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".

I_LUV_BEER (140) - - JUL 22, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours hazy golden colour with a big white head, leaving lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is orange peel, grass, yeast and grain. Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, slight yeast and malts, finishing off with a pleasant lingering soft bitterness. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. A bit strong to be consumed as a session but very nice and tasty.

polo_marco (297) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Some sour malt smell with lemon and lime at the end. Great hazy golden color with short white head, a bit of lacing. Nice sweet malt taste with refreshing citrus notes settle on the tougue at the end for a while. Light body with wicked crisp carbonation. Great refreshing brew on a hot day nice work.

Ámbar, turbia y espuma jabonosa de buena retención. Aroma floral, algo de cítricos, ésteres característicos de levadura belga. En boca muy buena carbonatación, punto equilibrado entre acidez y amargor. Bien atenuada. Seca. Refrescante.

ninecats (466) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow, big massive white head, dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacings. Stellar looks. Aroma is citrus, hay, bread, cereal and floral notes. Taste is surprisingly full, bready citrus notes, rustic and crisp note, slight yeast, malty sweetness in the back balanced out perfectly to a flowery, slight perfumal, even creamy and dry finish. Medium body, low to medium carbo. So great.

33cl bottle poured into a tulip glass. Aroma: Apple, touch of citrus (I’m reminded of an Affligem for some reason, but it’s less floral). Appearance: Pours a golden body with a nice, thick head. Good retention and lacing. Taste: Follows aroma, with some sweet maltiness. Somewhat bitter, earthy. Palate: Light carbonation, light bodied. Discreet aftertaste, not unpleasant but a bit mild for my tastes. Overall: I’m surprised at the high ratings -- this is my first Saison and I’m a bit disappointed as I can’t really tell a difference from a regular Belgian Pale Ale. I may try it again once I’m more knowledgeable about the style.

Palme (3935) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
On tap @ Henrik. Yup, no doubt that this is a saison. It’s smells arch-typical saison yeasty and really fruity. Lots of apples and banana (?) here. Some wheat sweetness, but still kinda dry. Slight hint of pineapple. Yeah, this is nice stuff. Tastes lovely also. It’s really smooth and almost a look the velvety in the mouth while the soft prickling carbonation makes this really smooth in the mouth. Fruity and again, arch typical saison-ish. It’s really elegant and balanced this. Soft candy, some red apple skin with traces of pepper and bitter clementine zest in the back. Yeah, not much more to say. A lovely saison. 22.08.2014

Flaska rose red cafe. Grumlig gulorange kulör. Fluffigt vitt skum. Frisk, halmig doft med jästig touch. Färsk och fuktig smak. Färsk hö, gräs, örter och belgojäst.

Bue 2 ans avant DLC. Bière dorée à très forte carbonation, épais col de mousse à grosses bulles qui tient. Pas mal de levure en fond de bouteille. Nez sur le malt, l’alcool et un petit peu florale. Final acide et douce. Amertume moyenne mais avec bonne tenue. Un petit peu trop acide à mon goût. Je la trouve surcotée sur le site. Une bière plus belle que bonne je trouve.
