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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

Coarse, heavy, thick, rocky meringue-like head. Nearly clear, yet hazy golden color. Aroma of yeast, hops, malt, and some floral elements. Predominantly yeasty floral flavors with hints of malt and hops. Nice crisp mouthfeel, dry (hoppy) finish. Certainly the greatest example of a Saison Iíve ever had. A prime brew and a prime example of the style.

Bottle -best before 2009- itís fresh. I almost peed myself when I saw this on the shelf at my liqour store having dreamed for years of getting a real bottle of this famous beer. Sadly I was totally dissapointed. The beer starts off wonderfully with a full spicy aromatic nose that sets you up for a wonderful experience. But when I tasted it WHAMO! Holly man, this is what I teach in my judge certification class as being classic baby diapers! And the finish was very dry, mouth pucikering astringent. Iíve brewed with their yeast and found the same faults - I thought the yeast was just off but now I suspect this is the real house character. Too much over the top even for this style for my palate.

375ml. Pours cloudy medium gold with a platinum blond head thatís picture perfect--smooth and sculpted; tight heads of bubbles and a sudsy collapse as time goes by. Beautiful mild tart yeast nose. Light, crisp, and refreshing. Lightly spicy, grassy-sweet notes come through in the palate. No finish to speak of, and thatís lovely. This is great stuff. Maybe Iím starting to grasp this whole Belgian thing, finally.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange with a good white head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with a hint of coriander. Initially sweet, but with good offsetting bitterness, ending really dry. Some sour fruit notes as well. Good body, dry mouthfeel. A great classic.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Hazy straw yellow with a fluffy, merainge looking head. Yeasty nose with citrus wheat overtones....some hops too. Herbacious, sharp taste that is well layered. Wonderfully long finish, with grass notes. Iím not a huge fan of this style, but this beer is damn good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2006
hazy yellow coloured with an average to large white head and some light carbonation. Herby malty aroma, some fruity hints. Fresh and full palate with some carbonation. Very herby finish, little yeasty with a somewhat sharper taste, and a longer dry finish. Rather good.

I must have gotten a sh*t bottle cause this was awful. Stinky urine and wheat scent (slightly, well, skunky). Pours a frothy white head. What was discernable on the tongue was a smooth wheat, little to no hops. Little bubbly, but generally flat, however, the second day upon recorcking, "pop" it was still alive and well. Poured a clear golden (light) color. I could pick up the yeast and spice, but barely due to the overwhelming skunk-iness of the beer. I may pick it up again just to give it a second chance, but not too quickly. (Bottle Pour 08/26/2006)

This beer reminded me an awful lot of Duvel, but niot quite as good. Poured to a highly carbonated golden yellow, with thick pilowy white head that lasted the entire beer, and left excellent lacing. Aroma was floral with hints of grass and citrus. Flavor was a very good hodge-podge of many flavors..floral, grassy, some fruit, hint of spice and yeast. Left a very good, smooth finish. Not necessarily my favorite style, but this was a damn good beer.
