Our friends Sean and Kerry came over last night to celebrate New Years Eve with us. We had a great time playing games and eating a vegan Chinese food dinner. To keep us further entertained, I made us a couple of huge pitchers of scorpion bowl. Before drinking copious amounts of said scorpion bowl, we decided to share and review my bottle of Saison Dupont Vieille Provision.
The 750ml bottle has a cork, which you don’t find very often in a beer. Kerry was fiddling with the cork and mentioned that it smelled “herbatious”. The beer itself smelled very wheaty.
Being unfiltered, the beer was opaque. Plenty of sediment in this one; black flecks are even visible. There was a ton of soapy looking head. I was surprised to see such big bubbles that formed the head.
The beer has a ton of carbonation. The sole taste is a bready/wheaty flavor. Although the bottle talks of citrus we really didn’t get much of it. Not a complex beer, but a very drinkable beer. Not “sessiony” at all.
