Saison Dupont Vieille Provision – Brasserie Dupont, 6.5% ABV, 750 ml., (Tourpes, Belgium)


“Saison Dupont is a classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is a beautifully balanced, complex beer that has a refreshing fruitiness and long, dry finish. It is bottled unfiltered so it may be cloudy or have a slight sediment but this is normal and perfectly natural.
