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.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 Green bottle, 2006 vintage sampled in the early morn of July 28, 2007. Big spicy, dry aroma; orange rind and nutmeg with coriander and some herbs, grass and wood and prominent notes of dust and cobwebs. Fills the room with its yeasty, floral bouquet. Faint honey and white pepper. Deep golden pour with a huge yeast-driven rocky white head, strong carbonation. Taste is dry, hugely yeasty, and mildly fruity. Apricot and faint berry bubblegum, floral and spicy and sweet. Lesser notes of tart and bitter. Crisp beginning, but overall feel is rather smooth with well-integrated alcohol but a twinge from the light acidity. Grassy and bready but both of those under the citrus. Rounded and complex, very dry. Really a ton going on here, but for all the individual notes, its a gentle blend with considerable subtlety. Quite refreshing. [2007.07.27: 4.1]

375mL this time, cork marked 2014. Dark golden, clear and fluffy white cumulus foam. Nobly hoppy, lemon, dust, hay; dry and lightly tart, clean and attenuated, very faint mineral and stone, crisp and bubbly-fresh, subtle green apple. Love the subtle differentiation in the lemon character here, some nice lemon-vanilla meringue blending. Distinctive and just lovely as always. [2015.06.09: 4.4]

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Mild yeasty aroma mixed in with nice citrus notes. Light yellow/golden color, reminiscent of fine champagne. Very foamy white head. High carbonation. It is very crisp and dry - well balanced with the fruity flavors. A solid beer for a very unique style.

poured into tall tulip. pours a clear golden amber with frothy head.. yeastie clean aroma, notice spiciness from yeast, no carbonation on the palate, like you would think because the glass is full of bubbles. aroma and taste are very parallel.. very "snappy" in the yeast quality(Julie) good, good, saison , best saison, "undisputed classic of the style"(Julie)

This Farhmhouse ale was on tap at the Oasis. Pleasant sour citrus flavor with graininess and a very healthy head.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2007
750ml. this ale pours an orangey golden hue with a dense cloudiness. a tall fluffy sort of cool-whip like head lasts and lasts. aroma is quite complex it ranges from lightly grainy to spicy, and seems to have a spiced citric quality as well. yeasty citric flavor with some spicy hops comprising the finish. the palate is smooth and full. over all this is quite well rounded.
