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.

My bottle actually said "Saison Dupont Farmhouse Ale" so I guess it's the same one.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Light brown color with a pillowy tan head. Luscious strawberry aroma accompanied by yeast and minor hop notes. This beer is quite dry with a yeasty tinge and a fair, spicy hop presence and a dry, hoppy finish. Coriander and other spices up front and through the middle. Maybe a tad light in body, but this IS a thirst quencher. Yeasty, bready aroma and flavors really start to shine as the beer warms.

Big white head, hazy yellow-gold color. I felt the flavor might have been a bit thin, but that certainly shouldn't detract from an otherwise fine beer.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 (I revisit this beer at least once a month - I’m drinking one now - so dry, so flinty, so delicious - I really could drink this every day)[I thought I had updated this rating months ago - hmmm - anyway, this beer keeps getting better the more I have of it - with some age on it, it gets the perfect background funky complexity that compliments the other characteristics perfectly - this is a classic saison, and a rare example of one that gets much better with age] Cloudy golden, fluffy, lasting head - wonderful, candy-like aroma, with touches of mustiness and earthy tones - mild and refreshing - very slight sweetness, wheaty, bready - some spice and a hint of fruit - dry finish with some hops making an appearance - well-balanced and enjoyable.

Cloudy golden color, slightly hazy, fluffy white head. Herbal, floral, tart, citrusy, yeasty, horseblanket aroma. Sweet and sour flavor, some fruit, spice, and earthy flavors. Fairly light, dry finish. Complex and well-balanced. Very nice.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Cloudy golden color wiht a large fluffy white head,nice yeasty citrus and herbal aroma, flavor is initially tart, but then gives way to some fruity like sweetness and mild spice, light but not watery, a very easy drinking and refreshing beer

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Hazy gold with a big puffy head. Nice nose, tart, yeasty, flowery, lots of peaches and some tartness as well. Flavor starts nicely, big burst of fruity flavor, punchy and sweet, then fades rather quickly. Bit spicy, but would like a slightly longer finish. Nice palate, creamy, somewhat full, but ends crispy and dry.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Rich, pillow-like head. Cloudy straw color. Peach, subtle pepper and saffron aroma. Robust. earthy hop flavor adds a ton of depth and warmth to a lower ABV brew. Creamy yet dry and tangy finish. Wonderful!

Hazy golden color, with a nice fluffy white head. Fruity, flowery, yeast aroma. Light, but complex flavors. Dry, and yeast with a very slight sweet and spice taste.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 (Bottle) Another fine Brasserie Dupont brew. This is a well-balance and fairly complex beer. A bit light taste than the original Moinette. Pours a hazy golden color with a beautiful frothy head.
