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.

Golden. Nose of spices, banana peel, tangerine, orange, spices, bready malt and herbs. Pleasant, great for the style flavor profile, with notes of banana bread, bready malts, light fruits (green apples), a bit of tartness and perhaps some spicing, coriander if I am not mistaken.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2004
On tap at o’briens- Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow-gloden hue with a light white head. Aromas of yeastiness, and a little spice. Flavors of a spritzy hefeweisse which may be it’s down fall. Not the greatest example of a style that still seems so broad.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - SEP 24, 2004
I’m really not sure which one I had. I had it on draft at Obrien’s. Tastes like a wit with more guts. Spicy, with lemon, corriander, bla bla bla. What I would recommend to a girl looking for something not too strong.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours a hazy amber colour. Head erupted like Vesuvius and required some time to settle before I could pour the whole thing into a glass. Some yeast bits floating around. Beautiful aromas of spices, pepper with some alcohol apparent. taste of spices and citrus with a bit of an apple taste at the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Bottled. A hazy orange coloured beer with a very big white head and bubbles by the million. Extremely complex but very tasty with hints of coriander amongst many other spices; lemon and black pepper. The nose in particular has lots of pepper. A truly delicious beer. Score 4.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.4. Average becomes 3.8

Glowing apricot color with a large frothy white head. Pepper, strawberry, dust and bread aroma. Very pepperey, dusty apricot flavor. Extremely dry finish. Very interesting.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Glowing orange color with a massive white head. The aroma was very peppery, with some nice dusty, earthy, sugary tones. The flavor was also very peppery, with a very dusty/musty character, other spices, old lady’s perfume, and some slightly funky leathery tones. The feel was very crisp with a bone-dry finish...my tongue was begging for some water! Nice.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2004
Hazy golden colour. Spicy, herbal hop aroma. Farmyardy flavours, finishing dry and a touch sour. Nice. Bottled at GBBF 2004.

Pailhead (5424) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle: Aroma makes me think of a hefe with more of a sour smell. Pours a slight hazy orangish-yellow with some brown sediment floating around. Large white head with good retention and nice lacing. Starts sweet, kind of goes slightly bitter and then finishes in a combination of grass and citrus. Leaves a grassy aftertaste. Rather complex with way the flavors present themselves. My first saison and I find this rather interesting.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2004
(8 Aug 04) Medium alcoholic nose with a good influence of citrus. Body is light amber and hazy with a large rocky and creamy white head that lasts well. It is sweet with a thin, oily and slick mouthfeel.
