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.

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.

Bottle. Pours cloudy light yellow. Aroma of belgian yeast, cloves, touch of banana and hay. Taste is spicy hops with some light sour and bitterness. It’s not a all time classic for nothing. Good stuff.

Chandos (3) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2016 does not count
The gold standard for the beer type as far as I’m concerned. Might be biased since it was also what introduced me to the Saison phenomenon but there’s not much out there that can really compete with this lovely dry beast of a beer. My default go-to summer beer for sunny days. Light enough to not knock you off your socks immediately (contrary to the more serious Avec le Bons Voeux counterpart). Yeasty, light citrus and herb tones, golden look.

33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a cloudy yellow with a three finger white head. Glass full of swimming yeast. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, caramel, freshly cut grass. Tastes of again citrus, grass, caramel, bready yeast, grapefruit, banana, pepper, apple. Complex beer. Medium body, creamy, hoppy, yeasty, very fruity. Nice dry bittersweet finish. This is a very good brew. Enjoyed this a lot and it’s a shame my glass is already empty...
