Vaiz (3257) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle @2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Hazy amber pour, thick white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel malts, slightly spicy and with a hint of aged yeast. Flavor is quite sweet, caramel, yeasty, sugars and with a thick body and very well balanced. Nice brew.

jmgreenuk (4004) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle at the De Molen Second Tuesday Tasting, January 2013. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, resin, slightly floral. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with watery malt woody medicinal hop bitter palate and a long not so pleasant bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

TET (1543) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
A beautiful colour, reddish brown, a head is dense, quite big and blond. The nose is fruitfull and slightly earthyness, some apricots, spices and after a long thinking clearly at minced meat pasty. Taste of fruits, tartness, biscuity malts, spices. At least medium+ bodied with high carbonation. The body is quite heavy with hint of alcohol in the taste and the strong carbonation lightening that nicely. This can be notified for Dupond’s beer at least when you know what you are tasting. Quite basic belgian strong ale, but still tastefull.

574deadzone (980) - North Central, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours a hazy garnet-orange with substantial suspended sediment and a thick bubbly khaki head that hangs out a while and leaves some touches of soapy lace. Refreshing nose involves rustic spicy yeast, light citrus, pear, sweet grain, and dusty notes. Pretty sweet flavor, somewhat tart, with a fair bitterness. Light to medium bodied, high champagne-like carb, tingly, with a caramel-sweet then drying finish. A fine and enjoyable brew that complimented a hearty meal nicely.

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has some nuttiness and some malty & dusty aromas. There’s a really nice balance of earthiness and fruitiness all around here.

The flavor is a touch dusty with some bright pear. It’s pretty dry with some leafiness. It’s got a real pronounced caramel presence but keeps it dry... so there’s not much sweetness behind that caramel flavor, it’s sort of a neat trick.

It’s lively on the palate.
Boy I’m tossing courtesy scores @ these shelf beers all damn day 2-day.

poech73 (147) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2013
Bière ambrée a la robe cuivrée et un col fin. Au nez, fortes senteurs de levure, fine amertume, malt cara et esters alcooliques. En bouche, c’est la rondeur du cara qui arrive en 1er sans être pesante avec des saveurs céréalières surette. Ici, le sucre est presque imperceptible même si bien présent, contribuant à ce taux d’alcool élevé (Cassonade?). Le palais est sec. La langue pique. Belle amertume fine qui titille les papilles sur la longueur avec des notes légèrement terreuses et aigres. Donc , un bel assemblage qui remplit toute la bouche mais où aucun ingrédient ne prend le pas sur l’autre pour une une saison, en fait, bien charpentée et gouleyante .

curepute (138) - New York, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Hazy dark orange with big bubble one finger head. On the nose you get sweet grains. Not to sure about this, maybe had a bad one, cork said 2011 so maybe is not one to age. Had a good booze taste but weird musky malts. It’s like a home brew gone wrong. Probably just my bottle.

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2013
Flasche (0,75 l) von Moine Austère, Tournai. - Schönes Orangerot. Schon in der Nase die unverkennbare Dupont-Hefe mit ihrer einzigartigen, komplexen Mischung aus Süße und erdiger Schwere. Im Antrunk schwer, karamelmalzig und fruchtig-würzig, mit Noten von Orangeat, grünen Trauben, Aprikosen, Gras, Erde und Leder. Später kommt Hopfenbittere dazu, für feinere Hopfenaromen ist kein Raum. Sahnig im Mund. Trockener, bitterer Abgang. - Großartiges, schweres und sehr würziges Bier, unverkennbar Dupont.
