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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

(BJCP Class) Strong yeast aroma over powers the first minute of the opening of the beer. A good malt character once warmed up. Cloudy with a light golden yellow color. Nice Head. Seems to have used red wine yeast which gives the unusual flavor. Very dry beer with a strong flavor, spicy and very hoppy for this style. Fruitiness comes out in the end flavor.

Bottle. Sour apple, grass/new hay and barnyard aroma - very nice. Cloudy orange-yellow color with nice big head. Slightly sour apple malt flavor with a strong bitter hops finish (for a saison). A much hoppier saison.

Solid head, light clear orange. Aroma of banannas, vanilla, and grains. Mild, but subtle and slightly funky. Taste is bready, mild citrus fruit. Slight hint of sourness. Excellent frothy, full mouthfeel. Finish has indications of hops, lasting fruitiness.

Very lightly colored yellow. Champagne. Lots of head everywhere. Pleasant aroma. Refreshing ale that was more enjoyable near the end of it. Nice amount of bitterness and spices as well.

First impression as I pour is an intense burnt sugar smell. After letting it settle for a couple of minutes the burnt sugar mellows and sneaks into the background letting the spicy floral aroma take over. The head is a dark cream colour, very supple with excellent lacing. The color is a vibrant golden yellow with no noticeable cloudiness. It’s suprisingly smooth with a very interesting finish and lingering aftertaste. Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2005 Wow, more than I expected from this one. Lots and lots of deep flavors, but still clean and refreshing. Pepper, fruit, yeast and euro hops dominate flavor, but the hops sorta clear the palate and make this very easy to drink.

I’d love this farmhouse ale on appearances alone! On popping the champagne cork you get a blast of earthy, hoppy, spicy aromas. It pours our with a beautiful head that looks like meringue. This thick white cloud lasts through the entire drink. The aromas and tastes remind me of black pepper and a fresh plowed field. The color is a deep yellow/orange and has bits of yeast suspended throughout. The flavor starts sweet from the malt and then finishes dry from the hops. It is both refreshing and complex. I call this my “picnic beer.” It compliments almost any dish of food. I did have one once with a tomato soup that didn’t really do anything for me but have it with a ham and strong swiss cheese sandwich! I consider myself a Scottish Ale man but if pressed, I might say that this is the beer I’d pick if I could only have one for the rest of my beer drinking days.
