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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Bottle (300ml). Extremely lively, big head, white, rocky. Lots of post-pour bubbles, like champagne. Wan, cloudy lemon colour. Odour very like Unibroue Blanche de Chambly - mild yeasty wheat beer nose with lemon oil, camphor, ash. Flavour? bitter, bitter - pine or spruce tang, some ash, lemon oil - very aggressive bitter finish. Good patio beer for hop-heads - not really my thing. Update July27/07 - what WAS I thinking?! Simply amazing yeast, light sourness and funk, backbone of caramel malt and light fresh sweet spice, cloudy, floaties, complex yet easy to quaff -great beer.

The Dupont brewery is one of the nicer microbreweries in Belgium, situated in a village with 5 streets and a pub. The Saison Dupont is a typical "saison" beer and one of the best of this special kind of beer. The bitter taste is very balanced and reminds of warm summer evenings in the countryside. This beer goes down very well on a hot day.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2005
330ml bottle from Bitter Virtue. Voluminous head rapidly diminshing, golden colour. Spicy yeast aromas, vanilla, fruity citrus and grassy hops. Initially I wasnt too keen on the taste - a clash between the bitter and fruity aspects. By the time I realised I quite liked it, it was almost gone! Slight chalkiness in the finish.

Not as complex or unusual as I had imagined. In fact, it seems like a more bitter Aventinus with less espers and spice. Still, a well-crafted beer with body and flavour to spare. Initial fruitiness is tempered by its herbal finish. The carbonation is soft and it’s slightly oily.

Ughsmash (7506) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Nice cloudy yellow pour with a big rocky off-white head. Wonderfully complex aroma with apples, Belgian yeast, grass, citrus, and banana noted. Flavor was dry and spicy with citrus, wheat, and a little bread. Tasted like a hefe that was kicked up a notch. Long citrus & wheat finish. Very refreshing!

ptsotd (14) - Juliette, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Thick yellow haze with whipped cream head. Highly carbonated, bubbly. Grassy aroma; hay; also orange peel, yeast, slight notes of gouda??? Hmm. Bright flavor notes with pleasant bitter, herby finish. Very drinkable for its alcohol content. Quaffable even. Head lasts half a day. Cobwebs of lacing cling to the tulip. Summer in a bottle? Makes me want to work the fields so I can come home thirsty. Men’s Journal recently called this the best beer in the world. It is better than the Fantome Saison, no question. Very nice.

Pale clouded orange appearance, fluffy white head. Hoppy peppery aroma, yeasty, clove spice, mild cheesiness. Sweet, soft palalte, fairly spicy, peppery, fair bitterness in the finish.

kxkeller (32) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
Light, hazy with a tall, white head. Strong nose of coriander and orange peels, like a fresh wit bier. A fresh taste with coriander, oaky and soapy notes. Dry, oaky aftertaste.
