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.

Reid (1938) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2013
375ml corked bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem. $4.99 Cloudy golden ale, with a large creamy,smooth white head. Caramel,earthy,leafyleather, and barnyard style aromas.. interesting this also smells a little "skunky"! Complex flavours in which the yeast esters are to the front, followed by black pepper and clove. Nice. Good palate, well carbonated but feels natural. Nice beer, but not as exceptional as i thought it was going to be

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with big, pillowy head that reduces steadily but lasts and lasts. The aroma is yeast and lemon, with an underlying funk. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one here who initially thought this must be skunked in its green bottle. The first taste is barnyard and basement, with lingering bitter decay. Best to plan a long, lingering lunch and keep this close by, perhaps lightly chilled. The funk subsides with aeration, and over an hour or two this hits about every taste note there is: bread and lemon, wheat and pepper, nuts and leaves, banana and clove, bitter, sweet and everything in-between. If you’re really in a hurry, wait 10 minutes and quaff a cold, lemony and piney mouthful. Otherwise, your experience of this beer varies wildly by time, temperature and accompaniment. It rewards patience with variety.

Gelb-orange im Glas. Angenehm komplex in der Nase, Gewürze, Säure, Banane, Trauben. Am Gaumen ebenso. Schöne Kohlensäure, gut.

TheCaptMatey (89) - Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Poured a straw yellow colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is rich with yeast and floral and fruity citrus from the hops. Taste is quite fruity with yeast spice. This light bodied brew has good carbonation with a crisp bitter dry finish. Easy drinking when paired with starches and farm poultry.

Very dry and incredibly tasty. Sweet on the front and dry on the back. Great with holiday dinners.

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 (288) - 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.

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.

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.
