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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

I recall the first time I had this beer. A hot day in July; my partner and I cracked it open and poured out two glasses. The head was dense and fluffy, the bead vigorous, the beer golden, slightly hazy, and inviting. Then the flavor--an explosion of pepper, citrus, sweet malt, floral hops (all right, that was in my nostrils), all wrapped up in a lip-smacking, crisp palate. It begs for an immediate follow-up swig. Careful, though--it packs a punch. I think the thing I like the best about it is the cellar-y qualities: a dingy label and slighly musty yeast aroma.

kaserov (104) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 21, 2016
Color oro claro con capa de espuma blanca de más de dos dedos de grosor, persistente. Poca carbotanación. Mucho (y digo mucho) resto de especias. Olor a levadura y como a champán, húmedo. En boca la carbonatación es más presente y hay mucha complejidad. Cuerpo mínimo pero de textura aceitosa; sabor fresco, a especias, ligeramente vinoso, con final seco. Muy interesante.

Didn’t quite get the high rating of 3.8. Would have rated it aroun 3.2. Now made a (com)promise to drink and rate again. Taste is light spicy but strong bitterness dominates. Mouthfeel is good and aftertaste is very good.

Aspecto: Se trata de una cerveza bastante opaca, y de tonalidad intensa, de color dorado oscuro, algo anaranjado y cobrizo. La corona de espuma resulta llamativamente muy abundante, de un blanco pulcro, especialmente densa y bastante duradera. Se aprecia claramente que es una cerveza altamente carbonatada. Aroma: Desprende un compendio de aromas que en conjunto ofrecen un buen contraste. En un comienzo aparece una base dulzona, afrutada (cítricos y manzanas verdes), sobre la que destaca de forma clara y notable el lúpulo y matices herbáceos. Sabor: Firme entrada en boca, donde la burbuja hace acto de presencia de forma cosquilleante, casi picante. Se trata de una cerveza de cuerpo medio y muy viva. Al comienzo se detecta el dulzor predominante de la malta, con matices afrutados (a cítricos como la naranja), y claramente especiados (como el coriandro). Del dulzor inicial de la malta que inunda la boca con celeridad se pasa al amargor explosivo del lúpulo (muy acentuado) para terminar con una notable acidez y un matiz metálico, resultando un tanto terrosa y herbácea. El alcohol no distorsiona en ningún momento el conjunto, y el regusto resulta especialmente seco y muy prolongado.

lownote (513) - Austin, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Aroma complex with pepper, coriander, wheat. Pours a tiny bit cloudy with a big white head that’s pretty intense. Straw body. Very dry. Slight chalk finish. Citrus comes through in taste. Very light body. Full complex flavor, lively, and refreshing.

GvanGool (39) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
Wow, too bad I had only one bottle to taste. Dark yellow with nice solid head. Its a nice bitter, no hidden sugars or remaining flavours. I like the used hops for the arima and spicy taste. Not a beer to drink quickly but definately one to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good lacing, large and lasting, white to off-white head with yellow orange color. Aroma of spices, yeast and citrus. medium-bodied, creamy beer with a little sour in the finish.

Es una Saison, y en general no son de mi gusto, pero esta cerveza sube un poco el nivel. Tiene toques a manzana, ligera, con gas.
