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.

Hamirubi (298) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2015
33cl bottle at home. The classic saison of Brasserie Dupont: Yellow to orange, pale looking ale with a thin white collar. Citrus zeste, herbal or floral aromas deliver a very rich, floral sensation. These features are rather sharp. The taste itself is as rich, with a vivid carbonation and clever sweet-bitter-malt balance. Spiced mouth, pomelo-pamplemousse and lager notes. The hoppy taste accentuate the overall palate. The finish is bittery dry and warming alike - lovely. A smooth drinker, maybe hinting a tat too much at pilsner beer.

Ysok02 (342) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2015
Une très belle saison à la robe blonde, très belle mousse. Nez tout en fraîcheur entre fruit, levure et houblon. Bouche tout aussi agréable, raffraîchissante, longue avec une superbe amertume en finale. La saison par excellence, idéale par cette température (32°C) et après une journée au potager....

zenkis (660) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUN 20, 2015
So huge was the expectations about this brew, classic and so... Well I was disappointed in such simplicity, even I knew that it is single malt. Pours dark yellow with thick, white top, good head retention and lasing. Aroma- light sweet malty plus only two yeast characters- spicy, peppery alike and mold, old leather like. To me this brew was not complex at all. Taste- sweet with light bitterness, maybe even less than light. Above average body, medium+ carbonation, light to medium dry finish.

Pours slightly hazy golden straw. Initial aroma is like sparkling white wine, immediately followed by ripe fruits and some funky sour tones. Flavour is quite clean, fruity esters followed by some spice, with high carbonation and little bitterness.
