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.

750 mL bottle. This was my first saison, on recommendation from SoLan @ Knightly. Wonderful pour, cloudy gold with a huge white head. Bright and fruity start, nice finish with hops. Not "sweet", just wonderful and refreshing.

Pours out a wonderful hazy golden color with a thick fluffy white head, were talking 3+ fingers thick here! Aroma is sweet hay mixed with a light tartness, yeast, and a slight musty funky smell. Once you take a sip your mouth is invaded by at first a sweetness of hay then followed by a tartness and a slight must that can only be attributed to saison. Dont let the must turn you away! This is a wonderfully crafted beer and one of the most refreshing beers Ive had in awhile. I have a whole 750ml bottle and Im not gonna share a drop, no sir. I love saison and this is a grea example of the style. I wish I had bought two of these.

Cork reads 2005. From notes on 12/25/2006. Pours a clouded gold with a bright white head. Nose is yeasty and sweet with a touch of old, aged must. Flavor is tart and crisp. Slight citric tones. Touch of sweetness. Bloody marvelous. Feel is extremely well balanced, though the carbonation seems a bit high. Its made me burp quite a bit. Drinkability is unsurpassed. I love saison, and I love this one. Beautiful.

375 ml corked bottle from Bevmo. Pours a rich unfiltered golden color with a huge white head that fades very slowly. Aroma is strong with notes of yeast, sour grapes, breads, and grass. Flavor is understated compared to the aroma. There is a complex mellowness to this concoction that is mostly sweet with notes of wheat, almonds, biscuit, and pears. Hops were well embedded and showed only toward the finish. Mouthfeel was very full, smooth, and silky. Finish was long, hoppy, dry and semi-sweet. Overall: this is a beer that I would drink at any occasion.

Hazy golden with beautiful, booming and persistent white head; nice lacing on the glass. Wheaty and yeasty scents hit the olfactory glands as well as citrus and green apples. The flavor is similar with a soury/crispy juicy citrus- fruit flavor, while surrounded by wheaty and yeasty backdrop. Very drinkable and refreshing for a hot day.

Rating 700. Bottle, from Fin. Beautiful honey gold pour, full of micro bubbles like champagne, gorgeous cap of fine buttercream bubbles, slowly settling in craters and leaving a picture-perfect ring of lace. A fresh, evocative aroma: makes me think of fishing for trout in the meadow streams of southeast Minnesota. Its all there: the bright clean grass smell, the rich fresh-tilled earth of the nearby fields, the peppery watercress growing in the streams, the wild weed and mint on the banks. Flavor is a deeply satisfying soft pastry malt character, sweet for a moment, and then a peppery, crisp finish. An elegant beer I would be very happy drinking just about any day, but worthy of a special occation too. What a fantastic beer--thanks Fin!

Bottled @ Delirium, Brussels. An amber beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is sweet, malty, dry and spicy. Hoppy and well balanced.

Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a good head that dissapates rather quickly. The aroma is refreshing, with strong citrus and banana notes. First sip is somewhat metallic and dry. It doesnt really distinguish itself... the finish doesnt really have much flavor, just a sensation, so Im not terribly impressed. A good, standard beer, but nothing to get too excited about.

Poured a glorious, cloudy orange color with this massive white head that just sets up camp and refuses to leave. Huge orange citrus aroma, with coriander, light cinnamon and other spices just permeating over the top of the glass. The flavor is much the same. Alot of huge spicy flavors. Cinnamon and orange just blend together to formulate the body of this brew. Nice little spicy finish, and left just the slightest sweetness in the aftertaste. Just well balanced and kick ass in every way. What a solid representation of this style.
