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".

Haslinger (987) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2008
2007 Vintage.Pours a dark yellow, foamy head. Decent amount of fruit taste. Has a little spice but not too much. Wouldn’t buy again but would like to taste an older bottle that has aged more.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2008
(75cl, bbe 8/2010) Hazy and pale golden yellow with nice white head. Nose begins citric and acidic cidery, later some pineapple and yeasty wheat. Flavor herbal and peppery with fresh wheaty maltiness. Finishes long and dry. Raw’ish yeast gets perhaps a little too overpowering when pouring in the sediment, but still the flavor develops a more spritzy citric quality with some berry-like aromas. Mouthfeel almost full bodied and intensely carbonated, making this an extremely refreshing, but still interesting beer. Would love to sample a little further aged bottle.

750 ML Bottle. Very nice pour with a great white head! Slightly hazy golden hue, with a feint aroma of fruits, citrus and a note of sour mash. Nice dry finish. Beautiful brew!

A good beer, it pours very carbonated with a large white head. The aroma is grassy with some tart fruit notes. It is yeasty with wheat and citrus notes. Not bad, but I did not care for the finish.

mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2008
2007 bottle. murky gold color with a 2 finger white head. very sour, tart smell with some fruits as well. lemons and a little bit of spices yet very smooth on the palate. the carbonation isn’t too heavy and it has a good aftertaste.

agl108 (1307) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2008
On draft at Teresa’s Next Door. Poured deep gold with thin fizzy head. Very light citrus nose with lots of yeast and wood. Fresh, light lemony citrus flavor. Not nearly the spice character I was anticipating. Dry finish. Sessionable for a saison.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2008
375 ml caged, corked bottle: A sparkling yellow-orange pour with a large, rocky, white head that takes it’s time to settle down. There’s a lot of heavy lacing as well. Aroma has a nice yeasty funkiness with some residual sugars and a sweet flowery scent. Dry and lightly tart on the palate. There’s a lingering bitterness involved here. I did find the mouth feel to be thinner than anticipated. Soured fruits, citrus zest, and dry wheat are the prominent flavors. A sharp bitter hop presence counters the fruitiness. This is decent, but I don’t find this to be amazing by any means and the price doesn’t help either.

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Pours deep golden with a huge pillowy head. Visible sediment. Floral aroma of yeast and citrus, and clove. Med/high carbonation with light acidity. Goof mouthfeel. Excellent Farmhouse Ale.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 15, 2008
375ml bottle, cork dating 2006. Pours a pale amber gold soft, rocky, foamy clean white head, and a surprising amount of yeast (considering the beer is a bit older) sediment bobbing around under the high carbonation. Pleasantly skunky aroma hops are tempered with gently citric clove honey scent and some funky yeast character. Very effervescent on the palate yet still manages a smooth mouthfeel, while the palate is composed of cereal grain, light lemongrass, and a gentle herbal hop finish. Crisp and refreshing, a lovely saison.

Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2008
tap, cloudy golden color. Refreshing orange peel dryness with nice balance of tart and sweet fruit. Would be great on a warm summer day. Nice finish, great saison!
