Saison Dupont

Saison Dupont

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.
Style Pale Ale
Country Belgian Beers
ABV 6.50%
Serving Temp 8 to 10°C
Bottle Size 330ml

The refreshing, thirst-quenching saison was created for field workers—known as “saisoniers”—to enjoy whilst working during the hot summer months. Since 1844, Saison Dupont has been setting the standard for Belgian saisons and is internationally renowned for being the best-of-the-best and a perfect accompaniment to food.

This quintessential saison is best described as being lively, zesty and very refreshing. A bubbly carbonation gives this straw-coloured beer a dense head whilst carrying the aromas of bread, citrus, spice and hops to your nose. Bold bitterness with zesty hops and citrus are complemented by a solid malty sweetness. A long, dry finish transforms this beer into the unbelievably drinkable beer it was created to be.

  • Saison style guide!

    Review by David

    Fantastic saison. Serious peppery phenolic form the Dupont yeast with a decent kick of hops - lovely beer (Posted on 08/12/2017)

  • old-school classic saison

    Review by lenoz

    You can see why this has become the default saison. It's a good example. But "default" also probably leads to rightful accusations of not being at all adventurous. It's a belgian classic, but not a modern one. Well rounded but a bit too bubbly and champagne-like for my tastes. (Posted on 06/12/2017)

  • Light and refreshing

    Review by Benjamin

    Pretty easy to drink. Not my favourite beer but I wouldn't turn down a bottle. Refreshing and a good introduction to this style of beer. (Posted on 26/11/2017)

  • Drinkable but not one of Belgiums best

    Review by martin

    As Saisons go this is quite light. OK but not a masterpiece (Posted on 21/11/2017)

  • Saison Perfection

    Review by Bacchanalian

    Rarely have I had a better saison. Especially one of this style. Less crispness than the average saison but beautifully smooth with an incredibly rich fruity flavour. Quintessentially Belgian. (Posted on 20/11/2017)

  • Refreshing

    Review by Ben

    Fruity and refreshing, not as dry as other saisons I've had and i like it all the more for it. Luckily it was a 330ml bottle as i could drink this by the pint. (Posted on 17/11/2017)

  • Best Saison on the market

    Review by Russell

    It's just simply perfection as far as Saisons go. (Posted on 16/11/2017)

  • 3.5

    Review by TonyL

    Nothing wrong with the quality, just not a huge Belgium style beer fan. I'll keep trying. (Posted on 15/11/2017)

  • Smooth and tasty

    Review by James

    Refreshingly light, not the best tasting beer ever but it does the job well! (Posted on 28/07/2017)

  • Dank

    Review by AndyC

    Very tasty saison from the masters at Dupont. Typical farmhouse mustiness which has been perfected over years of expert brewing. Delicious. (Posted on 21/07/2017)

  • Best Saison

    Review by Amanda

    The best saison I've had to date. Perfectly balanced. (Posted on 09/07/2017)

  • Lively!

    Review by Good Head

    Golden and cloudy with a good frothy head. THis is a very lively year due to the yeast in the beer. Very refreshing with a classic saison flavour. (Posted on 08/07/2017)

  • A perfect Saison

    Review by Shunt

    If you've never had a Saison before then do not hesitate to taste this. If you have had a Saison before then this is a good as it gets.
    The classic yeasty saison flavours offer up a slightly sour flavour, with pepper and subtle light herbs on the palette..
    A perfect exquisite example of this style (Posted on 08/07/2017)

  • Tis the saison

    Review by Luke

    Hazy golden hints of spice the quintessential saison for me classic beer (Posted on 27/06/2017)

  • Lovely refreshing saison

    Review by Jo

    Hazy, golden colour, floating sediment, yeasty, apple, honey and peppery aroma, medium crisp mouthfeel, yeasty, ripe banana, caramel and peppery flavour, sweet, slightly bitter aftertaste. (Posted on 26/06/2017)

  • Mouth Watering

    Review by Beer Savvy

    Just thinking about this beer makes my mouth water. It is a joy to drink and I couldn't wait to try it when I received it in my Beer club after reading all the hype. This beer definitely doesn't disappoint! (Posted on 25/06/2017)

  • Interesting

    Review by Dominik

    Citrusy and spicy, complex. Fizzy with a nice head, with a slight creaminess from the carbonation. (Posted on 22/06/2017)

  • Fizzy and clean

    Review by Ali

    This lives up to being a great example of a saison. Full of herbal / fruity aromas, it has depth but yet light with a dry, clean finish. I'll be ordering again for sure. (Posted on 09/06/2017)

  • Very good Saison

    Review by John

    One of the best Saison's I have tried. Fizzy, cloudy and refreshing. I would highly recommend giving it a go. (Posted on 04/06/2017)

