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".

Tried this one at Cafe de Bruxelles in Lower West side of Manhattan with their Country Pate and Mussels. Nice fruity complement to the meal. Would like to try during the summer as suggested on the bottle.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2004 Haven't had this in over a year, but I recall it being deserving of a good rating. Big head and lots of nose. RERATE 10/04: Big white head, golden body with nice floating sediment, fruity, spicy nose, much like a tripel. Fruity, medium sweet body. Much like a tripel with less alcohol. A winner.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2003 Very nice cidery, champaign like aroma. A massive, fluffy, cloud white head that looks so light that it could be blown away like soap bubbles. Looks similar to unfiltered witbier, perhaps a little more copperish appearance. Medium body. Strange flavors I'm having a hard time pinpointing, but they aren't all pleasant. Slightly musty, champaign like, slightly sweet. Nice finish with some hop bitterness.

this is generally a decent farmhouse saison...my most recent bottle smelled of a skunk, but i have had it other times when it wasnt like this...i would like to try it again soon!

Pale golden colourd, very rich head. Lively, brie-cheese aroma, medium bodied, medium sweet. Spicy, complex, grassy finish. A very well made saison.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JAN 11, 2002
Quite abundant carbonation and head, as befits the style. Has the appearance of an unfiltered witbier. Light, golden malty flavors blend with very distinct fruity and sweet flavors, such as honey, apple and pear. Finish is rather long, and has just a faint hoppiness for the aftertaste. Pretty darned tasty, especially when drank at close to room temp. Super smooth medium body and good mouthfeel, too.

Highly carbonated, almost champagne-like. Beautiful rocky white head, left a great lace. Very sweet, orangy flavor and aroma, with a very dry finish. THE classic examplke of the Saison style. It is worth of it’s inclusion in Michael Jackson book ’Great Beer Guide’.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2001
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 hazy straw yellow with a proud cap of white foam. Quite bubbley. Wow! The aroma is so complex. Leather, pepper, bark, lemon, funk, rubber...The flavor is lemon, hop, cracked pepper, sourdough bread and field grass. A pleasant dryness in the finish.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2007 750ml: Pours a light orange with floaties and a nice white head, rich spicy aroma with hay, lemon, cobwebs and flowers, medium bodied with playful carbonation, starts and ends lightly bitter with a smooth dry spicy ending.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2001
Beautiful appearance. Bright gold with beautiful lacy head. Aroma is definitely spicy. Flavor is tart, yet not mouth-puckeringly so. Unfortunatley this beer is best when cold. The first few sips are the most enjoyable as some of the complexity fades as as a hop bitterness takes over. This may be a criticism of the style rather than the beer itself. A really decent saison. Emminently drinkable (when cold.)
