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.

On tap at the Horse Brass pub. Pours with incredible attractiveness, golden straw color with a tall strong rocky white head, that when it finally falls it leaves thick lacing behind. Very crisp hops and a touch of citrus throughout, banana clove yeast aroma jump out at the nose. Taste starts with a light dry maltiness finishing with really snappy crisp hops and spiciness in the finish, ending very dry, the carbonation really brings the hops and spice to life.

Golden demi-cloud pour that we’ve all seen before: pretty and unsurprising. Smells of citrus, coconut, warm cilantro walleye tacos. Flavor is champagne/dill pickle smoothie with rauchbier finish. Very intriguing--seriously. I’m liking the complexity. Finish funks up the nose a bit, but overall, quite wholesome.

Beautiful, slightly cloudy yellow in a burgundy glass (all we had). Bit of a white wine champagne aroma. Fizzy and very dry. Herbal overtones with notes of pineapple and cantaloupe. Hard to describe because this one is near perfection.

I really enjoyed this. I’ve just began to discover the different Belgian styles and this is my favorite to date. Coming from a hop head this had a little more bitterness, hop aroma and citrus flavors that I like. It had a beautiful cloudy Dijon yellow color with a brilliant white head. I kept some of the yeast at the bottom so that I can try and clone this one, Cheers!!

750 ML purchased @ Paradise Alley, Jacksonville Beach, FL. Note* to self. Do not open right after driving downtown.Exploded on me like champagne. Poured a nice cloudy gold with a massive head. Remained throughout drink with lots of lacing. Taste is full-blown yeast(12,000 steps a day will cure that) with some clove and honey. Citrus rebirth giving it a sour note but a fruity aftertaste. Very fizzy! Even a cheese taste(which is also the first aroma you capture apon opening) Reminded me of this cheese shop in the Netherlands. I love this stuff. I hope I can finish this entire bottle.

tulip / huge white, tight, sparkly head that diminishes airy and rocky. it takes awhile for whatever froth there is to disappear. actually, no head actually completely leaves... anyway, sweet honey cheese aroma, doughy palate, citrusy flavors, dry and fizzy aftertaste. not sure if i sensed a great barnyard thing going on... i like this, though, but i’m not sure if could ever buy this again. quite good, however.

Tasted in my hotel room, while out of town on business. Purchased from the Grapevine in Austin, Tx. Yellow in color with a cloudy base and pollowy white head. Aroma is full of yeast and spices and a bit of a citrus hint and some grassy notes. Flavor is light, full of wheat and yeast. Bananna and a sweet wild flower taste. Spices, light citrus fruit and a little pepper. Nice feel and finish on the tongue.

Pour is cloudy orange with a big nuce fluffy and rocky white head...smell is horseblanket, straw, yeast, pepper...beautiful aroma...taste is amazingly just like the aroma with the addition of lemon, dough, light fruits toward the finish, with the finish being crisp and nicely bitter...fantastic...

57F. Clean smelling -- fresh cut green honey dew, calendula, farm meadow in the morning. I call froth like this ’beer meringue’, most definitely. Goldenrod. It’s floral, fruity....carambola (starfruit) kiwi. Sticky, bitter....green banana. Saison grass, and dry finish. Quite wonderful and refreshing.
