and refreshing.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2005
750ml bottle. Pours hazy pale gold with an enormous frothy white head. Clumpy lace sticks to the glass like cartoon clouds. Spicy/earthy/ musty cellar aromas with candied fruits and citrus zest, mineral, barnyard and rotting hay, and bubblegum elements. Fruit flavors give a false impression of sweetness... watermelon, strawberry, and kiwi. Also gingery spice, Belgian "funk", and "beach" flavors. Light and fluffy in the mouth. Very dry finish. Clean, spicy (allspice and mace?) aftertaste with gentle, muddy bitterness.

Ratman197 (10732) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2005
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aromas of banana, cookie and honey. Palate was smooth and clean. Flavors of apples, spices and a bit of honey.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2005
330 ml bottle served cool, not cold. Pours a beautiful clear golden copper with a thick white billowy head. Aroma of grain, lemon and touch of pear. Flavor has notes of grain, lemon/citrus, white wine, champagne, apple, yeast and a backdrop of caramel toastiness. Pleasant sweetness with tart fruityness and a solid amount of hop bitterness. Has a fruity, slightly bitter and dry finish. Medium bodied with a very smooth, creamy texture and the perfect amount of spritzy carbonation. Great lacing and head retention. Excellent.

skortila (4749) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2005
Aroma of malts, citrus, yeast and spices (some pepper). Cloudy, yellow coloured with a nice, firm, white head. Yeast dust clearly visible. Taste is sweet, quite bitter. Spicy (perhaps even herbal), some citrus, yeast and malts. Some buttery notes. Decent balance and complexity. Dry finish. Pleasant Dupont brew.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Spice with clove and ripe fruit, some bitter medicine flavor in the finish, but otherwise a great saison.

r464 (1992) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2005
A cloudy golden color with a huge white head. Malty with a citrus overtone. Dry and crisp, more malty lean. There are spicy flavors in there, but deep down and just enough to make it a complex flavor. Very nice.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
330 ml bottle; pours a hazy orange with a firm white head. In this case I like the beer to be hazy, as it fits my idea of how farmhouse ales should look like. Aromas of oranges, lemons and Goldings hops. Very spicy. On the palate it is bittersweet with lots of spicy character. At the end the dryness takes over and it finishes off with an impressive snap from the bittering hops. A superb beer that is also something as rare as a great belgian session beer.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. My first Saison, and I’m impressed. Yellow side of gold, persistanthead. Funky fruity aroma (lychee, gooseberry). Good medium mouthfeel, spritzy. Good hoppy finish. Not too sweet or spicy. Very refreshing.
