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.

I like the way the fruitiness of these saisons is cut short by that blunt Styrian Goldings bitterness. Great white head, big floral bouquet. Rough hewn, but with some delicate characteristics. Refreshing, and with all those flavors, somehow balanced. Makes me want to further investigate the style.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Hazy light apricot-colored with a carvable head. Label is utilitarian. Nice almost-lambic yeasty aroma. Well balanced, yeasty, golden flavored. You think that it's going to fall off towards too much acidity or hoppiness or sweetness, but it's self-correcting. Could have used a little more starch in the mouthfeel, but still quite good.

Great thick head, and full beautiful hazy yellow color. Nice full bodied belgian beer with a good aftertaste.

Had this at Bon Vivant Beer Lover's Club on 7-25-03. Thanks for this extra one Mike! AWESOME! Beautiful hazed straw colored blond. Rich, fluffy white head. Nose full of spice, and earthy tones. The tongue comes alive with more spice, slight yeast, and some dried fruits. Has a dry pleasant finish. Recommended beer!

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 A cloudy yellow gold with a huge lively white head that seems alive. Wow, what a bouquet, where to start: peppers, lemons, wild yeast, coriander, musty barnyard, the list goes on. A sweet spice taste, much like some Christmas cookies I made with coriander once. Finish is slightly dry and spicey on the tongues. Outstanding.

Appearance of a fairly standard Belgian ale, the flavour is generally alcohol fumes. A fairly nice dry alcohol flavour. Overall an average style of beer to me.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUL 21, 2003
A great summertime beer from good old Belgium. 750ml. green bottle. 2003 date on cork. Poured out a clear, golden straw color. Light & refreshing color & aromas. Smells mostly like fresh, piney, resinous hops. A sweet, lactic aroma of malted wheat as well. Some spices in the aroma also. Some lemony-citrus aromas in the mix. Dense, meringue-like thick white head on it as it's poured. Faded to a rich ring of lacing around the sides of the glass. Tasted fresh, crisp, not skunked at all. Lemony tang, along with a spicy hops finish to it. Very easy to drink. Makes the ultimate lawnmower beer.

Pale yellowish, straw colored beer with a nice flully white head. Really good Belgian lace, as to be expected since it comes from Belgium. Very aromatic with hints of fruit, earthy tones, citrus with a hint of pepper. Taste wise this was fantastic. A crisp summer ale that definitely quenches your thirst. Dry, crisp wih a certain snap in the taste makes this brew a must have.

A well-rounded, complex beer. Fun and enjoyable to drink - like a strong ale - but also refreshing and nice for a hot day.

Hazy banana yellow color with a fluffy, white head. Spicey flavors with hints of banana, sweet lemons and cake frosting. Very light in body. I shared the bottle that bigbadbear references below and my notes say "very quaffable" too. Good summer beer.
