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.”

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.

2011 bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours a beautiful dark orange with a soft, shimmering white head.

S: Aroma brings light grapey oxidation, honeycomb, cloves, apple flesh.

T: Taste brings lightly astringent peppery bitterness, vinous, crusty bread, nectarine, vanilla.

M: Light-bodied with frothy yet pleasant carbonation.

O: An interesting saison/BSPA with a somewhat grapey profile that might be oxidation or might be the character of the beer.
