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.

Aroma seemed kinda like a triple with plenty of yeast and spice to entice. Pale gold with a big head. Light mustiness and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Earthy, or maybe grassy, slight alcohol finish to this very smooth offering.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is sweet light spicy with a balanced fruity pattern. Has some light citrus flavours on the palate.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. hazy golden colour with a white long lasting head. Aroma is spices, citrus fruits and some yeast. Spritzy is a word I see used in other reviews and it fits; pepper, lemon and coriander. Crisp and dry with an underlying sweetness. Interesting.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Golden. Nose of spices, banana peel, tangerine, orange, spices, bready malt and herbs. Pleasant, great for the style flavor profile, with notes of banana bread, bready malts, light fruits (green apples), a bit of tartness and perhaps some spicing, coriander if I am not mistaken.

On tap at o’briens- Pours a cloudy/hazy yellow-gloden hue with a light white head. Aromas of yeastiness, and a little spice. Flavors of a spritzy hefeweisse which may be it’s down fall. Not the greatest example of a style that still seems so broad.

I’m really not sure which one I had. I had it on draft at Obrien’s. Tastes like a wit with more guts. Spicy, with lemon, corriander, bla bla bla. What I would recommend to a girl looking for something not too strong.

Pours a hazy amber colour. Head erupted like Vesuvius and required some time to settle before I could pour the whole thing into a glass. Some yeast bits floating around. Beautiful aromas of spices, pepper with some alcohol apparent. taste of spices and citrus with a bit of an apple taste at the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Bottled. A hazy orange coloured beer with a very big white head and bubbles by the million. Extremely complex but very tasty with hints of coriander amongst many other spices; lemon and black pepper. The nose in particular has lots of pepper. A truly delicious beer. Score 4.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.4. Average becomes 3.8

Glowing apricot color with a large frothy white head. Pepper, strawberry, dust and bread aroma. Very pepperey, dusty apricot flavor. Extremely dry finish. Very interesting.

Glowing orange color with a massive white head. The aroma was very peppery, with some nice dusty, earthy, sugary tones. The flavor was also very peppery, with a very dusty/musty character, other spices, old lady’s perfume, and some slightly funky leathery tones. The feel was very crisp with a bone-dry finish...my tongue was begging for some water! Nice.
