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.

pastymc (4) - Niscemi, ITALY - NOV 21, 2014 does not count
Bottiglia da 33 cl Bel biondo limpido, cappello di schiuma bianca, soffice, "pannosa". All’olfatto si percepisce immediatamente il malto, per poi passare a vari aromi floreali. Corpo medio e carbonazione vivace, i sapori di malto persistono anche al gusto, nell’immediato, accompagnati poi da sfumature citriche, speziate, per cedere infine alla leggera e piacevole luppolatura finale. Beverina e dissetante. Si sentono i campi belgi all’interno, retrogusto quasi di terra, di botti di legno. A mio avviso, la migliore Saison in circolazione.

HKdIPA (284) - HONG KONG - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle at The Globe. Hazy orange-amber pour. Big saison-y yeasty aroma with some citrus hops. Taste follows - yeast, saison, pepper, orange peel. Crisp bitter finish. Smooth bubbly palate. Really nice saison - not my favorite style but a great example.

Beardaxe (197) - - NOV 16, 2014
Pours straw colored with a massive head. Taste is classic saison with a moderate but not overdone brett presence. A bit spicy and a top bitter finish with some baking soda flavor I don't like. Strong carb that works well with the flavor. Light tasting for the ABV. Not my favorite style but this is well done.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a hazy straw with a unstoppable massive white head. Aroma is of basement, grapes, wheat, lemon, herbs, and maybe some vinegar. Tastes of light gum, lemon, wheat, herbs and is sweet. Medium body with tingly high carbonation and a dry feel yet refreshing. Hopefully my experience wasn’t altered by a green bottle.

venom666 (385) - Elche, SPAIN - NOV 8, 2014
Hazy orange color with a good white medium lasting head. Aroma is fruity, herbal and malty, with some banana hints and slightly hoppy. Taste is hoppy, floral and spicy, with cinnamon and clove. Earthy and slightly hoppy finish.

gregorymconway (127) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
750ml bottle from the LCBO. Hazy gold with a big foamy white head. Some bread and peach on the nose. Some spice and yeast character is present, subtle banana. Some basement aromas. Very dry and somewhat wine-like.

cmc619 (428) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Finally time to rate one of the classics. To me this has always been the gold standard of the saison style, with the quintessential malty funk and textbook dry palate. Hazy orange, substantial white head, just the right amount of bitterness. Had this a few times during LV summer and of course had tried it on BE trip 2010. Now able to get it here in BE and fantastic again. Funny to see it in 12 oz bottles as you can only find 750ml in the US. Yes, this is the saison dupont to.

OOKPIKABLE (104) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Purchased at the LCBO. Overflowed when I popped the cork. Skunky pilsner hops and a bit of vinegar in aroma. Taste of the same with a nice raisiny aftertaste. Nice.