  • Like meeting one of your heros

    Review by Changefromaten

    Had heard a lot of hype about this classic beer and it doesn't disappoint. There's not many beers that live up to their reputation but this certainly does. Vinous,sweet, sparkling apple, tangy, dry finish. And that's just scratching the surface. There's a pureness about it. Perfect drink for it's original purpose. Like meeting one of your heroes and they are everything you wanted them to be. (Posted on 25/04/2017)

  • As Belgian as a statue of a little boy peeing into a fountain

    Review by beer and book club 0000002

    Perfect for fans of Batshuayi and Hercule Poirot. Tasty beer not massively dissimilar to leffe nectar. (Posted on 16/04/2017)

  • Excellent Saison

    Review by Mr.B

    My first foray into a Saison style beer and its awesome. Easy drinkable. if this is setting the benchmark for Saisons than you might be disappointed with others after this.
    Definitately can see why this was drunk after a hard days of work in the fields. Will be ordering some more. (Posted on 11/04/2017)

  • Classic Saison

    Review by Oddrods

    Brilliant example of this style. Lots of fizz, yeasty and spicy yet very refreshing. Go on buy one! (Posted on 09/04/2017)

  • for mass production, it aint bad

    Review by Anton

    Everyone uses this as the benchmark saison. Although its not as good as some smaller brewers who dont export very far, such as waterwolf by de hoop brouwerij in zaandam, it is one of the best widely available saisons. definitely worth the money! (Posted on 31/03/2017)

  • Classic

    Review by Beebo

    Appearance: milky yellow, frothy, Virginal white head. Aroma: mildly grassy, some overripe fruits, dank pineapple. Flavour: lactose, nice fruity flavour, weed like hops, some lovely fruit in the finish. Decent. (Posted on 23/03/2017)

  • Great Example of the Saison Style

    Review by StuH

    If you want to explore the Saison style you can't go far wrong from putting this in your basket.
    Its a classic example of a Saison Beer with the yeasty Peppery esters on the taste buds giving you a real feel for this style.
    Don;t hesitate to get this. (Posted on 10/03/2017)

  • Benchmark

    Review by AdyG

    This is somewhat of a benchmark for saisons and it shows. A treat of a beer. I'd work in a field for this... (Posted on 26/02/2017)

  • Great tasting Belgian classic

    Review by Jon

    This saison beer pours hazy with a real fruity taste. Nice and lively with a good strength to boot. (Posted on 19/02/2017)

  • Nice drop....

    Review by MH

    pours hazy amber with a lasting fine head and funky fruity caramel aromas. Rich and funky spicy-sweet, with a soft noble bitterness. (Posted on 10/02/2017)

  • Complicated beer

    Review by dazzler

    Could not get away with this one but wanted to taste it as it has good reviews, bit of a heavy drink for me, bitterness comes through but just not for me (Posted on 09/02/2017)

  • Classic

    Review by MH

    Aroma of peppery and spices. Clear straw with white head, lasting. Taste is dry and light bitter. Medium body, dry feel and dry spices finish. (Posted on 05/01/2017)

  • On-Pont!

    Review by Matt

    easy to drink with a nice yeasty taste coming through. Very lively fizz so be ready when opening the bottle as mine fizzed over, pour slowly. (Posted on 31/12/2016)

  • lovely example of a Saison

    Review by Thodd

    Light refreshing example of the saison style with the familiar taste of the zingy slightly funky yeast strand that makes this style so unique. (Posted on 22/11/2016)

  • Class Belgian ale

    Review by Martin

    Light, crisp and refreshing with the unmistakable Belgian yeast coming through. Lively fizz needs a slow pour (Posted on 22/11/2016)

  • OK

    Review by doomlord

    Not the finest example of the style, great for a hot summers day nice and refreshing but lacks the complexity of flavor to be a great drink. (Posted on 12/11/2016)

  • Definitely Belgian

    Review by Jo

    Hazy golden colour, combination of strong carbonation and floating sediment makes it almost look like a snowglobe in a glass, medium lasting white head, yeasty apple, honey and peppery aroma, medium crisp mouthfeel with some carbonation, yeasty ripe banana, caramel and peppery flavour, sweet yet slightly bitter aftertaste, really nice. (Posted on 02/11/2016)

  • Beautiful

    Review by wgardner

    A delightful, delicate, and refreshing Belgian tasting Saison. Very classy, this is one of the beers that kicked off the recent saison trend. (Posted on 28/10/2016)

  • A great Saison

    Review by Beer Baron

    A good saison, extremely fizzy with a great taste and lingering on the palate. Cloudy with hints of yeast, well worth a try. (Posted on 22/10/2016)

  • The best!

    Review by LoveBeers

    My all time favourite brew! Cannot recommend this enough. Classic and for good reason. (Posted on 25/07/2016)

  • Classic

    Review by Llamaman

    A classic saison, with all the yeasty, peppery funky flavours you'd expect. Never fails to refresh. (Posted on 10/07/2016)

  • Excellent.

