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.

375 ml bottle. Cloudy, hazy and with lively sediment and carbonation. Good looking beer. Golden hue, or orangish, with a yellow outline. And still bubbling. Nose is very floral, with bananas, cloves, Vanilla wafers, apples, oranges, citrus, musty straw, and a bready yeastiness. Mouth feels lively and bitter but refreshing. Leaves a tingling sensation in the mouth and around the gums. Good yeasty, bread flavor. Also light roasted malts, resinous pine, and a definite citrus and orange flavor. Biscuit flavors with a long hop finish. Florally sweet and smooth with a ton of fruity and herbal goodness. Great lacing till the end. After starting my night off like this, I don’t know if it could get better. Well, I do know how it can get better, but you know what I mean.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Rerate 750mL bottle, 2006 on the cork. Pours a slightly hazy honey with some tiny floaties and a three finger rocky off white head that eventually fades to a big clump in the middle of my Duvel glass. I could smell some skunk after opening the bottle, but after pouring it seems to be gone. Aroma of grassy hops, cork, some funk, lemons, spices--white pepper is the only one I can pick out. Flavor is more alcoholic and slightly more tart than the aroma implies. It is also fairly herbally, with the funk being toned down a bit. Semidry finish with a little bit of herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Decent lacing. I dunno if my tastes have changed since I last rated this or if the bigger bottle makes it better, but this one was really good. Old Rating Follows375ml bottle, 2005 on cork. Pours a cloudy light golden color with a large, puffy head. Smells fruity sour, grassy with some yeastI also might add a bit of skunk (possibly due to the green bottle?). nice bitter grapefruity and spicy taste, more complex than what my palate can figure out. Smooth and easy to drink. 7-5-7-3-16--3.8

This beer poured a warm, murky gold with a large, lasting, frothy head with pretty lacing. The complex aroma is very bright and dominated by earthy notes of corriander and spice, citrus/lemon, grass/hay, green apple and horseblanket. The palate is very refreshing. The texture is light and easy and the carbonation is fizzy. The flavor is as bright as the aroma. It starts slightly sweet and acidic and then gives away to a long, nicely bitter finish.

golden yellow color, creamy white head. aroma is yeasty, tangy, some stone fruits, and a little dust, a little wet hay. lively carbonation. flavor is tangy, yeasty, and funky, yet still fruity and dry in the finish. well worthy of its reputation.

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.
