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.

Just started to get into Saisons and have found them to be extremely refreshing. This is one of the best. A nice cloudy golden pour with a huge white head. Nice lacing on my glass. Great aroma of bread, honey, citrus, and black pepper. A wonderful refreshing brew with spices and tartness. Perfect combination.

Bière belge blonde refermentée en bouteille. Légèreté en bouche avec une délicate amertume. Bière agréable et rafraîchissante sans dévoiler d’arômes pouvant réellement la distinguer dans sa catégorie.

Hazy blonde with a nice spicy aroma, sour apples are noted. Nice bready tatse with spices, citrus or sour apples, slightly tart, ok mouthfeel.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden beer on top, opaque yellow at the bottom with thin bubbles. Huge creamy white head with brown sediment on top : gorgeous like the cream of a cappuccino with chocolate ! Fruity aroma (citrus, lemon), spices, herbs, bread in the end. Medium herbal bitter and sugary medium sweet (maybe too much). Medium body, silky texture, high carbonation, bitter refreshing finish with a sweet note. Overall, the look of this beer is stunning, nice herbal/fruity/"spicy" aroma. This would be awesome if sweetness was less significant.

Hazy yellow. White persistent head. Fantastic aroma of continental hops, spices, weissbier, coriander and a hint of lime. Similarly good taste with superb drinkability. Hops and bitterness in aftertaste.

Keg. Cloudy gold with white fuzz. Nose is lemon, chives and marzipan. Taste is full of marzipan, light summer fruits, floral notes, and marshmallows. Deliciously moreish.

Served on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed yellow amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a nice level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a nice mix of sweet, grain, and sour funk. There are nice sweeter Belgian aromas of a banana and light citrus smell with lots of Belgian pale malt aromas. A yeasty smell is there as well as well as a good showing of funk, taking on a mix of green apple and hay. With these aromas, there is also a light smell of spice and a bit of sour lemon. Overall very inviting. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet fruity flavor with lots of orange and a bit of peach, pear and apricot as well. Along with these sweeter fruits are some flavors of candied sugar and a sweet-and sour green apple taste. Right upfront there is also a light bready flavor which fades slightly as the flavor advances. While the bready fades, other flavors take its place with some yeasty and banana flavors joining the profile. Some spice flavors and a bit of lemon later come to the tongue and more toward the end a decent haylike and grassy flavor join the taste profile as well, creating a nice mix of sweet and sour-funk flavors to linger on the tongue at the end of the taste. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thin with a carbonation level that is slightly higher. The thinner body and higher carbonation are fantastic for the sweet and funked flavor of the brew, giving an overall very crisp and drinkable feel. Overall – This is a quite nice saison with a great drinkability and a fantastic fruity sweet-yet nicely soured and funked flavor. Rather refreshing, crisp, and delicious.

Une mousse blanche épaisse prend ses aises sur un liquide blond et doré pas autant trouble que je le pensais. La levure dégage des phénols de fruits jaunes. Des céréales mielleuses, autant au nez qu’en bouche, sont également perceptibles. Ces mêmes fruits jaunes sont présents et s’agencent à un petit sucre bien agréable. La finale est longue et sèche. Un grand classique désaltérant, une des meilleures au monde dans le genre.
