Shark_Pants (596) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2015
Cloudy amber with decent rocky head. Strong dried fruit aromas - dried apricot, pear, cherry, along with strong malty notes and some bubblegum. The taste reflects the dried fruits - apricot and cherry particularly, with a caramel and candi sugar malt sweetness too. A firm bitterness in the finish helps balance it. Alcohol is noticeable and, with a bit of rough bitterness, makes this less polished than some of Dupont’s other offerings. Medium bodied and somewhat acidic. Not bad.

bartlebier (3346) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2015
75cl bb08/2015, had a bottle of this once before. - Cloudy beige-amber pour, good organic cap. Odd earthy aroma of orchard fruits fallen and slowly rotting on moist pasture, quince pear and apple on their natural life path toward homemade marmelade - pierced by a good whiff of Belgian jenever alcohol, more than in Moinette. A grassy bitterness overconquers the spéciale belge style dry caramalts at first, bitterhusky cereals and wet grass make for a hard-to-love chicory-root-bitter mix of all essential Belgian soil. Upon pouring over half of the bottle and letting it chambre: both more honey sweetness and more of that peppery, earthy, herbal hop and grain husk bitterness. Among the harsher Duponts brews.

willisread (2268) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya shared a tasting. Pours a hazy light brown with a big soapy saison-like head. Dried prune and apricot on the nose with some bread dough and dupont yeast. The fruit really comes out as it warms up. Almost like a fig compote on whole-grain bread. The alcohol is there, but not overly so. Nice fruity and dry finish.

Bottled 750ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Darker orange/amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, sweetish nose. Moderate malty, caramel, slightly sugary and spicy with notes of fruits and yeast. Noticable alcohol as well. Not bad but Cervesia is better.

_angst_ (4464) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy goldenish brown with a huge frothy and fizzy goldenish offwhite head that leaves some sticky lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly malty, fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic with white bread, sourdough crackers, marzipan covered baked pears, cinnamon apples, moist hay, moist wood, moist soil, white pepper corns, lemon zest and hints of glue. Taste is sweet, fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is sweet with caramel, dark bread, baked pears, apricots, moist hay, moist soil, white pepper corns and lemon peal. Drinkable but not really my cup if tea atm.

Taste comprises earthy tones, bitter orange, light spice, hay, wooded notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid for the style.

Otwarcie korka kończy się pokaźnym strzałem jak przy szampanie, piwo delikatnie podnosi się ku górze, ale nie wylatuje z butelki. Po przelaniu do sniftera tworzy się spora, drobna, kremowa piana, dość trwała i tworząca nieśmiały lajsing, barwa jasno bursztynowa, pomarańczowa, mętna - wewnątrz pływają drobinki chmielowo-drożdżowe. Aromat jasnych winogron, brzoskwiń, trawy cytrynowej, białego wina i delikatnej stajni - pięknie jest to skomponowane i dość intensywne. W smaku jest fantastycznie orzeźwiająco, delikatna winogronowa słodycz przeplata się z muśnięciem pomarańczowej kwaskowatości, nuty półwytrawnego wina łączą się z belgijskimi przyprawami, goryczka bardzo subtelna, ziołowo-alkoholowa. Nagazowanie drobne, musujące, średniej intensywności i takie samo odczucie pełni w ustach, w afterteasie natomiast lekka taniniczność, szorstkość starego drewna na języku, alkohol świetnie domyka całości niepozornym ciepłem w gardle. Taka interpretacja Biere de Garde to ja rozumiem - absolutnie nie jest to nudne piwo. Począwszy od robiącego pozytywne wrażenie opakowania, poprzez fantastyczny aromat, na orzeźwiająco-deserowym smaku kończąc La Biere de Beloeil wypada pozytywnie. Francuski ugrzeczniony styl dostaje tu zdecydowanie szampańskich bąbelek i nieco dzikości, co dostarcza nam nie lada atrakcji sensoryczno-degustatorskich...
