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.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. My first Saison, and I’m impressed. Yellow side of gold, persistanthead. Funky fruity aroma (lychee, gooseberry). Good medium mouthfeel, spritzy. Good hoppy finish. Not too sweet or spicy. Very refreshing.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
Bouteille-A le malheur d’être dans une bouteille verte, forte arôme et goût de fruit, forte carbonation, doré et colet abondant. Je n’ai pas vraiment aimé.--Bottle- A pity: comes with a green bottle! Strong fruity aroma and taste, strong carbonation, golden appearance and generous head. Didn’t like at all.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Pale golden color with a big head. First taste is somewhat overwhelming with the large carbanation but then the crisp complex flavor comes through. Some spices with just a hint of fruit give it a dry crisp finish. Impressive.

BeerandBlues2 (11474) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Bottle, thanks to ernest for sharing this wonderful brew. Pours hazy and cloudy yellow with a huge rocky white head with spotty thick lacing. Musty oak and yeast (farm) aromas and clove banana fruity lemon hop notes. Fizzy lively carbonation hoppy sour malt and yeast flavor with notes of banana and clove. Fizzy and light bodied dry palate.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
Peachy orange, with an incredible pearly white meringue that frothed off like a bubble bath. Fantastic! Smell is Saison 101: Corky, musky and yeasty, it smells like sourdough bread, shredded wheat, a crapload of spices and just enough booze to bring it all together. Good carbonation and grainy, wheaty mouthfeel, the aftertaste is very yeasty, like dipping a freshly baked baguette in a little white wine and a zest of orange.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
Cloudy gold beer teeming with tiny particles from a beer-like planet. Permanent thin head although the foam starts out gangbusters. Mellon and banana aroma. Light dusty dry beer. Strong saltiness. Champagne like quality and understated fruit flavours. Light grapfruit and a hint of banana.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
aroma is a light and airy with hints of bananna, and a yeast mustiness. Pours a yellow-orange, yeast floaties, nice white foamy head that is quite large when you pour it. Starts with a nice fruity sweetness, finish is dry. Should be savoured and enjoyed. Top notch.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2005
This beer was a victim of the dreaded green bottle. Aroma was skunky first with a light hint of spice underneath it. Obviously light struck in the flavor as well which ruined my experience. I could tell there was a good beer in here somewhere so I’m not going to be too harsh. But they really need to get rid of those green bottles. Until I get a better sample, this rating stands.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
bottle. hazy orange body with a trace amount of yeast sediment. magestic fluffy white head and sticky lace. aroma is mostly yeast but also has notes of faint fruit, cheese funk, and dusty grain. spicy body with soft cookie malt flavours. musty and flavourful. dry peppery finish. good balance. a refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Cloudy and tan with a head that sticks around a while. Smells like banannas and spice. Earthy yeast taste, hard to pin down. Dry finish. Maybe not the best beer in the world period but very good.
