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.

Pours a cloudy golden orange colour with a white fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, hay, yeast and earthy herbs. Smooth mouth feel with refreshingly tight carbonation. Tastes of lemon, spices, farmy. Really tasty saison. Love it!

L: pours a cloudy gold with a gorgeous white pillowy head that leaves lacing. It eases back slightly, but sticks around the whole time. S: there’s an acidic funk that is nicely sitting amongst the yeast and some citrus, very pleasant. Hints of grass or hay. T: like the smell, superb balance with the wild strain quite subdued yet giving it a tangy liveliness, somewhat grainy and lemony. A little peppery. F: so nice and creamy, those bubbles just glide over the mouth, it’s very light and quaffable. O: the key is balance, and this is a fantastically restrained and harmonic brew. Doesn’t give excitement just superb craft.

This used to be a staple when it was cheap. Pale gold pour, almost straw. Big white head. Tons of lacing. Nice aroma of malt, hops, citrus, straw, grass. Taste is similar. Nice crisp finish.

lello4ever (269) - ITALY - AUG 20, 2015
Colore dorato torbido. Schiuma sottile e frizzante. Bel aroma fresco e floreale. Molto facile da bere, con note acidule molto piacevoli. Leggera, beverina, frizzantina. Una grande saison dalla super dupont.

Pointclick (3) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2015 does not count
From the glass, big foam head lingers for a decent time, refreshing carbonation. big notes of apple for me with some spice. slightly bitter, overall a good drop. not the best saison around

londonfields (21) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Nice light golden colour with lasting white head. Great aroma of green apples, banana and spicy, grassy hops. Pretty dry but enough power in the palate to make it much more pleasant than the countless insipid imitations. Lovely.

ChtiBreizh (219) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2015
Cloudy blond with a big frothy to creamy head, long lasting although getting thin, and leaving lacings. Aroma is apple, malty, straw, barnyard, yeasty, spices, light cask. Moderate sweet with a bitter hoppy astringent finish. Medium carbonation, medium body, filling creamy palate. Very good and fresh. Could drink this anytime.

alteregoo (355) - POLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się drobno i średnio oczkowa, kremowa piana, dość trwała i tworząca nieśmiały lajsing. Barwa jasciemno złota, mętna - wewnątrz pływają drobinki chmielowo-drożdżowe. Aromat przyjemny, kwiatowo-owocowy, są cytrusy, owoce tropikalne, brzoskwinie, agrest, dojrzałe jabłko papierówka. W smaku półsłodkie, wszystko to co w aromacie jest tu bardziej wyczuwalne, dodatkowo dochodzi delikatny anyż, jasne winogrona i chyba troszkę żelaza (na szczęście ledwo wyczuwalny w teście skórnym)... Goryczka niska, ziołowa, nagazowanie średnie, drobne, alkohol perfekcyjnie ukryty, lekka pestkowa cierpkość na języku. Piwo bardzo pijalne i odświeżające.

Tap@Black Swan, Copenhagen - gold yellow coloured pour with a white head. Aroma and taste is fruity and floral grassy hoppy, some barnyard yeast, zesty citrus lemon notes, some more grassy and floral nuances, light palate, dry finish. Lovely.
