The Saison Dupont is a top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle. Since 1844, this beer has been brewed in our farm-brewery, during the winter time. Then this beer became a second refermentation in the barrel. During the next summer, this very thirst-quenching beer was served to the “saisoniers” which were working on the fields. Surely therefore, our Saison Dupont is considered as “the classic” among the Belgian season beers!

Coppery blond, the finest aromas and a strong bitterness transform this beer into a thirst-quenchener with no equal, just the way it was created. Our selection of yeasts is the perfect base for these typical aromas and ditto taste. A real refermentation in the bottle, which will continue for a long time in your cellar, result into this complex and particular aromatic beer.

4.8/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
The colour is golden – orange, the liquid is a little hazy (the beer is bottle conditioned, but it was quite easy to decant it properly). The gigantic foam sinks slowly down to a three finger white compact head with a beautiful crater. The lacing is massive!

The smell is deep and generous: Lots of fruity, somewhat sour malt is mixed with a hint of alcohol, lots of fresh yeast, wheat dough, cookies, fresh herbs and flowers.

The taste is perfectly balanced, making it a very drinkable brew, even at 6.5%: Wheat dough, lots of fresh fruits, mild notes of yeast and boiled ham, and a hint of butterscotch. The aftertaste develops into a surprisingly bitter flavour with notes of spicy hops, some alcohol, bitter citric fruits and spices like cloves and cardamom.

The carbonation makes the flavours even better; it is quite strong but not sharp at all. They create a little foam in the mouth. The liquid is creamy.

A delicious brew!

Serving: 750 ml bottle (“bottled on 01 24 23”) poured into a 14 oz Rastal Teku glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with a rocky head of sudsy white bubbles and clumpy lace.

Smell: Straw, hay, black pepper, cloves and slight banana on the nose.

Taste: Straw, hop and yeast spice continue atop a clean malt base with subtle grain sweetness, refined bitterness and a crisp, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body filled out by lively carbonation.

Overall: At once refreshing and drinkable while also deeply complex and characterful.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a chalice glass. Hazy blonde color with big white head that lasts for a while. Smell is a bit funky, hay, green apple, spicy hop. Taste is tart, fruity (apples again, pear), clove, musty. Feel is light, well carbonated, and dry in the finish. The tartness really hits in the back of your tongue. Overall, outstanding beer that is loaded with character and just hits the spot.

Pours mid amber gold, mildly cloudy with some floating sediment. Instant aroma of old wood, clover and grass. Pure farm. Taste follows with rich oak and musty leather and barn. Full and delicious feel. Real character.

16oz undated can.

Pours clear gold with three inches of dense white head. Persistent retention with plenty of spongy lacing. Clove, bubblegum, apples, wet hay in the nose. Light bodied with a soft but crisp mouthfeel. Earthy spice and Belgian phenols on the palate with honey-drizzled biscuits underneath. Clove-studded apples and faint peppercorns. Finishes dry and spicy.

Poured from a 330ml bottle .

Pours a lightish orange , clear with a thick white head that becomes a ring . The smell is full on Belgian yeast and very mellow with it and the taste follows suit , that Belgian yeast to the fore with a slight orange hint running through and a pleasant light bitterness from almost the beginning of every sip , everything is very well balanced. The mouthfeel is good , mouth coating and creamy light carbonation. Overall this is a splendid beer , rich and mellow and rounded on every corner .
