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".

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....

750 ml corked bottle, that poured foamy and had a crisp, fruity-spiced flavor. Aroma was musty but allover a refreshing summertime Saison.

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.

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!

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.

pours out an orangey cloudy color with a very bubbly white head. Very fruity aroma and taste, a nice sourness to it as well. Excellent beer for a 90 degree day like today. An excellent Belgian ale.

From a 750 ml. caged cork green bottle with a blurb on the back label and the year 2005 on the cork. Made a good appearance, poured a cloudy orangy golden with a foamy white that settled into a thin foamy lacing, good carbonation. Aromas of pears and apples, a herbal earthiness, a light spiciness and grainy malts. A crisp and carbonated smooth light bodied mouthfeel, good drinkability. Softly tart pear fruity, mild spice and musty herbal, dry yeastiness, light sweet grain maltiness and a dry fruity, herbal and grainy finish. A very nice saison, well worth trying.

Bottled. Pours a hazy golden color. Fairly large foamy white head. Strong yeasty aroma. Traces of graininess as well as some maltiness. Dry yeasty flavor up front. Fair amount of hoppy bitterness as well. Citric bitter finish. Well rounded full bodied beer.
