Saison Dupont Belgian Farmhouse Ale

When they say Farmhouse, they aren’t kidding! I’m not much for barns and farm animals, but if there was a good way to describe all of these aromas, they are in this beer. It’s a really nice and complex Saison Dupont offering, much more involved than their more standard “Brasserie” offering (also commonly called just Saison Dupont). Think a musty farmhouse, but yet still really attractive with a lighter body and a sharp front palette. It has some traditional Belgian bitterness, but is smooth with a dry finish. An excellently crafted beer this is a real treat. It’s light, but able to stand up to heartier dishes and is very unique.

    This actually sounds like a great beer. Maybe because I'm not drinking.

  • And if you were drinking?  New “favorite” that I haven’t blogged about yet, but will – Maredsous Double.  Wow.I’ll do my best and drink for you.

    Nice review of one of my favorite beers. I think though, that Dupont is the brewery, and Saison is the beer style. Ommegang Brewery, for example, also makes a "Saison" that they call Hennepin. Great with moules-frites.
