COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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".

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
This one seems very balanced despite an earthy herby layer with some bitter citrus tones but that layer aligns itself with that signature Belgian yeasty citrus spicy flavor which always keeps me coming back for more. There seems to be an aftertaste of cloves kicking as I swallow this beer. The aroma has a sense of bananas and spices but IMHO doesn’t do the taste much justice. I love the carb. factor, cloudiness and sediment. It was a pleasure to have this and Foret this weekend!

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
Bouteille 2006. Couleur orangée voilée, belle mousse qui persiste et colle légèrement au verre. Arôme d’épices, de levure et d’agrumes et de fruits. Goût complexe et équilibré d’épices, de levures, de houblons, d’herbes, bonne amertume. Finale sèche d’amertume et d’alcool. Corps plein, effervescence parfaite. Excellente saison.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 20, 2007
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with huge fluffy/creamy head. Lots of lace. Aroma is spices, yeast, some fruit and earth. Flavour is earth, a bit meaty, spices, zest and lots of yeast. An excellently balanced whole with a very filling palate.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 yeasty, spicy, dusty, fruity aroma. flavor is of meat, bread, earth, pears and citrus. so dry and delicious. pairs really well with grilled pork and smelly cheeses... 8/4/8/3/16/3.9

sampled fresh on tap... me don’t likey. clear golden/yellowy color with a rocky flufffy off white head. it lacks richness and depth. it does still maintain the spiciness and herbal twang. lots of lemon and dry parching hoppiness make it a pleasant drinker in the desert heat...7/3/7/3/16/3.7

2008 bottle housed november 2009... i crave the skunk on this stuff... i search and search for better examples but find myself always coming back to this... grainy, hoppy, dry and quenching. 8/4/9/5/18/4.4

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2007
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass, cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma was pronounced yeast, banana, citrus fruit and spice. The taste was quite dry and sour with notes of citrus fruit and yeast. Nice carbonation. Goes great with food.

3.9
clasley (153) - Arkansas, USA - APR 14, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a delicate white head. Mild aroma with hints of peach and spices. Wonderful mouthful. Highly carbonated with a dry sharp finish. Complex malt, fruit and spice flavors in a very drinkable beer.

3.6
mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2007
Creamy average white (mostly lasting) head into cloudy dark yellow body. Good lacing. Aromas of bubble gum, yeast, banana, and some spices. Flavor is initially lightly sweet and finishes lightly sweet as well but with a unique light bitterness. Light bodied. Dry textured. Soft carbonation. This was an okay brew...not my favorite style.

3.3
hapjydeuce (1000) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 13, 2007
Golden and light, with a frothy head and beautiful lacing. Malty aroma with notes of banana and thick breadish smells. Flavors of heavy citrus, just a bit of sugar and belgian yeast. Lively carbonation on the palate, with not much of a warm alcohol finish. Personally I like tripels more, but this was alright.

3.7
AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - APR 10, 2007
Brready fruit aroma, very nice. Quite hoppy in the mouth, I didn’t expect this to be so dry. Very nice, and quite sippy, but I think that I would have enjoyed this much more in warm weather rather than Alaska.

3.4
aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2007
The color was deep golden with a lot of carbonation. The head was creamy, frothy white with what looks like spice on top. The aroma was glue, earthy, alcohol, and hoppy. The flavor was sour, earthy, glue, and bitter. zThe flavor wasn’t as strong as I expected it to be. The palate was well carbonated. The finish was clean. I typically don’t like saisons, but this one was rather enjoyable. The flavor was less strong than other saisons I’ve had. \
