Sunday Saison Dupont

by EJ

I picked up the below from a really good bottle shop in St Kilda. Expensive but an expansive range and hard to choose from especially when funds are low!


This is a pretty tart and strongly bitter Saison. Very good when very thirsty. I love the dryness and high carbonation. There is also a decent alcohol glow in the throat as the beer is drunk which surprised me.

The glass is not a true Saison beer glass but it is an original Waterford Crystal bought forty years ago direct from the source. Heavy, beautiful and irreplaceable.

I recently downloaded the Brew Your Own app which came with a free digital issue all about Belgium styles, Saison in particular. Plenty of good reading material to get through in preparation for by first Saison brew day.
