Brasserie Dupont – Avec les Bons Voeux – 9.5%
From the renowned Brasserie Dupont comes Avec les Bons Voeux at 9.5%. De-corking gives a musky wine like aroma mingled in with a Belgian noble hop aroma and the fruity incense of Saison yeasty esters. The pour is an absolute marvel of perfection, deep golden and inviting, generating a thick creamy head that lingers like a dream. The taste is sweet, with some headiness, instantly kicking in with a fast bitterness and a hint of warmness as the alcohol makes itself known. The carbonation is thick and almost Champagne like, with contributes to a wonderful mouth feel sensation. The distinct aroma continues to develop through ambient warmth, adding a subtle creamy sweet aroma, merging perfectly with the fruity esters. A Saison ‘triple’ hybrid beer of sublime epic proportions. Both astounding and amazing. Bitter sweet merge in perfect harmony. My best beer of 2017 so far!
