UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Spicy perfume aroma. Big white head that lasted. Golden and cloudy. Distinct Saison flavor. Fruity and spicy, some graininess. Slightly bitter finish. Bubbly and smooth in my mouth. I finally found a little shop in this town that has some halfway decent beer selection so I picked this up. Very glad I did. I think Saison is one of my new favorite styles. Don’t let its light girly appearance and aroma fool you, this stuff kicked my ass. Alcohol well hidden.

Poured a beautiful orange color with a fluffy white head. Nose of oranges and spice. Flavor is exceptional with the alcohol expertly hidden. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Had this a couple of years ago; liked it enough to give a few bottles as Xmas gifts. Don't recall much besides that. ;) MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2015 SuperSaison …Intensity in the doughy yeast rusticity and spicy hops…Immensity for the cushiony cereals (barley and wheat?) and grassy bitterness…Boozed up Vieille Provision Saison Dupont, yet wise and reverend...An irresistible Dulcinea under 10 degrees Celsius...

Sampled bottle was from 1998. Golden cloudy beer with stony aroma and lot of minerals and cellar tones. Spicy, sourish flavor. I don´t think I get this beertype I must admit. omhper (26061) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 Sampling of the 1998 version in 2002: Pale golden, very rich head, very lively. Blue cheese and citrus in the nose. Lively, light mouthfeel. Dry, funky and fruity. Dangerously drinkable with nice late bitterness. joet (2680) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Some variability, with tartness and hay and musk independently this way or that. A spectacular presentation with an even silky foam and lace over a bright golden color. Uncorking brought out a wicked genie hydra part cow patty, part hay bale, part skunk. The aroma subsides to yield some fruit vinegar, curacao and more hay and acetic acid. The bitter is solid yet yielding to the alcohol spice. This is a challenging and delightful ass kicker at 9.5%! 40oz and I split a 750 -- we should have split ravidesai's magnum.
