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".

growler6 (157) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Fizzy and light mouthfeel with notes of pear, berries, coriander, and clove. Honey sweetness with a dry peppery finish. Complex and refreshing. Superb. Still my favorite Saison.

erikaraeb (52) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Tripel-style saison. Tastes of bread, yeast, and honey without being overly sweet. Mildly tart. Well-rounded but relatively simple. I find the non-exports taste better than the US exports.

Slightly hazy yellow gold color with huge white, compact-bubbled head. Smells of herbs, citrus, spice, hint of drying balsamic vinegar and flora background. Tastes is spice and earth up front with a quick burst of very mild bitterness that disappears. Following is a mildly creamy middle riding on hops and mild yeast and slight malt. Peppery spice character is apparent throughout and the finish is dry but not drying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blonde de fermentation haute et refermentée en bouteille, la Saison Dupont était brassée en hiver en 1844 dans une ferme brasserie. Suite à ça, elle était refermentée plusieurs mois en tonneaux de bois afin de désaltérer les ouvriers agricoles. Aujourd'hui, c'est une classique des "Saisons Belges" qui représente une grande partie des exportations de la Brasserie Dupont. Avec une robe cuivrée et une épaisse mousse blanche, elle dégage des arômes de houblons fins, de levure, d'agrumes et d'épices. En bouche, on y retrouve des saveurs de houblon, d'épices, de coriandre et d'agrumes. Son corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse et une carbonatation modérée pour un final houblonné. Elle est à déguster à 12° C en apéritif ou avec des moules, des asperges ou des grillades. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chromeotaphor (166) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
Fris grassig appel honing perzik aroma, erg aangenaam. Licht bewolkt goudkleurug biertje met een volle forse schuimkraag. Fris sprankelend in de mond met een droge bitter in de afdronk. Komt koel verfrissend binnen en heeft een bloemige frisse smaak. Prachtig palet, de saison! Een zoetje en een zuurtje met een overduidelijke lekkere bittere bite in de afdronk. De dorstlesser!

jasonbenali (195) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Pours a golden yellow with small clean white bubbles, lively carbonation and a thick lacing. Aroma is classic saison and a complex mix of cloves, banana, pineapple, coriander, herbs, straw and wheat malts. Taste is quite sweet with some bitterness in a tangy, fizzy and lovely long finish. The definitive saison? Certainly a favourite.
