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.

Hansen (6643) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2003
Yellow-golden, unclear, with fine big head. Typical spicy, coriander, aroma. Flavor starts with the spicyness, but finish a bit more dry than normal.

jgb9348 (4740) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Somewhat pale hazy golden colour, with a definate foamy white head. The aroma was almost that of an american macrobrew, but somewhat like straw. The taste was somewhat complex, with drying characteristics. The beer was pretty thin-bodied, but it was definately full of carbonation. Larger bubbles coated the side of the glass at all times. Not a bad beer, but not the greatest...but pretty good for the style.

Dusty aroma. Big white head, large bubbles. Spicy flavor, finish is somewhat weak. Not so impressed with this. Mouthfeel is kind of thin and very bubbly.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2003
My first of this style, the beer poured cloudy, nice white head, and a golden color. The taste was complex with a lingering crispness. The hop characteristics were very herbal. Delicious!

Kinz (3293) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Had a bottle at the local Vietnamese restaurant with the ridiculously good selection of Belgian beers. Poured a dark golden color with a magnificent head. Smells of yeasty bread, something undefineably citrus, and musty hay. Tastes like it smells, becoming more complex as it warms up. Initially poured clear, and became increasingly cloudy after repeated glasses got to the bottom of the bottle. Yeast flavor really jumping at the end. A fantastic beer.

This is one quality saison, in my opinion it is the best saison available. Hints of citrus while maintaining character with hops. Crisp & refreshing.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Dark golden colour, firm white head, constantly bubbling. Spicy aroma with hop notes and slightly caramelly malt. Very dry with lots of hops. Very refreshing and drinkable.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Very attractive beer. Bright golden streams tiny bubbles champagne-like. Large-bubbled head is pure white and robust. Elegant and best suited for an elegant glass. Bright flavor is citrusy, mildly estery and I occasionly picked up cheesey notes. The light body is prickly with carbonation, but not unpleasantly so.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2003
This saison pours an orange tinted golden color with a big, lasting, rocky white head. The aroma is hoppy with some spicy fruitiness lurking underneath. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation, the flavor is quite hoppy, spicy, and peppery with a touch of malts. The finish is wonderfully hoppy and dry, with just a little bitterness. A marvelous and very drinkable saison.

My first saison, so take this rating for what it's worth. Absolutely huge white, foamy, ultra-thick head. Color is pale yellow and clear, with some small condensed bits of sediment. Aroma is barely present, maybe slightly floral. Flavor is sweet early on, with grapefruit and honey notes, creamy, with a bit of sourness as it rolls off the back of the tounge. Pretty crisp. Overall good, but seemed like it might be slightly passed its prime.
