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.

Saison dupont. Not the one pictured here but in a capped 33cl bottle from Belgian beer box. Pours hazy golden yellow with lasting head. Nice aroma. Refreshing taste. Nice bitter dry finish. A nice beer but not amazing in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jarastlad (6) - Arlon, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2014 does not count
Grosses bulles à faible tenue. Bullage très fin mais bien présent. Belle couleur or cuivrée, légèrement trouble. Au nez, c’est le houblon et une certaine fraîcheur citronnée qui domine. Très agréable. A la bouche, l’attaque est le houblon et l’amertume mais qui se complexifie sur du fruit et des notes herbacées. Longueur en bouche très importante avec un finish assez sec. Très bonne saison !

750 ml cork bottle with loud pop bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey yellow colour with lots of dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive two finger head and lasting crumpety white foam. Excellent sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with fresh grapefruit, pineapple, bubblegum, vanilla, honey, floral, strong Bel yeast, bread, nice herbs and light earth.

Taste: Mid-to-light, refreshing sweet taste of malt, with strong bubblegum, fruity esters, caramel, strong light phenolic, Bel yeast, earth, herbs, light spice, lime, light bitter hops and quite sharp grass.

Body: Medium. Very creamy and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Body with right-on thickness, not too rich or not to light. Very creamy. Taste also tend to be light. The fruit esters are not very distinctive but likely to be citrus and yellow fruits. Strong bubblegum but not sugary. Good touch of herbs, earth and light phenolic for a very relax and refreshing feel. THIS IS ART!

Hoppiness: Moderately herbal and earth nose. Same goes for taste plus good lime and sharp grass. Light but distinctive bitterness for a lasting bitter-light sweet finish. Beautiful!

After Taste: Slightly dry. Creamy, easy and herbal to mouth.

Comments: A style founder, a trend setter, or whatever you name it, this brew is the template of Saision - creamy, easy, light but tasty, and thirst-quenching. Simple and elegant, I just can’t get enough of this. Will stock for Summer!

PapaVillum (298) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 7, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 6,5 % ABV, gave fra Gert og Michele - tak! 7. april 2014. Lettere uklar ufiltreret korngul Saison med flot hvid tætskummet skumtop på ca. 2 cm tykkelse. Små spor af gærrester. Dufter af citrus bl.a. lime og krydderier. Smagen er fin, overvejende bitter. Frisk og i samspil med sødme, men humlebitterheden dominerer. Nok ikke så populært at påstå, men brygget minder i starten meget om en god bayersk pilsner. Senere, med lidt varmere temperatur, fremkommer flere smagsnuancer bl.a. via tilsatte krydderier såsom koriander. Kulsyreindholdet er omtrent på medium, men fint perlende, som giver en god blød mundfølelse. Man fornemmer en lidt eksklusiv øl.

lesifflebiere (1026) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
Belle bière trouble, de couleur paille avec une couche de mousse blanche en surface. Les arômes sont piquants, acidulés presque, avec du pamplemousse et du citron. En bouche, elle est sèche, fruitée, avec des ananas qui dominent en finale, le tout étant délicieusement complexe et dans une harmonie générale. Si l’on fait abstraction de son effervescence, un peu trop guillerette, on peut déclarer que cette Dupont représente la quintessence de la bière fermière wallonne, une référence mondiale du style et rien de moins. Rating #1000.
