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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

PanMarek (221) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Herbal, slightly spicy aroma with hay hops and a rich yeast background. Slight musty note. Some floral hops around the edges. Cloudy golden pour with persistent, thick white foam. Initially sharp on the tongue with active fizz and medium body. Very slight soapiness. Herbal notes come out in the tasting with some sweet malt backbone. Some acidic Slight metallic hoppy tang but with a dry finish. Robust alcohol toward the end. .

foyle (387) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Served from 750ml bottle into tulip glass. Appearance: thick, foamy white head that grows as more streaming carbonation occurs in the glass. This beer is very active. Color is cloudy yellow with some particles in suspension. Aroma: funky yeast is dominate with some citrus and spicy bread notes. Mouthfeel: thin bodied with an extremely dry finish. About my only complaint with this beer is that it is almost TOO dry. Flavor: yeasty bread dough, lingering citrus rind bitterness, sweet spices. Overall: an outstanding beer in this style.

Hungover (84) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
What can I say that hasn’t been said? Hazy. Cracked pepper and sweet banana with a hint coriander. A really great summer sipper.

Scrumpy369 (442) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle in hopaholic. Hazy yellow colour, almost no head. Nose is grain. Really strong grain like a muesli bar. Taste is also grainy, low sourness. Refreshing. Crisp. Good.

sulawang (1004) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Visual: Corked with a twisty top. Pours golden yellow-orange with a very largy foamy head, 1cm long lasting retention, clusters of micro slow streams.

Nose: honey-floral-citrus sweet malt, yeasty and wheaty. (lvl-6)-intensity

Attack: super crisp

Mid-palate: airy-bloated CO2, (lvl-3-sweetness), grainy sweet lager barley malt, honey, light chamomile, lemony

Finish: banana wheat malt exhale, dry bittersweet hops

Summary: Easy and clean from start to finish. Solid without being excruciatingly complex.

I_LUV_BEER (172) - - JUL 22, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours hazy golden colour with a big white head, leaving lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is orange peel, grass, yeast and grain. Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, slight yeast and malts, finishing off with a pleasant lingering soft bitterness. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. A bit strong to be consumed as a session but very nice and tasty.

polo_marco (313) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Some sour malt smell with lemon and lime at the end. Great hazy golden color with short white head, a bit of lacing. Nice sweet malt taste with refreshing citrus notes settle on the tougue at the end for a while. Light body with wicked crisp carbonation. Great refreshing brew on a hot day nice work.

abirres (58) - Salamanca, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2016
Ámbar, turbia y espuma jabonosa de buena retención. Aroma floral, algo de cítricos, ésteres característicos de levadura belga. En boca muy buena carbonatación, punto equilibrado entre acidez y amargor. Bien atenuada. Seca. Refrescante.

ninecats (480) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow, big massive white head, dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacings. Stellar looks. Aroma is citrus, hay, bread, cereal and floral notes. Taste is surprisingly full, bready citrus notes, rustic and crisp note, slight yeast, malty sweetness in the back balanced out perfectly to a flowery, slight perfumal, even creamy and dry finish. Medium body, low to medium carbo. So great.
