BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dupont sprl
Belgium

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.”

Pours a light straw yellow. Nose shows citrus zest, Brett, funk and spiced yeast. Taste is light zest, mild citrus/funk and some farmhouse yeast. Hint of burnt sugar there too. Not overly sweet either. Highly carbed. The cork blew off after the cage was removed.
