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.

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.

SilkTork (5163) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 July 2003 Bottle. Hazy apricot with shampoo head. Chalky aroma with a little hint of stale urine. Nice rough edges which I like. Citric freshness around the mouth with a long dry finish. Orange flower water and stale lemon in the middle. The froth at the end tastes very yeasty. Very pleasant, very moreish, very tasty. On a footnote, while my partner Chrissie was helping me pin down the orange flower water she neglected the meal and ended up burning our sea bass. [4.1]
Chriso Shindig Aug 2009. Pleasantly spicy and drinkable wheat based beer. Creamy. Buttery. Quite smooth and lovely. [3.4]

Poured a cloudy orange with a big white head. Looks very nice. Has a wine aroma to it. Taste is wine-like and crisp. Very enjoyable.

The bottle I had was old...in my possession for at least 3 years, through 2 moves... BUT, it has held up remarkably for something tha should be drank much earlier... Poured with a huge head, slowly fading leaving impressive lace. Corinader in the nose, nice hop spice in there. Color? Harvest gold, deep. Orangey malty flavor backed up with hop bitterness. A bit of banana in the nose as well as other fruits... One of my favorites...perfect on a humid Nebraska summer day.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Light orange body loaded with yeast sediment, nice champagne-like white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma. Flavor is citrus and white wine, with yeasty banana and spice notes. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice mellow aftertaste. Refreshing and interesting.

PeterHollander (20) - Hengelo, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2003 Bottle. Beautifull golden colour and a white head of foam. At first a distinct aroma of ripe fruit after adding the sediment, dark brown and quite a lot of it, the aroma became more yeasty and hoppy. Surprising beer with a very traditional taste

Frank (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Cloudy golden. Rocky with a white head with thin sheets of lace. Banana fruitiness dominates, lightly bready, maybe a bit sour. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Lightly salty and smoky but taste mostly follows aroma.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Rerate FRESH (as I can get in a bottle): Clean noble hops, lovely pilsener malt and slight yeast driven spicy notes. NOM NOM! 7/4/9/4/15 3.9

Original rating Bottle at Map Room in Chi-town. Disclaimer: some think this bottle was bad, I think itís just your normal tart saison and Iím rating it as such. Aroma hinted of elderberry, light spices, sour apple, cassis, and some grain. Very slightly bitter tastes, spices come through but not overpowering. Very dry finish. Very quaffable, good summer brew. 7/4/7/3/13 3.4
