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.

Dacrza (583) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 25, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: drafting while draughting--a perfect beer for a fantasy football draft!... APPEARANCE: pale, cloudy yellow heather body with a half-glass mushroom cloud of soft white head--as attractive as C.J. Spiller, my first rounder... AROMA: clean, grassy, lemony roundness with enough vanilla and citrus medley to complicate the nostrils ...PALATE: goodness, this is easy-drinking; a slightly warming finish does little to detract from the beer’s pleasant front-end presence and sipability...TASTE: a touch of sourness denotes the citrus presence, while the overall flavor is soft hoppy goodness, like a freshly mown lawn wafting... OVERALL: after the Dogfish Head 60 yesterday and this today, I probably could retire from summer beer drinking; as I remembered it, a refreshing, almost euphoric bottle that makes one question the need for another night’s drink; enough alcohol to be significant, weak enough to be enjoyed more than once...

Flanfl (158) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - APR 25, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden colour. Medium white head. Aroma of citrus, funk, spices, and yeast. Flavour of spices, yeast, some citrus toward the end. Long dry finish. Some lasting astringency. Medium body and medium-high carbo. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tricksta_p (1683) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Aroma of fruits, citrus, malty notes, funky yeast, spicy notes, hint of hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Maybe not the absolute best, but a classic Saison.

mt_hall (147) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottled. Bright and almost completely clear as I avoided pouring the yeast. A golden colour with noticeable carbonation but a minimal off-white head. The yeast is very evident, with a slight spicyness (cloves), bubblegum, and some fruit on the nose - all of it very well balanced, nothing overpowering. Sweet, refreshing, citrus flavours, with the bitterness and hint of spice coming afterwards. Exceptionally clean, refreshing and well balanced. Very good.

Supertrev (79) - CHINA - APR 11, 2015
A classic. Golden, well carbonated. White consistent head which clings to the glass. Fresh Belgium aroma. Dry but leaves your mouth not feeling dry afterwards. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (828) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 9, 2015
Golden lightly hazy coloured beer with a pillowy large slowly fading head and good lacings. Aromas of barnyard, fresh straw, hay and farmhouse aromas as well as funk aromas and earthy notes develop. Fine smoothly carbonated with a medium body. Complex tastes of a mix of sweetness, light tart bitterness and a hint of astringency develops. Medium lasting balanced finish.

craftbeersweden (276) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Best before nov - 2017. Pours clear, golden with a three finger high, fluffy white head that sinks down to a thin layer pretty fast. Nose: Belgian yeast, grass, hay, citrus, sweet malt and spices. Taste: Citrus, grass, spices, herbs, peach, orange and green apples. Body: Medium body with crisp carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Very balanced. I can understand why this Saison has set the "standard" for all others!

Jannick13 (135) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours slighlty hazy golden with small colapsing head. Aroma of cittrus, spices. Taste is similar as well as crisp, refreshing, a bit pepery and a nice dry finish.

Wanne (32) - - APR 5, 2015
Color is golden and clear, huge head that quickly vanishes. Aroma of malt, citrus and even a little frankincense. There’s a nice and subtile bitterness in the taste, which makes it an enjoyable, thirst-quenching beer.

Grumlig/dimmig, gul och vitt skum. Doft: Saison, malt, söt jäst. Smak: Saison, lite funk, malt, "gammal" humle, frukt skals beska, vindruvs kärnor.

beeebon (250) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a hazy blonde colour with a fizzyhead which doesn’t last. Aroma is spice, hay, apples, yeast and sweet malt. Taste is quite complex, medium sweet and quite dry, long and lingering. Pretty nice beer
