Dupont Saison Dupont

SaisonDupontBrewer: Dupont Brewery, Tourpes, Belgium
Style: Saison
ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: Unlisted

Description: 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.

Tasting Notes: Saison Dupont is considered a classic when it comes to this style of beer. And it certainly hits all the right notes. Its has a golden-orange and cloudy hue and grows a thick head upon pouring. It has an effervescent, bubbly quality that is indicative of bottle fermentation, its strong yeasty backbone compliments with the taste with a hint of spice and bitterness, and its mellow malt base is highly drinkable and refreshing. Add to that a hint of lemon and coriander, and you have this brew.
