COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 The appearance alone is worth ten thousand words. The soft, wit-like yellow cream colored body, blends almost seamlessly with a large-bubbled white head which sits both deep in the glass and high on top sticking out. After a few minutes it has collapsed in on itself, leaving a thick and patchy coating of white sea foam clinging to the side of the glass. Watching this beer and its head settle, grow and die is like watching art being created. The pungent horseblanket, wheat, lemon grass and sweet buttery vinegar scents are immaculate. Close to the finest scent I’ve ever found in a beer. Whenever I drink saison, especially one with a nose like this, I’m always anticipating that punch of acidic, funky, concentrated heaven that you get from really good gueuze. It’s a rather weird situation when the palate is expecting gueuze but it gets... cream, flowers and yogurt? Not that I’m disappointed, but rather surprised, and it helps draw the drinker in, to convince you that you need to pay special attention to the nuances of this beer. It has the sourness of sour cream, meaning it’s really not sour in the true sense of the word, but rather it’s a mellow lactic acid creaminess, again like yogurt. one of the premier beers in the world.

Slightly hazy yellow orange pour with a medium sized head. Aroma of bread, dough, wheat, malt, yeast and slightly hoppy. Crisp and fresh taste, perfectly balanced moderately sweet, bitter and sour. Medium bodied with medium Co2. Beautiful!!!!!

Mishnok (416) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2017
Despite being unfiltered, this on poured a nice clear gold with a good head. Archetypal Belgian Saison with a yeasty, earthy taste. Tastes more alcoholic than it really is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une Saison dans le pur style avec des notes de céréales genre pain frais, des notes citronnées et herbacées avec un final épicé et sec.

Bottle from Beermerchants. Hazy gold with fluffy white head. Nose has mild caramel cola fondant softness. A dry spicy funk. Lovely sweet and warm. Spice flavours warm the chest. A soft banana fruitiness follows. A dry earthy grassiness finishes. This beer feels smooth medium bodied with a pin sharp moderate sparkle. Soft chewy fruitiness with a dry farmhouse balance. Although perhaps (disappointingly) a little bold to be sessionable it is definitely a firm leader of its style. Terrific.

panda_brewmaster (77) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 fresh aromas of yeast, hay, tangerine, sweet lemonade. refreshing and juicy mouthfeel. quite low carbonation for a saison beer. sweetness slightly dominating the bitter in the taste. very sessionable.
