Brasserie Dupont – Saison Dupont Vieille Provision

Brasserie Dupont - Saison Dupont Vieille ProvisionOur 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.

  1. I'm just curious. Did you let this one warm up a bit before drinking it? Saison Dupont has far more flavor than wheat/bread, including that citrus flavor mentioned on the bottle. It should have a slight spicy flavor as well. It really is a drinkable beer with nice complexities. It's basically the ultimate saison.

  2. I didn't mention it in the review, but we definitely let it warm up a bit. After initially tasting it and realizing the flavor wasn't robust, I suggested to Sean and Kerry that we wait awhile before finishing. We were in the middle of playing some card games, so I bet it was at least 15-20 minutes before we finished the bottle. Maybe 30 minutes or more (we were distracted).

    I expected it to be more complex, but I just wasn't tasting the complexities. Really good beer nonetheless.
