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.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Small bottle. Pours hazy orange, with a thin tan head. Aroma is all earth; hops, yeast, and spices. Flavor follows suit with pepper, yeast, hops, citrus and earth. Fairly strong carbonation. A benchmark for the style.

(Bottle) Pours golden with floaters and a with head. Complex aroma of flowers like roses and other wild flowers. Fruits like pears, apples, bananas and oranges. Also notes of citric peels, incense, herbs like coriander and others, clove, allspice light nutmeg, light white pepper, peppermint bubblegum and yeasty notes of bread dough . Fantastic esters. Spicy flavour with coriander and cove. Fruity notes of citrus like oranges and oranges peel. Carefully carbonated, soft mouthfeel. Yeasty, bread notes. Tiny sweet and light bitter with a sourish sting. Medium body. A very good, have it all type of Saison.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2007
Tasted 14/06/2007. Bright gold with a creamy white head. Sweet malt on the nose, at first, then grassy herbal notes, followed by a spicy phenolic aspect. Fantastic balance in the mouth - strong herbal hop bitterness, surprisingly weighty malt profile and a slightly spicy yeast character. Very polished, very herbal. Not as funky or raw as I was expecting.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy gold, with an aroma of grass, straw and yeast. The flavour is similar to a Belgian blonde, but with fruity overtones and a spiciness to it. The finish is bitter and the palate just right. A supremely drinkable Saison.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Split a bottle with my wife and really enjoyed it. The smell reminded me of Brugge right away. The flavor was not a strong as I expected, but was really smooth. It finishes long and dry. I would get this again.

Periander (50) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Pours cloudy gold with a citric, yeasty and floral nose. Flavor starts moderately sweet with some citric acidity and a peppery note along with a moderate hop bitterness that stays through a long dry finish. Certainly a style to investigate further.

Stew41 (1967) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 9, 2007
Really impressed with this. Huge sparkling whiter-than-white head contrasts nicely with glowing orange body. Small traces of sediment. Lively nose of fruit (banana), citrus, hops and warming spices. Palate weight is quite strong and probably plays above the 6.5%. Cloves, aniseed, liquered notes, quite thick and resiny. Definately traces of a Belgian blonde in flavour. Finishes strongly with some bitter hops and a whack of aniseed. Most enjoyable. (2005 Vintage? BB 3/2008)

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Fresh, lively, yeasty and hoppy. Dull gold with a faint haze. Nose invitingly estery with banana, juicy citrus and a slightly lambic edge of wood and vinegar. Zestily fruity with a tang of orange and robustly bitter hops. Possibly some wheat and a dusting of anise-like spice. A bit wit, a bit Lambic, a bit drily spicy blond. Tasty, quenching Saison.
