There's a great video on YT on what a Saison is. In short, it's a farmhouse ale (pale or sometimes red) that was historically served to farm workers as a clean source of hydration. Without any distinctive characters and lower in alcohol then, the "Saison" only really gained it's signature when the house in question came into the equation. Also, based on my research, the checkered "Vielle Provision" yellow labels are the export labels.
As it was here, the Dupont Brewery's Saison is generally cloudy, very carbonated via bottle conditioning, zesty and spicy, bitter with a hint of sour, and a dry hoppy finish. For me, this is truly "The beer for all seasons" - the flavours are just so versatile. Perfect for a warm summer afternoon in the park, yet complex enough to pair with a 3-star dish. — 21 days ago
Wrong ID of wine. Enjoyed on October 6, 2020, 2019 vintage — 16 days ago
Well six years after release and it is phenomenal. So we’ll balanced with a bit of persimmons, apricot jam, almost a vanilla cherry flavor to probably from the wine barrel. Definite funk and acid but restrained. I haven’t seen as many sours bottled from them the last few times I was up there, but hope to get some more. — 6 days ago
One of smoothest beers I’ve ever had. Thick head and superb Carmel notes ♥️ — 12 days ago
Wow! Nelson Hose from de Garde. Tons of citrus, barnyard, obvious Nelson hop flavor profile of lychee, tropical fruits, but that grainy rye type of finish. This is so funky and nicely tart that it is immensely drinkable. One of the best hopped wild sours I’ve had. If you don’t like Nelson hops stay away though. — 20 days ago
