Saison Dupont (Vielle Provision) – Brasserie Dupont (2012)

Brasserie Dupont Saison Dupont (still labeled as Vielle Provision here in the USA) is considered the standard of this refreshing Belgian farmhouse style. Saison (season in French) originally referred to refreshing ales brewed by farmers to be consumed during the summer. These beers started out around 3% abv but modern interpretations hover closer to 5-6% range. Saison Dupont is 6.5% and most current American saisons copy the yeast used by the Dupont brewery because it ferments better at warmer temperatures. Saison Dupont is popular all over the world and we have had the pleasure of tasting it in several countries including Belgium. This review is of a 2012 bottle purchased and enjoyed locally. We had our bottle of Saison Dupont on New Year’s Eve so this was the first beer enjoyed by BLC in the 2013. keep reading...
