Saison Dupont by Brasserie Dupont

Ah, Belgian beers. Historical, flavorful, traditional – though nothing says Belgium better than the farmhouse ale, Saison Dupont by Dupont.

This lovely blond ale was traditionally brewed in winter for summer enjoyment after a long hard day of harvest. Fortunately, today, this beer is readily available anytime of year.

It’s a good thing too, because this crispy, thirst quenching, bottle conditioned ale makes for a great accompaniment to a light afternoon snack such as a cheese and bread plate. In fact this beer pairs so well with these snacks the brewery actually added a bread bakery and cheese making facility during the 1990’s.

On draught this ale shines even brighter, though in a 25oz+ bottle, and at 6.5% abv Saison Dupont’s taste and texture is unmatched.

Snag one as soon as possible.

    1. Wendy, glad you liked. Happy to hear you’ll be sharing this. Saison Dupont is one of the best Belgian beers I have ever sampled. Love your site by the way. The Dupont posters are great.

  1. this is one of my favorites and I will be opening one soon. I just spent most of the day at a track meet and I am ready for the crisp and refreshing Saison Dupont.

    Cheers!

  2. I’ve only had Saison Dupont once, but it is the beer that got me into saisons. I remember writing something in my tasting notebook about how it would be the perfect beer for a hike: super refreshing and quaffable. I’d love to drink it more often, but the cost is a bit steep for a barely-working college student; saisons are, however, my favorite style to brew, and Dupont has a lot to do with that (along with Wyeast’s 3711 strain, which I know isn’t Dupont’s, but is a freaking beast).
