Today we feature a beer which is a bit different, it is a Saison Ale, which is a term we have never heard of before at Hoppsy, but by the taste of this magnificent beer there are bound to be more stoires of Saisons in coming months if this is any indication- it is sensational. The beer in question is Saison Dupont which is produced by Brasserie Dupont which is located in Tourpes in Belgium. The brewery only dates back to the 1950′s and is found on a farm which dates back to 1759. The Dupont Beer is a 6/5% alcohol volume beer and like many great Belgium beers is fairly cloudy and light yellow in colour- not unlike Hoegaaden and has a fruity and spicy aroma and taste- and being bottle fermented is well carbonated, and there’s a cork like champagne to pop when opening the bottle. The beer is available outside Belgium and is a popular Belgium beer in the USA, and we found it here in Australia at one of our specialty beer stores. Look out for it when you are wanting something a bit special.
