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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 Score bumped up. Easily in my top ten beers in the world as of Dec-06 and pretty much a bench mark for Saison. (Original Rating 9-5-9-3-17=4.3): Citrus, banana, strong cheese aromas. Generous and long lasting merangue-like white head with plenty of lacing. Spicy and dry flavour with some bitterness. A sweet start leads to a slight sourness through the middle and a long dry finish. Would perhaps enjoy a slightly fuller body but as is I could drink plenty of this. Bottle.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2003

Opaque, pale gold body with a thin white head. No lacing.
Lemon/banana, yeast and some spice to the aroma. Very fragrant.
Lemon and a slight sourness dominates. Lots of very distinct yeast. Dense and complex. Some Belgian candi sugar in here too? Spicy hop finish.
Medium bodied with a dry, crisp finish. Carbonated like champagne.

thehoff (585) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2003
This really is one crazy farm ale. THe flavor is definitely intense and I would recommend sharing the bottle with a couple of friends. The cloudy citrus blend is bursting with flavor. Great beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2003
A huge creamy egg white frothy head, with a pour that is somewhat golden-orange in appearance. Incredible lacing, with some flavors, that are quite robust and very dominant, a musty, ranch saddle, musty sweat like flavor at times, with some fruity hints like pear and banana. Very spicey and complex, but also very very dry. I like it alot!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Pours a golden misty gold with orange tinge. Puffy white head with tons of lacing. Aroma has notes of citrus, barnyard, cheese, banana, clove, bubblegum; in that order. Flavor is very complex with some nice funky cobbwebb flavors along with the aformentioned aromas; spicy too! Finishes VERY dry with a light sweetness. I really liked this saison, it was just like a subtle Avec Les Bons Voeux.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2003
Clear golden color, white short lasting head. Tiny particles. Spicy aroma, yeasty but also fruity, cheesy. Bit like Dupont avec les bons veux. Quite sharp palate, despite only 6.5 %.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2003
Bottle conditioned. GBBF2003 (saison tasting session). Golden amber colour, good white head and quite high condition. More intense aromas than the Biolegere, with grainy fruit and honey and some background yeast and peppery spiciness. Sweet in the mouth, full bodied and malty with co2 more apparent. Pleasant dry bitter yeastiness in the long finish.
