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.

First saison. I had no idea what to expect at all. Would this be like a lambic or a pilsner (Iíve heard both comparisons)? To me it was like a Belgian dubbel with some of the "barnyard" character Iíve heard about, along with herbs/spices. It makes me desperately want to try more crazy Belgians.

This beer had a bitter fruit taste which I kind of dug. A citrus quality. The pour is light and kind of looks like gratefruit juice. It goes down very easily. This is the only beer I have had of this style so far. Not bad at all. Didnít knock my socks off.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Pours a hazy yellow color with a thick, frothy, white head. Amazing aroma of hops, spices, hay, flowers, barnyardt with fruity esters. The flavor is the same with an amazing blend of hops, barnyard, flowers, hay citrus and spices with a bitter finish. The body is full with a very smooth, pillowy, creamy texture and moderate to lively carbonation. Every Saison lover has to try this classic, simply amazing.

seemed like belgianís version of a rolling rock. almost a natural skunk aroma, with tiny citrus flavors and light beer written all over it. not bad by any means, but mostly reminded me of a rolling rock mixed with a westy. was my 1st saison, and definitly not my last, as i would like to see where this style goes in terms of taste. very strange overall, but not bad.

Hazy golden with a great thick head. I really enjoyed this beer. Crisp and spicey. Donít think I have ever had a saison, but if this seems like it is a great example.

In the 0.375L bottle. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a monster head that jumps out of the glass and attacks you. First aroma was of ye olde skunk, but this olí boy just doesnít give into the photo-destructive power of the sun that easily. A yeasty pilsner aroma that reminds me of a fresh german beer on the platz. But wait! Thereís more. So much more. Thereís a musty wildflowers caught in the path of the scythe aroma as well. Citrus flavor, banana flavor, coriander? I swear there might be butterscotch in there somewhere! Sweet middle big body mouthfeel. Finish is a pretty strong bitter. A much more beery Belgian than you usually encounter.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours gold with a good amount of cloudy haze. Lots of sediment. Lacey white head. Deep musty yeast, honey, sweet grassy aroma. Herbal hop florals with a trace of alcohol. Some lime bitter. Malts are thick with honey sweetness. Some dough flavours and bread crust. Somewhat like a tripel. Nice.

IslandHaole (1159) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Honey colored with a foamy but quickly disapating head. Complex tart, musky scents. A delicious sweet & sour flavor, fruit and candi sugar up front with a tart bite in the middle. Lip smackingly wonderful. This is my first Saison, you can bet I will be looking for more!
