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".

Dacrza (863) - 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...

tapefuzz (153) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2016
750mL bottle. Pours orangey gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma is yeast, clove, coriander, grain, apple, malt, and earthy, floral hops. Taste is tangy citrus, lightly sweet malt, honey, spice, grassy hops, and yeast. Some banana and pepper. Lightly bitter. Long, dry finish. Medium body. Crisp carbonation. Crisp, clean mouthfeel.

ALIBALI (789) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
Wow, what a smell?? Hart kräuterig, chinafoodlastig. Koriander und Zitronengrasaromen drängen vor und geben der wundervollen, tief geheften Optik einen Extrakick. Die Vorfreude ist geweckt. Ab da an wird es zwar "nur" klassisch belgisch, trotzdem ist der Genosse sehr extravagant, da fett bitter und stark citrusweinig. Ein bißchen störend ist höchstens das etwas arg getreidige Mundgefühl. Ich hör auf... Hammerbier!!!! Und dazu noch spottbillig. 0,33 Flasche aus einem Supermarkt (jawoll Ratty 😉) in Groningen. 1-2€??

rikstar (2308) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2016
0,33l fles gedeeld bij Ralf. Goudgeel met een witte kraag. Citrus met die typische landelijke geur van de gist. Tuffeltje muf met een zuurtje. Best een redelijk Saison bier

Toomio (516) - Joensuu, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Tässä se oli jännä savunmaku. Ei ollenkaan sellaista, mitä luulisi pullon perusteella. Oikein maukas. Tuulensuussa Jaakon ja Samin kanssa.

lotsalaughs (170) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
Darker gold with slight white foam. Aromas of over ripe fruit and definite earthy funk. Light bitterness and a bit sour. Medium high carbonation, with a light mouthfeel. Finish is a bit astringent, and a funky dry aftertaste remains.

matzou (16) - SPAIN - OCT 3, 2016
Second saison after the disappointing "avec Les bons voeux" from the same brewery. This one is way more balanced and delight to drink. Pour a beautiful yellow body clouded by the yeast, the head is perfectly white of 3 cm. Smell is yeastery and slightly alcoholic. Dry and sharp body with a spicy after taste and a slight honeyish/caramel finishing taste Very good beer overall

01.10.2016 - 0,75l bottle from Bierhandlung. Yeasty fruity nose with nice white head. Smooth mouthfeel. Well drinkable and dry grassy taste. I also like it’s relatives Biologique and Cuvée Dry Hopping 2015 with Minstrel hops.

I’m in love with this beer. Just a beautifully balanced, refreshing ale that can be session’d or savoured. Absolutely superb.
