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.

Not very familiar with this style. Somewhat fruity on the nose and into the mouth. Pretty good bite into the back of the mouth and on the swallow. Variety of flavors throughout. Will try this again come summer along with some other examples of this style. Pretty good overall.

ScipioA (291) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours a hazed gold with a slightly off-white head sustained by vigorous carbonation. Tons of sediment visible but I left most of that in the bottle. Lemon zest, belgian yeast esters (banana et al), slight alcohol and slight woodsy funk on the nose make for a classic saison aroma. Flavor is delicious and complex, the funk increases and the malt adds a bready base. Lemon and banana continue. Soft and grainy mouthfeel is pleasant and refreshing. Easily obtainable and world-class saison.

orangesol (748) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Served on-tap at Shady McGradyís into a snifter.

A - Pours cloudy straw yellow with a nice pillow of half finger tall head leaving little wisps of lacing down the glass.

S - I donít think the smokey bar helped this one much. I could barely make it out but I got some light Belgian yeast, ripe fruit, earthy funk and a solid herbal backbone.

T - Plenty of Belgian yeast and earthy funk mix well with some nice light fruitiness and a tiny bit of light malt. Not as spicy as I thought it would be but it is still in there. Finish has lots of lingering bready yeast. Still one of my all time favorite beers.

M - Medium-light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A pleasant mix of chewy and dry in the feel. Finish is very chewy with most of it lingering for some time after consumption.

D - Pretty high. One of the all time best, I could drink a few of these on a warm summer day no problem. It is light yet still complex and very tasty.

maltman53 (314) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours hazy gold w/ huge persistent white, foamy head. Lemons, bread, fruity esters on the nose. The palate is fruity w/ faint banana and clove. The finish is extremely dry and long. Overall, a very dry expression of the Saison style.

cladinshadows (44) - USA - AUG 28, 2014
Hazy and golden, nice head. Fruity, funky, bubble gum, spicy, and citrus aromas come out. A little light struck aroma too. Some lightly sweet bread. Flavor follows the aromas. Amazingly complex. High carbonation and very refreshing. Nice pilsner malt flavor balanced with spicy hops and lots of yeast character. Delicious.

wvhoran (209) - Tasmania, - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at the Bergweg. I have had this several times and enjoy it a lot. It is a golden yellow colour with a diminishing white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, possibly some citrus fruits that are unknown to man. The flavour is smooth, malty, citrusy again, and then a very distinct bitterness. Itís balanced, it has stood the test of time. Itís on the offense. Itís good.

Helsdon (150) - Toronto, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Pour a clear gold with a finger of white head. Nose of Belgian yeast and hay malts. Tastes of a little bitterness, hay malts. Whatís going on here? Is it just me or is this beer not as great as the rating? You Belgians, what the word on this beer in Belgium?
