Hazy gold with a rich creamy head. The aromas show a spicy, fruity, fresh apple and earthy hop character. At first, it’s full-bodied and fruity, then dry, with a quick and generous hop bittering on the finish. Complex, yet easy to drink with yeast and proteins constantly moving about. About what I expected. GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - OCT 10, 2006
750ml green bottle. I hate green bottles! Light yellow color with an oversized yet managable head. Just don’t pour too much at once and you’re okay. Smelled a little like skunk and damp basement. Tasted like *surprise!* a belgian beer. Tastes like a summer beer and drinks like a summer beer, refreshing and mildly spicy. I thought I caught a hint of coriander at first sip. Satisfying mouthfeel, especially towards then end when I poured the yeast into my glass. Easy drinking, good for warmer weather. I had mine at about celler temperature, and that was also acceptable. dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2006
Based on activity alone This one should get perfect marks. The most amazing Things I have ever seen from a beer. Swirling bubbles and yeast. Putting Champagne to shame... and then there’s that mountain of head all frothy and white. Wow! The taste is clean with citric astrigence. It’s what I call akin to eating an orchard apple at the barn on top of a haystack. A MUST experience. kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 Pours a deep yellow. Very large head as well as head retention. Aroma is floral and grassy. Very light bodied. Initially sweet then a bit of spice in the finish. Very smooth and drinkable beer. beeranarchist (232) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
WAUW, what a head. Probably one of the most impressing heads I’ve . This pale beer gets top character because of the great, white head. Flavour is somewhat sweet with a little bitternes. Light body, quite refreshing and spicy/bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Draught at Milltown, Carrboro NC. Poured into its own glass. This was one of the first saisons I ever had and it continues to be one of my favorites. Pour is cloudy yellow/orange with thumb-sized white head. Nose is floral and citrus hops, yeast, and spices. This beer is incredibly smooth and unoffensive. Very refreshing. A Great session brew for any occassion. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2006
** Updated rating: Had two more of these babies on draught and just felt like I had to re-rate. This is one of the smoothest and tastiest beers I can imagine. Goes down so easy, but really tastes great with fruity, yeasty, and mild spice notes throughout. Nice use of hops as well. Had this so many times and I am just now beginning to see the light. Bring on summer and saison dupont!
Pour a hazy yellow. Serious big time head. Great head retention. Looks alot like a boddingtos poor just more yellowish. Aroma (is it me or do a green bottled beers have that skunk smell) Smelled slightly skuky and floral. Good hoppy taste. Not the best belgian I ever had but not bad at all. schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2006
33 cl bottle. I used to know ’Saison Dupont’ and ’Saison Dupont Vieille Provision’ and they were apparently different beers? This rating (in Dutch) is for ’ordinary’ SD. ’Amberkleurig met een gouden schijn, tamelijk troebel. Een stevige, schuimige, wandklevende witte kraag. Neus van gist, citrusvruchten en ’frangipannekes’. Droge, vrij bittere en licht kruidige smaak met een goede toets van citrusvruchten en een uitgesproken bittere afdronk. Droog mondgevoel, stevige prikkel streelt de tong.’ Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
750 ml corked bottle from the SAQ. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a massive and long lasting ffrothy white head that laces the glass very well. Aroma is coriander, malt, spices, citrus and yeast. Taste is similar to the aroma with a long bitter and spicy aftertaste and a medium to full body. Un autre excellent produit de la brasserie Dupont! dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Monstrous billowy white head. Spice, clove, nutmeg and sweet aromas. Very tasty, balanced with a snappy finish.
