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.

One of the better examples of a style that is not a favorite. Clear yellow with brief white head. Musty, fruity, yeasty nose. Medium body. Flavor was somewhat sweet and somewhat spicy. Wasn’t bad but wasn’t good either.

#420!!! This rating is my greatest milestone yet. I’m getting vaklmpt. Untwisted the cork wire and the cork blew off. Pours a lite blonde with a HUGE bubbly head. Aromas similar to that of Cinq Cents accept more fruity. Stale noble hops with hints of orange and mangos. Palate is lite and the beer is alive on the tongue from all of the CO2. Very refreshing and drinkable. Flavor of ripe fruits with a slight sourness and a lingering sweetness that rests on the tongue instead of coating it. An amazing beer that I look forward to drinking more of.

Wow just great. Have been wanting to try this for quite some time. The nose and taste both had some hops to it but there was definately a huge impact of yeast and wheat with a malty under-tone that made this a very pleasant experience. Pretty darn good.

330ml bottle - Slightly hazed golden body with lively carbonation. Medium airy white head. Interesting aroma; yeast, spices, and some sweetness. The flavor complments the aroma well. Fruity and yeasty. Body is medium and the finish is pleasingly dry. This is a really good saison, really conjures visions of a quaint Belgian Farmhouse.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 Bottled, July 07, 3.8: Sweet citrus and grass aroma. Yellow color, large white head, good lace. Malty, hint of citrus, grassy, pretty bitter especially in the finish, herbal, blue cheese. Quite full and alcoholic. Bottled, Oct 04, 4.3: Light citrus aroma with strong typical hop. Hazy, yellow color, white head, very good lace. Light sweet, bitter, very hoppy, pepper, medium body and a little dry finish. Very good example of a traditional saison.

Bottle: golden color with a whipped-cream head. yeasty- with nourising, fruity earthiness to it.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 First of all... I really dont understand Saisons, what are they all about? Looks good, golden hazy appearance. Pretty spicy and dry taste. Pretty ordinary to me.

Hazy, golden amber appearance with an initially large, white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma. An unbeatable effervescent quality that maximizes the effect on the palate. Dry, spicy and somewhat fruity finish. Check out the link to their website: what a great meal it would be to have this fine ale with a loaf of their bread and a wedge of the cheese they produce.

A fruity and yeasty brew. Cloudy and with a thick, meringue-like head reminiscent of Orval. Spicy notes. This would taste good with a nice piece of Reggiano parmesan.

Beer pours slightly cloudy golden with a massive egg white head that has excellent retention. Aroma is delectable and reminds me of lambic. Estery with some wet wood and a bit of sour/tart. Flavor is very dry with some significant bitterness. Quite tasty. Not as quirky as the Fantomes, but very good nonetheless.