    Review by Sam

    Lovely, a perfect example of the Saison style. Plenty of refreshing carbonation with notes of yeast ester, sweet malt and a perfect counterbalance of hop and mild fruit. (Posted on 26/06/2016)

  • Disappointing

    Review by Mark T

    I'm finding it hard to rave about Saisons but was expecting better from this one given the good reviews.
    Plenty of hoppy and fruity flavours but still no real wow factor here (Posted on 23/06/2016)

  • Now a Saison Fan

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    At first the cloudyness was a bit off putting but the first sip allayed my worries. Very fresh and fruity with an underlying honey taste. (Posted on 21/06/2016)

  • Amazing!

    Review by Chris H

    A true classic and an absolute must try! It never disappoints and hits all the right notes. (Posted on 18/05/2016)

  • Average

    Review by S Stanbridge

    It's okay, but nothing more. Got a little better as I drank it. But there are better saisons out there. Much preferred the Heksen & Trollen from Beerhawk. (Posted on 11/05/2016)

  • Exceptional

    Review by HeyBeer

    A really amazing beer, one of my all time favourites! It must be one of the best beers in the world! (Posted on 08/05/2016)

  • Lip smacking good

    Review by Bruce

    This was my first Saison and what a wake up call to the taste buds from IPAs.

    Smell was yeast and apples to my nose, the sharpness was delightful.

    Great beer and one I will be buying again. (Posted on 01/05/2016)

  • Great saison!

    Review by Chris H

    Great example of the saison style. I've tried a few other and this is by far the best. It's not a style that I'm usually drawn to but I'll be ordering a couple more. (Posted on 25/04/2016)

    An excellent Saison and a terrific price! Zesty and crisp, it dances on the tongue - highly recommended. (Posted on 17/02/2016)

  • Lives up to the description

    Review by Jonna

    I wanted to try a saison and opted for this one due to its positive reviews and appealing price. Let's just say I'm pleased I took the dive. I'll be making one of these a regular in any future cases, especially at that price! (Posted on 16/02/2016)

  • The Reference Saison

    Review by Llamaman

    The craft revolution is causing Saisons to pop up all over the place, so it was nice to go back to the reference Saison beer, one I\'d not drunk for a few years.
    Think I may have drunk it a little too cold (impateience got the better of me), but it was still excellent. Dry, peppery, yeasty, a bit fruity. Very refreshing and a pleasant break from the hop-bombs. (Posted on 16/01/2016)

  • Disappointed

    Review by LoneR

    Maybe this was just the bottle I had, but i found this beer very disappointing. I was expecting a lot more. Yes, i get the fruitiness others speak of, but other than that it was a summer BBQ quaffing ale! Not one for me (Posted on 16/01/2016)

  • One Saison to Rule Them All

    Review by Jay Gamboa

    With more and more Saisons being released, it is nice to refer back to the one Saison by which all others should be judged against.

    Sure, some deviate and will not conform to the style but the basics should be there.

    But about this beer. Funny that others find it hoppy, the standard isn't hoppy, and that is why I like saisons, because they don't rely on availability of much sought-after hops (even tho I love Quelle Saison by Beavertown Brewery for precisely the opposite reasons); with Saisons it is all about the yeast and what it can produce. Wounderful mix of aromas with a pleasant body and mouthfeel, full yet crisp with plenty of popping ester aromas popping all throughout the duration of your drink. It is just a shame it must end so soon.

    (Posted on 04/12/2015)

  • Delicious and refreshing

    Review by JamesR

    When drunk chilled from the right glass its hard to beat the interesting and refreshing nature of this. I prefer this to most other Saisons I've tried which usually disappoint in comparison and aren't as easy to drink! (Posted on 21/11/2015)

    A slightly disappointing result following the build up from previous reviews. Will pay more attention to temperature as may have attempted this too cold. (Posted on 17/07/2015)

  • The quintessential saison

    Review by Erwin

    The Saison Dupont is the most famous and iconic beer of the saison kind. Saison is a container name for all beers that were brewed in Wallonia (Belgium) for the saisonniers - the migrant seasonal workers. The style became unpopular when many breweries stopped making the style because other styles were more popular or cheaper to produce. Dupont was one of the few breweries that kept on brewing the style and carved out its own niche.

    One of the first things you notice when you pour the beer into a glass is that there is quite a lot of carbonation. The beer is very crisp – dry even – with a bit of tart. The beer has a quite hoppy bitter which combines wonderfully with the dry character of the yeast. The finish is a bit peppery. It’s an ale that is both really complex and really simple – I would describe it as elegant. It’s a great thirst quencher that is perfect for summery days.

    The dry and peppery taste that are specific to the Saison Dupont yeast were picked up by home brewers in the last years and became a hit. There are now many variants and additions to the saison kind of beers on the market. I really enjoy many of these new beers that move the style into exciting new directions, but none are as iconic and classic as the Saison Dupont. If you never had any beers of this kind I highly recommend you start here! (Posted on 25/06/2015)
