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.

corked 330mL (i think) bottle. itís a seductively hazy gold with more head than a cheaply-made porno flick, and it probably lasts longer too. not to mention that it leaves just as much residue on the glass. a full spectrum of aromas, from initially sweet and cidery to a pilsnery saazy hops aroma, and if you really focus in, you can get some funky citrus yeasty stuff. tastes spritzy and funky, kinda sour and kinda sweet, and every bit as refreshing and satisfying as the cigarette at the end of that same movie.

Menís Journal recently called this the best beer in the world, so I had to go find it and I did! Donít know if Iíd go as far as "best in the world" but itís pretty damn good ... Pretty cloudy yellow with a monster head. Light bodied yet hugely flavored, full-on yeast, citric and rindy. Awesome.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 5, 2005
poured a clear golden color with a large fluffy (rootbeer float) head.. Aroma was hay, fruity and yeasty.. Flavor was yeasty with a bit of hay and some citrus.. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation!..

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 3, 2005
Extremely dense and abundant head, optimal persistence. Yellow clearly color, veiled and loads. Discreet fizz. Decided scent, tending to a weiss bier. Notes of humid and wine cellar. Decided rich taste, much bitter and strongly. Much alcoholic and flowery rumors. Fermented and with talk of stum.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Champagne golden, livly carbonated, large white head frothy and lasting. Big barnyard type aroma, rubber, and pils-esque. Flavor was light and sweet with some spice mixed in, citrus, and bready. Nice lacing.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Sweet fruity, light yeasty aroma. Flavor is yeasty with spicy notes and a light fruityness.

2004 750ml Becoming my new favorite style of late. Cloudy golden, huge rocky head that lasts forever. Fantastic aromas of yeast, hay, citrus and with a medium bodied champagne like mouthfeel. Flavor is yeasty, funky, citrusy, spicy really nice. Overall one of the best Iíve had in this style. Great brew!

What a great beer. Aroma is spiced with a hint of skunking, which is probably the one thing that really holds back this beer in my opinion. That is only really noticeable in the aroma. Flavor wise itís barely there, and I felt it somewhat added to the beer. The flavor is spiced, and slightly fruity with no real bad lingering aftertastes of any sorts. Good beer.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2005
A hazy, light yellow/golden/wheat colored body under a huge, lasting, rocky white head. Bottom yeasts pour in later like silt... tiny, and dark. Heavy yeast aromas are sour fruits and dough with lime and herbal hops. A nice Belgian-sour flavor with fruits leading to a bitter end. Milky smooth in the mouth (assisted as such with soft carbonation) with a dry finish and some upper-palate astringency.

I think my bottle was a tad skunky. Iíll avoid this one in the future unless I can get it on tap. The mouthfeel and appearance are simply wonderful and I can detect some yeasty fruitiness underneath, but the overall scent and flavor are rather poor in this sample, Iím afraid.
