Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Les Bons Voeux means best wishes, which is what Brasserie Dupont sends with this very special saison ale brewed for the holidays. Redolently aromatic, rich and velvety.

Rich gold color, fragrant (lemony with hints of pepper, banana and clove), as all the beers of Dupont are with a full, deep malt richness that lingers on your tongue for what seems the whole holiday season. Considered by some the finest offering from this unparalleled Brewery. “The best Belgian beer, if ever there could be such an award...a sumptuous, seductive 9.5% beer. Because of it’s intensity, I would recommend the novice graduate to this beer. However, if a saison that is starting to lean towards being a triple appeals to you, and if its in season, don’t hesitate.”

Most recently on tap at D&T in Houston.

A: Slightly hazy, almost murky golden/orange. A two finger white head forms with rings of sticky lace.
S: Musky basement like funk up front. Peppery spice, grassy, with some passion fruits in the finish. Excellent.
T: Follows the nose with a cellar like musk. Peppery, slightly phenolic spice from the yeast. Grassy and floral with a great lingering dried passion fruit flavor. Papaya, mango, lemon rind. Love it.
M/D: a medium body with great carbonation. Perfectly crisp, dry, and refereshing. Just a bit stronger ABV that I like for the style. Considering this is there winter Saison, it is to be expected. Given that, so easy and enjoyable to drink.

Another excellent Saison, and I should expect nothing less. I wish I could find this easier. Highly recommended.

This becomes a completely different beer (in a Very positive way) with 3-5 years of age on it. The beer rounds out and the the flavors really develop and meld together.
