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.

Hobbledehoy (10) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a huge white head and heavy carbonation. Aroma is strong and wheaty like a belgian white with hints of cloves, oranges, and white grapes. The flavor is a pleasant mix of oranges, grapes, and citrus sweetness with an acidic bite. Finish is dry with medium bitterness and a slight alcoholic warmth. Smooth medium bodied consistancy with a pleasant acidic fizzy carbonation. A very complex well balanced Saison.

vyvvy (6056) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Pours hazy yellow with a very large white head. Spicy and sharp citrus aroma with some earthy yeast, and smooth light fruit as well. Medium to full bodied with a good amount of soft carbonation. Starts with a very smooth fruitiness (apricot / necterine / citrus) and light spice - very smooth with the carbonation working to evenly distribute the flavors throughout the mouth. The finish has lots of spicy hops that mixes well with the other flavors. An fantastic beer.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle at Delirium. Cloudy yellow. Lots of sediment. Yeasty spice dominates aroma but theres a musty element there as well. Slightly sour perhaps. Liked it. To bad its not available in Sweden.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Very cloudy yellow body with initially extremely thick head, probably as a result of being conditioned in the bottle. Smells yeasty, citrusy, piney, with also hints of skunk and cardboard... Not sure if thats supposed to be there or now, but since its ina green bottle, and it apparently was brewed in 2005 in Belguim, anythings possible I suppose. After waiting for the 5 inch head to become a 4 inch head to a 3 inch head and pouring more in my big glass, a rocky head formed, and the murky yellow body had tons of little crumbs in it. Tastes peppery and hoppy with a citrus afteraste. I wanted to like this, but I have to say that if you want a good saison, try Hennepin from Ommegang, at the very least itll be fresher presumably. But as I said, I may have got a skunked bottle. Ill try to find this somewhere else to try again....

JFGrind (2019) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2006
750 ml corked bottle, that poured foamy and had a crisp, fruity-spiced flavor. Aroma was musty but allover a refreshing summertime Saison.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Pours hazy golden with a big long lasting head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, earthy, spicy. Taste is the same with some light earthy funk. very good.

beerbiere (101) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
750ml 2005 bottle. Pours hazy straw colored, huge foamy everlasting compact head and strong carbonation. Aroma of hay, banana, citrus and pepper with a touch of yeast. Flavor is so refreshing, incredible balance a little sweet, a hint sour and moderate dry herbal bitterness. Body is round. While not being old, this bottle was fruitier and less dry than younger ones. This is my all-time favorite!

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2006
06 State College Brew Expo. Tom Peters Pairing Fine Food and Beer Seminar. Paired with various Fine Belgian Cheeses. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a foamy white sustaining head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, banana, yeast and various Belgian spices and pepper. Flavors of the same with a slight sourness, more of the pepper and a sweet tartness. Cheese really helped pick out some of the things going on in this beer. Nice match.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Aromas of citrusy hops, touch of pepper, caramel malt, some fruitiness that is almost like banana, but not... then some vinous, dried fruit notes. Nice with an interesting earthy note. Bright and cludy golden-yellow with a huge and rocky, white head. Opened with a flurish, pop and a cork into the ceiling. Light malt flavors with a complex spicey character in teh finish, sweet initially, but a touch of bitterness balances it out. There is also a touch of skunky earthiness in the finish. Very lively carbonation with a metallic texture that fills the mouth. Very nice.

750ml bottle. Straw colored liquid under a beautiful, thick merengue head. Delicous, aromatic nose with a smooth mouthfeel. Really something great.
