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".

33cl bottle at home from local supermarket. Nose is fruity with belgian yeast. Body is opalescent yellow, head is big, white, fizzy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, peach, malt, lanyard. Medium sweet, light bitter, light fruity sour, slightly salty. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bittersweet. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Interesting, not my style.

Fruitig en spicy. Mooie balans tussen Saison gist en bittere hoppen. Helder, goudkleurig met een blijvende schuimkraag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1175) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, Gus, and others. Aroma is funk, banana and clove, barnyard, decent. Appearance is golden, hazy, white head. Taste is tart, banana and clove, bitter, but I’m unhappy. Mouthfeel is medium body, crisp carbonation, too much banana in the aftertaste. Overall, this is incredibly disappointing. For the modern standard, this is not good.

Dark golden/light orange, slightly hazy, huge, quite dense and persistent white head, leaving nice lacing on the glass. Freshly bright aroma of lemon and orange pulp, vivid herbal freshness too. The slightest earthy feel. Taste opens with fruity sweetness (lemon, orange) among a crackery foundation. A mild spicy note. Finish is herbal/grassy, slightly on the bitter side, dry. Again, a slight hint of earthyness may be detected. Light to medium body, dense carbonation, very lively mouthfeel. Goes down so easy but never gets boring. Simple and great at the same time

Fantastic honey gold pour with a mushy white cap. I could pick up the aroma as soon as the cap popped off the top. Big bang of complex flavour: spices, pepper, berries, swirls of yeast. This is a great sipper of a saison & is one of the high water marks of the style for me. I want to sip it slowly in this sizzling Gulf of Mexico sun but its going down soooooo quick & the bottle is so small. Love it.

Bottle 33. Jaune à fines bulles et mousse blanche sympa. Après, cela se gâte ... Arômes : houblon, chou ... Bouche : épicée mais pas vraiment de mon goût (bue après une Westvleteren 12) ! ;-)

heman (530) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Barwa złota, piwo klarowne, piana bardzo intensywna, zdobiąca szkło. Aromat zdominowany pieprzowymi przyprawami. W smaku lekkie wytrawne, nieco owoców i dużo przypraw. Finisz lekko cierpki, z niską ziołową goryczką.

beer-yum (1241) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 9, 2016
Restrained grassy floral aroma in a hazy golden pour. Sublimely balanced spicy fruit flavor is way lighter than the strength would indicate. A deserved benchmark of the style.
