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".

Svesse (7775) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2006
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour, hazy with a firm white head. Powerful nose with a dry fruity character of citrus, hops and yeast. Huge, earthy taste with hops, citrus and spices (can’t really put my finger on any specific spice, but there are lots of them here). Long, hoppy aftertaste. Nothing for the "gimmeanotherordinarylager-drinker", but a truly lovely beer in my opinion.

harrisoni (17166) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Bottle at The Kulminator, Antwerp. Cloudy gold with lasting ivory head. Lovely creamy saison with bit of toffee. Highly drinkable. Good hop balance. In fact hops are excellent. Some almost buttery hop aroma and good in mouth

Finn (6284) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2006
Bottle 0,331. Bright golden - almost yellow. White head that disappears after a while. Fruity and spicy. Hints of banana. A bit sourish. Lasting pleasant aftertaste. Very good.

rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2006
(Bottle 750 ml) Golden color with a beautiful long lasting creamy meringue-like white head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of different spices (citrus!!!). Flavour of spice, citrus, some faint bitterness with an absolutely great finish. Some lemon comes through. A very enjoyable fizz on the tongue. Absolutely great.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2006
Bottle. Good hop aroma, fruity, hint of yeast. Almost clear golden colour. Big, creamy/rocky white head. The flavour is fruity, well balanced by the bitterness. Nice.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Light golden with a huge white head, piquing like a beautiful frothy cappuccino. Aroma is soooo yeasty and spicy with hints of lemon and pepper. Flavor is very complex, malty, but crisp, not sweet. Peppery, chewy, spicy, hints of the hops, bitter, and the yeast is still present. Starts out bitter, yeasty and peppery, with cloves and orange, hints of chalkiness toward the end. Marvelous. Bravo!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Pours a bright pale yellow w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Long hangtime keeps me waiting. Residual lacing is mountainous and very sticky. A very aromatic brew w/ scents of flowery citrus rind, a little banana spice, and beer. I can smell it three feet away as I wait for my first sip. Light nectar w/ soft residual effers. Gives off a texture of soft cotton. This is a crisp and refreshing brew w/ heavy citrus flavors from the rind component. Theres an instantneous bittering caused by a persistant peachpit factor. This brew is totally dry w/ delicate complexities of lemon rind, perfume, crisp malts, and a hint of vanilla. Theres an earthy spiciness that is very enjoyable. The finish has a slight tartness w/ a serious bittering unit. Overall: A complex brew w/ elegant flavors. Crisp and very refreshing w/ big citrus rind bitters.

GRM (3698) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2006
Bottle, 750 ml, expiry date: 02/2007; eye: yellow with orangey reflections, off-white head that persists due to high level of effervescence (almost as much as champagne); nose: yeast, citrusy, sourness that almost dominates; mouth: fizzy on the tongue, sourness, long dry finale; overall: really good beer but not one that I would diry in great quantity

LearninBeer (470) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2006
The aroma was great, kinda grain smell. The head was creamy, white and had good lacing. The body was cloudy and amber-orange in color. The initial flavor was sweet and finished sweet with an almost spicy feeling later.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2006
Pours a cloudy orange gold color with a fluffy near-white head. Looks a lot like a belgian white actually. Smells and tastes a lot like a belgian white too... hmmm... Not at all what I was expecting...
