Saison Dupont

Siason Dupont tap handle_webSaison Dupont (6.5% ABV) – Located in Tourpes, the Dupont Brewery has been brewing beer since 1844.  Saisons are sturdy farmhouse ales and historically, as noted on the Saison Dupont website, “… this beer was brewed in the winter, to be drunk in the following summer by the workers (seasonworkers) on the fields.”  My Saison Dupont poured with a blond/orange color.  The beer had a white head and a mild malty/citrus/yeasty aroma.  The beer is light to medium bodied and flavors of malt, citrus, and hay were present with a very mild hop bitterness and dry finish.  This is the perfect beer after a hot summer day of work.

Thanks for your comment. Cheers!
