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".

Wonderful fluffy white head. Straw yellow with lots of suspended yeast dancing through bubbles. The flavor is slightly acidic and very refreshing. With the acidity and the carbonation ... this is reminiscent of champaigne. Very drinkable brew and perfect for a 90 degree indian summer day.

Yellow colored with suspended yeast particles topped with a thick, creamy, white, long-lasting head. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Spicy, earthy, grassy, yeasty taste with a dry tangy finish. A little too light bodied for my preference, but a very crisp and refreshing beer, especially on a hot summer day.

Cidery, grassy and smooth. Dry finish. A classic example of a saison. ......

Grassy, spicy and dry notes dominate. Balances well but falls behind Pipaix.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2005 Rerate: Oh, my goodness did underestimate this one, at 3.3 early on. This is the real deal, a more herbal type saison, with far less sweetness than I originally thought. Wispy, yet full. With excellent licheny sediments. Recommended. Original: My first Saison. Hmmmm...huge head, golden color, very spicy aroma. I’ve seen something like this before. Then, cotton candy aroma wafts in...I swear it is as sweet as the devil! Weird! I guess it is pretty dry, yet still quite sweet/spicy. I see the comparison to the Dulle Teve 10, I guess, now that my eyes are opened. Hmmmm...a horse of a moderately different color. Trippel-ly, but not. Seems to be made very nicely. Addition: Seems a bit spoiled...pretty freaky and I took a nice long time with it.

Pale gold color with a thick rich head. The aroma was malty with spicy hop undertones. the aroma had a hint of sourness to it but not in a real bad way. the flavor was full of malt with a strong hoppy finish. some spicyness was evident throughout.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2003 Not good as Duvel, but beter than Chimay White and Leffe Blonde. One of the top belgian ales, but most belgian ales are overrated. England, Scotland and Germany have ales that belgium cant match too. Cant really tell alot of difference between Belgian Saison and French Biere de Garde. Of those types of beers I prefer 3 Monts from France. But Duvel is the king of Strong Pale/White Ale.

crisp, light and fruity but the flavor drops off rapidly, improves as the bottle goes on
