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.

Pours murky yellow with a huge egg-white looking head. Smells grassy, yeasty, and maybe a little skunky. No skunk in the flavor though. Very carbonated and refreshing. Sourness up front and some bitterness in the finish. Slightly citrusy and light grassy/hoppy in flavor. I like this one. If not for the slight amount of skunk aroma, this would be fantastic!

I never know what to expect when trying a new style. This one was a positive experience. Pouring slowly could not prevent a huge, rocky head from forming and staying around. Colour is a pale, cloudy, yellow with lots of fiz going on. Having trouble pegging the aroma. Taste is tart, banana, citrus and yeasty. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 From A Bottle.Golden yellow in colour,aroma is of sour fruit with some wood i think it was oak, taste was really hard to pin down for me,it changed alot from start to finish, I got crab apple,beechwood, various spices plus many others,a sour and dry finish.This is like a first date, It’s fun and interesting to start with and the more time you spend with it,the more is revealed. It was a great experience,I must try this again and others alike.

Whoa. I brewed a clone of this and side by side they are very similar. A grand style, strong enough to keep you interested and light enough to fool you in to drinking too much.

I am so torn on this bottle...The flavor is nice, body great but the green glass leads to such a skunky aroma! I really wish I could find it on tap or go to belgium to taste it. Nice, crisp body with a slight fruit aroma and flavor. The skunk is overwhelming and is destroying my enjoyment of this beer.

On tap at the Horse Brass pub. Pours with incredible attractiveness, golden straw color with a tall strong rocky white head, that when it finally falls it leaves thick lacing behind. Very crisp hops and a touch of citrus throughout, banana clove yeast aroma jump out at the nose. Taste starts with a light dry maltiness finishing with really snappy crisp hops and spiciness in the finish, ending very dry, the carbonation really brings the hops and spice to life.

Golden demi-cloud pour that we’ve all seen before: pretty and unsurprising. Smells of citrus, coconut, warm cilantro walleye tacos. Flavor is champagne/dill pickle smoothie with rauchbier finish. Very intriguing--seriously. I’m liking the complexity. Finish funks up the nose a bit, but overall, quite wholesome.

Beautiful, slightly cloudy yellow in a burgundy glass (all we had). Bit of a white wine champagne aroma. Fizzy and very dry. Herbal overtones with notes of pineapple and cantaloupe. Hard to describe because this one is near perfection.

I really enjoyed this. I’ve just began to discover the different Belgian styles and this is my favorite to date. Coming from a hop head this had a little more bitterness, hop aroma and citrus flavors that I like. It had a beautiful cloudy Dijon yellow color with a brilliant white head. I kept some of the yeast at the bottom so that I can try and clone this one, Cheers!!
