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.

malrubius (2790) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2007
375ml bottle in Gulden Draak Tulip. Pours hazy pale orange with big lasting white head and lasting lace. Aroma of citrusy fresh hops with a hint of vanilla. Flavors of vanilla tobacco with very hoppy spicy dry finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation make for a great mouthfeel and extreme refreshment. It just doesnt get any better than this.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a nice white head that bubbles and fissled out pretty quickly. The aroma of yeast, grains, citrus fruit and barnyard smells. The aroma had a striking resemblence to Heineken for some odd reason. The taste follwed much the same with some bitterness and spices in there as well. It was light bodied and finished dry. Was good in the typical saison fashion.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2007
Poured slightly cloudy pale orange with a fluffy head that lasted well with only minimal bubbles evident to support. A little sherbet in the aroma, along with some sweet sugar (candi sugar?) and some soft floral notes. There is also some lemony citrus and a bit of bubblegum. Reasonably bitter, although not overy overt, just lingering, almost loitering. Light bodied but has a good depth to it. As the beer warmed and more is consumed the bitterness fades a little and it becomes a rather easy drinking summer quaffer. Although it is winter, at least it isnt too cold!!

jlf278 (288) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Tons of white foamy, sumptuous head. Thins out but sticks around. Goldenish yellow, light color, very hazy and captivating. The aroma is a delightful mix of hops, pine, coriander, apples and banana. Lots of carbonation, spicy around the mouth, very peppery on the back of throat. Tastes of alcohol, strongly for abv, grass, dirt and banana. Reminds me of some hefeweizens. Tons of black pepper too. Overall went well with spciy food, but wouldnt want to drink it by itself. Wasnt happy with the sour and bitter flavors. The bitterness wasnt one I coudl savor, rather it made me cringe! Mixed feelings about this one.

This beer pours exceptionally bubbly. I got ahead of myself and had to wait about 10 minutes for some of the head to subside to fill the glass properly. Very yellow in color with some cloudy yeasts evident. Very light, herbal and citrus nose. The flavors mimic the nose. I heard one reviewer describe this as his "Desert Island Beer", but it is a little too hoppy for that in my opinion. However, it is undeniably a great summer beer: light, lemony and fresh.

On tap, have a bottle but have not tried so will update, yellow gold hue, dry to creamy texture, decently floral in taste and smell, hint of honey and spice, bitter lasting aftertaste. Really enjoyable, cant wait to have again.
