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.

Spicy peppery hints in mildly sweet estery fruitiness. Yeasty and barnyard bitter with astringency and notes of peach. Golden amber, slight haze, with creamy-rocky meringue off-white lacing head. Medium to thin body with mild-medium carbonation. Starts fruity and spicy, with beautiful round estery notes and yeastiness. Finish is sweet with strong bitterness and floral notes. Chalky and papery after. Nice saison, and seemed to have traveled well.

A wonderful beer of great finesse and amazing depth. Nice conditioning with good release of gases. tart citric and grassy notes with a nice spice follow on. Mild plantain and grape with a very earthy quality. coriander, white pepper, nutmeg, basil,tobacco, and hop notes. Very refreshing tart finish with a nice bitter hop note.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2005
Poured golden and effervescent with a tall fizzy white head. First pour was clear, but became cloudier as the bottle emptied. Pungent aroma of spice and grass, similar to a pilsener. Distinctive taste that follows from the aroma, though not quite as sharp, with undertones of apple. Very dry finish. Refreshing and complex.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2005
Aroma was of a barnyard alright. Reminded me when I spent those hot humid summer hours in the baling hay. Flavor was bitter and that didnít do much for my taste buds. Dry finish. Cloudy yellow body with big white head. Left a lot of lacing on the glass.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
(on bottle) Strong smell of nailpolish at first sniff, not nice. The acetone continued, but there where also hay in there. A round, still paintlike, taste, with hints of malt. Date was OK, but the oxidaded hops, made it kind of "old beer" A not very complex taste range, makes it a flat impression. Small, sourish finish.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: APR 28, 2005 Tap, Maproom. Decent enough, reminiscent of a nice light wheat with some fruity character. Not too much to say about this one.

Very complex but still light in body even at this strength. Nutty, sweet and excellent to nachos... Fruity, easy going with many qualities.

Nicccce experience. Some cross between a Tripel, a Golden, a Pilsener. Green bottle produced a skunky aroma on first popshot when uncorked, but not much aroma after that. Poured with an amazing head that wouldnít go down. Cloudy gold. Dry, grassy. Tingly mouthfeel but smooth finish. Quite enjoyable. Iím pleasanty surprised to see that the siteís most prolific raters seem to be in close agreement with me on this one.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Very hazy sunflower yellow pour with a tall fluffy white head and plenty of lacing. Sweet citrusy & slightly yeasty aroma. Sweet but light flavor of bread, yeast, citrus (oranges), vanilla & even a hint of banana. Finish was fairly oily (in a good way) and otherwise clean. I enjoyed this ale though Iíve seen some pretty unflattering reviews. Perhaps this ale is a bit picky about itís storage/transpotation environment and there may be a few too many bad bottles out there. If thatís the case, Iím glad I got a happy bottle.
