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.

Hazy golden body with a pillowy white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma with a touch of saison funkiness. Flavor is very enjoyable, with notes of citrus, yeast, and wheat. Dry, somewhat spicy finish.

Had with a Bloody Buddy. Gold Coloring. Big Fluffy Head to Begin, but Disapated Quickly. Fruity. Dry. Wheat/Straw... Probably Better in the Mother Country.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Pours a darkish golden color. Pretty hazy. Large foamy head that vanishes before your eyes. Aroma of stagnant air, like in an unused barn that hasn’t seen a human in a decade. The taste is pretty good. A little malty and some musty hops. There is some spice at the end. It strikes me as very similar to a Biere de Garde.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jul 9th, 2004: The beer is a cloudy gold color with a medium thick and fluffy white head. The green bottle may be to blame for the skunkyness that enveloped the sweet fruit and yeast in the aroma. Light-bodied and very carbonated, with an earthy mix of tart fruit and sweet spice flavors. However, the flavor falls off very quickly for some reason. The finish is lightly sweet and has a touch of pepper. Overall this beer is decent with only a couple shortcomings, but I think the green bottle and travel did it some harm. At any rate I thought the now-defunct Quarryman version was a lot better.

The pale golden look with the effervescent carbonation is clearly evocative of Champagne. The crowning creamy head atop the brew is very handsome and displays incredible longevity and adorns the glass with a solid coat of lace. The aroma is floral, citric, and earthy. The taste is very delicate sweet tart rhubarb and lemon peel with horseradish spiciness on the back of the tongue. The middle is crisply hopped with a dry mouthfeel. The end is a bit tropical with hints of banana and other fruity esters. Light and tangy, with a sunny disposition. This brew will always be welcome in my glass.

10 oz. draft.
Appearance is a cloudy honey color, with a smallish head (bad bartending i think). The aroma was farmhouse all hte way, with yeast and straw dominating. Dupont has the flavor of lemon grass, and green banana, with no sourness or tartness at all. The finish is acidic and exceedingly dry, with pepper left on the tongue.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Frothy golden, murky, lasting fine eggshell-white head. Smell wheaty, some yeast, light....pears? White pepper. Sweet. Bananas. Begin sour, some minor fruit, middle some yeast and spice, end sour again. *This* one refreshes, clean finish.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 1, 2004
Nice nose of malt, citrus, spice, barnyard? nice thick white head and golden color. Medium mouthfeel with some apple, strange spice I can’t quite pick out, maybe allspice? Lingering slightly hoppy finish...refreshing

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2004
(750ml, bottled 2003) Big white head atop a cloudy golden body. Aroma is medium sweet, white pepper, herbal, some white grape, clove. Taste is medium sweet, pepper, yeast, white grape, some orange peel. Finish is fairly dry, peppery, herbal. The drinkability this beer has is quite surprising given the depth of its flavors.

330 ml bottle. Pours hazy orangey-golden with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of citrus, yeast, sour fruits and moss. Flavor is complex, both sweet and acidic, spicy with a nice crisp, dry finish. Medium body, gentle carbonation and smooth feel. Very nice!
