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.

Nice aroma that has sweet malt, yeast, grass, citrus, and bananas. The appearance is cloudy amber-gold with some particulates in it. The head is foamy and persistent. The flavor is lemon, banana, sweet bread, and some spiciness with the bitterness. The palate is thick enough to add some nice mouth feel but just thin enough to be refreshing. Nice!

Pours a murky yelllow with a huge white head that takes a long time to dissipate. Aroma is of lemon, yeast, wheat and grassy, floral hops. Flavor has lots of hop spices and is slightly sweet and sour. There is a lot of citrus acidity making this a very tart crisp beer. Leaves a dry bitter aftertaste. Excellently refreshing with a nice hop bite in the finish.

12.7 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy murky yellowish white color with a white creamy laced head. Aroma is dominated by fresh lemon and citrus hops. Taste is bitter lemon,yeast,citrus hops and fruit acid. A very refreshing summer brew, very similar to a pilsner.

Hazy yellow color - huge foamy head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, grass & wheat. Wonderful farmhouse ale flavors - lots of spices, well balanced malt and a bit of citrusy hops. Terrific world-class saison.

Pours cloudy gold, with a large, white head. Aromas are yeast, spices, and grass. Flavors are yeast, spice, fruit, and hops. Ends dry. Seem like it has a higher alcohol content than 6.5%.

Pour is a clody yellow with a huge frikkin white head. Aroma is fruity and musty with a touch of hops in there. Flavor is bready and sour. Again the hops make an appearance in the taste as well. Finishes dry and sour. A very nice tasting brew.

Poured from a bottle this beer appears a light golden color with plenty of fizz and a nice foamy head. Aroma is quite yeasty with grassy, lemony and spicy tones. Malt flavor that is both sweet and sour with a peppery spice finish that makes for a great balance. Plenty of fizzy mouthfeel makes for a refreshing brew. Lacing all the way down. A great Saison overall.

BrewDad (5116) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2005
(BJCP Class) Strong yeast aroma over powers the first minute of the opening of the beer. A good malt character once warmed up. Cloudy with a light golden yellow color. Nice Head. Seems to have used red wine yeast which gives the unusual flavor. Very dry beer with a strong flavor, spicy and very hoppy for this style. Fruitiness comes out in the end flavor.

shrubber85 (9112) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Bottle. Sour apple, grass/new hay and barnyard aroma - very nice. Cloudy orange-yellow color with nice big head. Slightly sour apple malt flavor with a strong bitter hops finish (for a saison). A much hoppier saison.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Solid head, light clear orange. Aroma of banannas, vanilla, and grains. Mild, but subtle and slightly funky. Taste is bready, mild citrus fruit. Slight hint of sourness. Excellent frothy, full mouthfeel. Finish has indications of hops, lasting fruitiness.
